New Brunswick, N.J. – To kick off National Pizza Day (February 9) and Super Bowl LVIII (February 11), one of the biggest days of the year for pizza sales, PETA has drafted its picks for the Top 10 Vegan Pizzas in the U.S., and with its decadent Mackin’ Out Pizza—loaded with house-made Mackin’ Cheeze that’s made with a sweet potato truffle cashew cream, smoked shiitake mushrooms, roasted broccoli, and red pepper flakes—locally based pie purveyor Veganized has scored a spot on the list.
“No matter how you slice it, the delectable Mackin’ Out Pizza from Veganized delivers flavor that can’t be topped,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “Every mouth-watering pizza on PETA’s list proves that eating vegan is a winning game plan.”
Every person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals each year daily suffering and a terrifying death and reduces their own risk of developing heart disease and cancer. PETA’s free vegan starter kit can help those looking to make the switch.
Veganized will receive a framed certificate from PETA along with bragging rights. Other winners include the Non Meat Lovers pizza at Slice of Vegas Pizza Kitchen & Bar in Las Vegas; the Pickle Back pizza at The Hop Craft Pizza & Beer in Richmond, Virginia; and the Bangkok pizza at Red House Pizza in San Diego.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—points out that Every Animal Is Someone and offers free Empathy Kits for people who need a lesson in kindness. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, or Instagram.
