Pizza Hut has added another vegan pizza to its menu - and this one is controversially topped with pineapple.

The Pizza Colada Flatbread also features tomato sauce, red onion, sweetcorn, rocket, peppers, and bbq jackfruit.

It contains 460 calories - making it a lighter option than its other options.

Vegan Pizza Hut

The Pizza Colada joins Pizza Hut’s burgeoning vegan menu which is available in its 253 UK outlets.

The chain started offering Violife vegan cheese in 2017. In January this year, it trialed its Jack 'n' Cheese pizza, which hugely exceeded the outlet’s public sales target.

Since then, it has released the Margherita, the Vegan Virtuous Veg pizza - with cheese, spinach, mixed peppers, red onions, mushrooms & cherry tomatoes topped with rocket, the Veggie Vegan pizza, cheese, spinach, sweetcorn, mixed peppers, red onions, and mushrooms, and  the Vegan Hot ‘N’ Spicy Veg, which is topped with cheese, peppers, jalapenos, red onions, flame roasted peppers and onions, and Hut House seasoning.

Vegan sides

In addition to a selection of vegan-friendly pizzas - which feature dairy-free cheese - Pizza Hut now offers Jack 'n' Rolls, which are dough rolls filled with sweet chilli, BBQ jackfruit and vegan cheese, as a starter or side, corn on the cob as aside, and Cinnamon Bites for dessert.

Launching the new dishes, the pizza giant said: "We've been proudly serving Vegan Pizza with Violife's Vegan Ch**se since 2017 - and we've used your feedback to help design our new vegan menu."
