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.”
