Am I dreaming or did somebody say readymade vegan pizza?
One Planet Pizza is the UK’s first frozen vegan pizza company and is owned entirely by the community. The pizzas are handmade in East Anglia using locally sourced organic ingredients and Bute Island Foods dairy-free cheese; Sheese. As I couldn’t resist giving the brand a try, read on to find out what I thought and where you can buy one!
Mediterranean Roasted Vegetable Pizza
Brand: One Planet Pizza
For: Vegans Who Love Pizza!

A vegan pizza wouldn’t be complete without a delicious dairy-free ‘cheese’ alternative. The cheese or should I say Sheese is sourced from the wonderful Bute Island Foods. They are committed to using sustainably sourced and cruelty-free ingredients including palm oil to ensure maximum quality. The White Cheddar Style Sheese itself not only looks like ordinary cheese but sure tastes like it too! From the texture to the way that it melts atop the ingredients, they sure have sussed out creating THE best dairy-free alternative.
Unlike ordinary pizza brands, One Planet Pizza are generous with their toppings. The Roasted Vegetable variety was packed with olives, courgette, aubergine, red onion and yellow peppers. The vegetables were delicious and complimented each other perfectly, particularly the olives that set the mediterranean tone.
The pizza base is made from organic white and wholemeal flour with added chia and flax seeds for an Omega 3 boost. The organic rich tomato sauce complimented the base perfectly, marrying the Mediterranean flavours of the toppings. The base and crust was crunchy and light, unlike many wholemeal bases that you may traditionally sample.
