People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) named the red beans and rice pie at Mid City Pizza (4400 Banks St., 504-483-8609; www.midcitypizza.com) one of the nation's top vegan pizzas. PETA also noted that vegan cheese is available for any of the restaurant's pies. The red beans and rice pie is only available on Mondays.
PETA named 10 pies on its list (www.peta.org/living/food/best-vegan-pizza), including vegan macaroni and cheese pizza from Dimo's Pizza in Chicago and a savory sweet potato pizza from Silly's in Portland, Maine.
Mid City Pizza is not a vegan restaurant, and carnivores can get a Mid-City Meat Monster pie loaded with pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, bacon and ham.
