Good News for Vegans and Gluten-phobes: Amy’s Vegan Rice Crust Spinach Pizza

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.

    Amy’s has about the best line of prepared foods around, and my main complaint – with them or anyone – is that their soy cheese is usually not vegan (contains casein). In fact, when I first read this entry, I went to the Amy’s site and read the ingredients for a pie that isn’t vegan. “Oh, no! No casein!” I wrote to Roseann. Fortunately, I was looking at the wrong ingredients list; I’m actually looking forward to trying this pizza.

    With New York being the veritable vegan’s playground that it is, I’m just surprised more people aren’t more enlightened. Few people seem to understand that dairy is toxic, and many of those who do understand eat dairy products anyway. (“I can’t be a vegan; I like to go out with my friends.”) This society is doomed.

    Okay, I am having this pizza now. It’s excellent, friends; I only wish a) it were less expensive and b) I hadn’t dropped it on the floor!

    Sadly enough, when I was transferring it to the broiler (after having baked it to perfection) I dropped it on the floor. I scooped it up and salvaged what I could; in spite of the accident, it was a very enjoyable, crave-worthy pie. Also, I liked the crust better than a traditional wheat crust.

    That said, Amy’s pizza is going to be a rare treat; at $8.29 and over 1,000 calories, I’m not sure I’m going to want to pony up the money too often.

    I’m looking forward to trying this. I really like their Roasted Vegetable Pizza. (It is too much to eat in one sitting, but I just save half and heat it up later.)
