by | February 25, 2020

Pizza Hut UK has announced the launch of a stuffed-crust option made with vegan cheese.

“We can’t wait for customers to try the deliciously melty new stuffed crust, and help continue to show people [that] it’s never been easier to go dairy-free,” said Simon Orchard, manager for Pizza Hut UK and Ireland. 

The new vegan cheese stuffed-crust will be available in Pizza Hut locations across the UK starting February 26, adding to the chain’s existing list of plant-based offerings.

According to Mirror, the new stuffed-crust will be made with dairy-free cheese from dairy alternative giant Violife. Adding a stuffed crust to an individual pizza will cost consumers an extra £2.50.

Growing Demand For Vegan Options

The new release is just one of many big-brand responses to increasing demand for plant-based products in the UK of late.

Pizza Hut was one of many chains to offer a special release for Veganuary, debuting the popular “Pepperphoni” pizza just last month, and has since decided to make its plant-based menu a year-round offering.

This month, UK grab-and-go chain Greggs launched vegan hot cross buns folllowing the massive success of its plant-based sausage rolls international headline earners, and a hot topic in mainstream media.
