Pizza Hut Now Offers Vegan Pizza In The Entire United Kingdom

This week, Pizza Hut in the United Kingdom started offering vegan pizza to excited customers. Dairy-free cheese is a big win for vegans, people who avoid dairy for health reasons, like allergies, or people who just prefer to cut down on animal products when they can. Given that pizza is one of the most popular "easy" food choices to grab when you're going out or ordering in, it's awesome to have dairy-free options at such a major chain. 

Entrepreneur reports that the vegan pizza from the fast food company is being made with cheese from a Greece-based cheesemaker called Violife, which makes non-dairy options. The vegan pies were tested in five locations before being widely released, and they come as both thin crust and deep dish. Customers can order a simple cheese pie, or add a variety of vegetables as toppings.

Customers are reportedly already very satisfied:

It's great that vegans now have an option when they're ordering from chains with family and friends, instead of just gnawing on a small side salad. And Pizza Hut isn't the only fast food joint expanding its food repertoire. Domino's offers vegan pizza in Israel, and McDonald's is offering a McVegan soy-based burger in Finland. Just a small slice of their market, but it could eventually add up to big change. Here's hoping Pizza Hut in the U.S. begins to offer dairy-free cheese, too!
