Following the launch of the Vegan Pepperoni Pizza last month, there is a tasty new addition to Pizza Hut vegan menu, a Vegan Stuffed Crust – developed using Violife’s vegan alternative to cheese.
Since the launch last year of the vegan jackfruit pizza, the ‘Jack ‘n’ Ch**se’, Pizza Hut Restaurants have kept expanding their plant-based options that now include a choice of seven vegan pizzas, as well as vegan nuggets and vegan cheesecake.
Pizza Hut invented the concept of the popular stuffed crust 25 years ago, selling now on average 1.6 million a year. This vegan version is filled with Violife’s dairy-free cheese which is encased in the crust.
Since launching the first-ever vegan cheese platter, Violife has become a firm favourite amongst dairy-free cheese brands. Made from coconut, its grated cheese melt beautifully and is ideal to use in various plant-based dishes such as pizzas, burgers or nachos.
Last week I headed to our local Pizza Hut to try it out the new vegan stuffed crust and picked a BBQ ‘Jack ‘n’ Ch**se’, made with a topping of tomato sauce, Violife Vegan Ch**se, BBQ jackfruit, peppers, red onions, sweetcorn, and BBQ drizzle.
The BBQ ‘Jack ‘n’ Ch**se’ is a very tasty pizza with loads of toppings and a delicious BBQ flavour. Having tried it before on a thin base, this time I really enjoyed the gooey dairy-free stuffed crust.
The Vegan Stuffed Crust option is available as an 8-inch rectangular Individual Pizza for a £2.50 add-on cost, so my vegan stuffed crust BBQ ‘Jack ‘n’ Ch**se’ was £14.99. While it is a very nice pizza and I had more than enough to eat, I still found the cost a bit steep.
Our pizzas were all really tasty, the staff friendly and we certainly enjoyed our food. The kids also love the all-you-can-eat salad buffet. However, none of us were particularly impressed by the new ordering system. Having waited in the porch to be seated at a table (in spite of the restaurant being only three-quarters full), we had to queue again at the till to order and pay upfront for our meal. The kids were getting really impatient and while queueing for the till inside the cordoned waiting line (not a restaurant experience I generally look for), I was grateful this was not a really busy day.
If you want to try the new vegan stuffed crust pizzas, Pizza Hut Restaurants’ plant-based options are available to dine-in and take-out at every restaurant in England, Scotland, and Wales, as well as for delivery from selected Pizza Hut Restaurants on Deliveroo and Uber Eats.
