Difontaine’s Pizzeria In Temple Bar Unveil New Vegan Pizza

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.

DiFontaine’s Pizza In Dublin To Launch Vegan Pizza

Before I went vegan, I LOVED DiFontaine’s pizza. It was the perfect slice of salty, greasy goodness after a night of heavy drinking in The Czech Inn. I love my new vegan life (and I wouldn’t touch dairy cheese with a barge pole now), but I’m absolutely delighted to hear that a restaurant I used to love is getting with the vegan program!

It’s always so disheartening to walk past restaurants and cafΓ©s that used to be favourite haunts in the past, so when one of those businesses decides to cater for their lost vegan customers it’s a time to rejoice!
