With newly launched vegan Ben & Jerry’s and Baileys almond milk liquor, there’s never been a more delicious time to be shunning animal products.
美国冰淇淋品牌Ben & Jerry’s和百利酒(Baileys)新近推出了素食杏仁饮品，为素食主义者带来了福音。
But come October, life for British vegans is going to reach new highs. Brace yourselves: Pizza Hut is launching vegan cheese.
Vegan food company Violife have announced that the pizza chain are going to be trialling their vegan cheese on pizzas for eight weeks.
From Wednesday 11th October to Sunday 26th November, vegans will have the opportunity to indulge in a pizza feast with their omnivore pals, rather than being consigned to the salad bar.
As tasty as a salad can be, you don’t go to Pizza Hut for salad. You go for cheesy, doughy, oozy pizza. And maybe the ice cream machine.
But as well as the limited time frame, the vegan pizzas will only be available in five branches: Canterbury, Chatham, Thanet, Bluewater and Crawley.
So the question is, how much of a pilgrimage are you willing to make for your vegan pizza?
Oh, but make sure you don’t get the gluten-free pizza base as that contains egg.
Needless to say, vegans across the UK are very excited by the news.
“While it might’ve taken a while for Pizza Hut to catch onto the vegan trend, it’s great to see vegan options becoming even more accessible,” Nathaniel Wallis, owner of Veggie Athletic, told The Independent.
素食运动(Veggie Athletic)的发起人纳撒尼尔·沃利斯(Nathaniel Wallis)告诉《独立报》(The Independent)：“必胜客要引发素食风潮可能还为时尚早，但是能有更多的素食选择真的很棒。”
“Social media has gone crazy over the news and hopefully that means we’ll see the trial eventually spread to the rest of the UK.”
Pizza Hut isn’t the first chain to get on board the vegan pizza train though – Zizzi, Pizza Express, Ask Italian and MOD Pizza all offer “vegan mozzarella alternatives” on their pizzas.
必胜客不是第一家做素食披萨的连锁店，像Zizzi、Pizza Express、Ask Italian和MOD Pizza都在供应素食干酪披萨。
