Chicago Town has created its first plant-based frozen pizza with a tomato-stuffed crust.

The frozen pizza brand will launch its first vegan stuffed crust pizza in early January.

It is made from “peppers, onions and jackfruit in a sticky BBQ sauce with dairy-free ‘mozzarella’, cased in a tomato-stuffed crust,” reports The Grocer.

The pizza will cost £3.50 and will be stocked in Tesco, Asda, and Iceland.

Vegan pizza options

UK supermarkets and food retailers are now offering a range of vegan fare for customers looking for plant-based options.

After Goodfella’s entered the vegan market with its first plant-based pizza in 2018, the brand has launched the Spicy Vegetable Salsa pizza, and the Vegan Stonebaked Falafel in the same category.

Supermarket Sainsbury’s is set to introduce 31 vegan delicacies in the fresh, frozen and canned categories in the month of January.

“With more than seven million vegetarians in Britain and the meteoric rise of the flexitarian lifestyle, Britain has certainly got the taste for meat alternatives at mealtimes,” said Charlotte Gledhill, Product Developer for Sainsbury’s Chilled and Frozen Plant Pioneers, in a statement to Totally Vegan Buzz.

Recently, High street food chain Zizzi added a vegan jackfruit pepperoni pizza to its new autumn menu.

On the other hand, Chicago based Gino’s East became the city’s first pizza chain to add a vegan deep dish and thin crust pizza to its menu.
