Zizzi was one of the first high-street restaurants to offer customers a vegan cheese pizza, and now they’re taking their vegan offerings to the next level with the addition of a very cheesy new vegan pizza offering!
In a first for UK high-street restaurant chains, Italian restaurant Zizzi is launching a brand new four cheese vegan pizza – the Quattro No-Maggio – to help vegans get their cheese fix this Veganuary.
The dairy-free pizza, which costs just £12.50, is topped with four types of vegan cheese and will also be available as part of Zizzi’s special two-for-one offer on all vegan mains throughout the month.
The Quattro No-Maggio is topped with four distinct and complimentary varieties of vegan ‘cheese’, Mozzarisella – original, smoked, cheddar and blue. Mozzarisella is a rice-based dairy-free cheese alternative which is indulgent, rich and creamy, and it even melts. Made from whole rice, using the finest organic ingredients, Mozzarisella is also rich in fibres and a range of amino acids.
The restaurant chain has paved the way with its comprehiensive vegan menu, encouraging similar restaurants such as Pizza Express and Bella Italia to up their game and offer vegan options to customers, and the decision has paid dividends to the company, with vegan meals accounting for a huge 7% of all dishes ordered in Zizzi restaurants in 2018.
Kathryn Turner, Director of Food Development at Zizzi says: “Over the past year we’ve seen vegan dishes become more popular than ever and we’re anticipating that this January will be the biggest Veganuary yet. Our vegan customers tell us it’s important that they have a wide choice and are not just ‘stuck’ with one option from the menu. We hope they’ll love our first four vegan cheese pizza and hope it will help first-time vegans get their cheese fix this month. We can’t wait to hear what our customers think.”
Simon Winch Veganuary CEO says: “Veganuary is creating a new wave of consumers and shoppers with both strong ethics and a big appetite! Right now, there is a real opportunity for brands, retailers and restaurants to improve, expand and promote their vegan and plant-based offerings to a wider audience. We’re delighted that Zizzi is one of those companies that’s risen to this challenge – helping us to create the change we desire and provide the product to meet the consumer demand – we can’t wait to try the Quattro No-Maggio!”
The Quattro No-Maggio is available nationwide from 8th January and in selected restaurants from 2nd January.
