/ / News

Beyond Meat Inc. and Pizza Hut announced Tuesday a partnership to offer a plant-based meat pizza nationwide. Pizza Hut, a Yum Brands Inc. restaurant chain, said it will be launching its new Beyond Pan Pizzas, the Beyond Italian Sausage Pizza, a cheese pizza topped with plant-based sausage crumbles, and the Great Beyond Pizza, a specialty pizza with veggie toppings that include tomatoes, red onions and banana peppers. “I’d challenge anyone to go try the new Beyond Pan Pizza and tell the difference,” said Pizza Hut Chief Brand Officer David Graves. “The Beyond Italian Sausage is rich, juicy and has the signature Pizza Hut flavors-pizza lovers everywhere are going to love it.” Shares of Yum Brands were still inactive premarket while Beyond Meat’s stock tumbled 18.9% after the company reported late-Monday third-quarter earnings that missed expectations. Meanwhile, futures for the S&P 500 fell 0.6% ahead of the open.
