One Planet Pizza has partnered Heather Mills‘ company VBites to create what it describes as its ‘melty, stringy, fully pull-worthy vegan Cheezly pizzas’. The change was prompted by the company – founded by father and son team, Mike and Joe Hill – wanting to create a pizza with cheese that imitated the taste and texture of traditional dairy mozzarella.
The revamped range features One Planet Pizza’s flaxseed enriched dough, homemade tomato sauce, and hand-selected toppings, along with the Cheezly.
“We are super excited to start working closely with VBites to help bring delicious plant-based pizzas into the mainstream,” Joe Hill, Co-owner of One Planet Pizza, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.
“Here at OPP, we’re always raising the bar (and dough) when it comes to vegan pizza! That’s why we’ve been working closely with Vbites to develop this amazingly delicious new cheezly that now melts, stretches and pulls like never before!”
“We are happy to be collaborating with the passionate team at One Planet Pizza and excited to announce they are using the new VBites melting cheezly,” Jasper Wilkins, Head Of Marketing for VBites, added.
“The new range of Cheezly pizzas will be making their way into One Planet Pizza’s 450 international stockists (as well as being available from Ocado) over the next few weeks.”

The range – which carries four varieties of pizzas – was recently launched in online supermarket Ocado, alongside the 450 independent health food shops around the UK it retailed in.
“We had to expand our production very quickly in order to meet the increasing demand for our pizzas, including the launch on Ocado, and it’s great that our fans/customers will now be able to order online across the UK,” the Hills said. “Our pizzas continue to win awards for their taste and flavor, and Ocado, with its focus on healthy and ethical foods, is a perfect fit for us.
“We’re excited to welcome One Planet Pizza to our frozen range,” added Ocado Buying Manager Penina Kahtan.
“From its award-winning great taste to the compostable pizza box, this new launch will resonate with many of our customers, offering high-quality plant-based cuisine in a convenient format.”
