Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: The Pacific Rim with vegan cheese and jerk tofu. One of my favorite pizzas that I get anywhere. Yes, a pizza with pineapples on it is one of my favorites. The contrast of heat and sweet on this pizza is outstanding.

Jen’s Pick: I was always a fan of the Thai Dye Pizza made vegan. I’m not sure why Mellow Mushroom discontinued it when you can still order all the ingredients and create your own. Pick either crust with olive oil and garlic base, tofu, vegan cheese, roma tomatoes and caramelized onions. Top with basil, cucumbers and sweet chili sauce.

Updated Review 5.26.21: While the Thai Dye is my favorite, I did just try the Kosmic Karma with vegan cheese and no pesto swirl. I really was not expecting much but a Cheese or Margherita style pizza but it tasted well above what I was thinking. I’ve also had the Pacific Rim the way Ryan gets it and the Kosmic Karma came out ahead of it even, for me.
