Five types of veggies crammed onto a pizza at Part Time Su 偶爾素一下 in Taipei.

Every time I get pizza, I always opt for whichever has the most meat.  Sometimes it may be called meat lover’s pizza, or four sausage pizza, but as long as it’s covered with meat I’m up for it.  I had to change my strategy at Part Time Su 偶爾素一下  in Taipei since it’s a vegan pizza place.  Can a pizza be called such without a quarter pound of sausage lathered on top?  I enter a disturbing, yet tasty world of meatless pizza after the jump.

Part Time Su is not only vegan, but also claims to be environmentally friendly.  Their mission statement talks a lot about “changing perspective” and “promoting interpersonal communication”, but I just came here for the pizza.  Since it’s vegan, the pizzas use vegan cheese.  I must say it’s convincing enough, I didn’t even think that it wasn’t cheese when scarfing it down.

The menu is pretty typical of what you would expect.  You have mushroom pizza, four cheese, margarita and so forth, but it also has some more interesting options like apple, banana, and kimchi pizza.  Prices average about to about 150NT for a nine incher and 220NT for twelve inches.  The side dishes are sparse, but I did grab some 60NT fries.  Not a large quantity, but I thought they were great.  The ingredients here are certainly the highlight, and you won’t find any gross pizza grease covering up your napkins.  I had a rosemary potato pizza and tried some five vegetable pizza as well.  I thought both were very good, though I had a bit of a potato overload with the fries and my dish combined.

Part Time Su offers a good alternative to meat pizzas.  The prices are fair and the pizzas are among the healthier ones.  Vegetarians who are craving the dish or pizza lovers who want to try something new should check it out.  Here are some photos from the Beitou store.

The rosemary potato pizza may not have a diversity of ingredients, but it's still wonderful.
