A first for both brands, the pizza will be available in nearly 70 locations across the US.  “We know there is strong consumer demand for pepperoni, and we’re thrilled to unveil a game-changing plant-based pepperoni topping” – Beyond Meat However, much like the recent UK launch, the pizza contains dairy cheese and as such is not suitable for vegan customers.
