Pizza lovers and vegans everywhere, rejoice! For years, vegans have had to make do with substandard, dairy-free food when dining out… but not anymore.

Pizza Hut has just revealed that they will be offering pizzas made with vegan cheese in all of their branches nationwide, thanks to a hugely positive reaction to the initial trial.

Now anyone with a lactose intolerance can enjoy a deliciously cheesy margherita and vegans will be able to skip the tiresome Google search for their nearest vegan-friendly restaurant.

Gareth Hopley, Head of Communications at Pizza Hut Restaurants, expressed his excitement at the new additions to their menu:

"After an amazing customer response to our vegan cheese trial earlier this year, we’re pleased to announce that the dairy-free alternative will now be served in all of our restaurants nationwide and feature as a permanent fixture on our menus," he commented.

"We’re excited that all of our cheese-loving vegan customers will be able to grab a slice of the action and no longer have to miss out – we can’t wait to hear their thoughts!"

Pizza Hut has chosen to use cheese from Violife, a brand that prides itself on producing food that’s vegan and free from preservatives and GMOs.

The news may have only just broken, but there’s already been a surge of positive responses to the announcement. People have taken to social media to voice their opinions, with many saying that this has been a long time coming.

Lydia Porter, a 22-year-old artist, tweeted: "Pizza Hut are finally doing pizzas with vegan cheese and I’m so excited to be able to eat there again," while Amy Kennedy, a 19-year-old writer tweeted: "#Pizzahut releasing #vegan cheese across the UK is amazing!!! Big step for veganism."

Pizza Hut now joins other nationwide pizza chains including Pizza Express and Zizzi who offer vegan cheese on their menus.

It’s safe to say that a great number of vegans will now be salivating at the thought of digging into a cheese-tastic pizza at Pizza Hut, one slice at a time.
