In early 2020, international pizza chain Domino’s will add vegan cheese and crusts at its United Kingdom locations, according to animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The chain will also debut the new vegan options in three additional (undisclosed) countries. “PETA’s corporate outreach team and others have been urging the company to offer vegan pizza for years,” PETA UK posted on its blog. “And we’re excited that the vegan domino effect has finally struck Domino’s, which will join Papa John’s, Pizza Hut, PizzaExpress, Zizzi, and other chains that offer delicious vegan options.” In 2018, Domino’s UK first tested a Vegan Supreme Pizza—topped with vegan cheese made by British brand Bute Island Foods—at select UK locations. Last year, Domino’s locations in Australia and New Zealand began innovating their vegan menu options with the introduction of vegan cheese by United States-based brand Follow Your Heart. In September, Domino’s Australia added soy-based vegan beef—developed by a Brisbane company over the course of nine months—to its menu and recently debuted vegan ham and pepperoni.
