In 2015 Purezza launched Europe’s first 100% plant-based pizzeria – to show just how tasty Italian food can be without the need for meat or dairy. We had a problem though… The cheese available was letting us down – So we made our own!
Over the last 8 years we’ve worked tirelessly perfecting a range of cheeses which Italians would be proud of. Giving the taste, texture and melt of dairy mozzarella – but made from plants.
Our aquafaba based ‘Mozzella’ and ‘Stracciazza’ have been enjoyed on over 1 million pizzas, and served to thousands of customers up and down the country.
Our cheeses are now being used by fantastic customers including Soho House, Everyman Cinema’s and many more.
We are also very excited to announce that we have recently acquaired La Fauxmagerie’s and their incredible range of products! (More on that below)
Plant-BasedMozzella & Stracciazza
Our Mozzella is an alternative to traditional mozzarella, available in block form or grated Designed to work in pizza ovens – simply top as you would traditional mozzarella and enjoy!
Our Stracciazza tastes as creamy and delicious as traditional stracciatella.
This was created to finish off pizza with a creamy delicious texture to rival burrata. However it also works cooked – so try it both ways and see which you prefer!
