A full-service location of vegan pizzeria Plant Based Pizzeria opened Sunday, January 10, in Sandy Springs. The grand opening takes place Saturday, January 16, from 3 p.m. to 1 a.m. Until then, the restaurant plans to open for takeout only, with the option to order online or from a self-service kiosk. Table service should begin Saturday, according to a Facebook post.
Located in the Huntridge Shopping Center on Roswell Road, owners Paul Jordan and Marisa Acoff hope to eventually expand the menu at the Sandy Springs restaurant to include pastas, like baked spaghetti or spinach mushroom alfredo, soft serve vegan ice cream and desserts, and a full bar.
In addition to its regular pizza menu, Plant Based Pizzeria features the option to build custom pizzas or order half-and-half toppings on pies. All pizzas come served on a spelt flour crust or gluten free cauliflower crust upon request. Calzones, flatbreads, and vegan burgers and sandwiches are also available on the menu.
The pizzeria uses Beyond Meat products and doesn’t incorporate white sugar, white flour, or soy in anything made in-house — a personal dietary choice for Jordan, who became a vegan six years ago following his mother’s cancer diagnosis.
Plant Based Pizzeria first opened two years ago in Virginia-Highland inside the former Rocco’s Pizza space along Barnett Street. Last year, Jordan and Acoff launched a food truck, which can often be found parked at locations around Atlanta’s west side neighborhoods.
Eater reached out for more details and to inquire about the restaurant’s COVID-19 safety precautions.
