Vegan Options at MOD Pizza (Updated 2022)

Vegan Options at MOD Pizza

The vegan options at MOD Pizza are plentiful! As of August 31, 2021, MOD began offering a Plant-Based Italian Sausage to go with their Vegan Cheese, Vegan Dough, multiple Vegan Sauces and TONS of Veggies.

While MOD does have “suggested” pizza combos to choose from, they do not offer one that is vegan as-is so we suggest going with the create-your-own ordering style.

All the toppings you can pile on your pizza for 1 price!

The create your own ordering style also makes MOD great for ordering a salad and they have plenty of vegan dressings.

Think of it as a Chipotle-style counter-serve pizza joint, but for pizza. Definitely worth a try! Here’s everything vegan at MOD pizza:

Does MOD Pizza have vegan meat?

Are MOD Pizza garlic strips vegan?

The garlic strips at MOD Pizza are vegan WITH a modification. Be sure to order them with NO cheese or replace with their dairy-free Daiya vegan cheese.

Does MOD Pizza have vegan cheese?

Yes! MOD Pizza carries vegan cheese (although they don’t seem to like to give out this information, it’s Daiya)

Are MOD Pizza cinnamon strips vegan?

We have confirmed the Cinnamon Strips are no longer available. 

Can I eat WFPB (whole food plant based) at MOD Pizza?

The original and gluten-free crusts both contain oil so a pizza is not an option; however, you can get a Salad. Top your Greens with any of the veggies except for the roasted broccoli, roasted garlic or corn–they all contain oil.

None of the salad dressings are oil-free but you could use Red Wine Vinegar, the Balsamic Fig Glaze, BBQ Swirl, Hot Buffalo Sauce or even their Red Sauce, aka pizza sauce. Please note: the spicy red sauce, dairy-free cheese and the new plant-based Italian sausage contain oil.

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: We just had our first MOD Pizza experience recently. I started with the red sauce, garlic & basil. Vegan Cheese, more vegan cheese, then jalapenos, pineapple (don’t judge me), roasted corn & red peppers, oregano and finished it off with the BBQ Drizzle. It was seriously amazing. One of the better vegan pizzas I’ve had thus far.

Jen’s Pick: While Ryan went a bit lighter on the toppings, I have quite the list! When I do not have to pay extra for toppings, I play the game of, “how many can I fit on the pizza?” Here we go: red sauce, garlic, basil, vegan cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes, green bell peppers, pineapple, red onion, the greek olive mix, corn, broccoli and artichokes.

Then after cooking, a drizzle of the fig balsamic glaze. I’ll be honest the crust is a little thin for all of the toppings, but that’s what a fork and getting a little messy is for. Yum!
