Restaurant chain Pizza Hut has teamed up with Beyond Meat to create two vegan toppings for its pizzas in the UK and US. The fast-food giant will launch two special pizzas with the plant-based meat topping: the Beyond Italian Sausage Pizza and the Great Beyond Pizza.
The Beyond Pan Pizzas feature the Beyond Italian Sausage crumbles on top of Pizza Hut’s classic cheese pizza. The Great Beyond Pizza is speciality pizza with veggie toppings including tomatoes, sliced red onions, and banana peppers.
The customers can also add the vegan toppings to any of its pizzas.
David Graves, the chief brand officer of Pizza Hut, said in a statement: “I’d challenge anyone to try the Beyond Pan Pizza and tell the difference. I shared it with friends and family, and they couldn’t.
“The Beyond Italian sausage is rich, juicy and has the signature Pizza Hut flavours. Pizza lovers everywhere are going to love it.”
The new toppings will be available from today on for a limited time in selected Pizza Hut restaurants in London, Luton and Liverpool. The pizzas will be available only through delivery and takeaway.
Commenting on the new collaboration, Beyond Meat founder and CEO Ethan Brown said: ”Our partnership with Pizza Hut is a category first.
“Together, we will continue to raise the bar on game-changing product innovations as we introduce the delicious taste of Beyond Meat products to pizza fans nationwide.
“We’re thrilled to be on this journey with Pizza Hut. It enables us to further increase access to better-for-you plant-based meat as we continue to expand our partnership with Yum! Brands.”
