The UK’s first vegan pizzeria, Purezza, is set to open its second location – in London’s Camden in February next year.
The original branch of the Italian eatery is based in Brighton, and opened in 2015.
The Camden Town outlet will be spread over two floors and seat 100? ?diners.
Purezza will feature an entirely vegan menu, with wholegrain sourdough pizzas, pastas, burgers, raw dishes, and gluten-free food.
According to the brand, it is ‘committed to inclusive eating’ and aims to serve quality food to all diners irrespective of their dietary choices.
A spokesperson added: “Purezza has reverse engineered a number of animal-based foods including vegan meat and cheese in its lab in order to recreate them with plant-based ingredients. It’ll offer a range of artisan cheeses, including its famous houseblend rice mozzarella as standard for pizzas.
“It’ll also offer ‘meats’ such as pancetta, mince, and burger patties created with plant proteins.”
