California Sun

From the people who brought us the neighborhood classic Mohawk Bend comes California Sun, a bustling deli in the heart of Silver Lake offering Detroit-style deep dish pizzas and gigantic New York-style slices with three vegan options daily. The crispy Kale See-sar with breaded seitan “chicken” can be ordered as a pizza or a salad, while many of their daily “scoops and salads” are vegan, too.

This Valley gem offers 12-inch "selfie" pies (meant for one but could be shared--if you're feeling generous) and chewy "big dough" thick-crust pizzas, with tons of vegan topping options, from "vegan BBQ pollo" to a classic "veggies and cheese" to the "vegan hottie" and more.

This Silver Lake staple keeps it classic with vegan cheese, vegan pepperoni, a baked potato pizza, and their signature Angry Vegan (for lovers of the hot stuff!), using a combo of Kite Hill and Follow Your Heart cheeses to their fullest potentials. People come as much for the 70 taps of California craft beer as the amazing happy hour deals, while their Piece of the Pie special always benefits a local nonprofit.
