ZPizza won an award from peta2 as the “most vegan-friendly restaurant chain.”
ZPizza was chosen for a Libby award over P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Johnny Rockets and Moe’s Southwest Grill. The award stands for the liberation of animals.
According to Rachel Owens, a peta2 Street Team coordinator, the restaurant was chosen by voters for offering its patrons the option to build their own pizza from a variety of toppings without animal products in them.
The restaurant’s menu also includes a specialty pizza known as the Berkeley vegan, served with a variety of toppings, such as vegan cheese, avocados and red onions.
“ZPizza was chosen because it has delicious, vegan-friendly pizza that tastes the same as regular pizza,” Owens said. “It’s a great alternative. It’s on top of its game, and it has the vegan burger crumbles, in case people want something that tastes like meat, without using animal products.”
The Libby award honors animal-friendly products and celebrities who use non-animal products.
Visitors to peta2.com voted for their favorites in 38 categories, ranging from the most animal-friendly athlete to the best vegan cookies.
Peta2 is a youth organization devoted to preventing animal cruelty. The group will recognize the restaurant on their website, and it will write blogs on ZPizza and the other winners.
ZPizza will also receive a plaque from the group.
