Pizza Hut has teamed up with Beyond Meat to launch a new Beyond Pepperoni range in the UK.
The range is designed to appeal to meat-lovers, flexitarians and vegetarians as well as vegans, with the option to enjoy the new pizzas with either traditional dairy cheese or plant-based cheese at no additional cost.
It is now available at Pizza Hut delivery locations nationwide, and rolling out at Pizza Hut restaurants across the UK from January 2024.
New Beyond Pepperoni menu items include Big New Yorker, a 16-inch pizza topped with the plant-based Beyond Pepperoni and described as the chain’s ‘biggest-ever’ offering; Beyond Pepperoni Feast topped with Beyond Pepperoni and mixed peppers, available in all sizes; and Beyond Pepperoni Melt, a smaller lunchtime-sized ‘pizza melt’ served with marinara sauce for dipping.
Hameed Jagani, vice president of global strategic partnerships at Beyond Meat, added: “With more and more British consumers looking to reduce their animal meat consumption, we’re thrilled to offer a delicious, innovative plant-based pizza topping that will delight meat lovers, flexitarians and vegetarians alike”.
