American Flatbread - Vegan Harvest Pizza

When American Flatbread first came out with their Vegan Harvest pizza, I ran to the store to get one. As with most frozen foods, I tend to buy them with the best of intentions, but I only eat them when necessary. So, the pizza sat in my refrigerator for like a year. Then, one night, Zach and I felt like having a pizza night. So, I reluctantly opened the box of frozen pizza and threw it in the oven.

Boy, were we pleasantly surprised. The crust is a light, crispy flatbread topped with Daiya vegan mozzarella shreds with a mix of delicious herbs including parsley. It was much better than the picture on the front of the box would have you think it is.

As for the ingredients, they are simple and mostly organic, that is, except for the Daiya vegan cheese. All that is on the crust is organic tomato sauce, Daiya, organic parsley, herbs, and salt! The crust is made of organically grown hard red wheat, good mountain water (not sure what this is), sea salt, and fresh yeast.  No preservatives or GMOs!  Simple and delicious.

Part of the reason it tastes so good is that it is cooked in a "primitive wood-fired earthen oven." I think this gives the crust its crunchiness.  And, I must give credit to the company for putting "vegan" on the front of the box. Major kudos to them. Next, on my list is to try their new vegan Sundried Tomato and Mushroom!
