Daiya Foods, Canada, teamed up with Beyond Meat, El Segundo, Calif., to extend its frozen pizza lineup.
The new "Supreme Pizza" offering combines Daiya's dairy-free Mozzarella Style Shreds with Beyond Meat gourmet meatless sausage, peppers and onions and the perfect amount of tomato sauce atop a crispy, artisanal, gluten-free crust.
"At Daiya, we are passionate about good food, and are committed to sharing our love of food by producing amazingly delicious products that are also dairy, gluten and soy free," says Michael Lynch, vice president of marketing of Daiya Foods. "With over 22 million vegetarians, a third of the population who is dairy sensitive, and an ever-increasing number of people now following a plant-based diet, we are fortunate to cook up our latest creation with industry leader Beyond Meat, who is well known for revolutionary and great-tasting, plant-based products that offer the same taste and texture of meat. This enhances the taste appeal of our latest Supreme Pizza offering and helps us truly deliver on Daiya's goal of providing healthier versions of everyday foods people love to eat."
"Beyond Meat is happy to provide delicious plant-based meats for those seeking to reduce their intake of animal protein," says Ethan Brown, founder and CEO of Beyond Meat. "With the Supreme Pizza from Daiya, consumers can conveniently enjoy their favorite pizza now topped with meat made from plants, containing all the protein and taste found in meat, but with none of the saturated fat, cholesterol, antibiotics, hormones or GMOs."
The Daiya Supreme Pizza boasts a suggested retail price of $8.99.
