Vegan-friendly pizzeria

Classic Slice is a pizzeria in Bay View that stays open late (noon-midnight!), has weekly slice specials and features "monster sized slices".

The ceilings are really high and employees hand toss the dough high in the air and the kitchen is open so you can see them back there doing this. The space and the music are high-energy, and toppings run the gamut from pesto and broccoli to vegan sausage.

Classic Slice features three vegan pizzas: Mediterranean (olive tapinade, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, mushroom, & vegan sausage), The Anne Curry (curry sauce, broccoli, spinach, mushroom, tofu, and tomatoes), and the Super Veggie (red sauce, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, fresh basil, and tofu OR vegan sausage). You can also get a "Vegan Victory Mini Pie" which is a mini version of any of the above pizzas.

16" pizzas are $16 and 20" pizzas are $20. The mini pies are $9.

ONLY the pizzas in the vegan section are vegan because they use a different crust so you need to buy an entire pizza or mini pie. The individual slices are made on a crust that already has cheese on it, so swapping out toppings won't make it vegan.

NOTE: This place is sort of hidden behind a gym. If you don't see it right on Kinnickinnic, go right around the gym on the corner.

We went there on "Vegan Night", aka Thursday, and thus got a free order of soy sticks with our pizza. The soy sticks were pretty good. The pizza we got was the Anne Curry which was a little bland. Ended up wishing we had gotten something else such as the Vegan Pesto Pie which is supposed to be pretty good.

I've been going here maybe once or twice a year for the last few years and I gotta say that I'm not super impressed. The menu is hugely confusing and I've had numerous cashiers on separate visits have difficulty explaining how certain items are priced and what they include (annoying).

The first time I had the Mediterranean pizza, it was good but weird having basil and sun-dried tomatoes paired with Tofurkey sausage. I had it again last week and it had some other kind of vegan sausage, which was better. The Anne Curry is good, but a bit mild. We even got extra curry sauce on it but I feel it could have used more flavor. The mixed veggie pizza is also good, but better with soy cheese ($1 to add to a 9-inch personal pie). The bread sticks are also vegan and quite yummy. You also get a huge order for $4.50, so it's a good way to fill in the meal.

I was pretty disappointed with a visit last year when a the "vegan" cashier tried to push a non-vegan pizza on me. I ordered a spinach/feta cheese slice and asked that the feta be replaced w/ vegan (Follow Your Heart) cheese. The self-proclaimed vegan cashier said this was fine and assured me it would be vegan. After paying and sitting down, she came out and told me the slice actually wouldn't be vegan because all the individual slices have cheese on the crust, which the cooks then top and bake (good to know!) She asked if it would be okay because there wasn't that much cheese. I told her that I'm vegan so I don't want any dairy cheese. She then offered to scrape off the cheese and then add the soy cheese. At this point, I had to say "Wait, didn't you say you're vegan?" I told her I'd switch to the 9-inch personal vegan pizza (vegan crust) w/ the spinach and soy cheese. She said fine and charged me the $4.50 difference. Lame.

Apparently ONLY the personal pies are vegan, NOT the slices.
