Oh yes, and our selections are completely unbiased, unsponsored, and personally sampled, so you can bet these are foods we happily spend our own hard-earned money on …

Number 5: Clean Cravings Pesto Pizza

Wow, wow, wow! If you have ever proclaimed that pizza is not pizza without cheese, then it is time for you to eat your words. This amazing pizza was so wonderfully rich and flavorful that it left me feeling beyond fulfilled. And the real kicker: It is dairy-free, gluten-free, AND vegan!

Each of these personal-sized pizzas is topped with a generous layer of homemade dairy-free pesto, a couple handfuls of sliced mushrooms, and just enough pine nuts to add richness and flavor without going too over the top. Really, there isn’t much more I can say beyond the fact that these pizzas are simply delicious.

I will be petitioning Clean Cravings for more vegan and non-vegan pizza flavors, and also hope that as their demand increases they can up their distribution and lower their prices (don’t we all love lower prices?). In the mean time, you can order direct from Clean Cravings and enjoy take-and-bake GFCF pizza delivered right to your door by your friendly postal worker.
