Pizza Hut added two plant-based items to their menu.
The pizza chain partnered with Beyond Meat to launch two Beyond Pan Pizzas: the Beyond Italian Sausage Pizza and the Great Beyond Pizza.
The announcement comes a day after McDonald’s said it has created the McPlant, a new plant-based burger that restaurants around the world can start testing in 2021. McDonald’s has not said if the meatless burger will be tested in the U.S.
Pizza Hut’s two new items are available for order starting Tuesday. Customers can order the Beyond Pan Pizzas on Pizza Hut’s Original Pan crust.
The Beyond Italian Sausage Pizza includes tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, topped with Beyond Italian Sausage crumbles.
McDonald’s McRib is coming back: Barbecue sandwich will be available nationwide for the first time since 2012
The Great Beyond Pizza includes tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese topped with crumbled Beyond Italian Sausage, chopped tomatoes, sliced red onions and banana peppers.
Other chains have also added plant-based items to their menus over the last two years.
Burger King launched the Impossible Whopper using the plant-based Impossible patty from food startup Impossible Foods last year. This June, Starbucks added the plant-based Impossible Breakfast Sandwich.
