4.5 out of 5 stars My meat-eating husband enjoyed the chick-fu pizza as much as I did, which was a lot! The price was reasonable, and we even enjoyed the leftovers the next day. Definitely plan to go back. quinoamania

4 out of 5 stars The reviews listed here for Pizza Plaza are getting old--I think they have definitely improved over the years. I like to build my own vegan pizza with whatever looks good. I once craved spinach/chickn pizza with a "white" sauce pizza and they created a light tahini sauce which was great. Nice vegan desserts. I believe they also have gluten free crust now, on request, for any of you GF diners. LolaBanana

5 out of 5 stars I thought the pizza was excellent. We tried the pesto veggie and the chick-fu. Both were very tasty. We gave the edge to chick-fu because of the sun dried tomatoes. The crust is whole grain with perfect texture, the pesto sauce was great, and there were lots of toppings with not too much cheese, which is best on a vegan pizza. I'd rate them 5+. The cheesecake was excellent, too. kmeldrum

2 out of 5 stars I wasn't a huge fan of Pizza Plaza. I've tried it twice and haven't been impressed either time. There's something off about the sauce, not enough cheese and it seemed like the spices were just kind of thrown on top after the pizza had already been cooked. The veggie chicken resembles sausage more than chicken, there's an odd seasoning to it. I'm all for vegan pizza, but 2 stars for quality. Dana

1.5 out of 5 stars After reading all the rave reviews about the vegan pizza, my actual experience was rather disappointing. Disappointing taste and ingredient quality. I ordered a $30 extra-large pizza with 1/2 Vegan Simple Veggie and 1/2 Vegan Chicken Florentine. The crust was more like soggy cardboard. The sauce was sour and bland. The veggies lacked flavor. The tiny diced chunks of "chicken" could hardly be tasted. And there was hardly any of the vegan cheese. I ended up putting real parmesan on it to give it more flavor. Maybe the real cheese pizza would be better (if they put enough of it on). sodajunkie
