Rudy's Pizzeria: 1230 N State Street

Whether dining in or taking out, you can't go wrong with Rudy's. They have a huge variety of pizzas you can choose from, and they are very very vegan-friendly, even offering vegan cheese if you so desire. When dining in, their wine choices are decent and quite economical, and it is easily affordable to buy a bottle of red to share which will go nicely with your pizza. The decor at Rudy's is cheery and happy, and I really enjoy the colorful mosaics.

A couple of weeks ago I had dinner there and enjoyed an olive onion and spinach pizza, one of my favorite combos. I think my favorite thing about Rudy's pizza is the sauce, which is so good that if you aren't a fan of vegan cheese, you can go for straight veggies and no cheese and be satisfied. Good pizza sauce means a lot, especially on a cheese-less pizza, and Rudy's has it down.

Last Tuesday evening we watched the election returns with some friends and enjoyed some delicious pizzas from Rudy's at home. That night I chose the "Mama Rudy's," which has a variety of veggie toppings, including fresh tomatoes. Maybe it was my overwhelming happiness that night, but I do believe that was the best Mama Rudy's I have ever eaten, or maybe ever will eat.

As with vegan sushi, I obviously also have a love of good vegan pizza. And luckily, we have no shortage of awesome options in Bellingham. So now in addition to Mambo's and La Fiamma, you can add Rudy's to the list and see for yourself how hard it is to pick which one is your favorite. I guess I will just have to keep eating at all three places in order to see if I can ever decide. I think I am ok with that.

The owner of Rudy's Pizza comes into the Co-op all the time and I mentioned Daiya to him on 2/12. He got some within a week, yesterday he told me he had it & was ready to go. So we're going to Rudy's to get a Daiya pizza this weekend. How cool is that?
