Pizza giant Domino’s has revealed it will be rolling out a vegan ‘chicken’ pizza in January next year.
The first month of the year – which hosts plant-based initiative Veganuary – has become the traditional month for major animal-free foods launches.
Domino’s is one of the first big brands to announce its new offering – one of two new plant-based dishes. The other will be vegan nuggets.
The new dishes will join Domino’s current vegan offering: the Vegan Margherita pizza, the Vegan Vegi Supreme pizza, the Vegan Garlic & Herb dip, and Potato Wedges
The new Chick-Ain’t pizza will feature tomato sauce, dairy-free cheese, plant-based strips, onions, and green and red peppers. The pizza is available in a medium classic crust or large Italian style base.
The Vegan Nuggets are meat alternative bites coated in southern-fried breadcrumbs.
In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Domino’s Melanie Howe said: “Our food innovation team haven’t stopped experimenting in the test kitchen since we launched our Vegan Friendly range a few months ago and we just know our customers are going to adore the Chick-Ain’t pizza and Vegan Nuggets.
“Feedback on the existing range has been overwhelmingly good and it’s brilliant to offer even more choice to customers. These delicious additions land in stores just in time for the start of Veganuary, pizza and plants truly are a match made in heaven.”
The new options will be available from January 4 to order online, through the Domino’s app or via your nearest store across [the UK / Republic of Ireland]. For more information and to find your nearest store visit: www.dominos.co.uk
