The Power of 'Za

When I want food in a hurry, I can think of no greater gift than p to tha izza. My boyz Leo, Raph, Mikey, and Donnie weren’t faking the funk. A great slice of pie will bring the cowabunga out of anybody. The greatest thing about the past few years is how many national chains are providing vegan cheese to the masses. In San Antonio, you can grab yourself a slice at franchises like Mod Pizza, Urban Bricks, and Pieology. However, there is one game in town you just do not want to miss.

Pizza Classics is a happening pizza spot located on N. St. Mary’s, right across the street from the Bombay Bicycle Club. A short walk from Brackenridge Park and the Japanese Tea Gardens, it is in the middle of a developing neighborhood. Expect some construction and a bit of congestion at times. Tucked away in a tiny parking lot, this space fills up quickly at peak times. The restaurant is fun, with colorful green walls covered in license plates. A juke box sits next to the soda machine playing tunes as patrons scarf down on some delicious food. There are a handful of booths and small tables, enough to come with a partner or with the homies.

How vegan-friendly is it? 4 out of 5 nooches. Marinara and olive oil are vegan. I’m not sure about the bbq sauce, so ask. Veggie toppings include: Mushrooms, Onions, Green Peppers, Black Olives, Green Olives, Tomatoes, Jalapenos, Pineapple, Banana Peppers, Garlic, Spinach, and Basil. The regular crust is vegan, but I’m not sure about gluten free. Garden salad with Italian dressing is vegan, but you have to say “no croutons.”

So, the next time you’re craving something quick and easy for that Game of Thrones rewatch, slide on over to Pizza Classics and up your vegan pizza game.
