High street chain Pizza Hut is rumored to be rolling out vegan cheese to all its branches following a successful trail.

The eatery tested the vegan cheese - Violife - at five of its UK locations.

According to a report, now every branch in the country will offer the dairy-free topping.

It is believed that the topping will cost an additional £1, and will only be available on pizza eaten in-house, rather than for delivery.

Trials

Earlier this year, a Pizza Hut Restaurants Spokesperson told PBN: "We can confirm that trials for a vegan cheese pizza are set to start in October. 

"Pop down to our stores in Bluewater, Canterbury, Chatham, Crawley and Thanet to give it a go!"

The cheese will be trialed for a few weeks, between October 11 and November 26.

Rolling out

The trial ends today. While the vegan cheese was on offer, a number of people - as well as vegan organizations - praised the topping.

During the test, a spokesman for animal rights charity PETA said: "With a vegan crust, delicious Violife cheese, and a ton of veggie toppings available, Pizza Hut has the opportunity to become a hot spot for people looking to reduce their contribution to animal suffering and environmental destruction as well as to improve their own health."

PBN has contacted Pizza Hut for further details.
