“Our commitment of making it easier for more Aussies to share good times continues, now through more inclusive menu choices. After all, everyone is a Pizzatarian.”

Fast-food chain Pizza Hut has launched new plant-based ‘chicken wings’ in Australia as part of its ongoing commitment to plant-based diners.

This new addition to the brand’s WingStreet range is a first for Pizza Hut both in Australia and globally.

The Vegan ‘Wings’ are made using wheat protein to impart a “meaty texture”, making them perfect for those following a plant-based diet or wanting to reduce their consumption of meat.

An order of these wings comes with the choice of one of their five vegan sauces, including chipotle, hot chilli, buffalo, smokey BBQ, and hickory and brown sugar.

They are priced at $8.95 for a pack of six, along with larger packs of 12 and 24 also available.

‘Inclusive menu choices’

Pizza Hut has been expanding its plant-based menu across the globe to meet increased consumer demand for cleaner, more sustainable options.

Last year, the company launched four pizzas across all locations in Australia including: Vegan Mediterranean, Vegan Deluxe, Vegan Cheese Lovers, and Vegan Margherita.

“The WingStreet brand continues to expand and this addition also builds on Pizza Hut’s vegan menu launched last year,” said Chief Marketing Officer, Chet Patel.

“Our commitment of making it easier for more Aussies to share good times continues, now through more inclusive menu choices. After all, everyone is a Pizzatarian.”

Cross contamination

While the product is vegan, the restaurant chain adds a disclaimer on its site, which reads: “We cannot guarantee that all vegan products will be 100% free from animal products or animal derived products.

“Vegan products may contain traces of meat, dairy or other animal derived products due to cross-contamination during store operations.”
