If you’re in the UK, and you’re a sucker for good vegan cheese and pulled jackfruit, then you’re in for a treat. Pizza Hut has announced that it’s launching a new vegan jackfruit pizza in all 253 of it’s UK locations. The item will launch as a tester, and if it succeeds, will remain as a staple on the menu.
This is an excerpt from Live Kindly:
To celebrate Veganuary – the month-long pledge to go vegan for January – Pizza Hut announced today the release of a vegan jackfruit pizza called the Jack ‘n’ Ch**se. The pizza features a tomato base and Violife’s award-winning dairy-free cheese. Sweetcorn, red onion, peppers, BBQ jackfruit, and a BBQ drizzle top the plant-based pizza, which is available on Pan, All American Thin, and Gluten Free bases. Diners can also choose from 15 animal-free toppings if they would like to customize their dish.
The pizza will be available throughout January, although it has the potential to become a permanent menu item if Pizza Hut sells 10,000 vegan pizzas during Veganuary 2019. Sales will be tracked on the “Vegan-O-Meter,” updated weekly, which can be viewed on Pizza Hut UK’s Twitter.
Kathryn Austin, Director of HR and Marketing at Pizza Hut, said in a statement, “Following the overwhelmingly positive feedback and awards we’ve won for our initial vegan range in 2017, we’ve responded to demand with a third vegan Pizza. We’re confident the Jack ‘n’ Ch**se Pizza will be just as warmly received!”
She continued, “We love innovating and giving our guests as much choice as possible and if this is as successful as we expect it to be, we’ll keep it on the menu for the foreseeable future.”
