Here are 10 places that serve vegan pizza in Dublin which simply hits the spot:
Aperitivo pizzeria, at the edge of Temple Bar, is one of our favorite spots in Dublin. It’s a small, friendly, with great atmosphere! Whenever we stop here with the Vegan Dublin Food Tour guests – we get happy guest looks all around as soon as we walk through the door. Something here is just right; and that’s also reflected in their loyal crowd which keeps coming back.
Aperitivo’s pizza: The management of Aperitivo really goes all out thinking about their vegan and gluten-free clientele. And when it comes to pizza – you’ll have lots of choice with their full vegan menu which includes various vegan pizza options, which can also be made with a gluten-free crust! Our favourites are their Vegan Green (made with vegan pesto sauce instead of the traditional tomato base), and their Meat Feast – yes, that’s right: a vegan pizza covered in vegan cheese, bacon and sausages! – They just did that.
Other vegan options at Aperitivo: In addition to their pizza, Aperitivo also offers vegan paninis (our favorite is the vegan BLT), and daily changing desserts (Yes to Vegan Tiramisu and their Scrumptious chocolate cake!). One thing is sure – they have the recipe to make you leave happy.

We can’t start talking about DiFontaine’s without saying how impressed we are with this pizzeria’s vegan-friendly spirit! When they decided to launch their vegan pizza, they first held a tastings event, asking vegans to come try their different vegan pizza options and help them decide which should go on the menu. If that doesn’t sound like a business that totally gets it – we don’t know what is!
The pizza: The winner of the tastings menu, and the pizza that the vegan vote went, to was DiFontaine’s 3 Vegan Cheese blend (made with a combination of vegan Mozzarella shreds, vegan parmesan AND their very own, homemade Cashew Ricotta!). This pizza is now the vegan star of DiFontaine’s Pizzeria, and we, for one, simply can’t wait to try it!
