The pizza features Field Roast’s™ plant-based pepperoni, which was released earlier this year. Little Caesars is the first national pizza chain to offer it in such a wide market in the US!

The Planteroni™ Pizza costs $8.49 and will be available in markets around the US as well as Little Caesars locations in Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, San Francisco, Portland, and Detroit. Customers can also add Field Roast™ pepperoni to custom pizzas ordered on the Little Ceasars app or website. In addition to the pizza itself, the company is offering Slices-N-Sticks™, which is a combo of half Planteroni™ Pizza, half cheesy breadsticks.

Jeff Klein, the chief marketing officer at Little Caesars, commented “Planteroni™ delivers a plant-based version of the delicious flavor of America’s most popular pizza topping, and you need to taste it to believe it.” He continued, “This product is really going to surprise and delight our customers.”

Dan Curtin, the President of Greenleaf Foods, owner of the Field Roast™ brand, affirmed, “This is a huge moment for pizza lovers because for the first time, they have access to a zesty, bold -plant-based pepperoni made with pea protein that absolutely delivers on taste.”

The Planteroni™ Pizza is not fully plant-based, however, offering plant-based pepperoni is definitely a step in the right direction.

Eating more plant-based foods is known to help with chronic inflammation, heart health, mental wellbeing, fitness goals, nutritional needs, allergies, gut health, and more! Dairy consumption also has been linked to many health problems, including acne, hormonal imbalance, cancer, prostate cancer and has many side effects.
