I can’t remember exactly how it was that I heard about Vinnie’s Pizzeria but, my goodness, I’m so glad that I went there. The first time I had their pizza was at their Greenpoint location with my cousin. We were both starving and walked quite a ways to the pizzeria and were welcomed by the strong aroma of fresh pizza and garlic (I’m drooling just thinking about it!). They have a wide selection of omnivore and vegan pizzas, and will top any of the vegan slices with daiya if you’d like.
After talking with one of the guys that works there, I picked out the SUPER LOADED Veggie pizza and had them put Daiya Mozzarella on top of it, along with the T. Hanks BBQ Chicken Pizza. Both slices were SO good, honestly some of the best pizza I’ve ever had, besides my homemade pizza of course. 😉
The Veggie slice was topped with steamed broccoli, artichoke hearts, black olives, oven-roasted bell peppers, garlic sauteed spinach, onions, and mushrooms; I told you it was loaded! The T. Hanks slice was covered in mozzarella and cheddar shreds, BBQ chicken, red onion and BBQ Sauce; look at that picture and tell me that you’re not drooling!
The next time I went to Vinnie’s was with my boyfriend, and we made a late night stop by the Williamsburg location. I went against my craving for a gooey, cheesy daiya covered slice of pizza pie and went with a BBA slice topped with black beans, avocado slices, pico de gallo and faux feta. And on the side? Gluttony! Kidding… sort of. 😀 It was actually a faux ham and cheese roll paired with marinara sauce. Yum!
I’d have to say, I did love the ham roll and the pizza was good; but, I loved the Greenpoint location better. The people that worked there were super down to earth and it was more of a family spot, as opposed to the slightly obnoxious, hipster crowd of the Williamsburg location. I strongly recommend that you head over to the location nearest to you!
