Pizza Hut just added Beyond Meat vegan sausage to 450 locations across Canada

Today, Pizza Hut is adding Beyond Meat Italian Sausage Crumbles as a permanent menu item in 450 Pizza Hut Canada stores nationwide. The move is the pizza restaurant’s latest effort to meet the growing demand for plant-based protein options.

The vegan meat was created exclusively for Pizza Hut Canada in partnership with Beyond Meat and is featured on three menu items: The Great Beyond (a specialty pizza topped with Beyond Italian Sausage Crumbles, vegetable toppings including sliced ​​red onions, and banana peppers, and served on any Pizza Hut crust); Beyond Italian Sausage Loaded Alfredo Flatbread (a crispy flatbread topped with Beyond Italian sausage crumbles, roasted red peppers and Alfredo sauce made with dairy and mozzarella cheese); and Beyond Creamy Alfredo (a dairy-based alfredo pasta dish topped with Beyond Italian Sausage Crumbles, onions, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese).

Beyond Italian Sausage Crumbles can also be added as a garnish to any existing or build-your-own pizza offering of any size. All pizza dough basses in Canada contain whey powder, with the exception of the frozen pizza and the pizzeria does not yet offer vegan cheese options. VegNews contacted Pizza Hut Canada to inquire about the ingredients for their flatbread.

Vegan sausage becomes a permanent garnish at Pizza Hut Canada

The vegan sausage was first tested at select Pizza Hut Canada stores in Toronto and Edmonton last summer, becoming the first vegan meat option at Pizza Hut in the country. “After seeing the excitement of Pizza Hut fans in Toronto and Edmonton last summer, we are delighted to give Canadian fans everywhere the opportunity to try and fall in love with these Beyond Meat menu items.” Amy Rozinsky, head of consumer marketing at Pizza Hut Canada, said in a statement. “Pizza Hut and Beyond Meat have a common vision to innovate new and exciting products that will delight our customers. Beyond Italian Sausage Crumbles offers a delicious plant-based twist on our classic pork sausage that you’ll have to taste to believe it.

To promote the new options, Pizza Hut is offering Great Beyond mid-size pizzas for free. To have a chance to win, the channel asks customers to post a comment on the company’s Instagram by sharing their “little flexes in life”, such as finally finding a sock at the bottom of the drawer or succeeding in parallel parking in only one attempt.

Until January 30, Pizza Hut is also running a Buy One, Get One offer that allows Canadians to try vegan sausage-topped pizzas at no additional cost when purchasing a regular-priced medium or large pizza.VegNews.BeyondMeatPizzaHutUK2

Vegan Meat at Pizza Huts Worldwide

This national launch is part of a larger global strategic partnership between Yum! Brands, the parent company of Pizza Hut, and Beyond Meat to create plant-based protein dishes to meet growing consumer demand. Canada is the second largest nationwide continuously offering Beyond Meat menu items. After a successful trial of Beyond Meat pizzas in the UK last year, Pizza Hut brought them back as a permanent menu option to all Pizza Hut UK delivery points in July 2021.

In the US, Pizza Hut tested two Beyond Pan Pizzas at all traditional locations and participating Pizza Hut Express locations in 2020, and in 2021, the chain added Beyond Meat vegan pepperoni to the menu of nearly 70 locations in five cities in the United States for a limited time. .
