Have you ever been hanging out with friends when they decide to go grab pizza at a notoriously not-vegan-friendly pizzeria? I’ve been there. Or, even worse…have you ever called your local pizza chain to order a veganized pizza only to hear a long silence on the other side of the phone, followed by…
As much as we strive to eat healthy and wholesome meals, sometimes you’ve gotta order something fast and convenient. You know, those times when life gets busy, or you’re traveling without access to fresh food, or you find yourself on a late-night pizza excursion with friends.
For any number of reasons, you may find yourself at Domino’s one day wondering what the heck you can order that’s vegan. And sista’, when that day comes, we’ve got your back.
It may seem like your choices are limited simply because there aren’t any labeled vegan options, but fret not! There’s actually quite a lot you can find on the menu that’s vegan at Domino’s.
Domino’s currently has just one vegan-compliant pizza crust (and no vegan meats or cheeses), but they’ve got lots of sauces and toppings. We’ve laid them out for your below. And to take it one step further, Michelle Cehn, Toni Okamoto and Vince Lia, filmed a video taking us through the steps of ordering the best of vegan at Domino’s.
Spoiler alert! It’s not just about eliminating non-vegan ingredients from the menu classics. That would be really boring food! You have to double up on the “accidentally vegan” ones. Their chunky robust tomato sauce, yummy jalapeños, and garlic dipping sauce make any vegan version of their pizzas better.
