Panago Pizza is Unsurpassed for Dairy-Free and Plant-Based Options

24

Updated in 2021! Have you heard? Panago Pizza offers an expansive vegan menu! Several years ago, this popular Canadian pizza chain recognized the growing demand for dairy-free options. So they added dairy-free cheese to their menu, reformulated some of their crusts, and even added a whole selection of plant-based pizzas to their regular menu.

Ordering Vegan at Panago Pizza

All of the dairy-free menu items listed above are also vegan, except for the obvious meat items and any items noted as containing egg. All five of the crusts at Panago Pizza, including the gluten-free one, are dairy-free and egg-free. They call it a “gluten smart” crust rather than gluten-free, because gluten cross-contamination is a risk at Panago Pizza. But as “smart” Go Dairy Free readers know, allergen cross-contamination is always a possibility in restaurant kitchens.

For the most part, the Vegan-Friendly menu below holds true. It was released in 2016, so a couple of the sauces have changed, and they’ve actually added a couple more choices. So enjoy the one below for quick reference, but see our dairy-free guide above for the most current options.

Ordered off the plant-based menu

Rated 5 out of 5
March 18, 2021

I was excited to try their plant-based menu, so we ordered a few pizzas. And I couldn’t resist getting side salads with their dairy-free Italian dressing. My favorite pizza was probably the Pepperoni with pineapple and banana peppers. The flavor and texture reminded me so much of what I remember pepperoni pizza tasting like that it was impossible to resist. The other toppings contrasted for amazing sweet and spicy flavors and the crust was soft. One of the pizzas we ordered was on the gluten-free crust. It was good too, with a thin, crispy texture that held up well under a pile of veggie toppings. Our household included vegans and omnivores, and everyone liked the meat-free pepperoni. The Daiya cheese got mixed reviews. We all agreed it would be best with just a “light” amount of Daiya. And I have to mention the salads. They were bright green and topped with loads of delicious vegetables. Even the vinaigrette impressed.

  1. Love when these pizza places offer the dairy free alternatives! Although to be honest, Daiya is not my favorite, and that’s always what the ones here have. I wish we could get the Miyoko Mozz in there!! Most of the time, I just go cheeseless and load up the toppings. Hot banana peppers are my favorite!!

    • I think they use Daiya because it’s nut-free, too. Pizza places are often a “safe” restaurant for those with nut allergies, so they may not want to introduce nuts into the environment.

  2. Love my pizza! Craving one with banana peppers right now and heck maybe even all the toppings like a “garbage” pizza. Dang I have to wait 3 days to get my pizza fit. Adding Panago to my list though.

  3. I love it when restaurants get it! Panago clearly goes above and beyond to fulfill the customer’s dietary needs. I’d choose a bbq chicken pizza with onions on the gluten-smart crust! YUM!
