Whilst Pickywops specialises in a variety of specialist bases such as burnt wheat and turmeric.  




 Vegan pizzas including the Maggie (vegan margarita pizza) ordered from Pickywops but everyone took a piece before I could take a picture. 


When vegan cheese is not on the menu a Marinara Pizza is normally on the menu of traditional Italian restaurants and it is a great option for vegans as it is a pizza with tomato sauce and basil.  My local Santa Maria also offers vegan cheese but their traditional Marinara pizza is my favourite.
