Vegans in Israel are no doubt pretty excited that Domino’s pizza eateries in their country now offer vegan pizza! They are the first country in the world where the chain pizza joint is offering the vegan pie.
The latest change in their menu comes after a great response via a Facebook page called Vegan Friendly, where many Facebook users chimed in that they’d like to see a vegan option (complete with vegan cheese) offered at Domino’s. The page works to promote and encourage more vegan options in more places.
“Israel is leading the vegan revolution around the world, and this is another indication,” said director of Vegan Friendly, Omri Paz. He said vegans could now order from the chain “without pangs of conscience.”
The vegan pizza comes with a soy-based cheesy topping and veggies. It sells for 69.90 shekels ($19.91).
Domino’s Pizza has 50 branches in Israel. Yossi Elbaz, the CEO of the Israeli franchise, said it took six months to develop and taste-test the vegan version. “We’ve notified Domino’s Pizza’s world headquarters and they’re very pleased,” Elbaz said. “They’re waiting to see the results.”
Fingers crossed that the new vegan pizza will soon be added to menus around the world!
