BOLD Organics Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Frozen Pizza

By | Jan 19, 2012

I am not a frozen food connoisseur. That honor I reserve for my boyfriend, who has spent the last 5 of his 28 years exploring options in the freezer section. Naturally, when the time came to test out BOLD Organics gluten-free and dairy-free pizza, he was a wiling subject.

BOLD Organics just joined NFCA’s GREAT Business Association, and they sent a few samples so we could get to know their gluten-free products. The pizza is available in four types: Vegan Cheese, Vegetarian, Meat Lovers and Deluxe – all gluten-free, dairy-free and individually boxed, with 2 servings per pie. Knowing that my boyfriend thinks a day isn’t complete until he’s had meat, I reached for the Deluxe, which is topped with sausage, pepperoni, and (thankfully) vegetables.

The pizza was easy to prepare. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, place pizza directly on oven rack, and bake for about 20 minutes. A quick broil to crisp up the top, and you’re ready to eat.

When the pizza was cooked, the vegetables looked a little soggy. A result of the frozen veggies thawing directly on top of the pizza, and an outcome that befalls many frozen entrees. I feared that the pizza crust suffered the same fate, but not the case. In fact, the crust was quite good: crispy on the bottom, with a slighly doughy bite. No chemical aftertaste, either. The meat was tasty with a nice amount of salt, though my boyfriend said he would have preferred a more rustic cut of sausage, instead of the mini meatball shapes.

Most surprising was the sauce. It was sweet and tomato-y, but with a knock of spice – the kind that sneaks in between the corners of your mouth. I wouldn’t recommend this if you have a sensitive palate, but it’s a great addition that sets the pizza apart.

As for the dairy-free cheese, I had no qualms with it, but my boyfriend could tell that it didn’t melt the same way as a traditional mozzarella. Even with that criticism, he gave the pizza a thumbs up, plus bonus points for the tasty crust.

    Can I ask area of the country you would find that in? I’m in central Illinois and I’m having a heck of a time finding enough organic frozen pizzas to review for my show.

    Hi Eric. It doesn’t appear to be available in your area yet, but you may want to contact the company directly to see if they can ship you a special order.
