Popular Canadian chain restaurant Pizza Pizza has once again expanded its vegan menu – after adding vegan cheese to its offerings last year.
While the chain’s classic and wholegrain crust have been fully vegan for some time, the gluten-free crust, which previously contained gelatin, is newly vegan-friendly.
The vegan and vegetarian options are now listed separately on in-store menus.
The chain made certified-vegan Violife cheese available at over 750 locations nationwide last March – with the intent to cater to Canada’s ‘growing vegan community’.
Chief Marketing Officer Pat Finelli said: “We’re on a mission to provide quality options that meet the different flavour and dietary preferences of our customers.”
Vegan NBA champ John Salley added: “More and more consumers are moving towards a plant-based diet and eating less meat, so I applaud Pizza Pizza for providing consumers with options that are not only healthier, but also taste great.”
Pizza Pizza is just one mainstream pizzeria offering plant-based cheese. Last week Domino’s revealed it was running out of its vegan mozzarella topping due to high demand.
