Former owners of The Arthouse are bringing new life to Footscray - not only through live music, but through the magical qualities of vegan pizza!

This pub's menu is currently really simple with homemade corn crust pizza, empanadas, fries and tacos (on Tuesdays). We tried the Veg Ham & Cheese ($10) and the pizza special of the week "The Holy Christo" ($11) which had lots of veggies and chilli harissa. The Veg Ham & Cheese was really simple (just the way I like my pizza…) although the mock ham was probably better described as mock chicken I'd say. 

The pizzas are large and great value and the staff are happy to box up what you can't eat so you can take it home. Good old fashioned service indeed.

An even bigger winner at the Reverence are the homemade vegan empanadas (2 for $6). We tried the black bean ones, which coupled with the creamy dipping sauce (vegan) were absolutely delicious. A potato and vegan chorizo version is also on the menu but wasn't available on our recent visit (we'll be back to try these!). We also had a bowl of spicy fries ($6) which owed their greatness largely to the vegan homemade aioli that accompanied them.

Word has it that the Reverence is currently working on a full mexican menu which will have many vegan options. Footscray locals must be rejoicing!

Hands up if you've ever begrudgingly ordered a vegetarian pizza without cheese because, well quite frankly, that was the only vegan option available.

Well, if you happen to have an Eat Pizza near you (Maribyrnong, Glenroy or Footscray) then you'll never have to settle for a boring takeaway pizza again. Eat Pizza have the standard selection of traditional and gourmet pizzas, BUT… they also offer vegan cheese, vegan salami and vegan ham as optional extras. All of the pizza bases are vegan (including a gluten free option - $2 extra) which means that pretty much every pizza on the menu is veganisable by substituting ingredients rather than omitting them!

My favourite choice at Eat Pizza is basically a vegan capricciosa (tomato sauce, vegan cheese, vegan salami, mushrooms and olives). The salami is even a little bit spicy which makes the pizza extra delicious. For each vegan item (cheese, salami or ham), there is an extra cost of $2 per item for a small pizza, $2.50 per item for medium and $3 per item for a large pizza. This makes the cost of a large vegan capricciosa (pickup) around $18. A small garlic pizza with vegan cheese is $8.

To note: We've only ever ordered from the Glenroy store and while they're getting better, their pricing hasn't always been consistent. Ordering vegan seems to blow the minds of some of the staff and they don't know what they should charge.
