MOFO - Day 26 - Product Review - Tofurkey Frozen Pizzas


The past couple of days have been jam packed full as I am sure they have been for everyone. I did not have even an hour to whip something up today, so I am going to do a product review of the new Tofurkey Pizza's. I bought 3 varieties and we have tried two of them so far: the cheese and the roasted vegetable. While I much rather make my own pizza's, these work pretty nicely in a pinch. I fed these to my mom and sister who are not vegetarian. Fred and I also tried them. While we all thought they were pretty tasty, my omnis didn't really think the cheese was very close to the real deal. I have to admit, on a cheese only pizza, Daiya is not nearly amazing as it is when it is used as more of an accent than a main attraction. We all very much liked the roasted veggie pizza. The veggies are chopped very small, I'd love to see them a bit larger so they are more distinctive. The sauce is a bit bland, but sprinkle of oregano and crushed red pepper livens it up quite a bit. We all agreed we'd eat the roasted veggie one again.


The cheese variety would need some doctoring to make it to the plate. All in all, I think these are a fine fall back when life gets really busy. It's nice to have a good vegan option in a frozen pizza. Tofurkey brand is the best vegan frozen pizza I've tried yet. I'll be keeping at least one on hand for those busy days.

Oh and so I don't stray from the chile theme, we topped half of the cheese pizza with jalapenos. Yum!

I just know those jalapenos helped! You're so right about daiya being better as a supporting character than the star.

I couldn't agree more! I liked the cheese better than the roasted veggie though, that's the only difference! I haven't tried the pepperoni one yet either.

Hey! I've been waiting forever for those!! I keep stalking the pizza aisle at Sprouts and Whole Foods looking for them. Where did you find them??? I bet Sunflower because that is the only place I really don't shop. Next stop, Tofurky Pizza!

I got it at the WF in Tempe. They didn't have it out in the case, but I asked one of the employees if they had it and he brought it out. He said that the would have it out in the freezer soon.

That 'splains it because I was just there on Thursday and looked. Yay! Soon!
