Long Islanders who’ve suffer from dietary restrictions, lactose intolerance or other allergies can now enjoy pizza and other Italian favorites at select pizzerias on the Island. Various Mario’s & Luigi’s locations across the island are now offering the first allergen-friendly, plant-based mozzarella alternative that melts and tastes like the real thing, for their customers.
Customers who love cheese but had to give it up due to dietary restrictions, can now rejoice as Pleese® Cheese is now available at the following locations:
Founded by longtime New Yorkers and vegans Kobi and Abev Regev in 2017, Pleese® was created to satisfy the desire for a meltable dairy-free cheese that would withstand the scrutiny of the pickiest eaters of all: pizza-loving New Yorkers. Made from a proprietary blend of bean and potato proteins, Pleese® Cheese products are nut-free, soy-free, cholesterol-free and gluten-free and are crafted in an allergen free environment.
“Being a New Yorker that loves pizza, it’s important that our plant-based cheese is available all over New York, not just in the city,” says Regev who works with various restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn. “Now that we’ve expanded throughout Long Island, I’m overjoyed that people who have had lactose issues, food allergies and dietary restrictions can finally enjoy access to some authentic NY pizza options.”
