Vegan pie founders open plant-based pizzeria

Marco and Carla Casadei, founders of Young Vegans, a vegan pie shop in Camden, have expanded their plant-based business with the launch of Death By Pizza. The new vegan pizzeria opened in Hackney in November, introducing more vegan food to the area.

Death By Pizza is open from Thursday to Sunday each week, and the food can be delivered via Deliveroo. The menu includes a range of delicious vegan pizzas, such as the Devils Coglioni, which is topped with seitan pepperoni, vegan mozzarella, marinara sauce and basil, and Dead Barbie, which uses BBQ sauce, green onion and chicken-style seitan and vegan mozzarella to top it.

The dough and the mock meats are handmade by the staff at Young Vegans, the restauranteurs’ debut business. The marinara sauce is Marco’s family’s secret recipe from Rimini, Emilia Romagna, Italy.

The Young Vegans founders are also going to be offering their pies via DPD for next day delivery in the New Year, for those living outside of London.

Their pies include a vegan steak and ale, all-day breakfast and a vegan cheeseburger pie – the perfect post-Christmas party comfort food.
