Oh my god, the time has come. Difontaine’s Pizzeria in Temple Bar has just unveiled their new vegan pizza! Be still, my rumbling tummy.
The pizzeria made the decision to offer a vegan pizza after gauging interest on their Twitter page:
With 1,075 votes and a resounding 84% YES GIVE US VEGAN PIZZA, they started sourcing ingredients and conducting taste testings with very willing volunteers.
I used to absolutely love Difontaine’s pizza, I made a beeline for it (or Ray’s, depending on how drunk I was – those cobblestones are treacherous in heels!) after every night out when I visited Dublin.
Once I went vegan, I had to say goodbye to many much-loved foods, but I’m so BEYOND happy that I can now have the glorious taste of Difontaine’s back in my life.
From what I can gather, the pizza is sprinkled with a Follow Your Heart mozzarella/parmesan mix with their own cashew ricotta. Early accounts (the pizza is available on the menu from 5pm today) have said that it tastes absolutely amazing. I don’t doubt it one bit.
