In celebration of World Vegan Day on November 1st, Pizza Express is going to be offering more plant-based meals. The chain restaurant launched their Vegan Giardiniera pizza last year, and is now expanding their range of vegan options.
Listed on the new menu is the Vegan Puttanesca Pizza, topped with jackfruit, olives, capers, garlic, herbs and tomatoes. The Peperonata pasta will also be suitable for vegans, with a tomato and pepper sauce, with garlic, herbs and fresh rocket. For dessert, a vegan carrot cake will be added to the menu.
Timothy Love, senior marketing manager at Pizza Express, said: “Considering that almost a third of all evening meals eaten in the UK are now vegetarian or vegan, and over a fifth (22 per cent) of the population is actively choosing gluten-free foods, it’s no surprise to see this consumer behaviour driving restaurant and delivery meal choices.
“We’ve led the restaurant market, developing a full range of vegan and vegetarian offerings with over 20 toppings to choose from, plus we were early to introduce gluten-free dishes. This innovation is set to continue, and we’re delighted to see such positive response to our menu.”
