Best Vegan Pizza Recipe Ideas

It’s no secret that the plant-based movement is on the rise in Australia. We’re the third fastest-growing vegan market in the world, with a 9.6% growth rate. The opportunity isn’t just limited to the foodservice industry, with the vegan packaged food market in Australia expected to reach $215 million before 2020

With the rise of the flexitarianism and an ever-growing range of dietary requirements to cater to, adapting your menu to consumer demand has never been more vital.
 
Why you should add a vegan option to your menu:
By adding a tasty, healthy vegan option to your menu, you can create an innovative solution that will appeal to a much wider customer base, here are just a few reasons why you should add a vegan option to your menu:

  • A restaurant that caters to vegans is much more likely to appeal to group bookings where there may be a variety of dietary requirements that need to be met.
  • General word of mouth is a powerful tool; a tasty vegan choice can do wonders for your reputation amongst the vegan community.
  • Most vegan options are generally cheaper with a wider profit margin – our Il Uno Artisan Pizza bases are dairy and egg free, all you need is some vegan cheese (optional!) and a few simple ingredients that will most likely already be at your disposal.
