Finally Pizza Express joins the club
I’m really not sure why this has taken so long, but it finally has arrived so you need to know.
After years of watching multiple other pizza chain restaurants introduce a vegan cheese option to their menu, Pizza Express is now offering vegan mozzarella.
It used to be that you could take your own vegan cheese into one of the almost 500 outlets in the UK and Ireland for the chefs to add to a customised pizza (I’m not joking), but now you can go into any one of their restaurants and order a vegan pizza without having to bring some of the ingredients yourself.
The following is from the official Pizza Express announcement online this week:
For some time now, our customers have been telling us that they want a vegan mozzarella alternative on the menu and in parallel, the world of vegan ingredients has opened up and become so interesting, enticing and tasty too. So, after a lot of tasting and testing, from June 20th we finally have an option that we believe you’ll love. One that we can say is sufficiently delicious to warrant it’s inclusion on our menu and sit atop our unique dough and delicious passata.
Made in Italy using Italian ingredients, our new vegan mozzarella alternative melts perfectly in our pizza oven and gives a creamy finish to any recipe. To celebrate, we have taken some of our favourite ingredients and created a new pizza recipe that combines flavoursome artichokes with our new asparagus, red onion, garlic oil, black olives and seasoning on a classic dough and passata base to create our new Vegan Giardiniera. Not only this, our vegan mozzarella alternative is available to be used across all of our pizzas, making this a great option for those looking for a dairy-free alternative.
How do you feel about this new option? Is it going to make your life any easier when it comes to dining out with friends, family or colleagues?
Yay for vegan pizza!
