Following its successful launch in Glasgow, plant pizza pioneers Veganizza is hoping to take Newcastle by storm with the launch of its new vegan pizzeria.
Available to order every evening direct from their website or via Deliveroo for those within a five-mile radius of the city centre, Veganizza offers a collection of eight straight-up, meat-free pizzas and a selection of indulgent sides, small plates and desserts.
The homemade, meat-free pizzas begin their story with 48-hour proofed sourdough bases that are loaded with organic, locally sourced vegan ingredients.
All its pizza toppings are made from scratch, including a selection of distinctive vegan cheeses that are lovingly handmade in-house.
The classic margherita is coated with a signature San Marzano tomato and basil sauce, stacked with vegan buffalo mozzarella, balsamic heritage tomatoes and basil.
Beetroot is not your average pizza topping, but it’s one you won’t regret, with pumpkin cream, balsamic chilli beetroot, plant-based goats cheese, rocket and sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds.
Another option for those who love artisan veggies loaded onto their pizza is the blistered red pepper and roast aubergine, with garlic oil, cashew basil pesto and rocket.
And the vegan gorgonzola, rioja pear and walnut option takes a classic salad combo but whacks it on a pizza.
For those who like a delicious meat substitute try out Veganizza’s take on n’duja, which features creamy white sauce, buffalo mozzarella, vegan ‘nduja, stem broccoli, sun dried tomatoes, or the sea salt and black pepper vegan chicken, which is topped with white sauce, smoked mozzarella and garlic and rosemary potatoes.
Pepperoni is layered with San Marzano tomato and basil sauce, buffalo mozzarella, vegan ‘nduja pepperoni and basil, while a truffle mushroom and Tuscan sausage option features San Marzano tomato and basil sauce, buffalo mozzarella, vegan Tuscan sausage, truffle mushrooms, chilli flakes and rocket.
You can customise your pizzas with a selection of tantalising vegan dips, ranging from blue cheese sauce and garlic ranch to hot sauce.
Sides offer a variety of nutritious salads including blue cheese and pear or rocket, spinach and basil with cherry tomatoes and pesto.
More indulgent options include mac n cheese, and dough balls of all kinds – from ‘nduja to garlic with truffle aioli and triple cheese dough balls.
Also, on the menu are sweet but spicy maple sriracha cauliflower wings and corn ribs rubbed in chilli salt and coconut.
When it comes to sweet treats, opt for the ice cream cookie sandwich, or for those who prefer a richer dessert, the custard dough balls are creamy goodness wrapped in their signature dough and dipped in cinnamon sugar for extra deliciousness.
