The Canadian Business Journal reports that Pizza Pizza has announced it will carry vegan cheese, allowing Canada’s growing vegan community to customize their pizzas. The move makes Pizza Pizza one of the first major Canadian chains to add dairy-free cheese to their menus.
The certified-vegan cheese is made by Violife, a company of self-described food enthusiasts who believe that cheese is all about love, family, and happy memories. All 750 Pizza Pizza locations across Canada now offer the cheese.
MFA supporter and former NBA champion John Salley is co-owner of Violife. Salley said in an interview:
The rich flavour and creamy texture of our vegan cheese makes it the perfect substitute for any pizza. More and more consumers are moving towards a plant-based diet and eating less meat, so I applaud Pizza Pizza for providing consumers with options that are not only healthier, but also taste great.
