Vegan pizza restaurant Purreza, in the UK, has won big at the World Pizza Championships.
Purreza, with restaurants in Brighton and London, won top prize at the Campionato Mondiale Della Pizza in Italy.
Purezza’s head chef, Filippo Rosato, said:
“The Campionato Mondiale Della Pizza is the gold standard of awards for pizzerias and pizza chefs around the world. It’s the competition that every pizzaiolo aspires to compete in.
“To even be there as the first vegan pizzeria was an incredible experience, but to have come away with one of the awards for the Pizza Classica category is more than I could ever have hoped for, and shows that vegan pizza isn’t just possible – it’s the future.”
