Fact: If you’re a human, you love pizza. Heck, if you’re a robot or an alien, chances are that you love pizza, too. The deep-rooted love we all share for pizza was proved this week, when pizza-lovers from around the world freaked out after learning that Pizza Hut has TONS of customizable vegan options, including salted pretzel–flavored crust. WTF?!

Pizza Hut has made ordering affordable cruelty-free pizza easy—just click a few buttons on your computer and voilà—fresh, hot, vegan pizza is delivered to your door in minutes!

The internet’s reaction to these vegan options is almost as good as pizza itself.

The Crust

You can order the Thin ‘N Crispy or Hand-Tossed crust—both are vegan. Customize them by adding the Salted Pretzel flavoring. Yes, you heard that correctly. You can make your pizza taste like a frickin’ pretzel. And it’s VEGAN! People kind of freaked out about this:

This person even got Mom involved:

The Sauce

Pizza Hut’s Classic Marinara sauce is vegan, but if you feel like trying something new, order the Premium Crushed Tomato sauce or even the Buffalo sauce instead—this spicy vegan hack had the Internet scratching its head (in a good way!).


The Toppings

Don’t settle for a plain pizza with only sauce. Load it up with a crap-load of veggies! Pizza Hut has mushrooms, spinach, Peruvian cherry peppers, red onions, black olives, green bell peppers, banana peppers, pineapple, jalapeños, and Roma tomatoes. We couldn’t agree more with this Instagram user, who had some real philosophical commentary on the vegan toppings at the restaurant:

The Sides

The only thing that can hold a candle to pizza is fries—obvi. Dip ’em in ketchup or put ’em on top of your pizza to give it that extra pizzazz. We won’t judge. You do you. 😉

The Desserts


Three words: VEGAN CINNAMON STICKS. Biting into these morsels of sweet, warm goodness is like hopping into a time machine and going back to your childhood. It doesn’t get much better than that. Note: Originally the icing was vegan, but it seems that Pizza Hut has recently changed the recipe to include milk.☹ So be sure to ask them to leave the icing cup out of your order.

Pure joy, even anger—the internet wasn’t quite sure how to take this news.

These last two responses are all of us:

Oh, and don’t forget to order your pizza with no cheese, because cows! And there you go—your own customized vegan pizza, complete with fries and dessert. YUM.
