Zizzi is launching its PETA Vegan Food Award winning vegan jackfruit pepperoni pizza at Sainsbury's this weekend
Staying in is the new going out, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on some of your favourite restaurant dishes as Zizzi’s is launching its ground-breaking vegan pepperoni pizza at Sainsbury’s.
In 2019, the high-street restaurant chain teamed up with plant-based protein company Jack & Bry to develop the UK’s first-ever jackfruit pepperoni pizza and you’ll soon be able to enjoy it it the comfort of your own home as Zizzi’s is launching the pizza as part of its new retail range in 307 Sainsbury’s across the UK from 13 September.
The Vegan Jackfruit Pepperoni (£4.50) is made with “premium restaurant-quality ingredients” such as Italian grain leavened dough and is topped with the same Jack & Bry jackfruit pepperoni and vegan MozzaRisella as found in Zizzi restaurants.
The popular pizza, which was the first vegan dish to be permanently added to the main menu at Zizzi, even comes complete with a mini bottle of chilli or basil oil to drizzle on top for the full restaurant experience.
‘First ever at-home offering’
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Rachel Hendry, Marketing Director at Zizzi, says “We know our customers missed their Zizzi Favourites while at home in lockdown, so this partnership is a huge opportunity to launch our first ever at-home offering – bringing amazing flavours from our restaurants to your kitchens, for great times at home.
“We’re really proud of the Rustica Pizza range and can’t wait for Zizzi fans to try them and hear what they think!”
The Zizzi Rustica Jackfruit Pepperoni Pizza will be available in the frozen aisle of selected Sainsbury’s supermarkets nationwide from Sunday 13th September.
