For the Sixth Grader, finding a tasty vegan pizza is a must. Pizza parties are a thing of the past for him, so I think it's important for him to have this treat every now and again. Tofurky claims that this is the "1st Non-Dairy Cheese That Really Melts." Well, they use Daiya cheese, just like Amy's Mac and Cheeze so that is definitely promising! The 12-oz frozen pizza will cost you $6.79 at Vitamin Cottage Grocers, but $8.99 at Whole Foods (gee. . .big surprise). I certainly don't think that's right to pay that much for a frozen pizza. Unfortunately, I think that's one of the reasons why vegan food gets a bad rap as being more expensive. But I think the more people eat vegan, the cheaper the products will become. (The Sixth Grader, of course has no problem with the price . . . ).
To find out how the pizza tasted, keep reading.
You bake it at 420 for 11-12 minutes (10 was perfect). It was quite good! They don't skimp on the cheese and like they claim, it melts beautifully. Very impressive.
A third of the pizza contains 240 calories, 2 grams of saturated fat, NO CHOLESTEROL, and less sodium than regular cheese pizza.
Overall, this is a great choice for a vegan pizza, if you don't mind the price tag.
