Tufino Pizzeria might not be the only restaurant in Queens with vegan pizza, but it is our favorite. The family-owned Italian restaurant serves Neapolitan pies from a wood-fired oven that was hand-built in Naples using volcanic lava ash from Mt. Vesuvius. All pies are baked in that very impressive-sounding oven using house-made dough sourced from imported flour and leavened over three days. The menu isn’t strictly plant-based, but any pizza can be made vegan or gluten-free for an additional $3. In those cases, the cheese used is house-made, which is pretty awesome. Our favorite? The quattro formaggi (fior di latte, ricotta, gorgonzola, and grana padano) and the spicy burrata, which features dried chile, cherry tomatoes, garlic, burrata, and prosciutto (or, I guess, a version of it?). The four-item vegan menu is also interesting with both eggplant and meatball parmigiana.
