We try to have a weekly pizza night at our house. My daughter loves creating her own pizza! Sometimes we order the amazing vegan pizza from Mellow Mushroom, but most of the time we like to make our own. Each time I go to the grocery store I am constantly amazed at all of the new plant based products hitting the shelves. Vegan options are in high demand, and it is very exciting to see. I love creating vegan pizza recipes, and this time I decided to try some new products.
The toppings you use on your pizza can make or break the recipe, but I believe the right crust makes all the difference. I have used several different kinds of crusts in my recipes, but when I stumbled upon this product at Whole Foods, I had no idea it would end up being my preferred crust for future pizzas.
Years ago when I first became vegan I was devouring documentaries and watching as many as I could. I remember watching the Forks Over Knives Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue with Rip Esselstyn, so I was super excited to see this Engine 2 pizza crust!
Rip is the Engine 2 founder. He is also a former firefighter, premier triathlete, and All-American swimmer. When he was with the Austin Fire Department, he introduced the whole foods plant based diet and helped rescue a firefighting brother's health. This birthed the best selling book, The Engine 2 Diet. In 2009 Rip teamed up with Whole Foods Market as one of their Healthy Eating Partners and continues to raise awareness about the benefits of a whole foods plant base diet through books, speaking engagements, podcasts, a phenomenal food line, and so much more.
The pizza crust is excellent! It delivers the pizzeria taste with plant based, non-GMO ingredients.
Saucy, spicy, meaty, cheesy, and only seven ingredients.
