Product Review: Tofurky Pepperoni Pizza
Last night, I tried one of three frozen vegan pizzas offered by Tofurky, powered by Daiya. The pepperoni is in the Totino's Party Pizza style that I remember growing up: diced up pieces of pepperoni. The crust is thin and crisps easily. The cheese: not nearly enough -- we added some of our own Daiya cheddar to the pizza.
The other two varieties offered are Cheese and Sausage. I am really interested in getting a cheese and adding my own "meat" toppings, such as the regular pepperoni slices from Yves or some Gimme Lean sausage.
It's expensive (I believe $8.99 USD at my local Whole Foods) for a frozen pizza, BUT given that a mock duck/rinotta (or soy cheese - Follow Your Heart brand) medium pizza costs $16-17 USD to get delivered, it's comparable and still really tasty. I mean, we're coming along when I can go buy a frozen vegan pizza at a store not 50+ miles or mail ordered to me.
