A popular London pizzeria, PickyWops, has joined the likes of London cafe, The Fields Beneath, who also recently ditched dairy, as well as Manchester ice-cream shop, Ice Shack, who recently cut dairy from the menu in order to offer up a fully vegan menu instead, and has gone vegan.
When the owner of PickyWops Pizzeria, Cristiano decided to go vegan in January, his eyes were opened to the realities of the meat and dairy industries, which led him to introduce a whole host of new vegan items to their menu. Now, just three months later, the London pizzeria has ditched the dairy for good and has gone vegan.
Speaking to Rise of the Vegan, Vitelli explained why the popular pizza restaurant had decided to ditch dairy from the menu and go vegan:
“We just can’t stand by and watch, we want to be part of the change. We can’t keep doing what we believe is wrong, and we want our restaurant to be part of the change too, because we truly believe that everyone needs to change. We are very happy now we are no longer selling meat and dairy. Just because we’ve always done something doesn’t make it right. We believe that nothing can justify violence and we want to give our contribution and prove that there is an alternative way based on compassion, sustainability and in our case TASTIER!!!”
