“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!
Supermarket Vegan Pizza in the UK
Tesco Free From Margherita Pizza
Tesco released this own-brand vegan Margherita pizza in 2018 – it’s also free from gluten.
Cheezly and Tomato Pizza
This vegan frozen pizza is available from Ocado, Holland and Barrett, or direct from VBites website. It’s quite small, but has reasonable reviews and is a great quick and easy option. This pizza could easily be topped with vegetables for a healthier, more filling meal.
Valsoia Dairy Free Pizza with Vegetables
This dairy-free veggie pizza from Valsoia is available through Ocado here. Check out the rest of the range for items like chocolate spread and ice cream sandwiches.
The White Rabbit Pizza Co.
The ‘Smokin Vegan’ from The White Rabbit Pizza Co is available in select branches of Sainsbury’s.
In 2018, Tesco released two sourdough pizzas as part of their plant-based Wicked Kitchen range – Caponata, and BBQ Mushroom. We’ve heard great reviews of both!
Goodfella’s Vegan Stonebaked Falafel Pizza
This frozen vegan pizza from Goodfella’s was released in March 2018. It’s frozen and costs £2.50, making it a cheaper option than many other vegan pizzas.
No Dough Pizza Co.
This vegan pizza has a cauliflower base and is available at Sainsbury’s – find it in the chilled aisle.
Takeaway Vegan Pizza in the UK
All of Papa John’s bases are vegan – just ask them to remove the cheese. We recommend the Garden Party with no cheese and extra mushrooms. Their garlic dipping sauce is also vegan, as are the potato wedges and corn on the cob.
Pizza Hut Delivery
The pan base is vegan friendly – just add all the veggies you like. The garlic bread and potato wedges are also vegan – yay! You can check the full allergen and nutrition info here.
There are lots of independent takeaways offering excellent vegan options. This helpful article from PetaUK lists them according to location. Pictured is a pizza from Basilico in London.
Vegan Pizza at UK Restaurants
In March 2017, Pizza Express released the delicious vegan Giardiniera. You can ask for their vegan mozzarella to be added to any other pizza, and they now have a dedicated ‘vegan choices‘ page on their website.
The first high street restaurant to offer a vegan cheese on their pizzas, Zizzi is a great choice for vegans. The vMargheritaerita is topped with tomato, Mozzarisella cheese (made from rice milk), and basil. You can add extra veggie toppings and there are quite a few vegan starters and sides (the bruschetta looks delicious), plus gelato for dessert.
The bases here are vegan, so just ask for the cheese to be removed and add a few extra toppings. You can also enjoy Rosemary and Sea Salt bread as a starter, and sorbet for dessert.
***Update: As of March 2017, Ask Italian now offer a full vegan menu, including vegan mozzarella, vegan dough balls and a vegan chocolate torte. Check it out here.
In January 2018, Pizza Hut began offering Violife cheese as a topping for their pizzas – yay. You can see all the details on what’s vegan on this page.
