Global pizza chain Domino’s is to launch vegan cheese and pizza bases early next year in the UK and three other countries – animal-rights organization PETA has confirmed.
The fast-food outlet will join a plethora of pizza chains that have added plant-based options to their menus, such as Papa John’s, Pizza Hut, PizzaExpress, and Zizzi.
Announcing the news of the launch, PETA said: “By adding vegan choices to its menu, Domino’s will help meet the booming demand for vegan food and make it that much easier to live an animal-friendly life.
“Consumers who choose to ditch dairy spare cows immense suffering on factory farms and help combat the devastating environmental impact of animal agriculture.”

Rachel Townsend a spokesperson from Domino’s told Plant Based News: “The rumors are true. We have been working hard to perfect a vegan recipe with the unmistakable taste of Domino’s fresh dough and cheesy goodness”
“We’re not quite there yet, but vegan pizza lovers shouldn’t have to wait much longer.”
