TORONTO — Pizza Nova will begin offering Field Roast Plant-Based Pepperoni to all Pizza Nova locations. Delivering a similar flavour and texture to traditional pork pepperoni, this launch marks the first time Field Roast Plant-Based Pepperoni, produced by Greenleaf Foods, will be available to consumers anywhere.
“We are proud to offer a plant-based pepperoni that delivers on our Puro Promise of sourcing high-quality products that do not compromise on taste,” says Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova. “The addition of Field Roast Plant-Based Pepperoni to our menu will allow us to expand our offerings and better serve flexitarians, vegetarians and vegans alike — always in the same careful and loving manner.”
The product will be available starting January 11 and is the first pepperoni alternative to be made with pea protein, not soy, and offer the same protein per serving (6 g) as traditional pork pepperoni. Unlike competitive products, the Plant-Based Pepperoni has fat marbling and delivers an authentic, bold pepperoni taste, crafted with fresh spices, including whole pieces of fennel, cracked black pepper, garlic and paprika.
For consumers looking for more flexibility without sacrificing taste, Pizza Nova will offer the Plant-Based Pepperoni as a permanent menu item. It is available as a topping for pizzas and panzerotti and as part of six new plant-based creations, including the ‘Planteroni.’
Field Roast’s portfolio includes more than 25 plant-based meats and cheeses, all flavoured and made from vegetables, grains, legumes and fresh herbs and spices.
