PETA has named the red beans and rice pie at Mid City Pizza (4400 Banks St., 504-483-8609) one of its top vegan pizzas in the country. PETA also celebrates the fact 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, 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.
