Major Pizza Chain Adds Vegan Cheese to Menu

Hundreds of locations of Pizza Pizza in Canada will now serve a vegan pie made with Violife cheese.

Chain restaurant Pizza Pizza recently added Violife vegan cheese to the menu at 419 locations across Canada. “We're on a mission to provide quality options that meet the different flavor and dietary preferences of our customers," Pizza Pizza CEO Pat Finelli said. "This new dairy-free vegan cheese is just one more way customers can make our pizza their own." Former basketball star and vegan activist John Salley first approached Finelli last year to suggest he add non-dairy cheese to Pizza Pizza’s menu, and has worked with the company to implement the change. “More and more consumers are moving towards a plant-based diet and eating less meat,” Salley said, “so I applaud Pizza Pizza for providing consumers with options that are not only healthier, but also taste great.” Stateside, plant-based options are also becoming increasingly more available on restaurant menus—including the vegan Impossible Burger, which fast-casual chain Bareburger added to its menu at 43 locations last week.
