In addition to the three new signature cauliflower crust pizzas, customers can “create their own” pizza with the new 10-inch cauliflower crust and plant-based sausage. These pizzas will be available to order online at Donatos.com, on the Donatos app, and at every Donatos location beginning Jan. 27.
