Just because LA is without its own football team doesn’t mean we have to forfeit Super Bowl snacks. So what’s a health-conscious nacho lover to do? These two LA eateries offer organic, vegetarian and vegan versions of your favorite football treats. Touchdown!

1. Pizza at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza (El Segundo)
780 S. Sepulveda Blvd.
310.335.9999

Not only can you order organic and locally sourced toppings at this affordable pizzeria, but for a little extra you can request a gluten-free crust and vegan mozzarella cheese. Order a pie for pickup and enjoy a guilt-free slice while screaming at the TV.

2. Tacos at Hugo’s Tacos (Atwater Village & Studio City)
3300 Glendale Blvd. (Atwater Village) & 4749 Colwater Canyon (Studio City)
323.664.9400/818.762.7771

Hugo’s Tacos (an offshoot of just-plain-Hugo’s) is a flexitarian’s delight, featuring tacos for meat-eaters, vegans and everyone in between, as well as gluten-free options. The only catch at this LA staple? There’s usually a long line. (Kind of like the snack line at the stadium, right?)
