Supermarket giant, Waitrose to stock all new Pizza Express vegan cheese pizza.
The Vegan Giardiniera will go on sale at Waitrose later this month in stores and is the first all-vegan pizza from Pizza Express to be sold in supermarkets.
Much to people’s delight, the pizza will be topped with vegan mozzarella cheese, as well as spinach, artichokes, garlic roasted mushrooms and there famous passata sauce.

Vegan Pizza Supermarket Battle
2018 has been the year of the vegan pizza with Sainsbury’s & Asda stocking the now famous Goodfella’s falafel frozen pizza at a modest £2.50.
Sainsbury’s also sneaked in a dairy & gluten free Whole Creations pizza in the summer which is topped with butternut squash, red pepper and caramelised onion vegan cheese.
White Rabbit pizzas have also found there way onto supermarket shelves with their gluten-free Smokin’ Vegan chilled pizza being sold for £5 at Waitrose and Sainsbury’s.
Tesco sell an incredible Wicked Kitchen vegan Sourdough Caponata pizza, but without cheese. And vegan company One Planet Pizza have made their way into independent supermarkets across the UK.
Matthew Giglio, self confessed Vegan Pizza-holic, commented: “I cannot wait for the new Pizza Express Giariniera. Vegan pizzas have taken over this year for me and I am really enjoying the variety hitting the shelves – the vegan mozzarella is also improving!”
Pizza Express created a whole new vegan menu this month at their restaurants, introducing the UK’s first chain restaurant to have jackfruit as a pizza topping. They have also added a new pasta dish and vegan carrot cake to their existing menu.
