Daiya Pizza vs. Tofurky Pizza

I just haven’t been able to get my Vida Vegan Con post together yet, so instead I give you a quick vegan pizza post. I was planning on getting that post written up yesterday, and was just sitting down to do so, when I got a call from Portland. It was the cab company with whom we had ridden last weekend, and in which Thomas accidentally left his phone. Apparently the phone he had reported stolen & gotten blacklisted was finally turned in, so we actually jumped in the car and drove back down to Portland for the night. But I digress.

When we got back today, we spent most of the afternoon having an impromptu goth dance party (just the two of us) in our apartment while the cats enjoyed the sunshine and looked on.

Somewhere in there I decided to raid the freezer for pizza, and we decided a pizza show down was in order. In case you were wondering who won in our taste test…

The Tofurky was the clear winner due to the Daiya’s technical difficulties in the crust department. It came cracked in several pieces, so we had to bake it on some foil, and it ended up having a soggy texture. The flavor of the roasted vegetables was pretty delicious though, so I think we may have to have a rematch for fairness. The only thing I don’t like about Tofurky’s pizzas is that they don’t give you enough crust. We do love their pepperoni, though.

This inconclusive taste test has been brought to you by Ty & Thomas. And here’s a picture of us at the White Owl in Portland yesterday, just because…

American Flatbread Pizza – Vegan Harvest

Published February 11, 2012 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

Thomas noticed this pizza eyeing us from the freezer section the last time we were at Whole Foods, so I grabbed two boxes to try.

I must say, after a lot of searching, I have finally found my favorite vegan frozen pizza!

I’m not sure how long they’ve been making the vegan harvest, because it’s made with delicious Daiya goodness, but I hope they always continue to do so! The name is a litle deceiving, because the “harvest” part makes me think it should have a bunch of veggies on top. However, the “flatbread” part translates to a thin, wood fired earthen oven baked, perfect crust, that actually has a crust all the way around! Big points for that too, as I hate frozen pizzas without a border (I’m looking at you Tofurky!) . Not only that, but it doesn’t taste like a plain ole cheese frozen pizza. It’s got a lovely garlic thing going on too.

This is my new, cheaper answer to ordering delivery. Which is really important for me, because as much as I crave raw foods from my green smoothie drinking, the backlash is that I also crave pizza! ; )

Right now you can get a $1 off coupon from their website too that’s valid through 2012, so print away! I would love to see an additional vegan option with some of the gourmet toppings they have on their cheese pizzas like caramelized onions and sun dried tomatoes. For now I’m thrilled about this new find.

Have you tried it? What did you think? What’s your favorite frozen vegan pizza?

Whole Foods 365 Vegan Gluten-Free Rice Crust Pizza

Published May 24, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

So here is my follow up to my review of their whole wheat crust version.  This was surprisingly great! Not only was the crust delicious, but the toppings were plentiful! Same great sauce and veggies as the whole wheat one. I’m not the gluten-free type, but I think I may have liked this just as much, if not better than the whole wheat one. I topped it with nutritional yeast, oregano, crushed red peppers and a handful of Daiya mozzarella before baking.

SO GOOD! And a wonderful, quick lunch.

PS – I bake for 10 minutes, at 425* on my toaster oven’s convection setting.

Whole Foods 365 Frozen Vegan Pizza

Published May 12, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

So here is the third of my reviews of new vegan frozen options. These little personal pizzas are Whole Foods’ 365 house label’s new offerings. They are well priced, and come in whole wheat or gluten free rice crust. No fake cheese here, which may be a plus for some, no soy, and the only allergen in this one is wheat.

The toppings were not really very plentiful. (EDIT: to be fair, the second one I bought had WAY more toppings! this is probably not the norm!!!)

I decided to sprinkle on a little nutritional yeast and a generous amount of Daiya mozzarella before cooking.


The results were really good! I liked the crust, the sauce was tasty, and the veggies were a good combination (although they could have used more!).


Tofurky Frozen Pizzas, Pepperoni & Sausage, a review

Published May 6, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

I was so excited to take this one for a test drive, especially since I read the back of the box and found out they’re using Daiya cheese.

The back of the box also proudly boasts that this is the 1st frozen vegan pepperoni pizza available. The thing you have probably already noticed is the pepperoni not sliced as you would expect, but instead cut into plentiful tiny cubes.  No problem there, but they didn’t really leave any crust, and I am definitely into crust, so I was a little dissapointed.

The baked result was good, and the pepperoni was really tasty. It was also good cold, the next day! My main complaint is that it’s the typical sucky thin crust common to most cheap conventinal frozen pizzas. With an $8 price tag though, I probably won’t be buying this again. I’ll just throw some Yve’s sliced pepperoni on a [Daiya] cheesier pizza if I get the urge.

I had also purchased their Italian Sausage and roasted vegetable pizza. This one was actually really delicious. Same thin crust, obviously, but the combination of veggies was really good, and it was cheesier.

I ate about 2/3 of the pizza before I noticed a hair sticking out of part of it. That’s right. A hair that looked nothing like mine. So I ended up dumping out that last portion by where I found it. Too bad, I hate to waste yummy food. :/

So yah, that, along with the too thin crust, and $8 price tag, will probably dissuade me from purchasing again. I thought I’d give them a try though. I like their other products like italian sausage, bratts, and pre-seasoned tempeh.

Anyone else try these? or the cheese one?
