Blackbird Foods, the brand founded by chefs with the best hand-tossed frozen pizzas that are 100% made from plants, and Daring Foods, a Plant Chicken brand with a short list of simple ingredients and perfectly chicken-like flavor and texture, are joining forces on a new pizza. 

Fans of the plant-based brands have cause to celebrate as they announce their newest spicy collaboration: Buffalo Pizza. As the newest addition to Blackbird’s popular line of frozen pizzas, Buffalo packs a flavorful punch with creamy buffalo sauce, vegan cheese, fresh onions, and Daring’s Breaded Plant Chicken. The one-of-a-kind pizza will be available exclusively at Sprouts.

“I'm particularly excited about this partnership with Daring, as we are demonstrating that plant-based brands can take on harmful industrial animal farming with a united front. We are part of a tight-knit community of plant-based startups that are aiming to displace meat and dairy products in the market and drive consumers towards a cleaner, brighter future” said Blackbird’s CEO, Emanuel Storch.

“We are thrilled to partner with Blackbird to create our new exclusive Buffalo Plant Chicken Pizza,” said Founder and CEO of Daring, Ross Mackay. “It’s exciting to see two beloved plant-based brands with a similar mission come together for the first time to expand into new territories.”

With a New York-style hand-tossed crust made from overnight rising dough, the Buffalo Pizza tastes like it has been delivered straight from your favorite pizzeria. The creamy buffalo sauce creates an element of spicy heat, while Daring’s tender and juicy Breaded Plant Chicken Pieces add a delicious chicken-like flavor and texture. Buffalo Pizza has a quick baking time of only eight minutes, making it bound to become your new meal of choice on busy weeknights and jam-packed weekends. This variety is 100% made from plants, non-GMO, dairy free, and will begin rolling out in all 370 Sprouts stores nationwide.

As a brand with a mission to provide restaurant-quality foods made from plants, a partnership with Daring, a leader in the plant-based community, has created the perfect union. Blackbird and Daring are excited for Buffalo Pizza to roll out in Sprouts stores and can’t wait for consumers to try it for themselves.
