TUCSON, Ariz. -- A Tucson bakery's twist on a classic pie has earned it a 'Top 10' spot in the nation.

PETA has selected the top 10 vegan pies from restaurants and bakeries across the country. Tucson's Green Heart Bakery's Tofu Pumpkin Pie is among the picks.

"Green Heart Bakery's Tofu Pumpkin Pie is a delicious and animal-friendly take on a Thanksgiving classic," says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. "All the decadent pies on PETA's list show how easy it is to give everyone — including chickens and cows — something to be thankful for."

According to a news release from PETA, the Tofu Pumpkin Pie comes with a choice of crusts and an organic pumpkin filling sweetened with maple syrup, molasses and traditional spices.
