Shoreditch pizza place to re-launch as an entirely vegan restaurant


Homeslice by Symplicity, a small pizza chain frequented by stars such as Ed Sheeran, Romeo Backham and Clara Amfo, has announced a re-launch of it’s The Old Street site with a fully vegan menu!

According to their recent press release, the new pizzas will include plant-based Italian sausages, pangratatto, and even meatballs and bolognese sauce! All meat- and dairy- alternatives are created in-house at Symplicity.


Homeslice founders Mark and Alan Wogan, whose kitchen team is lead by chef Neil Rankin, say: “We’re all about delivering on flavour using simple and delicious local ingredients. Our way of thinking in production is more in line with the Italian ‘produce-first’ ethos than most of the meat-based crap that goes on to pizzas everywhere. I promise there’s not a claggy vegan cheese or flavourless protein in sight. I think this collaboration is going to burst a few misrepresented myths about what vegan food can be — and I’m excited to see what both the haters and supporters genuinely think.”

The launch is currently planned for 13th June 2022.
