REVIEW: New Vegan Plant-Based Spicy Italian “Sausage” Sub is a Surprise Hit at PizzeRizzo in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

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

PizzeRizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios may not have the greatest reputation. After all, it’s run by a rat (and not the French one known for his cooking). Despite how others may feel about PizzeRizzo, it is one of my favorite quick service restaurants in the park. Now that they’ve added a new plant-based spicy Italian “sausage” sub to the menu, I love it even more.

The meal is $9.99 and comes with a “sausage” on vegan “bread”, topped with roasted peppers, onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes. It even comes with a side salad and vegan “ranch” dressing. What a nice surprise!

The Follow Your Heart vegan ranch has a bit more of a zesty kick to it, and the consistency is a little different from regular ranch, but it’s really good.

This is a Beyond Hot Italian Sausage, and seems to be prepared pretty perfectly.

Now, I hadn’t plan-t on liking this vegan sausage, but I was pleasantly surprised. The sausage was delicious and the vegetables gave everything a great taste. Even the bread was really good. This was bold and flavorful, and I don’t think I would have noticed too much difference between this plant-based sausage and a regular one. (If you blindfolded me and tried to feed me those vegan Be Our Guest eggs again, I’d spit them out for sure). I almost think I prefer the taste of this plant-based sausage over a regular one. Oddly enough, when we reviewed the entire B.B. Wolf menu, the vegan brat was one of my favorites there, too.

This is a delicious vegan option here at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. PizzeRizzo is conveniently located near Galaxy’s Edge, so you might want to make a stop in there and give this plant-based Italian sausage a try on your next visit. We will definitely be back for another one soon!

I think the word Italian should be quoted

Quite the proliferation of these reviews lately…to accommodate a mere 2% of the population that choose to participate in this eating disorder. Personally, I would like to see a review of the new fake carrot that is comprised of only meat.

Well, we review practically every new item at Walt Disney World, it doesn’t really matter what it is.

Thankfully this website reviews any and all new food items, whether they’re meat-based, plant-based or Jar Jar Binks-based, but even more thankfully, only an extremely small minority of WDWNT followers share negative opinions of the healthier options, while the rest of us wear grownup pants and don’t still need the crusts cut off our sandwiches.

although… the Uncrustables that Disney serves are certified plant based!

The thing, though, is Beyond/Impossible products REALLY aren’t healthier than meat and are still “junk food”. So get off your soapbox because what you are saying is totally wrong. If you were saying it is environmentally better than you would have a point.

I’m pretty certain that no other sausage has been discarded for a non-meat variety, so that point is moot. It might be 2% (but it’s rising) but it caters for 66% of my party. So that point is moot. And it’s not a disorder, it’s a choice.

As with a lot of ire these days, if it doesn’t affect you personally and your preferred choice is still available, I’d be a little more considerate.

With comments like “eating disorder” the lifeguard was evidently off duty in the gene pool for you
