A common misconception about vegans is that they choose to forgo meat because they don’t like the flavor or texture of it. While this may be true for some, many (or most!) vegans actually don’t mind the taste of meat, but choose to stay away from it for ethical or environmental reasons.
With that being said, many people who go plantbased miss and crave the taste of meat. Furthermore, many plantbased eaters also miss and crave the taste of dairy and cheese, but avoid it for the same reasons that they do meat. If this sounds like you, then you’re in luck. No need to miss out any longer! In today’s modern world where being plantbased is widely accepted and normalized, there are tons of delicious, fully plantbased meats and cheeses on the market that taste just like the real things – sans the animal-derived ingredients.
One of the most popular foods world-wide that’s known to contain both meat and dairy is – you guessed it – pizza. Is it possible to find plantbased versions of a food, like pizza, that is commonly associated with meat and dairy? Can you eat at fast food pizza joints, such as Pizza Hut if you’re vegan? Are there better options for plantbased pizza out there? We’re here to answer all of these important questions for you. At The Pizza Plant, our sole mission is to bring you delicious, 100% plantbased options for the best food out there: pizza!
Pizza Hut and Plantbased Meat
In 2020, Pizza Hut launched a test-run collaboration with Beyond Meat, and served Beyond Italian Sausage for a limited time at select locations. Unfortunately, Pizza Hut is no longer serving Beyond Meat at any of their locations, but hopefully will again soon.
In the meanwhile, you can still eat vegan at Pizza Hut. One way to do this is to order their signature, “Veggie Lover’s” pizza without cheese. This will leave you with a pizza made up of crust, marinara sauce, and an array of vegetables. The other way that you can get your hands on a plantbased pizza at Pizza Hut, is by opting for their “Create Your Own” pizza. Choosing this option allows you to pick your style of crust, type and amount of sauce, and veggie toppings. Of course, just be sure to stay away from crusts, sauces, and toppings that contain dairy or meat. Pro tip: Pizza Hut’s “Buttery Blend Crust” is actually vegan- so you can choose this flavor option for your crust! Click here for a list of options at Pizza Hut that are vegan-friendly.
