A 3-Day Pizza Diet

Our celebration of Vegan Pizza Day continues… By Izzy Arhbeck, Directory Assistant If you are like me and cannot live a day without thinking about pizza, you will appreciate this post.

That’s because vegan pizza options have been growing in Toronto for years, and have especially exploded in the last 18 months. It all started over a decade ago when Amato’s began selling vegan slices. Well before the days of Daiya Cheese, they simply omitted the cheese but not the flavour, and to this day they sell their… Read More
