chain Pizza Hut has launched a trial of vegan cheese at two locations in Australia.


The cheese is
produced by popular Australian dairy-alternative manufacturers Dairy-Free
Down Under
– and can be added to a meat free pizza for a fully plant-based meal.

 Pizza Hut noted on the chain’s Facebook page
that a number of vegan sauce and crust options are available to those on a
plant-based diet.


The vegan
cheese is advertised as being available for a limited time only, and it’s noted
that a 10% surcharge will be applied to the product on holidays.

At this
time, consumers can only order the dairy-free pizzas at the Waterloo and
Marsden Park locations in New South Wales.

Pizza Hut noted under the post that there are no immediate plans for national availability, but asked at least one commenter where else they’d like it see it offered.


By offering
vegan cheese, Pizza Hut Australia has joined chains such as Goodfellas, Domino’s, Bella Italia,
and Pizza Pizza in jumping on the plant-based pizza bandwagon.

commenter emphasized a need for more permanent vegan pizza options in Australia.

She wrote: “Please
make it permanent across all stores.

is getting all our business at the moment.”
