    Abbot's Pizza in Venice has a veggie pizza that you can order with or without cheese. My sis is a vegan, and she truly enjoyed it without cheese, but she is vegan so what she and I consider great are not often the same... I do like this pizza with cheese...

    Abbot's also has a salad pizza - literally a nice green salad presented on a slice of pizza - I do truly enjoy that one as well, especially when the Hass avo's are running really rich and buttery - Abbot's is fairly generous with chunks of these avo's...

      CPK does a whole grain crust and will do extra thin and crispy if you like.

      These both do "laden"

        since the cpk wheat crust is horrible, the thinner the better.

        Vito's is the BEST! No whole grain crust though.

          Not sure if you're looking for a vegetarian pizza (no cheese) or a vegetable pizza, but I'd suggest Zelo's in Arcadia (http://www.zelo.us/) - it's a unique, deep-dishish pizza with a corn crust, and is oddly addictive.

            I love Vito's -- don't get me wrong, it's the best pizza in LA -- but I don't like his vegetarian pizza. The veggie pizza at Albano's is the best -- with the fried eggplant, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Just don't let it get cold.

              Follow Your Heart in Sherman Oaks has great pizza, with as many veggies on it as you'd like. And whole grain crust. It's awesome! (And you can get non-dairy cheese, if you like.)

                  Bloom Cafe on Pico makes many organic whole wheat crust pizzas...they're all great. i usually get the vegetarian plus avocado, pine nuts and veggie link sausage. yum.
