Annies Pizza~Review

by adustyframe ~ April 5th, 2012

I was given the opportunity to review Annie’s Homegrown Organic Rising Crust Pizza. We eat frozen pizza now and then so I was excited to hear that Annie’s is producing a healthier pizza. We have used items from the Annie’s brand in the past–mostly the crackers and mac and cheese so I didn’t mind trying this item.

*Did you know Annie’s has a total of 125 all natural or organic products? (I didn’t know that.) They never use GMOs, synthetic flavors or colors, preservaties, or high fructose corn syrup.

Annie’s Organic Rising Crust Pizza is only available at Whole Foods right now. The suggested retail value is $9.99 for the 11 1/2″ pizza (although the Whole Foods I went to priced it at $10.99.)

Annie’s offers the following flavors:

Organic Spinach & Mushroom Pizza

Organic Supreme Pizza

Organic Cheese Pizza

Organic Pepperoni Pizza

Here’s a description from their site~

  • Certified Organic
  • Naturally rising crust, 8g whole grains per serving
  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • 100% real cheese, made with milk from cows not treated with the growth hormone rBST*
  • Pepperoni with no nitrates or nitrites added except for naturally occurring nitrates in sea salt and celery juice powder
  • Good source of calcium & protein

We tried the nitrate free pepperoni pizza. The directions on the box are very easy to follow and the pizza smells wonderful while baking. I imagine that was the rising crust–it smelled like homemade bread! MMMMM.

The pizza was good and I felt good about serving my son quality ingredients. James liked the flavor of the pizza. We both felt it definitely could have used some more cheese, but that could just be our bad habits talking (yikes!).

For our family one pizza was enough–I rarely eat bread items so we can stretch a pizza  bit further. If you have more children or hungry men you will probably want more than one pizza.

Will we try this again? Maybe–I have no issues with the taste or the ingredients. The only drawbacks for me is the price and the fact that we don’t have a Whole Foods very close to us–although I LOVED my first visit to a Whole Foods in order to find this pizza.

    I eat their gluten free mac and cheese. It’s the best I’ve had. I do add extra cheese though. It’s not very cheesy. Havn’t tried any of their other products. Will have to look more.
