Calgary – Western pizza chain Pizza 73 is rolling out a cauliflower crust pizza, two plant-based protein toppings and its ‘Super Plant’ pizza in its 88 restaurants,

The Cauliflower Crust is currently available in medium size and contains two servings of vegetables in every 12-inch pizza. The crust alternative is a source of iron and fibre and is gluten-free and vegan, Pizza 73 said in a news release.

Customers can now customize any pizza with plant-based pepperoni and plant-based spicy sausage crumble.

The Super Plant Pizza is the first wholly plant-based protein topping recipe on the menu. A mouth-watering combination of flavours, the recipe includes: traditional tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and is topped with plant-based pepperoni and plant-based spicy sausage crumble.

Customers are also able to order the new Cauliflower Crust with dairy-free vegan cheeze.

“The resounding feedback from our customers has been for healthier options and more flexibility, so we are excited to deliver on their requests,” said Paul Goddard, chief executive officer for Pizza 73.

Yves Veggie Cuisine supplies the plant-based pepperoni, and Field Roast Grain Meat Co., owned by Greenleaf Foods, supplies the plant-based spicy sausage crumble.
