To infinity and beyond
Our mission is to create and promote unbelievably tasty plant-based food that’s better for people and the planet. Pizza seemed like a good place to start.
Our purpose is to get plant-based food into the hands (and mouths) of as many people as possible. We’re here to help everyone understand the impact food choices have on our planet, making it easier for us all to eat and live more sustainably.
Our vision is to be the number one vegan pizza brand in Europe, helping millions of people eat and live more sustainably without sacrificing their favourite food.
Mike’s been vegan since the 80s, long before it was cool and waaaay before every coffee shop sold lattes made with plant-based milk. There weren’t many vegan cookbooks around either, so he had to learn to cook cracking plant-based dishes on his own. And he got pretty damn good at it (even starting a couple of veggie restaurants), making it his mission to prove to his family that you could be vegan and not miss out on great taste and flavours.
You could say he’s a bona fide trailblazer. And yes, those are his exact words.
How it all started
Mike and Joe started making their own plant-based pizzas at home, experimenting with ingredients and plant-based cheezes.
From the garage
Mike & Joe noticed that plant-based frozen pizzas just weren’t up to scratch. Wanting to create a go-to plant-based alternative to their much-loved freezer staple, they started One Planet Pizza from Mike’s garage using their family recipe.
Our local success led us to become the UK’s first plant-based business to crowdfund, reaching our goal thanks to investors from all over Europe.
New kitchen space
Mike and Joe gave Mike his garage back, and moved into a kitchen space in their hometown of Norwich, where they produce over 500 pizzas per day.
Stocked across the UK
One Planet Pizza lands at Ocado, The Vegan Kind, and over 500 independent stores around the UK.
