Via Napoli adds vegan cheese

Wow, it’s been a minute since we’ve been to Via Napoli in Epcot. Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria in located in the Italy Pavilion and features, you guessed it, pizza! We went here many years ago and were pretty unimpressed with our cheeseless vegan pizza.

But it’s 2019 and Via Napoli has finally gotten with the times and added vegan cheese!

This option is supposed to be for individual pizzas only (why I have no idea), but we were able to get it on a large pizza by our server being unaware when ordering. The option is a Vegan Margarita Pizza.

We ended up ordering the Margarita with mushrooms (for an additional cost). We asked what kind of cheese it was and it is Daiya Cutting Board Shreds (the same as Blaze Pizza in Disney Springs).

The pizza itself was good. You could taste that it was cooked in a wood fire oven which is a key feature here. Otherwise it just tasted like standard pizza.

As a whole we’re excited they finally have vegan cheese. Will we go out of our way to go here again? Probably not. This is a restaurant loved by many, and if you’re a solo vegan in a group of meat eaters and you end up here at least you now have a legit option. But as vegans alone we would rather spend a fraction of the price at Blaze Pizza.

Back in 2014 I created Vegan Disney World after going to Walt Disney World several times and finding no resource for vegan options. Corey and I began this blog from our trips and have now moved closer to the mouse to eat around the parks on a weekly basis. Since the blog started we have cruised on Disney Cruise Line, gone to Tokyo Disneyland and to Disneyland in California!

One thought

  1. I love Blaze and have always thought Via Napoli was grossly overpriced. Thanks for the info, but like you, I won’t be going there any time soon, as long as Blaze is alive and well.
