Domino’s recently announced all 600 of their Australia locations will feature vegan cheese for a limited time! After a Facebook survey requesting vegan cheese gained widespread response, Domino’s listened to consumer demand. The cheese product of choice for these pizzas is supplied by Follow Your Heart, so it resembles the taste and texture of real mozzarella dairy cheese.
Nick Knight, CEO of Domino’s Australia and New Zealand said, “At Domino’s we pride ourselves on our ‘people-powered pizza’ mantra and listen to what our customers want.The popularity of, and demand for, vegan products has increased considerably over the years, so it’s great we are now able to offer this high quality, non-GMO, plant-based and preservative free Vegan Cheese.”
Three vegan pizzas are available on the menu. The Vegan Avocado Veg features fire roasted peppers, mushrooms, red onions, capsicum, olives, and spring onion. Opt for the Vegan Spicy Trio if you prefer baby spinach, tomato, red onion and chili flake. Or, choose the classic Vegan Margherita. Additionally, you can take any item on the menu and add the vegan cheese for $2.95.
Domino’s isn’t the first large pizza chain to offer vegan cheese at select locations. In November 2018, Pizza Hut added vegan cheese to all menus across the UK. There’s also a wide array of pizza locations throughout the United States that provide a wide variety of plant-based offerings!
