When we heard the buzz about the Wedge & Linden Hills crafting some frozen, organic pizza dough, we were excited. But, when we found out the Wedge and Linden Hills are crafting a ready-to-bake, organic pizza crust, I have to admit, I was out of my chair with car keys in hand and my snow boots on. I drove into the big city to the Wedge Co-op to get my pizza on!! I am in my sixties and still working full time, so the idea of the ready-to-bake crust is right up my alley! Simple, healthy convenience is pretty important in our household. I am a flexitarian eater and my fave-fellow (my husband Jimmy) is definitely an omnivore. We do a pretty good job of meal prep together: when he grills his slab of organic meat, I prepare a salad with a veggie, rice, quinoa, and/or bulgar... and then we get out the Salad Girl for a drizzle.
When we heard the Wedge had a ready-to-bake organic pizza crust, I decided to purchase one and share it with my honey 50/50. I designed a vegan side and an omnivore side, both made with homemade pesto and then separate ingredients. After we baked the pizza and my husband saw the yummy caramelized onions with Medjool dates, he invaded my side of the crust. He dug in and even applauded the flavor of the Upton Naturals Italian Vegan Seitan (a sausage-like plant-based protein). I got a kick out of that. He could not tell the difference at all. Hello, Upton Naturals, my new friend:-). Enjoy the art and the taste of compromise!
