This past weekend my wife and I tried Amy’s Kitchen Roasted Vegetable Pizza, a no cholesterol, cheeseless, vegan pizza using a number of organic ingredients. We were both very pleased with the pizza: the crust was tasty and the onions, artichokes, roasted red peppers, shiitake mushrooms, and garlic made for a very unique flavor. It definitely didn’t taste like something from the freezer section.
However, I came across an interesting fact online: Amy’s “No Cheese” Pizza (which seems to have been renamed as the Roasted Vegetable Pizza) was marketed as vegan but contained honey. It appears that the company was responsive, though. A quick look at the Roasted Vegetable Pizza confirms that it is indeed vegan, with no honey. However, their Soy Cheeze Pizza contains milk derivatives and their non-dairy pot pie contains honey. Perhaps if enough people contacted them, they would consider veganizing these products as well.
Amy’s web site does a great job pointing out which products are and aren’t vegan and now defines vegan as “products [that] contain no dairy or honey.
