After Less Than a Year, Vegan Pizza Menu Is a Hit for Sarpino’s

The Chicago-based chain said its vegan pizzas and other items have attracted a new clientele with dietary restrictions.

  • The Chicago-based Sarpino’s Pizzeria chain introduced an extensive line of vegan pizzas in 2020, providing new options to “customers that were previously restricted.”
  • Sarpino’s menu has 13 plant-based pizzas, many of which feature Beyond Meat and Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese.

Sarpino’s Pizzeria, with locations throughout the Midwest and Southeast, says its lineup of vegan pizzas, unveiled in June 2020, has been a success, bringing in new customers drawn to its extensive plant-based menu.

In a press release, the company said it has been able to “provide great food options to customers that were previously restricted” and “plans on continuing to enhance [its] vegan offerings, [which have] resonated well with the customer base.”

Vegan pizzas on the Sarpino’s menu feature Beyond Meat products and Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese as well as other plant-based toppings. The pizza menu includes the Vegan Dubai Special Pizza, the Vegan Florentina, Vegan Basiliko, Vegan Mediterranean, Vegan Tuscany, Vegan Sorrento Delight and many others.

Last November, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) listed Sarpino’s as one of the top 50 chains offering animal-free pizza.

Sarpino’s has celebrated Meatless Mondays every week in April with a 10 percent discount on all non-meat menu items, excluding appetizers and desserts.
