We were excited to see the new Daiya frozen pizzas at our local Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago. We’ve enjoyed their cheese shreds and wedges for some time and were thrilled to hear about new products hitting the shelves.
Until now, we’ve been making pizza from scratch using Pillsbury pizza crust dough, tomato sauce and Daiya shreds. It tasted great, but was time consuming.
The new Daiya pizzas come in four flavors:
- Cheeze Lover’s
- Fire-Roasted Vegetable
- Mushroom & Roasted Garlic
They are free of the top 8 allergens – that means free of the common problem-ingredients for families with food allergies such as wheat, soy, eggs and milk.
We’ve tried both the basic cheese (twice) and the mushroom & garlic pizzas. Both have turned out pretty well and my daughter and other taste-testers have enjoyed them.
The trickiest part is trying to get it cooked just right. The instructions say to preheat the oven AND the baking sheet at 500 degrees. Obviously it needs to get really hot. But 2 of the 3 times I’ve made them the edges have burnt pretty badly (even when I pull it out early) and I’ve had to cut them off. I’m not sure if it’s the temp or the time that needs adjusting (or both) but it’s worth the effort to figure it out.
Avery really likes the cheese one quite a bit. We’ll definitely be buying them regularly.
