Pizza Hut and Beyond Meat have teamed up to create a pepperoni that is plant-based and still delicious. The Beyond Pepperoni Pizza will be available as a test in nearly 70 locations across five U.S. markets for a limited time, only at Pizza Hut. This is just a bonus to the already available vegetarian options they have, like cheese or veggie lovers’ pizza.
This will be a great option for those of us who have kids who previously loved pepperoni, but also just found out where meat comes from. Or, if we’re trying to change our animal product consumption, but struggle every time we smell a delicious pepperoni pizza.
Crisped and seasoned to savory perfection, Beyond Pepperoni delivers just the right amount of subtle heat and offers the same experience and taste of Pizza Hut’s classic pepperoni, now with the added benefits of plant-based protein. Beyond Pepperoni was co-developed by Beyond Meat and Pizza Hut’s culinary teams and is made from simple, plant-based ingredients like peas and rice, with no GMOs, soy, gluten, hormones, antibiotics or cholesterol. As part of its ongoing partnership with Beyond Meat, Pizza Hut is doubling down on innovation and catering to evolving preferences through exciting, diverse protein options.
“Pizza Hut’s new Beyond Pepperoni Pizza delivers the same iconic taste as our original pepperoni that fans know and love,” said Georgeanne Erickson, Chief Brand Officer, Pizza Hut. “With this new plant-based option, we’re giving customers more choices and more reasons to love Pizza Hut.”
For a taste that’s Beyond Belief™, pizza lovers can try the new Beyond pepperoni pizza on any of their favorite crusts, including the innovation icons Original Stuffed Crust® and Original Pan® crusts, at nearly 70 Pizza Hut locations in five cities: Albany, New York; Columbus and Macon, Georgia; Houston, Texas; and Jacksonville, Florida.

Allergy And Contamination Warning!
Beyond Pepperoni is plant-based but all Pizza Hut pizzas are prepared by team members with the same cooking tools and ovens used to prepare and serve our delicious animal meat-based pizzas and pastas.
Beyond Pepperoni does not contain peanuts or tree nuts. However, it does contain protein from peas, which are legumes. People with severe allergies to other legumes (such as peanuts) should be cautious when introducing pea protein into their diet because of the possibility of a pea allergy.
