Pizza night is the best night of the week. After days of homemade meals, it’s nice to kick back and let someone else do the cooking for you—particularly when it involves glorious carbs slathered in sauce and all of the toppings. It’s even better when you don’t even have to leave the house. Simply put, pizza is divine. And (wait for it), even if you’re avoiding meat and cheese, you can still order from your go-to pizza chains (yay!). Yes, that’s right—Domino’s has vegan pizza.
Every Vegan Option at Domino’s
With more than 17,200 stores worldwide, Domino’s is one of the most popular pizza chains out there. Here’s how to make your order vegan in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
1. United States
At the moment, U.S. Domino’s locations don’t offer vegan meat or cheese. But, don’t count out the possibilities of these coming to a menu near you in the future. Earlier this year, CEO Richard Allison told Yahoo Finance that the company was testing out plant-based beef toppings internally—most likely in the form of crumbles or beef. And with Pizza Hut announcing a trial with Beyond Meat, it may be only a matter of time before Domino’s jumps into the fray, too.
Although Domino’s is lacking plant-based meat and cheese, you can create your own vegan pizza—just leave off the cheese when you place your order. Here are your vegan options at Domino’s U.S.:
Vegan Pizza: Choose the thin crust and top it with regular tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, and as many veggies as you want. Vegetable toppings include baby spinach, banana peppers, onions, garlic, mushrooms, olives, roasted red peppers, and tomatoes. Oh, and pineapple. (New York born-and-raised weighing in here: pineapple on pizza is good.)
Vegan Penne: The penne itself is vegan, but the marinara sauce it comes with contains dairy. Order it without the sauce and top with vegetables.
Garden Salad: The classic salad can be made vegan if ordered without croutons or cheese. Vegan dressings include the Kraft Catalina, Ken’s Golden Italian, Ken’s Lite Balsamic with Olive Oil Vinaigrette, Marzetti Balsamic Vinaigrette, and Marzetti Golden Italian.
Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich: The bread for this is vegan, so order it without cheese. It comes with roasted red peppers, banana peppers, diced tomatoes, spinach, and onions.
Dipping Sauces: The garlic sauce, hot Buffalo, and Italian sauce dipping cups are all vegan.
Still missing meat and cheese? Sprinkle your ‘za with some dairy-free shredded cheese (Daiya, Miyoko’s, and Parmela Creamery are just some of the brands that make vegan mozzarella shreds) and plant-based beef crumbles.
2. United Kingdom
At one point, Domino’s UK didn’t offer any vegan pizza crust options. But oh, how the times have changed! After trialing dairy-free cheese pizzas at select locations in October 2019, the chain finally made the big announcement: vegan pizza is now available at all 1,200 locations across the UK, featuring its own dairy-free cheese made from coconut oil.
“Our vegan offering has been a while coming because we’re determined to make sure it’s full of our iconic Domino’s flavor. We might not be first but we’re always the best – no compromises, ” Aman Prasher, Domino’s chief vegan dough developer said in a statement.
There are also rumors on social media that Domino’s may offer vegan chicken in the UK soon, after a new vegan pizza called The Chick-Ain’t and Vegan Nuggets were spotted on the chain’s menu in Ireland.
Here are the current vegan options at Domino’s UK:
Vegan Margherita: The classic Margherita, featuring tomato sauce and dairy-free sauce atop a hand-stretched dough crust.
The Vegan Vegi Supreme: For all of you veggie lovers out there, this vegan pizza comes topped with mushrooms, sweetcorn, onions, green, and red peppers.
Create Your Own: You can also create your own vegan pizza at Domino’s! Just be sure to order the vegan crust, as the standard base contains milk.
Sides: The Potato Wedges and Fajita Potato Wedges are both vegan.
Dips: Domino’s UK now has a dairy-free version of its Garlic and Herb Dip. You can also choose from Tomato, BBQ, Sweet Chili, Tangy Salsa, Sun-Dried Tomato and Garlic Sauce, French’s Mustard, and Franks’ Cayenne Pepper Sauce.
Domino’s down under is pretty well stocked when it comes to vegan pizza (lucky!). The chain first introduced Follow Your Heart’s vegan cheese way back in 2018. It’s safe to say it was a hit because since then, the chain has added to its vegan pizza options:
Vegan Taco Fiesta: Taco Tuesday, but make it pizza. Featuring vegan cheese, plant-based beef, red bell peppers (or capsicum, if you will), red onion, and creamy tomato sauce.
Vegan Fire Breather: For those who like spice. Dairy-free cheese, beefy crumbles, jalapeños, tomatoes, red onion, and chili flakes.
Vegan Avocado Veg: Dairy-free cheese, avocado, sweet cherry peppers, mushrooms, red onion, bell pepper, olives, topped with spring onions.
Vegan Godfather: A vegan pizza you can’t refuse. Dairy-free cheese, plant-based beef, red bell peppers, diced tomato, and Kalamata olives, finished with creamy garlic sauce and oregano.
Cheesy Garlic Bread: Everything is better with garlic bread. This oven-baked bread features plenty of garlic, vegan cheese, and spring onions.
Vegan Loaded Burger Pizza: Plant-based beef crumbles, vegan cheese, tomato, and red onion, all finished with special burger sauce and spring onions.
4. New Zealand
Domino’s New Zealand also has Follow Your Heart’s vegan cheese on the menu, plus plant-based beefy crumbles. Here are all of the vegan options you can get at Domino’s New Zealand:
Vegan El Scorcho: Vegan cheese, plant-based crumbled beef, fiery jalapeños, and diced tomato, finished with chili flakes.
Vegan Godfather: Just like the one at Domino’s Australia, this vegan pizza comes topped with dairy-free cheese, plant-based beef, red bell peppers, diced tomato, Kalamata olives, creamy garlic sauce, and oregano.
Garlic Bread: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This classic garlic bread is warm and has enough garlic to repel vampires.
Vegan Garlic Bread: Vegan cheese, garlic, and spring onions atop glorious carbs. Need we say more?
