Banza teamed up with Beyond Meat and Follow Your Heart to launch two new meat-free chickpea pizzas that will hit the shelves this month!

One pizza, called The Supreme, is a vegetarian spin on a traditional sausage pizza, made with Beyond Sausage crumbles. The other pizza, Plant-Based Cheese, is a vegan pie with plenty of Follow Your Heart cheese. Both options hold to Banza’s original pizzas in nutrition and health benefits, as they are both high in fiber and protein, with fewer carbs and sodium than most healthy pizzas on the market.

CEO & co-founder of Banza, Brian Rudolph, said, “Chickpeas, and more broadly beans. Are one of the best foods for human health and the environment. Since launching our crust, we’ve hoped to create a vegan cheese pizza. Consumer research echoed that sentiment, along with an interest in supreme. While we aren’t comfortable using meat, we’re filling the void using a plant-based option. We created these two new varieties to give people another way to enjoy their favorite foods, all while eating more chickpeas.”

Both veg chickpea pizzas are going to be distributed worldwide in stores like Kroger, Thrive Market, and Amazon, making them very accessible to many vegans and vegetarians.
