Domino’s, founded in 1961, is an American pizza chain. It is the second-largest pizza restaurant chain with over 17,000 outlets in more than 90 countries. Not only pizza, but it offers a wide variety of food items, including pasta, sandwich, taco, etc.
Domino’s is a non-vegan restaurant. However, with some modifications in the recipe, you can have vegan food too. These vegan options include pizzas, salads, penne, sauces, sandwiches, and many other items.
So, whenever you order online or visit a Domino’s outlet, don’t forget to try out the delicious vegan-friendly options!
Build Your Own
Domino’s released a build your own pizza option in their restaurants. Using it, anyone can customize a pizza with their preferable crust and toppings. If you want to make a vegan pizza, ask them to avoid cheese. Choose the crunchy thin-crust and tomato or BBQ sauce. There are several vegan toppings as well to add to your pizza.
Pasta primavera, made with vegetables and sauces, is one of Domino’s eminent dishes. Usually, they make it with Alfredo and marinara sauces. Both of them are not vegan. You can either order the pasta sauceless with more veggies or replace these non-vegan sauces with Tomato or BBQ sauce.
Their penne are vegan, so you don’t have to worry about that. Ask the staff to serve it in a dish rather than a bread bowl, which contains milk.
Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich
The Mediterranean Veggie sandwich contains fire-roasted bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, spinach, banana peppers, cheese, and different sauces. They have plant-based artisan bread. So, all you have to do is omit the cheese and ask for a BBQ, sweet mango habanero, or tomato sauce.
Classic Garden Salad
You would think that this salad is vegan, but it is not entirely. It includes red onions, cabbage, iceberg lettuce, carrots, grape tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and brioche garlic croutons. Both cheese and croutons are non-vegan ingredients.

Will Domino’s Have A Vegan-Friendly Menu In The Future?
Domino’s does not have a vegan-friendly menu. PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) urges the pizza chain company to add vegan items on their menu for years. The animal rights group owns shares in Domino’s.
In April 2015, one of PETA’s representatives asked the pizza company to respond to the vegans’ demands and add animal-friendly items on their menu. He pointed out the benefits of such food for humans, animals, and the whole environment.
PETA added that doing so will attract a large market of consumers who do not eat dairy products. Other fast-food chains, like Pieology, Zpizza, Mellow Mushroom, etc., added dairy-free products to their menu, including cheese and vegan meat.
After talks with PETA, IKEA started making vegan meatballs, whereas Chipotle, Red Robin, Subway, and many others serve a wide variety of vegan meats.
Domino’s, however, rejected the offer even though PETA pointed out that vegan products would lead to less cruelty towards animals. The animal rights organization then filed a petition against the restaurant. But, there has not been any response from Domino’s yet.
