At Salt Lake’s first vegan pizza parlor, you’ll discover innovative flavor combinations made using tasty meat and cheese substitutes. From the crust made with local organic flour to the tomatoes from Wyomatoes Organic Farm, Vertical Pizza is all about wholesome quality. Choose a made-to-order custom pie with top-notch ingredients like tempeh bacon and mesquite jackfruit, or peruse the house selections.
I suggest trying the Buffalo Tiger Ranch topped with Spicy Buffalo Tigers (think chicken fingers without the chicken), vegan mozzarella, a drizzle of dairy-free ranch dressing and sliced tomatoes. The pesto fennel sausage pizza is made with rich pesto sauce and vegan sausage (all housemade); caramelized red onion adds a slightly sweet note. There’s even a hearty breakfast pizza on the menu with tofu scramble, savory fennel “sausage” and breakfast potatoes.
Brought to you by the owners of Sage’s Café and Vertical Diner, Vertical Pizza is the best of both worlds. You’ll find the legendary pizza from Sage’s Café along with gems from Vertical Diner, like Tender Tigers (fried, breaded seitan that’s as succulent as your favorite chicken fingers), satisfying meatless sub sandwiches, tempting salads and rich desserts.
You can indulge in all-you-can-eat pizza on Tuesday nights for the low price of $12.75. If beer is your perfect pizza pairing, there are plenty of local brews to quench your thirst, as well as cocktails and wine. Stop by on Monday night to take advantage of the 10 percent Meatless Monday discount.
Vertical Pizza has taken over Vertical Diner’s original location at 2280 S. West Temple, and Vertical Diner has moved to 234 W. 900 South, where Sage’s Café called home for a few years. You can now find Sage’s Café in their new downtown location at 368 E. 100 South.
