More Allergen Notes

According to the company, they produce their products in a dedicated gluten-free facility. However, they do make several other pizzas with dairy cheese. So we presume there is dairy present in the facility, and possibly used on the same equipment. As always, inquire if you are concerned about potential cross contamination.

buy the crusts, make your own

I’ve only tried the crusts not the ready to make pizzas others complain about. The crust is fantastic, the texture is nothing like other GF crusts and reminds me of the chewier thicker crusts I enjoyed in my gluten eating days.

Wish I could give 0 stars. One bite and I threw the entire thing in the garbage. ‘meat’ pieces were hard and awful tasting. I followed the cooking instructions and the crust was way over done while the rest of the pizza was barely cooked. I have no idea how this received one positive review, let alone multiple

I had low expectations having had other gluten free vegan pizzas and this way exceeded my expectations. The crust was similar to that of a gluten crust. Chewy yet crisp. The beyond crumbles are well spiced. Would absolutely buy it again

Hard Fake Meat

The meat was so hard and the cheese would not even melt in the oven. The overall taste is very bland and just not good at all.

I’ve tried a lot of different Gluten free pizzas with Califlower crust and this one actually tastes like real crust. The toppings are good too and the cheese doesn’t stick to my teeth.

Bland tasting pizza with inedible extremely hard little tan bits throughout. Grossed out so much I had to throw it away! Daiya is a better choice

Bought two pies at a discount grocery outlet, 5.99 a pop. can’t imagine how much they were discounted for. The roasted veggie one was dry bread with a teaspoon of bland cheese and a cup of veggies. Should’ve been worth 3.50 tops in separate ingredients. The margarita pie was a total mind f***, as it not only tasted bland in the crust and sauce, but the cheese was foul. I don’t know if the two pies we bought were miskept in shipping or what but afterward I felt queasy and sick. Even so, an 8-inch pie is not worth 5.99. I expected a “meh” frozen pizza, but holy crap I don’t know what I just ate.

I paid $9.50 and it wasn’t worth the price tag. Gluten free crust was just ok. There was almost no cheese on it and the Beyond Meat crumbles were hard and dry, with the texture of kibble. The best thing was the roasted veggies, but as with most pizzas it was mostly bell peppers, although they list a host of other veggies.

This is one of those products that you are crazy not to choose over any regular/non-vegan pizza. It 1000% doesn’t taste vegan, is nutritious and DELICIOUS. Savory AF. Guilt free in every category.

Tastes like Totino’s

If you like Totino‘s frozen pizzas, then this pizza is for you! Otherwise I would avoid it. It is a flavorless, boring pizza crust topped with terrible tasting “meat and cheese.” The tomato sauce base is nondescript as well. I’m better off making my own pizza. It costs less and tastes better!
