Where to Get Vegan Pizza in the UK

“But what about pizza?!” This is one of the most common questions you might hear after telling someone that you’re vegan. Luckily, the number of vegan pizza options available is increasing all the time, so you won’t have to go without – whether you’re cooking at home, eating out, or ordering a takeaway.

We’ve split this post into three sections: supermarket, takeaway, and high street restaurant, so keep scrolling to find exactly what you’re looking for. Bon appetit!

Our pizza bases are completely free of animal and dairy products. Our famous passata sauce is made from tomatoes, salt, pepper, fresh basil and oregano.

Introduced in spring 2014 is our first ever dairy free, vegan friendly pizza, the Pianta; fresh and earthy in flavour, combining spinach, chestnut mushrooms, pine kernels and artichokes, on a spicy Arrabbiata base.

You are also welcome to bring in your own vegan cheese to top your pizza, provided that it is in a sealed pack, in date and the date is clearly visible on the pack. Our pizzaiolos can either return to you the rest of the pack or dispose of it. It cannot be brought in/kept at the restaurant for repeat use.
