Vegan Options At Pizza Hut

What Are The Vegan Options At Pizza Hut? (Updated Guide)

Pizza Hut is the daughter company of one of the world’s largest restaurant companies, Yum! Brands. Established in 1958, Pizza Hut became the leading restaurant chain with 18,703 outlets around the world. 

Out of the hundreds of food items that the company serves, only a handful of them are vegan, unfortunately. Their vegan menu has fries, cinnamon sticks, sauces, Beyond Pizza, etc.      

Vegans, however, should not worry about it as they can make most of their pizza vegan-friendly. Ask them to remove a few ingredients, and you can eat their delicious dairy-and-meat-free pizzas. Below you can find a list of vegan options at Pizza Hut. 

Vegan Options at Pizza Hut

The Great Beyond Pizza

The latest addition to Pizza Hut’s menu is the Great Beyond Pizza. Loaded with cheese, sliced tomatoes, onions, banana peppers, and vegan sausage, it became an instant favorite. However, their cheese is not vegan, so they better have the pizza without it.

  • Calzone-like P’Zone dough 
  • Pan crust

Pizza Crust Flavors

Pizza Hut offers a lot of crust flavors that embellish your pizza. But only one of them is vegan – Buttery Blend Crust Flavor. So, you can either order a no crust flavor or go with the buttery blend. Avoid their Garlic Buttery Blend as it contains dairy.

Extra Tip

The chances of cross-contamination in restaurants like Pizza Hut are high as they use the same equipment for vegetarian and non-vegetarian items. So, you can request the workers to use gloves and a different pizza cutter for vegan products. Also, see if they can replace cheese with another topping.    

Their allergen guide clearly states that the restaurant cannot say anything about cross-contamination with allergens. They also mentioned that some of their products contain egg, soy, milk, and other allergens. 

Does Pizza Hut Have Vegan Meat?

In October 2020, Pizza Hut added a vegan-friendly option to their menu. This inclusion happened after a lot of pressure from PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) and its supporters. 

Now, their Beyond Meat Sausage Crumbles are 100% vegan and available at every outlet in the US.

How To Order Vegan Dishes At Pizza Hut? 

Ordering a vegan pizza at Pizza Hut would require a lot of modifications in the ingredients. You can simply choose their Create Your Own Pizza option. 

Creating and adding your preferred ingredients to the pizza is better than replacing them in the available recipes. Just omit the cheese and other non-vegan toppings. 

Choose the Buttery Blend Crust Flavor, the only vegan crust at Pizza Hut. Other crusts contain cow’s milk and eggs. Opt for the vegan marinara and Buffalo sauces in your pizzas, or you can have the Buffalo dipping sauce.

Pizza Hut has loads of vegan toppings, such as banana peppers, green chile pepper, green olives, along with the ones mentioned above.
