Planta Eastern Promises Pizza | Plant Based Toronto

Pizza Week | Planta – Eastern Promises


Welcome to Pizza week here at PBT!

Every month we will be exploring Toronto’s awesome monthly vegan pizza specials.

There is some very serious plant-based vegan pizza happening here in our city.

2 spots (that I am aware of) are dreaming up monthly specials for us all to enjoy.

That is Planta and Apiecalypse.

It’s our aim here at PBT to enjoy them all 🙂

This month, Apiecalypse have been verrrry busy with the opening of their second location on the East Side at 862 Pape Ave!

So we’ll be extra happy to try their new pie next month once they’re settled into their new spot!

Today though, Kailee Mandel from Kailee Mandel Photography and I, made our way down to Planta.

……and we ate pizza.

You’ll see our pizza didn’t actually have the cucumber yogurt on it on it as we ordered it on the side.

Often a good idea when sampling something new. 

The pizza was very light, crisp, spicy cause of the Anaheim chilies but also cool and crunchy cause of the cucumber, quinoa, and green herbs.

I definitely enjoyed it. 

If I ordered it again, I would ask for extra eggplant and red pepper sauce.

We both preferred it without the cucumber yogurt but you can decide that for yourself!

At the end of our meal, Devin, our waiter, who is a real straight-shooter with upper management written all over him, well he ended up surprising us with a gift. 

The gift of cake.

This cake was very moist (I know everyone hates that word but it was) and im glad it was, cause I hate dry cake

It was also dense, sweet, and spicy with the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg and although I’m not sure if there is ginger in this recipe the carrot slivers remind me enough of ginger to make me believe that there is.

The words coconut cheesecake frosting…..

Well, they speak for themselves.

See you at the next meal!
