The vegan pizza options continue to grow in Las Vegas. What seems like weekly, new vegan pizza options in Las Vegas are popping up. Now, Pieology is expanding their vegan offerings from veggies and vegan cheese to include three plant-based meat options — diced chicken, spicy Italian sausage rounds and beef meatballs. The new toppings are vegan, non-GMO verified and cholesterol free.
Vegas, as well as 24 cities in California, have already rolled out and on Feb. 12, the vegan meat toppings at Pieology expand nationwide.
The new protein-packed vegan meats (with the chicken weighing in at 20 grams of protein per three ounce serving) are available for an additional $1 per ounce.
“Over the last few decades, culinary innovation has greatly advanced in the area of plant-based proteins bringing their taste and texture to a remarkable meat-like level. Even our non-vegan guests have been shocked at how tasty our premium plant proteins are and how well they pair with pizza. We’re pleased to be able to serve creativity and provide our guests with a broader assortment of delicious, high-quality toppings than ever before,” says Pieology’s vice president of marketing Chad Bailey.
The fast-casual pizza chain with numerous locations in Las Vegas focuses on using fresh ingredients and hand-crafted personal pizzas cooked in a stone oven. At Pieology, you can mix and match toppings to create your perfect pizza starting at around $9.
Order up pizza topped with Daiya cheese and veggies and either their house red sauce or olive oil, then load on the toppings. You can also order salads and hold the cheese.
