Yes, believe it or not, dairy-free pizza is delicious and not impossible to find. In fact, Hoboken + Jersey City are both riddled with local spots that offer up more than just the ordinary veggie toppings. Instead, these locales serve numerous vegan pies complete with vegan cheese and are delicious to boot. Here’s a roundup of vegan pizza spots in Hoboken, Jersey City, and beyond for your dairy-free + vegan needs.

Hungry Like The Wolf | 700 1st Street, Hoboken
This delivery/takeout pizza spot is 100% vegan. While continually experimenting with new flavors, the menu consists of five solid vegan staples guaranteed to please: Buffalo Cauliflower (roasted cauliflower, buffalo sauce, vegan cheese, vegan ranch, and cilantro), Impossible Pizza (impossible “meat,” caramelized onions, vegan tomato sauce, pickled jalapeño, fresh tomatoes, vegan cheddar, and chives), BBQ Jackfruit (pulled BBQ jackfruit, pineapple, red onions, vegan mozzarella, scallion, and vegan bbq sauce), Vegan Vodka (broccoli, roasted red peppers, vegan mozzarella, and vegan vodka sauce — a personal favoite), and the classic Margherita (vegan tomato sauce, vegan mozzarella, fresh basil, olive oil drizzle). Be sure to also try the delicious vegan brownies while there. Please note: This spot is not gluten-free.
The Brick | 1122 Washington Street, Hoboken
The Brick’s entire vegan menu is pretty incredible — including penne vodka + eggplant parm (some are even gluten-free, annnd they have VEGAN mozz sticks!). But the Buffalo Chicken Pizza, the BBQ pizza — made with pulled young jackfruit and red onions, sautéed in BBQ sauce — and the vegan Margherita pizza are the best. Each of the restaurant’s six pies can be made gluten-free upon request, too. Just make sure to ask about some of the toppings, as the vegan chicken is not gluten-free, but all pies can be made GF.
Tony Boloney’s | 263 1st Street, Hoboken
Tony Boloney’s not only features an extensive vegan pizza menu using nut-free vegan cheese, but it also has a “Build Your Own Vegan Pizza” menu. And the toppings aren’t your run-of-the-mill veggie toppings. We’re talking vegan eggplant meatball, vegan pepperoni, potato chips, pumpkin seeds, crushed peanuts, eggplant cutlet, and broccoli rabe. Please note that the gluten-free crust is not vegan.
Ready to order vegan pies include the Phoni Roni (picy marinara, vegan mozzarella, and vegan pepperoni for $17.50, $30, or $5), Wok-A-Flaka Za (red curry, Brussel sprouts, bamboo, sesame seed, and Thai basil for $15, $25, or $4.5), Veatball That Mama Never made (breadcrumb, eggplant meatball, garlic + herbs, marinara, vegan mozzarella for $17.50, $30, or $5), and so much more.

Porta | 135 Newark Avenue, Jersey City
Porta has both a vegan and vegetarian menu of pizzas. The three vegan pies on the menu include the Marinara (San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, oregano, and extra virgin olive oil), Rita + Mark (San Marzano tomatoes, vegan mozzarella, vegan parm, garlic, dried oregano, basil, and extra virgin olive oil), Snawzeech (San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, cashew ricotta, broccoli rabe, vegan sausage, crushed red pepper, and extra virgin olive oil). And while Porta does not allow for any substitutions, the restaurant is happy to make any deletions, so all of the five vegetarian pies can be made vegan by removing the cheese.
Two Boots | 133 Newark Avenue, Jersey City
Two Boots, known for its delicious cornmeal crusts, has a very popular V for Vegan pie available by the slice. But taking a look at the menu, you will be pleasantly surprised that there are seven different vegan pizzas available for purchase by the pie (small, medium, large) – Earth Mother Pizza, Super Vegan Pizza, Vegan Larry Tate (a white pie with no marinara sauce), Vegan Tony Clifton Pizza, V for Vegan Pizza, the Bubba Pizza, and Vegan Night Tripper Pizza.
