Eating Vegan – Zizzi
Zizzi is now the first national chain to offer vegan pizza (not just a no-cheese pizza!) a move that I hope will make the other Italian chains realize there is a need, and follow suit! 🙂 They have added nine new items to their menu, all vegan! But don't forget to ask for the vegan version of each as some have a non-vegan version (containing dairy).
