So you need that pizza fix? Or you're with your mates ordering pizza and don't want to miss out ๐Ÿ™‚ Check out my guide for the vegan options on the menu for the UK Papa John's. If you're ordering, and people are deciding which pizza chain to go for, make sure you swerve them to Papa John's as they are the most vegan-friendly chain in the UK (don't even think about Domino's!)


Check out the items below that are suitable for vegans:


  • Create your own – pick the Original or Thin base, and don't forget to remove the cheese as it's automatically added, then add any of the following:ย Baby Portobello Mushrooms, Black Olives, Fresh Pineapple, Fresh Tomatoes, Green Chilli Peppers, Green Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers, Onions, Red Onion, Red Peppers, Sliced Pepperoncini, or Sweetcorn.


  • Potato Wedges
  • Corn on the Cob


  • Barbeque
  • Hot Buffalo
  • Special Garlicnot Garlic and Herb, that has egg in it
  • Sweet chilli


  • Cinnamon Knots


Here's my usual vegan pizza that Domino's shared on their Instagram feed:

    Can you tell me how you know the garlic sauce is vegan? All vegans seem to be mad for it but on their allergen info (PDF download) it clearly states that it’s not vegan and contains egg. So I’m confused…

    • Daniel says:

      Their Garlic & Herb dip is the one that contains egg. They state their Special Garlic dip isn’t vegan but it is, just with an allergen warning in case of cross contamination.

  2. Amy Joanna Hunt says:

    If they’re so vegan friendly, why can’t they use vegan cheese instead of nothing at all?

    • Rich says:

      I know, I wish they did ๐Ÿ™ The first pizza take out to do it will sell so many pizzas, not just to vegans, but all the lactose intolerant people too! We can keep asking, and soon they might listen?

      • Anne says:

        Village pizza have a small range of vegan pizzas with vegan cheese and some vegan mock meat subtitutes.

        • Rich says:

          Wow, where is that? I need to try them ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Anne says:

            My nearest branch is Twickenham, also one in Epsom.. you can check
            For the vegan pizza list they have in the vegetable pizza section and for the nearest location to your area.

      • Vegan says:

        Pizza Express and Pizza Huts now started doing vegan pizza, using violife. I just they all start doing it.

  3. Jade Cossins says:

    This dough is NOT vegan

  4. Jade Cossins says:

    I had to have a refund because they told the wrong dough to my mum and they told me that they add milk to all dough just to let you all know

  5. Sophie says:

    Not any base unfortunately, the pan dough is fried in butter according to their website allergen info. It’s listed on the last page:

  6. Melanie says:

    Unfortunately they no longer do cinnamon knots, they now do cinnamon pull aparts which are not vegan ๐Ÿ™

    pizzas are still nice though ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for this little guide, its very helpful!
    Maybe consider doing one for ordering Pizza Hut?
