Not Sizzle, but Rocco's Pizza (across from Powells, downtown) has had a 'vegan pizza' sign in their window for at least a couple of years. Has anyone ever had a vegan pizza there, and if so, how was it?


Rocco's vegan slice isn't anything special. It consists of crust and red sauce with a various array of vegtables.

Okay, thanks. I've always felt guilty about not going in, when they've gone to the effort of a nice sign. But that certainly doesn't sound worth it.


Especially whenever not very far down the road Eat Pizza uses Daiya and Pizza Oasis uses Teese!!! and I think XV uses veganrella.

Rocco's does have the most generous portion of veggies I've seen, though, and the last few times I've been there they didn't have a vegan pie on hand so they whip up one gigantic slice instead

I think Rocco's uses cardboard for crust, seriously disappointing.

How's Eat Pizza? I've been to the Hot Lips by PGE Park but haven't seen that one before...

Alan - I wouldn't doubt it. That's some forked up crust, which is sad for such a giant slice...like it doesn't have yeast or something.

I am in love with this place! I'm normally a thick crust kind of person (yah, yah, it's not real pizza, whatevs), but it's so nice to have a huge variety of vegan options and great atmosphere and awesome people working there and delicious toppings and boooooze!

So far I've had

*spiral tap (which they always seem to have) - i like that oniony sauce thing
*thunder and lightening (daiya and fake pepperoni) - HOLY YES.
*new maps out of hell (with artichoke hearts, mmmm)
*drugs benedict with bloody mary - bloody was a shorty, but for a $6 combo and all the mostly vodka drink, i was satisfied.

oh, and it's fun to eat there during brunch and here "hey, cook up some more drugs! we need more drugs out here!"

Have we talked about this in person yet? Obviously I haven't had their normal crust, but it looks good. Gluten-free crust was good for gluten-free crust, you know.

I am kinda bored by Spiral Tap, it needs a topping or something!
I've been there about 6 or 7 times now and every time i've gone they only had Spiral Tap and Maps Out of Hell (and once Drugs Benedict). I was psyched last time i was there because I thought the vegetarian pepperoni pizza was all vegan (i just spotted the vegan pepperoni part, but then read the rest...) so i asked if they ever have the Thunder & Lightning (aka vegan pepperoni) and they said they sometimes do. my friend was there the next day and they had, so i have high hopes that next time i come in, they have it!

Sizzle Pie is awesome, however expensive for a small pie. 18 bucks.

I had my second experience with too-hard crust yesterday. Like, would have to be dipped in sauce to get to an edible consistency.

Also: they don't have plans for delivery anytime soon.

p.s. that being said, a slice & rabbit salad combo is still a great lunch.

THIS PLACE IS SO DELISH. I was bummed at first because neither of the vegan pies (drugs benedict and Spiral Tap) looked like what I was craving, but I got a slice of each and the flavors are forking AWESOME. For being so minimal, spiral tap was surprisingly flavorful.

I want to buy all of their vegan pies and eat them all by myself.

I'm working at a small pizza/pasta place that delivers in PDX and trying to convince the owner to carry vegan cheese.....! I hope she does cause we can make baked spaghetti, pizza, calzones, etc all for delivery. If it goes down, I'll let you dudes know!

i have requested (via twitter), in a roundabout way, that they make some other slice besides Spiral Tap as a regular slice. why do they have it EVERY SINGLE TIME? no, seriously, it's a boring slice. good. but hella (yes, hella) boring.
i don't want to pay $3 for a slice that only has sauces on it. and when there's only 2 options for me, i don't want to see it every time...it's like they're only giving me 1 option...
ok, done whining.

you're such a whiner! I don't like that slice either, but my guess that it's probably just cheap and easy.

In the Spiral Tap defense, that slice tastes amazing when it comes fresh out of the oven.

But yah, would be nice if they mixed it up.

i'm not doubting it's tastiness. i just think the lack of toppings make me think of it more in the breadstick sense than a slice of pizza. i love breadsticks. i enjoy them with a slice of pizza.

I like the Sizzle Pie experience, because it reminds me of growing up, going out and grabbing a slice and some root beer with friends. The pizza isn't bad, but it's not phenomenal. I'm just pizza spoiled, I think.

I am also interested in the answers to both of these questions.

Working on it! :D

We just got some vegan caeser dressing today since none of our salad dressings were vegan, yay! So sad when vinaigrettes have cheese in them...lame...
I know they are revising the menu as of May, but we'll have the vegan cheese available before that.

The delivery range is zip codes 97212, 97211, 97204, 97209, 97214.

I will post a new thread with all the details when they get it ironed out! Hopefully soon!
