Nothing says pizza party quite like Little Ceasars. Their signature square-cut pizzas and crowd-favorite breadsticks debuted back in 1959 and quickly became the fastest-growing pizza chain in the country.

Although Little Caesar’s doesn’t offer vegan cheese, they have experimented with vegan meats as toppings, including the Impossible sausage. In 2021, Little Caesars made history by becoming the largest chain restaurant in America to offer a vegan pepperoni, Planteroni, at select Little Caesars’  locations across the United States. 

All things considered, Little Caesars makes it pretty easy to order a vegan pizza, albeit cheese-free. With just a few modifications, you’ll be eating vegan here faster than you can say, “Pizza! Pizza!”

Treehugger Tip

Be sure to ask at your local Little Caesars to clarify what modifications can be made. Ingredients and ways that the food is prepared may vary by location.

Top Pick: Create Your Own Pizza

Order vegan at Little Caesars by designing a Create Your Own Pizza on the vegan-friendly round or thin crust. Top your pizza with as many vegan toppings as you'd like: mushrooms, onions, green peppers, black olives, pineapple, jalapeño peppers, and Planteroni, if it's available at your location. Order your pie with no cheese, and you're all set.

For further customization, you can split your toppings on the right and left side, bake your pie normally or well done, decide how much sauce you want, or whether or not you’d like your pizza pre-cut.

Vegan Large Round Pizzas

The standard Large Round Pizzas at Little Caesars don't offer a vegan 'za on the menu, but you could order a veggie pizza on the round or thin crust without cheese as a quick vegan order.

Want to customize your pie and perhaps add some Planteroni? Order that Create Your Own Pizza without cheese and enjoy.

Treehugger Tip

We regret to report that Little Caesars Deep!Deep! Dish Pizza crust is not vegan. Steer clear of this section of the menu and order a pizza with a round or thin crust instead.

Vegan Sides

We reached out to Little Caesars but were unable to confirm that their Crazy Bread can indeed be ordered vegan because it is often served with parmesan cheese. Check with your location to see what's possible.

The only available vegan sauce is Little Caesars' classic Crazy Sauce, a tomato-based dipping sauce with a special blend of tasty herbs and spices.

Vegan Drinks

Little Caesar's offers a small selection of 2 liter and 20 oz. bottles of Pepsi soft drinks, all of which are vegan-friendly.
