Paid Partnership with MOD Pizza
It’s awesome that these days most restaurants have a variety of vegan options. The purpose-led people-first, fast casual pizza brand, MOD Pizza, just launched their latest menu innovation: plant-based Italian Sausage. The new plant-based protein is made from non-GMO pea protein and will be a permanent fixture as a MOD topping; customers can add the protein to any pizza or salad, along with any combination of toppings–all for one flat price.
Developed exclusively with Plantly—a chef-created, plant-based food and beverage brand, the plant-based sausage is a classic spiced Italian-style crumble made with only real, high-quality ingredients including non-GMO pea protein, filtered water, expeller-pressed canola oil, and seasoned with fennel, oregano, and thyme. With 12 grams of protein per serving, the plant-based sausage contains no artificial ingredients, fillers, sweeteners, preservatives, flavors, or colorings, and is vegan, gluten-friendly and soy free–offering flexitarian customers a delicious and craveable meatless version of one of MOD’s most popular topping.
“We’ve spent the past two years methodically testing plant-based proteins and simply put, we found Plantly’s Italian plant-based sausage to be completely craveable and far superior in both taste and quality – and were immediately drawn to the real ingredient list,” said Mark Shambura, Chief Marketing Officer of MOD. “We’re excited to bring our customers a product that is not only delicious, but an easy swap or add, if they want to go meatless or simply have more flexible choices.”
Try the new plant-based Italian sausage on The Willow, a limited edition “Flash MOD”, features MOD’s new plant-based Italian sausage on a creamy garlic parmesan sauce base, and topped with shredded asiago cheese, fresh creamy ricotta, sliced mushrooms–baked and then finished with peppery fresh arugula and a drizzle of smokey, rich, Romesco sauce. The Willow is also available as a vegan option, featuring MOD’s new plant-based Italian sausage on an extra virgin olive oil base with chopped garlic, dairy-free cheese, roasted red peppers, sliced mushrooms–baked and then finished with peppery fresh arugula and a drizzle of smokey, rich, Romesco sauce.
The new plant-based Italian sausage is the latest addition to MOD’s current vegan options, including their signature red sauce, regular and gluten-free crusts, and dairy-free cheese. Full allergen information can be found here.
The Willow is available through early November 2021.
