High Street Pizza - Vegan Options

Pizza again! Plant-based cheese has become an affordable and really delicious and melty commodity. I currently have a fridge full of Violite shreds as Save-On had it on sale for a couple of weeks and it is so good! There is no excuse for a pizza joint not to have at least a couple of vegan options but it is up to customers to ask for it. In the meantime, I will continue to let you know what I find!

High Street Pizza is located just behind Coquitlam Centre Mall at 1153 The High Street. HSP is a small operation and not a part of a chain making it somehow more impressive that they offer plant-based choices. Our Plant Curious coupon book led us here!
They offer 2 Vegan Pizzas here and on the surface they don't sound overly exciting but we persevered! The first is the Vegan Spinach Pizza. We fully expected to be overwhelmed by spinach but the green stuff was only a small part of this. It starts with an tomato sauce and in addition to the spinach includes tomatoes, mushroom and an impressive quantity of very good vegan cheese. The most impressive part was the crust itself. It was just nicely charred and crispy and reheated very well in our oven on a pizza stone at home.
The other vegan Pizza offering at HS is the Vegan Corn Pizza. Totally weird, right? Somehow this really worked! Corn and black olives were the main performers here and who knew that they would play together so well! Again, lots of cheese. Italians will be freaking out but I have to tell you that this was a pretty good pizza!
There are a couple of tables at High Street Pizza and one outside but clearly this is a takeout joint. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the pizza and we had a nice chat with the very personable manager. There may be only 2 vegan pizzas on the menu but if they become popular (they should!) maybe the menu will expand.
