Meshek Barzilay

By trade, an all-star vegan restaurant in the heart of Neve Tzedek better sport an all-star vegan pizza. Meshek Barzilay's meat-less pizza is served up with cashews and nuts, plus Kalamata olives, roquette and artichoke or smoked seitan, onion rings (more like yum-ion rings) and green peppers. Both are so insanely pizza-licious you'll have to come back to try the other–or bring a date and go ham(-free) on both at once.

Donattelo

About two months ago, Donattelo made its transition from Sarona to the Ibn Gvirol-Jabotinsky junction, and as part of the move, they decided to lavish the vegans with a delicious new line of vegan pizzas. Their cashew-based cheese is generously sprinkled (a rarity in the vegan pizza world), which makes for a melty, flavor-packed pizza. In addition, the variety of toppings piled atop their thin crust is among the widest in the vegan sector, and includes winning combinations such as spicy green pepper and pineapple. And yes, they do deliver.

When you add a generous amount of artichokes and seitan to that, you won't be able to stop crying out in pleasure. The next best thing since the orgasm came along.
