Vegan cheese-stuffed crusts available at Pizza Huts across the UK
Pizza chain’s commitment to going carbon neutral by 2030 means more vegan cheese
Starting this week Pizza Hut has unveiled its new Vegan Cheese crust options at all its UK locations. Vegan Crust pizzas stuffed with Violife vegan cheese are now available for all of the chain’s vegan pizzas for an additional £2.50.
Pizza Hut has been offering stuffed crust pizzas for twenty-five years now. The addition of Violife’s dairy-free cheese in the crust now turns this pizza treat into a plant-based alternative for vegan pizza lovers.
“We’re always looking into new and exciting ways to develop our menu and cater to as many guests as possible,” said Ciara Grace, Senior Menu Innovation Manager at Pizza Hut Restaurants.
“The vegan stuffed crust was naturally the next step for us to grow our plant-based offering at Pizza Hut Restaurants. We’re really excited to launch the vegan stuffed crust as we’re confident it’s going to be a hit on both taste and texture,” she said.
The new offering is part of the clear trend showing how much easier it now is for people to go dairy-free.
Pizza Hut’s commitment to vegan cheese is part of its carbon neutral by 2030 strategy
Pizza Hut is enjoying success with its vegan offerings. In January during the Veganuary campaign, the chain launched its vegan pepperoni pizza. It was introduced as a limited time offer for Veganuary, but after selling nearly 40,000 vegan pizzas in the first month of the new year, the vegan pepperoni pizza is now a permanent addition to the company menu.
Pizza Hut now has a dedicated vegan menu with several plant-based options. The offerings include various pizzas such as Vegan Margherita, Vegan Veggie, Vegan Hot ‘N’ Spicy Veg and the Vegan BBQ Jack ‘N’ Ch**se, Quorn-based fried nuggets starters as well as a vegan cheesecake for dessert.
The vegan options are available at every Pizza Hut outlet in England, Scotland and Wales.
Pizza Hut has announced its ambition to become carbon neutral by 2030. Whilst it certainly has no plans to withdraw real cheese from its menu, there is no doubting its desire to use more vegan cheese so as to assist it in chasing down its ambition carbon output target.
