REVIEW: New Vegan Plant-Based Flatbread Pizza is a Gloppy, Slimy Mess at Pinocchio Village Haus in the Magic Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We got no cheese strings to hold us down today! We’re at Pinocchio Village Haus to try the new vegan pizza options. Walt Disney World recently announced a slew of vegan plant-based menu options now available resort-wide. With a variety of guests all having differing dietary needs, this is a welcome addition to the plentiful options already on property. Guests can look for a green leaf icon next to vegan plant-based dishes on menus.

Pinocchio Village Haus is offering an all vegan option of their flatbread pizzas. For the same price of a regular flatbread pizza at $11.99, you now have the option to go vegan. Unfortunately, the pizzas are not on the menu board or available via mobile order, but are easily obtainable just by ordering with a cast member.

Vegan pizza options range from “cheese”, margherita, and veggie. Since it was our first time trying them, we decided to go with the classic “cheese” to get an idea of the base.

“Cheese” is an interesting word for this. The vegan pizzas are made with Toufayan Flatbread and Daiya Mozzarella style shreds, which look like cheese and amazingly sort of melt like cheese. However, this didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to. The shreds melted into this gloppy, slimy texture that wasn’t pleasant. The taste was similar to mozzarella, but was far from it at the same time. It could’ve used a bit of salt or something as the overall taste was bland. Honestly, the best part of this whole experience was the small amount of sauce and bread we had without “cheese”, and even that wasn’t the best.

Unfortunately, this “cheese” pizza wasn’t a hit. We would rather have just a cheeseless sauce and bread pizza instead of covering it with “cheese”.  Let us know if you’re willing to try the new vegan flatbread pizzas on your next trip. If this plant-based menu item has you hungry for more, head on over and check out all the other new vegan food reviews!

Some options are better than no options and WDW is leading DL in that. My son had the gluten free daiya cheese pizza last we were there and was ecstatic that he could have pizza in the park. He has a dairy allergy and has grown up eating not cheese so doesn’t notice the difference. Vegan cheese is not the best but as a cheese replacement I have found daiya to be the most palatable and I thank WDW for making this an option for my son.

Just what does “plant based” mean?? It is quite a DECEPTIVE lable and does NOT tell you what it is… Is it made from trees? Or grass…?? Maybe some kind of flower or moss?? If they disclose what it is, i think it would be far less desirable even if you have so medical dietary need as compared to lifestyle choice… Use caution when evaluating what things are made of… If one of the ingredients is ” potato protien” that does not mean they are slicing potatos, but it could be an extraction of protein from a potatoes on a… Read more »

It means it didn’t come from an animal. Animals based meals are just as modified so that point it basically moot. Not a vegetarian here, just making a point.

Get a pack of daiya cheese or look it up online. It’s mostly tapioca flour and oils.
Humans have been altering food for decades. Look up what peaches and watermelons used to look like online.
All food is tampered with now to try to reduce the amount if pesticides needed to to grow more crops.
On top of that animals are usually feed the GMOs or lacking crops anyway. Then you eat their meat which has been lauded with whatever they ate.
Anyway, something like extracting the protein from a potato or pea it fine. You’re just isolating the protein.

Daiya cheese is horrible I’m sorry.

Thanks for the article. I use to have the same issue when ordering vegan cheeze pizza.
What I have requested when ordering pizza at places like mellow mushroom (they switched back to follow your heart), Eathfare, and whole foods is to have them go light on the cheese. It keeps it from getting too (I’m glad you came up with a word for it) gloppy.
So delicious makes a real good blend I get when we do taco nights at the crib.

Our family ate at Mellow Mushroom for the first time in June in Williamsburg! Enjoyed it a lot. We don’t have anything like that up here!
