The first fully vegan pizza restaurant in the UK is now set to open a second branch due to the growing demand for vegan eateries.
Purezza, which currently has a restaurant on St James’s Street in the well-known vegan haven of Brighton, will be opening its second location in Camden town. According to PBN the new branch will have two floors and a capacity of 100 diners.
Purezza has become a much-loved part of the vegan scene in Brighton, thanks to the restaurant’s fully plant based menu of sourdough pizzas which are cooked in a wood-fired oven. Now, vegans in North London and surrounding areas will be able to enjoy an extensive vegan menu too.
A spokesperson commented: “Purezza has reverse engineered a number of animal-based foods including vegan meat and cheese in its lab in order to recreate them with plant based ingredients. It’ll offer a range of artisan cheeses, including its famous house-blend rice mozzarella as standard for pizzas. It’ll also offer ‘meats’ such as pancetta, mince, and burger patties created with plant proteins.”
Stefania Evangelisti, Co-founder of Purezza added: “London is a hub for both great food and innovation, meaning a London-based Purezza has always been an ambition of ours. We are at the top of the iceberg when it comes to what we can create with plants, and we look forward to having London join us on the journey to see where things can develop next.”
It is thought that if this expansion proves successful, that Purezza could look to expand to other cities around the UK. Earlier this week, pizza giant Pizza Hut announced its plans to roll out vegan cheese to all of its UK restaurants.
