Updated in 2021! If you love building your own dairy-free pizza, then Pie Five is worth a visit. They offer dairy-free cheese, traditional and gluten-free crusts, and a plethora of toppings for creating your own pie, calzone, pasta, or salad. All of their dairy-free items are also vegan-friendly, except for the meats. But this year, Pie Five has added vegan Impossible meatballs to even the score.
