There's a new pizza place in East Sacramento, and they have vegan options! PizzaRev is a national chain that opened its Sacramento location on Folsom Boulevard last month. Not only do they offer vegan cheese, they have vegan sausage as well.

I stopped in for lunch recently and ordered a "craft your own" pizza. They have three different crust options, all of which are vegan -- signature thin, double dough, and gluten-free. I requested the signature thin, and then moved on to the sauce selection. Four of their five sauces are vegan -- organic tomato, spicy organic tomato, sweet & bold BBQ, and olive oil. I decided to play it safe and go with the organic tomato.

Next, I had them add Daiya vegan cheese, for an extra charge, and vegan sausage. Finally, I chose my vegetable toppings -- mushrooms, black olives, and pepperoncinis. There were lots of other vegan topping choices including red onions, cherry tomatoes, spinach, pineapple, and green bell pepper, to name a few.

It was a good pizza, and I thought the vegan sausage had a really good flavor. The next time I go, I want to try their double dough crust.

PizzaRev is located at 5801 Folsom Boulevard, Suite 110, and their phone number is 916-455-1198. Their website address is, and their Facebook page can be found at The restaurant is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Road Trip! True Food Kitchen in Walnut Creek

This past week, I had lunch with my parents at the new True Food Kitchen in Walnut Creek. This restaurant chain prides itself on its "anti-inflammatory diet" and it offers numerous vegan options, clearly marked on the menu.

I started out with this gorgeous glass of pomegranate chia limeade, which tasted as good as it looked.

For my entrée, I went back and forth, trying to decide between the ancient grains bowl with tofu and vegetables, and the TLT sandwich. I finally opted for the sandwich, consisting of smoked tempeh, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and vegan mayonnaise on whole grain bread. It was great! The sweet potato hash that came with it was very good too.

My mom ordered the butternut squash pizza. In addition to the squash, it was topped with smoked onion, kale, vegan almond ricotta, and dried cranberries. She really enjoyed it.

True Food Kitchen had several vegan desserts too. I loved my apple goji crisp, served with vegan vanilla ice cream, and Mom was happy with her squash pie topped with coconut whipped cream. I had a bite of it and it was delicious!

True Food Kitchen is a national restaurant chain, but unfortunately, the closest location to Sacramento is the restaurant in Walnut Creek. For more information about their locations, hours, and menus, visit the True Food Kitchen website at or their Facebook page at
