Tofurky Frozen Vegan Pizza With Daiya Cheese

We recently tried Tofurky vegan pizza with Daiya cheese. This is the review and it was funkin’ vegan pizza yummy. Highly recommended.

So, as a vegan, one of the things I miss the most is pizza. Yet, I don’t miss the side effects of eating animal products or all of the other bad stuff. Now, if you look up the nutrition data on pizza, the facts are appalling. Regular pizza may taste good, but it is not necessarily good for you. It’s loaded with fat, sodium, and calories. Sure, you get some protein from cheese and vitamin C from the tomato sauce. However, the negatives outweigh the positives.

Tofurky has long been a leader in vegan food products. They started out making holiday plant-based vegan turkey meals for people who needed an alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, and have branched out from there.

Recently, they came out with 3 vegan frozen pizza varieties: Pepperoni, Cheese, and Italian Sausage & Fire Roasted Veggie Pizza and we opted for the latter, but have tried the others. We found them at our local Ralph’s grocery store (Kroger depending on your area)  for $8.79 each. At 14.1 ounces each, they realistically serve 2 people (package says 3). I’ve adjusted the info for two total servings here, with approximately 405 calories per serving, 9 grams of fat, 480 milligrams of sodium, and 19.5 grams of protein. This is considerably less than chain pizza or regular frozen pizza, and the best part is it’s all vegan. No animals were harmed to bring you these most delicious vegan pizzas!

Quick and convenient, it took just minutes to make the pizza. We placed it in the oven and followed the package directions. 12 minutes later, just like a normal frozen pizza, it came out hot and cheesy, and ready to satisfy that vegan pizza craving. They use Daiya vegan cheese, which melts nicely and is likely one of the best brands of vegan cheese.

The crust is amazing; light and crispy, with a good balance of the delicious tomato sauce and other ingredients, which is one of the keys to a really good pizza. Tofurky grills or fire-roasts the veggies which adds extra flavor, and combined with their great vegan sausage, that makes this is a winner.

Yummy!

Tofurky Vegan Pizza is a great product for vegetarians or vegans on the go and those who don’t want to take the time to cook a vegan pizza from scratch. Fast food? Yeah. Fast and best of all no animals suffered for our indulgence.

We like it, but still encourage you to experiment with making your own. I’ll have to post a fresh vegan pizza recipe soon.  Funny thing is that, as a vegan, I have slipped up on pizza before and have noticed it is a weak point for those trying to become vegan. So, it’s good to know this comfort food is easily available at our local grocer. I hope you find it and try it. If you cannot find them at your local grocer, try Whole Foods, or ask your grocer to carry them. They can also be ordered here or various other places online. Enjoy.

Cassées des Baux Olives

Ok. I have tried many olives, but these are the BEST olives EVER! Cassées des Baux Olives are very rare, hard to find, and worth every penny. If in my life I can get a full food service bucket of these, at a wholesale price, it would be better than winning the lottery. Only one place has them online that I know of: Formaggio Kitchen (thank you), and sometimes they are out of stock (keep checking). Waste no time. You must try these. If you get some lemme know, because I’m coming over for dinner!

Country of Origin: France

Region: Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur

Cassées des Baux (unpasteurized) from Grossane or Salonenque olives – one of the few AOC olives, it is produced in the vallée des Baux, in France’s main olive and olive oil producing area: Provence. Cassées des Baux olives are cracked and cured with fennel (fennel seed, fennel flowers, and fennel stalks). They are a nice fleshy olive with a great buttery, fennel flavor.
