US pizza maker American Flatbread has announced the launch of a new line of flash-frozen pizzas, Meatless Evolution, featuring vegan and vegetarian options.
The company says that the new range is made with pea protein and provides consumers with a ‘healthy serving’ of both protein and fibre.
Each pizza features homemade tomato sauce and fresh herbs, while hand-stretched dough made from 100% organic wheat is used to make the bases.
The line offers two vegan options, featuring dairy-free mozzarella-style shreds: Vegan Pepperoni, topped with plant-based pepperoni; and Vegan Meat Lovers, with plant-based pepperoni and vegan sausage crumbles.
The Meatless Evolution range also contains two vegetarian options: Plant-Based Pepperoni, featuring mozzarella, asiago and parmesan, as well as vegan pepperoni; and Plant-Based Supreme, with plant-based pepperoni, as well as broccoli, mushrooms, mozzarella, asiago and feta.
Retailing at $8.99 per ten-inch pizza, the Meatless Evolution line is launching at select Harris Teeter locations, as well as on the brand’s website, in mid-September. The pizzas will also be available to purchase via American Flatbread’s Amazon storefront page starting in October.
