Daiya Vegetable Crust Frozen Pizzas are a New Plant-Based Convenience

Each gluten-free vegetable crust is subtly infused with cauliflower, sweet potato, and spinach. It bakes up crispy, lightly crunchy, and quite flavorful. The crust is covered with Daiya’s “authentic tomato sauce,” which is made simply with tomatoes, olive oil, herbs, and spices. And each pizza is generously sprinkled with Daiya dairy-free mozzarella, parmesan, and/or feta alternative. Yes, plant-based parmesan and feta!

Italian Herbs & Cheeze-Style

This is Daiya’s version of pizza margherita … without dairy cheese or a wheat crust. It’s topped with their mozzarella-style and Parmesan-style cutting board shreds, feta-style crumbles, and Italian herbs.

Depends on the style

I bought a couple of Daiya pizzas on sale to give them a try. The first one I baked was one of the vegetable crust types (can’t remember which), It was terrible. The crust was mealy, and tasteless. The vegetables had no spice. Bad experience. A week or so later I decided to bake the other pizza – a meatless pepperoni style. The difference was day and night. No cardboard crust; it was crispy and tasty. And the toppings were genuinely flavorful.

Crunchy, tasty crust with lots of flavors and melty cheese made me want to go buy another one.

Pizzas are ok in a pinch or when the need comes up for a bite.

These pizzas aren’t just like traditional, but we’ve become addicted to them as a quick, flavorful meal. The crust really crisps up to a crunchy texture and has a nice flavor – no “off” tastes like a lot of gluten-free baked goods. The pepperoni is our favorite – those little slices are tasty and the pizza has a nice spice. The sauce is also wonderful. We do toss on more toppings when we have them on hand because these pizzas are heavy on dairy-free cheese. We like Daiya’s cutting board shreds in moderation, but they can overwhelm a bit. Again, these aren’t traditional cheese pizzas, but pretty darn good in their own right.
