VERDICT: Is Pizza Hut Vegan Cheese Any Good?


1 Minutes Read

Last month PBN reported that food giant Pizza Hut is trialling vegan cheese in five of its restaurants in England.

The chain has opted for Violife – which fans can find sprinkled on pizza in Canterbury, Chatham, Thanet, Bluewater, and Crawley.

The trial is set to end on November 26, if it’s a success, the chain could roll it out to more stores.

People have taken to social media to share their views. But the question is: is it worth a visit?


So far, much of the feedback has been positive – with people on social media describing the cheese as ‘melty’ and ‘lovely’.

One user claimed their Violife cheese pizza was ‘delicious’.

In addition, several vegan Facebook groups local to the trial areas have been encouraging members to try the cheese for themselves.

Will the positive feedback – plus the move to get people taking full advantage of the trial – mean Pizza Hut rolls out the trial nationwide?

PBN will update you when the news comes in!


Staff from animal rights charity PETA tried the pizza themselves, and described the trial as an ‘opportunity’.

A spokesman said: “With a vegan crust, delicious Violife cheese, and a ton of veggie toppings available, Pizza Hut has the opportunity to become a hot spot for people looking to reduce their contribution to animal suffering and environmental destruction as well as to improve their own health.”
