Pizza is probably one of the most popular meals amongst the other inhabitants of my apartment building. How do I know that? Because my neighbours like to leave their empty pizza boxes (and bags of household rubbish) festering in the communal halls for a few days before taking them out to the bins. At first, I thought maybe this was normal in the Czech Republic. Maybe I was a highly strung Brit. But conversations with my students and friends have revealed that this is not the case: I just happen to share a building with complete slobs. Fortunately, this has not enraged me to the point that I’m no longer able to eat the good stuff – when it gets to that stage, I’m going to fly into a murderous rage (by which I mean, write a passive aggressive note to the offenders).
Every city needs a great place for vegan pizza, and this is Prague’s. It also serves meaty and vegetarian pizzas, so it’s great when you’re in a group with various diets: nobody will be complaining.
It’s far away from the main tourist drag, but within easy walking distance of Krizikova stop on the yellow Metro line and well worth the trip. Vegans are given our own menu and two choices of sauce: one tomato-based, the other creamy. This is topped with Wilmersburger cheese, and five from a list of vegetable toppings. I usually keep things simple with olives, garlic and mushrooms, but there are more vegetable choices too (nothing fake meaty, though).
The pizza is great, and the cheese really elevates it – it’s definitely the best vegan cheese I’ve had on a pizza. It’s also a nice little restaurant – we sat outside in the summer, and were cosy and warm inside during the winter (alas, smoking is permitted inside, though there is a non-smoking section too).
I believe it also does takeaway. Please dispose of the boxes responsibly.
Wow, i knew really thought of this while in prague. I have been trying to become vegan for awhile.
The Veganuary website has lots of great info on switching to a vegan diet: https://veganuary.com/ And while you’re travelling, you can use https://www.happycow.net/ to find vegan options too. Let me know if you have any questions, I’d be happy to help!
Oh. Definitely want to go back to Prague one day! It’s been nearly 10 years, and it was not so easy at that time to find something vegeterian (wasn’t vegan back then).
I’ve heard other people say that as well. We’ve been here for about a year and a half now, and there are constantly new vegan places opening up. It’s a great place to live!
I’m super happy that vegan cheese is popping up on pizza menus all over the world!
It’s definitely good news! And I believe it was a result of some local vegans campaigning and asking every pizzeria in town to cater for vegans – two pizzerias agreed to it!
Wow. That sounds awful that people leave their trash in the halls! Sounds like it would attract a lot of pests. o__o
But that pizza does look pretty good.
It’s ridiculous, isn’t it? We had to complain to the owner of the building and the situation has improved now, thankfully.
