Patxi’s Chicago Pizza Palo Alto Review

Patxi's Chicago Pizza Palo Alto Review

Yeah, I’m having a bit of a pizza binge over here in Chow Vegan land. You would think I had my fill of pizza after reviewing three Tofurky Pizzas in my last post. But hey, it’s pizza! And man, I haven’t had deep dish pizza in years, decades even.

Needless to say, I was very excited to try the vegan deep dish at Patxi’s Chicago Pizza in Palo Alto. I got the small 10″ Stuffed Vegan – spinach, crushed garlic, red onions, and Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese on a whole wheat crust.

After waiting 30 minutes for the deep dish to cook, it didn’t disappoint. The crust is nice and crusty, you can’t even tell it’s whole wheat. The Daiya cheese is nice and melty. Creamy too.

One slice and I was pretty much full. I haven’t had this much cheese in ages, it seemed really rich. Maybe because I’m used to eating lighter, cheeseless pizza. Next time I would leave out the onions and add other veggies instead.

Patxi’s also offers thin and extra-thin crust pizza which I would like to try sometime. All of their sauce and dough is vegan and made fresh daily.

Located in downtown Palo Alto, I’ve been racking my brain trying to think what was there before the pizza place (I use to live right around the corner). The decor is nice, the servers super friendly and the vegan pizza is clearly noted on the menu. A great addition to the list of places to eat vegan in Palo Alto.

    Um, seriously! This looks SO GOOD! I have been disappointed by the vegan pizza over hear. The most popular place in town is finally looking into bringing in Daiya and a gluten-free crust, but their prices are already crazy. I wonder how much these are going to be. Pooh. Ggreat review by the way! :)

    “Deep dish pizza” is almost like a curse word in my house hold, having been brought up on thin crust and all, but damn, is that tempting!

    drool drool. Cheese is always my downfall in my quest to full fledged vegan. Patxi’s needs another location….Portland area maybe?
