Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat are the new Coke and Pepsi. Like the soft drink makers, they’re both trying to get their plant-based meat substitutes into as many fast food chains as possible.
There’s White Castle’s Impossible Slider, Del Taco’s Beyond Tacos, Burger King’s Impossible Whopper, Carl’s Jr.’s Beyond Famous Star, and now there’s Little Caesars’ Impossible Supreme Pizza.
The Impossible Supreme is a large pizza topped with sauce made from fresh-packed, vine-ripened California crushed tomatoes, mozzarella and Muenster cheeses, caramelized onions, mushrooms, green peppers, and the Impossible Sausage, which is made from plants.
According to Little Caesars, a 1/4-pound serving of the Impossible Sausage has 270 calories, 17 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol and 17 grams of protein. To give you a little perspective, 1/4-pound of regular beef sausage has 340 calories, 29 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 70 milligrams of cholesterol, and 14 grams of protein.
Unfortunately, the pizza is being tested at participating Little Caesars locations in Yakima, Wash.; Ft. Meyers, Fla.; and Albuquerque, N.M. for a limited time for $12 plus tax.
If you happen to live near a test location and tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
