Product Review: BOLD Organics

17th August 2012

Due to the increasing awareness of Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity, BOLD Organics developed a line of GLUTEN-FREE and DAIRY-FREE frozen pizzas. They are gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, casein-free, peanut and tree nut-free, non-GMO verified, free of preservatives, and “Made with Organic” certified. As of Summer 2012, BOLD Organics currently makes two vegan pizzas: Vegan Cheese Pizza (simple cheese pizza or top your own pizza with your favourite ingredients) and Veggie Lovers Pizza (with shiitake mushrooms, carmelized onion and roasted bell pepper).

BOLD OrganicsVegan Cheese Pizza is gluten-free and vegan. I love the fact that it is gluten-free, but it contains soy due to Vegan Gourmet Mozzarella Cheese Alternative. I followed the Convection Oven instructions: Preheat to 425 degrees F, bake for 20 minutes on pizza screens on the top rack. Rotate pizza and broil for 2 minutes due to the vegan cheese. Leave it out for few minutes to cool down. This vegan cheese pizza is a quick meal to go, where you can top your favourite veggies, faux meat or even hot sauce for heat. I like my vegan pizza with diced roma tomatoes, pepperoncini, and loads of red onions. The pizza crust was thick, but soft, it felt like eating a yummy pizza bread, which I liked. The crust is not too hard, but easy to eat off.

BOLD OrganicsVegan Veggie Lovers Pizza is gluten-free and vegan, but contains soy. The toppings for this same vegan cheese pizza (as reviewed above) were good selections: organic roasted red peppers, organic roasted yellow onions and shiitake mushrooms. After cooking it in convection oven, I could only taste the red peppers, not so much from the shiitake mushrooms with bit of garlic and salt. I would probably suggest adding more veggies or herbs for extra flavour or get the vegan cheese pizza with your preferred toppings, that way you don’t feel limited with these selections. I usually like my shiitake mushrooms flavoured. BOLD Organics vegan pizzas do have delicious gluten-free crusts! That’s something I would love to have around. NO GLUTEN, MILK, LACTOSE, CASEIN, WHEY, EGG, PEANUT, OR TREENUT.

AS A SIDE NOTE, they are perfect for leftovers for the next day. Just broil them again at 450 degrees F and let them cook for 5 minutes, and you will have a crunchy, warm vegan pizza to go! I love leftover pizzas!
