Purezza plans to launch vegan cheese factory
Following the opening of its first site in the capital, Brighton-based pizza restaurant Purezza is expanding its plant-based reach further with plans to launch a fully vegan cheese factory.

After securing a £35,000 investment at plant-based business event Pitch + Plant, the company says it plans to use the funds- acquired through Vevolution and Bran Investments- to contribute to its upcoming ‘Purezza cheese factory’.

“Oh yes, it's coming,” says the restaurant. “Plant-based, allergen-free, completely natural mozzarella that rivals traditional dairy will be available soon enough.”

The group plans to raise more funds over the coming weeks, in order to provide the plant based ‘cheese’ that it says its customers have “begged and begged” to be made available.

Purezza made its name by serving fully vegan pizzas with plant-based cheese made in-house. It uses vegan meats such as seitan on its pizzas, including the ‘Parmigiana Party’ made with nutritional yeast and seitan; and the ‘Fumosa’ which is topped with smoked tofu pieces and smoked beetroot carpaccio.

It offers a selection of classic sides such as a raw cheese platter comprising artisan cashew based cheeses in a variety of flavours.

Purezza first opened in Brighton in November 2015 , which it says makes it the first vegan pizzeria in the UK.

It made its debut in the capital in February.
