While I LOVE that Pizza Luce finally opened up in Saint Paul, I must say the vegan pizza is very hit or miss and more miss than hit -- at least for take out.
The spicy mock duck can range to be almost as good as Downtown's mock duck (never quite as flavorful or spicy) to horribly dried out and crispy/burned. The crust has also been an issue for me, over half the time it's undercooked so it is wafer-thin, kind of soggy and not very tasty. Once in a while, I'll get a fully cooked crust which is awesome and so so good.
The rinotta is pretty spot-on, my only complaint is the same with Downtown's Luce: the application of rinotta can range from thick and awesome to sparse and uneven.
I tried the vegan cheese bread in-restaurant once at this location, and it was fine -- gooey and melted and tasty which is all you could ask for in vegan cheese bread.
I just get the feeling that this location doesn't have enough vegan orders or vegan employees to understand the art of the vegan pizza. More than once I've encountered a completely confused response when trying to order a pizza "vegan", something I don't do except at places like Luce where the word should be understood.
Despite the lackluster food I've gotten, I go back again and again and again. Why? Because it's so freaking close to my house and even the crappiest Pizza Luce is 20-bazillion times better than any other cheeseless pizza I can get without going to Minneapolis.
Overall, I go here when I'm lazy but for what I believe is the best Luce -- Downtown Mpls still wins over all the other locations.
