What Is Vegan Pizza?
What Is Vegan Pizza?
Veganism is a diet where people do not consume any animal products. This includes the obvious stuff – like meat – but also includes a variety of more subtle ingredients, like cheese, gelatin, and coloring agents made from animals. Seeing as one of the main ingredients to pizza is cheese, it can be hard to find a vegan pizza! Luckily, all it takes is getting the right cheese substitute and some meatless toppings. Read on to see how we’ve perfected our vegan pizza option.
Vegan Crust and Naturally-Vegan Sauce
Our vegan crust is devoid of any animal products, and serves as the base of our pizza. Our tomato sauce is hand-picked from family-owned farms, always made fresh and without preservatives. Because we made natural ingredients a priority, there’s no need for anything animal-related in this sauce; it’s just tomatoes! Together, our vegan crust and naturally-vegan sauce provide the perfect start to a vegan pizza.
Daiya is a company known for their wide range of diet-friendly products, and they’re most famous for their dairy-free mozzarella cheese, which is what we use on our vegan pizzas! It’s not easy finding the perfect vegan cheese, but Daiya was the obvious choice. It’s not only tasty and healthy, but also looks and feels like real cheese when cooked. It even stretches, bubbles, and oozes! You can learn more about Daiya in this blog, which spotlights all the reasons we adore their products.
Impossible is a company that has been making meatless options for a while. What makes them so special is that their authentic meatless meat is made with heme. Heme contains iron, and is what gives foods a “meaty” taste. While heme is found naturally in animal meat, it can also be derived from plants! It’s so good that vegans and non-vegans alike add it as a topping to their pizza. If you’re looking to learn more about Impossible meat, check out our blog on it!
Uncut Plant-Based Sausage
UNCUT has been a pioneer in plant-based meats, and is the world’s first 100% plant-based Italian sausage available. This tasty topping looks, cooks, and tastes just like freshly ground sausage.
We recently added vegan pepperoni to our menu, made with soy protein and without any animal-based ingredients! It’s a classic topping, made with a vegan twist.
Our Other Vegan Options
Pizza isn’t the only vegan option Fresh Brothers serves! Our Vegan “chicken” tenders are made entirely without animal products, and baked, not fried, just like our other tender options. Additionally, any of our signature salads can be made vegan upon request! Just ask, and we’ll hold anything that’s not vegan just for you.
Why Go Vegan?
There are a lot of reasons people go vegan! Many understand that raising livestock, fishing in large quantities, and other animal processes can be detrimental to the environment, and become vegan to lower their carbon footprint. Others care about animal welfare, and eat vegan to avoid eating animals. Some people even go vegan just for the health benefits! Learn more about our vegan ingredients and why people go vegan here.
