With more and more people going vegan all the time (hooray!), it’s not hard to find vegan pizza options, especially in a vegan friendly place like Austin, TX. If you’re vegan and also gluten free though (like me), it can be a little trickier since not all pizza places have gluten free crusts, and if they do, some gluten free crusts contain non-vegan ingredients like eggs, dairy, or honey.
So I created this pizza guide for all of the gluten free vegans out there (and the gf/dairy free peeps). If you’re vegan but not gluten free, check out The Lazy Smurf’s Austin Vegan Pizza Guide!
I’ve sampled quite a few of these options (as pictured) but not all. If I missed anywhere, please let me know! Have you tried any places that have vegan and gluten free pizza in Austin? Let me know in the comments!
Notes: I avoid gluten but don’t have Celiac–call to ask about potential cross contamination. I’ve done my best to make sure this guide is accurate, but I also recommend double checking to make sure everything is vegan, especially if it’s not listed as vegan on the menu/website since recipes and ingredients can change. The options are listed with the one’s I’ve tried first, then the rest.
Vegan & Gluten-free Crust with Vegan Cheese
Li’l Nonna’s (East Riverside)
Li’l Nonna’s is a vegetarian pizza trailer (update 2019: Li’l Nonna’s is now completely vegan!) next to The Buzzmill on Riverside that has housemade vegan/gf crust (10″), cheeses, and meats! I love the “meat out” pizza with beeteroni and spicy tempeh. They also have a deep dish gluten free crust that’s really good, but it isn’t always available, so check ahead of time. They deliver through Favor and Amazon Prime Now. Warning: they are closed on Mondays.
MOD Pizza (multiple locations)
MOD Pizza is a build-your-own pizza chain that offers vegan/gf crust and Daiya cheese with locations on Riverside, Mueller Market, and the Village at Westgate. Three of their sauces are vegan (red, BBQ, & garlic rub). I love that toppings are unlimited and how quick they are. Their ingredients and allergens are listed here.
Rockin Tomato (Central)
Rockin Tomato is a pizza restaurant and bar on South Lamar that has live music and offers a house milled 10″ vegan and gluten free organic whole grains crust and vegan cheese. I tried it for the first time recently and enjoyed it–I’d ask for extra sauce next time though.
Flaming Pizza (North)
Flaming Pizza is a build your own pizza place at The Domain next to iPic that has a vegan/gluten free crust and vegan cheese. All of their sauces are vegan except for the white sauce. I love piling on veggies there since toppings are unlimited.
Austin’s Pizza (Various locations, delivers)
Austin’s Pizza is an Austin pizza chain that offers Smart Flour Foods 10″ gluten free crusts. You can build your own vegan pizza with veggies and Follow Your Heart vegan mozzarella. The tomato sauce is vegan (the alfredo and pesto have cheese and the buffalo and bbq contain honey.) They deliver, but not to where I live.
Counter Culture (Eastside)
Counter Culture is an all vegan restaurant that offers a daily pizza special and has a gluten free option–they use Smart Flour Foods 10″ crusts as well. I like Smart Flour Foods gf crust, but I make it at home often, so I don’t usually order it when I’m out. I tried one here once a while ago though, and the homemade cheese was tasty.
More vegan/gluten free crust with vegan cheese (I haven’t tried these):
Eastside Pies (Eastside & North locations, delivers) Has vegan/gf crust (10″), vegan cheese, and a variety of vegan sauces (hummus, black bean, marinara, spinach curry, tomatillo, chimmuchurri, and pesto).
Conan’s Pizza (North, South, Central, delivers) Has vegan/gf crust (10″) and Daiya.

Vegan Options (not gluten free)
To save you the time if you’re wondering, the following places have vegan pizza options, but don’t offer gluten free/vegan crusts:
Blaze Pizza used to have a gluten free vegan crust but recently (June 2019) changed their gluten free option to a non-vegan cauliflower crust, which is disappointing because I loved their vegan and gluten free pizza. They still have regular vegan crust, vegan cheese, and spicy vegan chorizo.
Via 313 detroit style pizza is delicious, and they have vegan pizza with Follow Your Heart cheese, but unfortunately their gluten free crust is NOT vegan.
Bistro Vonish– Bistro Vonish is an all vegan food trailer that does have delicious gluten free items on the menu, but their pizzas aren’t gluten free.
Hoboken Pizza has Daiya and house-made vegan tofu ricotta, but no gluten free crust.
The Parlor– The Parlor has vegan cheese and house made vegan meats, but their gluten free crusts are NOT vegan.
Update June 2019: I’m sad to report that the South Austin Z Pizza location closed.
Z Pizza is a vegan-friendly pizza chain with a location on Slaughter Lane that has a vegan/gluten free crust, Daiya, and Beyond Meat crumbles. They have a vegan pizza on the menu (The Berkley vegan), which I get sometimes, but I also often build my own and just load up on veggies with no cheese. I like their gluten free crust (it’s a little sweet–yum.) All of their vegan & gluten free options are listed here. They have a good cash sale Mon.-Thurs. as well.
