Award-winning vegan pizzeria Purezza is donating 100% of the profits from its latest pizza to raise funds to build homes for rescue pigs.
Purezza, the UK’s first vegan pizzeria, which has restaurants in Brighton and London, has launched its new summer menu with a very special new addition in the form of a limited edition special pizza called The Laughing Pig which is topped with cheese-style sauce, asparagus tips, yellow plum tomatoes, and salami made with jackfruit.
The pizzeria will be donating 100% of the profits from The Laughing Pig pizza to Friend Farm Animal Sanctuary, a Kent-based animal sanctuary dedicated to providing care and refuge for rescue animals who were born into the factory farm system and would otherwise have been slaughtered.
Funds raised from sales of the pizza will go towards creating new pig arks made out of recycled materials to provide shelter for the pigs at the sanctuary.
Better world for animals
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, co-owner and co-founder of Purezza, Tim Barclay, said “Anyone who cares about creating happier lives and a better world for animals will be inspired by the incredible work that Friend Farm Animal Sanctuary does.
“I’ve always loved the work that they do for rescue animals, and when it came to choosing who to support with our latest charity pizza there was a unanimous agreement from everyone at Purezza that it should be FFAS. We’re truly honoured to be able to donate to them through the launch of our latest pizza”.
The popular plant-based pizzeria has been making waves in the pizza world as it recently scooped the top prize at the National Pizza Awards after becoming the first vegan pizzeria to be nominated for the award. The vegan pizzeria also took home the top prize at another prestigious competition – the World Pizza Championships.
