Pizza Hut Denies It Is Launching Vegan Cheese In The US

Fast-food giant Pizza Hut has denied it will roll out vegan cheese in all its US stores.

According to a report, Pizza Hut said: “We have been testing the marketing when it comes to vegan cheese for quite some time, and we’re just about ready to make the leap!

“We plan to have vegan cheese available at all of our U.S. locations by the end of summer, most likely in August.”

‘No plans’

But now Pizza Hut has issued a statement saying: “While we’re proud of our dedicated vegan menu in the U.K., the report is inaccurate and we have no plans at this time to carry vegan cheese at our U.S. locations.”

Although US fans will not be enjoying vegan cheese yet, the product has been introduced elsewhere.

Pizza Hut UK welcomed the addition of vegan cheese to its menu as a permanent fixture back in 2017, after witnessing a ‘phenomenal demand’ following the product’s initial trial.

More recently, the eatery also launched a vegan jackfruit pizza in all its UK restaurants, after sales exceed 10,000 during its trial in January – selling over nine thousand plant-based pizzas in the first two weeks.
