Yves Veggie Pepperoni will top Pizza Pizza's new Super Plant Pizza, part of a new partnership between the brand and the QSR
TORONTO, June 28, 2019 /CNW/ - Plant-based pizza lovers have reason to celebrate, with the recent launch of Pizza Pizza's new Super Plant Pizza. The innovation, which will be available in all traditional Pizza Pizza restaurants across Canada, is made possible through a new partnership between the pizza chain and Yves Veggie Cuisine, the Canadian leader in plant-based foods.
The new pizza is made with a homestyle Italian tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, a plant-based chorizo crumble and Yves Veggie Pepperoni. The Super Plant Pizza is available on any crust, including the chain's Cauliflower Crust, and can also be made vegan with a dairy-free cheese. Yves Veggie Pepperoni, a vegan, plant-based offering, is also available as a stand-alone pizza topping.
"At Yves, we've been creating delicious and nutritious plant-based snacking and meal options for more than 30 years," said Sandro D'Ascanio Vice President, Marketing and R&D at Hain Celestial Canada which markets and manufactures the Yves Veggie Cuisine brand. "So of course we're thrilled to see the growing demand for plant-based products in the Canadian market - and we're excited that mainstream foodservice brands like Pizza Pizza are meeting that demand head-on, with creativity and innovation."
Yves Veggie Pepperoni is also available at grocery retailers across Canada. Offering the great taste of meat-based pepperoni, the Yves product is low in saturated fat, trans fats and cholesterol, and is made without any artificial flavours or preservatives.
