Vegan Soy Cheese Pizza at Pizza Fusion

Vegan options are showing up more regularly on mainstream restaurant menus. For vegans in the northern New Jersey area longing for their days of cheese-topped pizza, Pizza Fusion has come to the rescue with vegan (casein-free) soy cheese. They have vegan brownies listed on their dessert menu, but they said their distributor wasn't shipping to the Northeast stores. How disappointing!

The Fusion Side Salad. Organic spring mix, cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onions. $4.75.

I selected the personal size Very Vegan (roasted garlic and mushrooms) with a multi-grain crust, $9. But you can definitely build your own pizza with your favorite veggies. Delicious. I'll be back for more.

Cool, basic furniture, made from reclaimed wood. Being 'green' and 'eco-friendly' are big marketing terms nowadays, but this chain practices what it preaches.

Visit their first New Jersey location in Ridgewood on 33 Godwin Ave., across the street from Whole Foods Market. A total of 11 are slated to open in the next three years, great news for vegans in the Garden State.
