Pizza Pizza is now vegan and gluten-free
You can always get vegan-friendly pies at Pizza Pizza, only you had to order them without cheese.
But today, the Toronto-based chain announced it'd be offering vegan cheese at each and every one of its orange-clad pizzerias.
According to a Pizza Pizza news release, the company's welcoming a "new dairy-free menu option that allows Canada's growing vegan community to customize their pizzas with a cheese-like product that respects the vegan diet.
not to be dramatic but pizza pizza offering vegan cheese is the best thing that's ever happened to meâ Maddie (@MaddieTurenne) February 27, 2017
Violife, owned in part by former NBA-er John Salley, will supply Pizza Pizza with its cheese-like product. Apparently, Salley and Pizza Pizza's chief marketing officer, Pat Finelli, met and started working on this project during last year's NBA All-Star Weekend.
Adding vegan options to the menu is a long-awaited offering that follows in the chain's much earlier roll-out of gluten-free crusts.
Now, those who eschew meat and gluten in Toronto have one more place to grab a slice. Plenty of local restaurants, including Magic Oven, Apiecalypse Now! and Za Pizzeria, all have vegan pizza options too.
