At least a year ago, Turtle Island Foods sent me a coupon in the mail for a free Tofurky pizza! They wanted me to review their new Daiya-covered frozen pizzas on my blog. And I was more than willing to do so. I rushed to Whole Foods when my coupon arrived, but sadly, the freezer section guy informed me that our store didn't carry the pizza yet.
So every single time I've visited Whole Foods between now and then (and that's at least once every two weeks), I've strolled through the frozen section just hoping against hope that my precious vegan pizza would be on the shelf.
Then one day about a week ago, my friend Richard posted this photo on Facebook of a freezer case full of Tofurky pizzas at our Whole Foods. He tagged me in one of the boxes, so I'd be sure to see it:
Thankfully, I'd held on to that coupon all this time. When I got to Whole Foods, I had a choice to make — Vegan Cheese, Pepperoni, or Italian Sausage & Fire-Roasted Veggie. The choice was obvious though. I love Tofurky's sausages, and fire-roasted veggies are the best! Victory!
One night over the weekend, I had a hankerin' for pizza and no time to cook a proper dinner, so I baked this little pizza and cut up a side salad:
Look at the little fire-roasted marks on that tiny tomato! I liked how the veggies and the sausage were diced very small, and even though it wasn't loaded with Daiya, there was enough to make it cheesy. I'll bet the cheese flavor has more Daiya. That's next on my list.
While you can't beat a homemade pizza (or better yet, a giant Mega-Veggie Pizza with Daiya from Mellow Mushroom), these little frozen pizzas are perfect for those nights when you're just too busy to cook. Plus, they bring me back to my pregan, college days when I lived on cheapo frozen pizzas, mac & cheese, and ramen.
