Little Caesars to be first to launch plant-based pepperoni

We have seen the plant-based protein market explode in the last year. Now, products are overtaking your pizza.

Little Caesars will become the first major pizza chain to offer a plant-based pepperoni. It is called “planteroni” and it is made from pea protein and spices.

The maker, Field Roast, says that it is the first alternative pepperoni not made from soy.

How does it compare to the real deal? Tasters said that it was a little too soft, and they missed the crispy edges of traditional pepperoni.
