After supplying some of our favorite pizzas for the past several decades, Pizza Hut is offering something different. The company has partnered with Beyond Meat to create a new plant-based pepperoni pizza. Beyond Meat recently announced the partnership, bringing together its Beyond Pepperoni Pizza to nearly 70 U.S. Pizza Hut locations. According to the company, the pepperoni pie reflects consumer demands for a more diverse range of options.
Dariush Ajami, Chief Innovation Officer at Beyond Meat, released a statement. It reads: “We know there is strong consumer demand for pepperoni, and we’re thrilled to unveil a game-changing plant-based pepperoni topping as the next chapter in our innovation-focused partnership with Pizza Hut.” The meat substitute is described as “crisped and seasoned to savory perfection,” boasting “just the right amount of subtle heat.” Beyond Meat is confident that the alternative “offers the same experience and taste of Pizza Hut’s classic pepperoni.”
The product was co-developed between Pizza Hut and Beyond Meat and will be available to test for a limited-time-only at Pizza Hut locations in Albany, New York; Columbus and Macon, Georgia; Houston, Texas; and Jacksonville, Florida.
