“This is a significant addition to our menu,” said Mark LaRosa, president and chief culinary officer at LaRosa’s. “Over 60% of what we serve is pizza, and we wanted to offer plant-based topping to our guests who love our pizza, but are trying to limit the amount of meat they eat. So we needed to get this right.”

Plant-based toppings that will soon be available at the restaurant include pepperoni, Italian sausage, meatless chicken and vegan cheese. The plant-based deluxe pizza can be made with any crust and includes LaRosa’s family recipe pizza sauce, plant-based pepperoni and Italian sausage, green peppers, onions and vegan cheese.
