Attention, plant-based pals: Zizzi has launched a new vegan pizza and it sounds amazing.

The new jackfruit pepperoni pizza comes in partnership with plant-based protein company Jack & Bry.

The Jackfruit Italian Hot is topped with a new kind of pepperoni to create a vegan alternative to the classic, so now vegans dont have to miss out on enjoying circles of meaty joy.

The plant-based pizza, which costs £10.75, is the first vegan dish to be permanently added to the Zizzi menu, and has been voted as the Best Vegan Pizza at the PETA Vegan Food Awards 2019.

The new pizza comes topped with four ingredients: spicy harissa, roquito chili, vegan Mozzarisella and jackfruit pepperoni.

It took 12 months to develop the palm oil-free meat alternative which is high in fibre and also features 70% less fat than the traditional meat pepperoni.



So yes, its a pretty healthy option all round – even for those who arent vegan.

The Jackfruit Italian Hot is available as a Rustica, Classic or Skinny pizza and comes as part of Zizzis new Autumn menu which will be available from 15 October.

Bryony Tinn-Disbury, Co-Founder of Jack & Bry says: Were absolutely thrilled to be working with Zizzi on their latest vegan dish. There is a huge opportunity right now for brands and restaurants to listen to their audiences by expanding their plant-based offerings. Its great that Zizzi are committed to its audience and are helping to create delicious, guilt-free plant-based alternatives.
