Pizza isn't a business at 20th Street Pizza. It's art. It's a way of life. We're honored to have them in our pizza family and their amazing pizza at Pizzadelphia Fest on June 15 at the Navy Yard. Get your tickets before they're gone.

Pizza, comprised at its most fundamental form, constitutes mostly of fruits and vegetables - a wheat dough for the crust, olive oil, some spices such as cilantro or basil and almost universally a tomato sauce. But with these core elements and a few other vegan ingredients, 20th street pizza turns the ordinary into the exceptional. Owner Mark Mebus designed the brand-spanking-new pizzeria to be focused solely on quality vegan pies, taking ingredients only from locally sourced dealers.

Our Plain pizza just got a little fancy! Check out this beautiful purple, lemon, and cinnamon basil varieties we got through @lancasterfarmfresh ! The flavor is as intense as the appearance is beautiful. #veganpizza #whatveganseat #basil #pizza

20th Street’s menu is kept simple with a handful of incredible items to ensure maximum freshness and care. Being a seasonally sourced vegan restaurant, pies are prone to change over time, but that means there’s something new to try every time you come back. The pizza dough is a constant -  using naturally leavened bread, the square pizza will be a signature foundation for a colorful changing palette of pizza throughout the year.

It's a great day for a mushroom slice! Roasted maitake, beech, and yellow oyster mushrooms with vinegarized red onions and garlic cashew cream! #veganpizza #mushroom
