Pizza Hut releases vegan stuffed crust following success of pepperphoni
Pizza Hut impressed this January with their pepperphoni pizza. This week they released another vegan offering; Veganuary has caught on in a big way.
It seems like yesterday when I wrote an article about Pizza Hut's release of the pepperphoni pizza. At the time, the fast food company weren't certain if the pizza would make it past January; it was intended to be a Veganuary special, that would only be kept on if the demand was particularly strong.

With such a reserved approach, it seems hard to believe that less than two months later, not only is pepperphoni going strong, but Pizza Hut are adding to their vegan menu with a vegan cheesy stuffed crust.
The filling is made using vialife's remarkably good vegan cheese, and we're told it is just as gooey and delicious as Pizza Hut lovers have come to expect from their stuffed crusts.
Ciara Grace, Senior Menu Innovation Manager at Pizza Hut Restaurants, commented on the launch, saying: “We’re always looking into new and exciting ways to develop our menu and cater to as many guests as possible. The Vegan Stuffed Crust was naturally the next step for us to grow our plant-based offering at Pizza Hut Restaurants. We’re really excited to launch the Vegan Stuffed Crust as we’re confident it’s going to be a hit on both taste and texture.”
Simon Orchard, UK & Ireland Country Manager, added: “The stuffed crust pizza has been a firm favourite for 25 years, and Violife are excited to be partnering with Pizza Hut to make a vegan version a reality.
He went on: “We can’t wait for customers to try the deliciously melty new stuffed crust, and help continue to show people that’s it’s never been easier to go dairy-free.”
With each week, following a vegan diet gets easier.
