G’s Tasty Pizza recently added more vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free dishes to their menu. CEO, Gökmen Güler, who goes by “G,” says this is a crucial step to making the restaurant more inclusive for people with specialty diets. Aside from offering plenty of options for people with specialty diets, a multitude of menu items at G’s Pizza are also approved by Ochsner’s Eat Fit program.
“We want G’s Pizza to be a place where everyone feels welcome,” Güler says. “I want people with specialty diets to be able to just walk in and pick something that both looks tasty and fits their diet.”
Not only are there vegan options, but G’s Tasty Pizza has an entire vegan menu, complete with appetizers, salads, burgers, pizzas, and dessert specials. G said he and his employees worked hard to perfect the vegan menu and vegan options.
“A customer favorite from our vegan options is the Vegan Rainbow pizza,” Güler says. “It’s complete with vegan cheese, red onions, cherry tomatoes, and fresh avocado.”
Ochsner’s Eat Fit program collaborates with restaurants, grocery stores, and more to promote nutritious meals that are also delicious. Many items on G’s Pizza’s menu are supported by this program, including G’s Narcissist Pizza, consisting of marinara, mozzarella, artichoke, pineapple, roasted garlic, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, cilantro & chili pepper, as well as G’s Nola Greenroots Pizza, consisting of marinara, mozzarella cheese, white onions, roasted red pepper, garlic, artichoke, green peppers, olives, mushroom & spinach.
“We are so happy to partner with the Eat Fit program to support those with dietary restrictions and to encourage healthy eating in general,” Güler says. “Our chefs have been working hard to bring this idea to fruition.”
The appetizers on the vegan menu include fries, sprouts, Tahini hummus, and jalapeño cheesy bread. Many of these appetizers were adapted into being vegan-friendly dishes. G believes customers shouldn’t have to sacrifice flavor and taste for their diet.
“I want people with specialty diets to have the best of both worlds: vegan and delicious,” Güler says. “With a special offer on food and drinks daily, it’s easy to find something affordable and delicious here.”
G’s Tasty Pizza offers a one topping small pizza for only $8 on Mondays, any large gourmet pizza with a bottle of house wine for $29 on Tuesdays, half off gourmet pizzas on Wednesdays, and more.
