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