Last night I had a treat: a preview taste of Amy’s Rice Crust Spinach Pizza (scroll to the bottom of the linked page for ingredients and nutritional information).
When I was vegetarian (not so long ago), I used to eat Amy’s Rice Crust Cheese Pizza, so the crust was already familiar to me. But those of you who haven’t had a reason to avoid gluten might find it a little crunchy. Never fear, though—it still tastes good.
And so does the pizza. The cheeze (soy-based mozzarella and ricotta) didn’t really melt—no surprise there. But that’s about the worst I can say about the pie—and honestly, if it doesn’t affect the taste (which it doesn’t), I couldn’t care less. The sauce was seasoned just right, and the spinach, a kind of pesto-ish paste, added a little something extra. If only I hadn’t overcooked it just a tad (damned toaster oven!), it would have been perfect. My shaky cooking skills notwithstanding, the pie was delish.
Amy’s Rice Crust Spinach Pizza will be in stores later this month. Also vegan and due out soon are Amy’s Baked Ziti Bowl (also wheat-free!), Indian Spinach Tofu Wrap, and Vegetarian Breakfast Patties.
