Amy's Roasted Vegetable Pizza to the rescue! We keep a couple of these in the freezer, stocking up when on special. Pair this vegan pizza with a big crisp salad, maybe tossing some nuts, seeds, or beans into the salad for extra protein, and you have dinner, pronto!
The pizza itself is tasty. However, I always jazz it up with extra toppings. Below is the pizza in its out-of-the box state:
Not too bad for toppings. Actually, this was one of the better ones I've bought. But for our house, it needs more toppings! I always have jars of roasted red peppers and artichokes in my pantry. I simply drain a few of each, slice/chop, and distribute them on the pizza, along with some pitted kalamata olives. This is the "after" shot:
The sauce base of this pizza is not your traditional tomato sauce. Instead, it is a thin layer of caramelized onions blended with shiitake mushrooms. It is a VERY tasty base - I think even those of you not partial to mushrooms and onions would like it, the onions are cooked down and sweet and there are no large pieces of either mushrooms or onions.
My only criticism of this pizza is that it has a white-flour crust. I wish Amy's would produce this pizza with a whole-wheat crust, as well as offer more vegan pizzas in their product line. But, for the occasional rushed meal, it is tasty and saves the day! For a full listing of Amy's vegan product offerings, click here.
