Tomorrow, Pizza Hut is launching a brand new vegan stuffed crust pizza!
The Vegan Stuffed Crust pizza is made with vegan Violife cheese in the crust.
The new item is available as an Individual Pizza for a £2.50 add on cost.
The chain ensures the fans and vegan consumers that “the right amount of Violife’s gooey dairy-free cheese is encased in the crust” making it “the perfect cheese alternative to the nations much loved treat.”
Pizza Hut invented the crust concept 25 years ago, but it is the first time the chain offers a vegan version of stuffed crust pizza.
The company says it sells an average of 1.6 million stuffed crust pizzas a year.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Ciara Grace, Senior Menu Innovation Manager at Pizza Hut Restaurants, said: “We’re always looking into new and exciting ways to develop our menu and cater to as many guests as possible.
“The Vegan Stuffed Crust was naturally the next step for us to grow our plant-based offering at Pizza Hut Restaurants. We’re really excited to launch the Vegan Stuffed Crust as we’re confident it’s going to be a hit on both taste and texture.”
Simon Orchard, UK & Ireland Country Manager, added: “The stuffed crust pizza has been a firm favourite for 25 years, and Violife are excited to be partnering with Pizza Hut to make a vegan version a reality.
“We can’t wait for customers to try the deliciously melty new stuffed crust, and help continue to show people that’s it’s never been easier to go dairy-free.”
Vegan options are available at every restaurant across the UK.
