PIZZA RESTAURANTS - Warning!

Many vegans wrongly assume that all pizza without cheese is vegan. In some pizza restaurants in the UK the pizza base or the tomato sauce contain dairy or other animal-derived ingredients. Also, pasta dishes are often made using egg pasta! A summary of the main pizza restaurants follows.

Pizza Express have written to us (see letter) to confirm that that their pizza bases are suitable for vegans, as is their tomato base which is simply fresh tomatoes, salt, pepper and fresh basil. They state it is important for you to mention how strict your diet is to the manager on duty, so as the chef can implement all necessary procedures to avoid cross contamination. They now have a cheeseless pizza "Pianta" which is vegan. On request their dough balls, bruschetta and garlic bread can be made without dairy, substituting olive oil instead.

Ask Restaurants (ASK) have confirmed that that their Margharita, Mushroom, and Vegetariana pizzas (ordered without cheese, of course!) are suitable for vegans. Dominos Pizza have a number of vegetarian pizzas listed on their website but the pizza bases contain milk!

Pizza Hut: they have reformulated their pizza bases - Pan and Italian bases are suitable for vegans providing that the pizza toppings you order do not contain cheese and meat products. (per email from them dated 30th November 2010)

CHAIN OF CAFES & RESTAURANTS I'm a little loathe to include omnivorous restaurants on these web pages. However you may occasionally find yourself in a part of London where there isn't a veggie restaurant nearby. You may then find the following website, courtesy of
@TheAllAnimalVegan, very helpful. It lists the chain restaurants that have vegan menus or vegan options.
