I’m a big fan of pizza in Paris. In fact, I keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger… if you know what I mean.
It’s not that I enjoy eating pizza, which I do, but you can count of finding a vegetarian meal at any pizza place. Even vegans can request a pizza sans fromage. This is especially true when I’m outside Paris and looking for a bite to eat.
Yesterday I was shopping at a vide grenier with my friend Victoria and her son Tristan. We started looking for some shelter and lunch when the rain changed from an annoying drizzle to an official parade of rain drops. The first bistro we popped into specialized in fish. As we all know, fish restaurants typically have the worst vegetarian options. So we left and voila, Viva La Pizza was next door and calling our names.
Viva La Pizza
First off, the ambiance. This is a simple restaurant, comfortable, no music, no frills, and friendly service. More importantly, their menu is filled with inventive pizza choices. They have 8 vegetarian pizza options! There’s another 5 or 6 that could become vegetarian by requesting no bacon (lardons).
The honey pizza was an unusual flavor combo. I think it would have been better with some walnuts, but I did enjoy it. It was actually fairly light tasting and not too sweet.
Viva La Pizza was also affordable, most of their pizzas are less than 10euros. So to recap, you’ve got a simple, comfortable pizzeria with loads of vegetarian options for a reasonable cost. I call that a winner. Viva La Pizza!
