The Lazy Vegan: Whole Foods take and bake pizza March 22, 2009

Filed under: Food Talk,Reviews — veganshane @ 1:08 pm


A couple of weeks ago I had a My Space bulletin from Teese by Chicago Soy Dairy announcing that Whole Foods would be having a vegan pizza in the deli made with Teese mozzarella and Upton Naturals seitan italian sausage, and Minnesota Whole Foods would be among the stores stocking the new deli item.  We assumed that we would only see it at the Minneapolis store that gets most of the vegan product love. However we had a surprise  at the end our weekly grocery run.   The pizza was in the deli case,  just asking for a good home.

To start off the price point was $11.99 a little expensive but less than other  vegan pizza options for its size.  We baked it on our pizza stone the crust bubbled nicely, sadly like much of whole foods deli items it was lacking in the flavor department, as was the sauce. The cheese and the sausage were good but we were hoping for a bit more zing out of the sausage, on the whole it was a good pizza, but it did not blow us away.  It was the perfect cold pizza for breakfast pizza, the Teese took on the same consistancy and flavor of my favorite dive pizza joint from my pre-vegan days Pagliai’s in Mankato, MN (who will by the way make you vegan stuff on request).
