New Yorkers just got yet another option for vegan pizza! Chef Pasquale Cozzolino of Ribalta Mo’, a restaurant located in the  Pennsy Food Hall next to Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, has added a 100 percent vegan pizza to their menu! The pizza is gluten-free, lactose and soy-free, and is made out of germinated whole rice.

Chef Pasquale Cozzolino decided to add a vegan option to the menu for one very simple reason, “I had decided to adopt a vegan diet, so I thought: ‘Why not add a vegan pizza to the menu?’” 


“More and more people are becoming vegan, and we like to give every possible option to our customers out of respect for their own choices,” Cozzolino continued. “Many people think that being vegan is strict and limiting, but this is a matter of perspective. As a Chef, I am aware there are innumerable delicious ways to eat vegan, and I want to make my contribution by introducing the vegan pizza on our menu: an option which will allow everyone to enjoy authentic Italian pizza with a dairy-free cheese.”

Whether for personal health, environmental, or animal welfare concerns, more and more people are choosing to leave dairy off the menu and choosing a plant-based option instead. With the vegan cheese market expected to reach $3.9 billion by 2024, it’s clear that dairy-free cheese is here to stay and it’s smart for Ribalta Mo’ to give people what they are craving!

If you find yourself around Penn Station craving a dairy-free pizza, Ribalta Mo’ is located in the Pennsy Food Hall at 2 Pennsylvania Plaza, New York, New York. For more information on Ribalta Mo’, check out their website.
