For many years, finding vegan and vegetarian food in Paris was notoriously hard. Luckily for me, and a multitude of other non-meat eaters, this is no longer the case. Instead, the New Paris food revolution has brought with it a whole load of vegan and vegetarian eateries, cafés, and bars. In Le Marais district alone, you’ll find a whole load of these establishments. More recently, from the people that brought us the delectable Hank Vegan Burger, comes Hank Pizza…

Hank Vegan Pizza Review: Vegan Food in the Heart of Le Marais
Wander in at any given moment and you’ll be greeted by the scent of freshly baked pizza and friendly staff. Before you, you’ll find a counter stuffed full of vegan goodies and sweet treats. As the name suggests, Pizza is top of the menu, closely followed by salads, potato wedges and a whole range of organic drinks (the sweet cola is easily one of the best fizzy drinks I’ve ever tried). Further along the counter, you’ll find freshly baked vegan cakes. (And I totally recommend the brownies!)
Pizza is sold by the slice, meaning that if you opt for one of the ‘meal deals’ you can sample a few different flavours. And when it comes to selecting a pizza topping, you’re spoiled for choice as there are a fair few on offer. Personally, I could easily have eaten ‘Le Dandy’ (Truffle creamy sauce, potatoes, Mushrooms, spinach shoots, Roasted hazelnuts) all day, while ‘Le Coustad’ (Tomato sauce, cheesy vegan cream, roasted zucchini and eggplant, artichoke, oregano) definitely deserves a mention! For an extra €1, you’ll also get a gluten-free base.
Another concept which fans of nearby Hank Burger will recognise is the addition of ‘Le Touriste’ to the menu. This specialty pizza changes often, meaning that there’ll always be something new on the menu each time you visit Hank.
Hank Pizza Restaurant Interior
While it is possible to order food to take away, the restaurant ambiance is light and bright, making it the perfect place for meeting up with friends or stopping for refreshments in between sight-seeing. The restaurant is set over two floors and so there is always room to sit and relax, even during the busiest of lunch hours. Well located in the heart of Le Marais, nearby you’ll find Paris must-sees such as Musée des Arts et Metiers, the Centre Pompidou, and Musée Carnavalet.
