Domino’s Pizza, India’s QSR chain, introduced “The Unthinkable Pizza”, a plant protein-based product.
Made entirely from plant-based proteins, The Unthinkable Pizza is 100% vegetarian and yet has the sensory properties of chicken.
Plant proteins have caught the imagination of consumers around the world, and Domino’s Pizza is the first QSR brand to bring this latest trend to India.
Introduced after extensive consumer testing, The Unthinkable Pizza will provide both vegetarians and nonvegetarians an interesting and innovative option in the menu.
The Pizza would be available at all Domino’s restaurants across Delhi NCR, Mumbai, and Bangalore.
