Review: Amy’s Spinach Pizza (frozen)

Over the holiday weekend I popped one of Amy’s frozen pizzas (personal serving size) into my pre-heated oven. 10 to 12 minutes later, I was enjoying a truly excellent meal.

This variation is topped with spinach and feta cheese and contains only 440 calories. It wasn’t greasy and felt very lightweight.

Ingredients (according to the package)

  • Organic unbleached wheat flour with organic wheat bran
  • Filtered water
  • Organic tomato puree
  • Part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Organic spinach
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Feta cheese
  • Organic onions
  • Organic tofu
  • Honey
  • Sea salt
  • Organic garlic spices
  • Expeller pressed high oleic safflower and/or sunflower oil
  • Organic evaporated cane juice
  • Yeast
  • Black pepper

I am impressed with this ingredient listing. Totally natural and totally awesome in a pinch, especially if you don’t feel like prepping your own meal.

If you examine the rest of the Amy’s line, you’ll find that they don’t have anything with meat toppings. Other national brands providing organic & natural options place those products alongside their standard brands. Sometimes they toss commodity meats onto their natural food, which is a real shame. Amy’s side-steps that by only offering vegetarian, mostly-organic frozen pizza.
