We found it in the freezer section at our local Whole Foods Market: Bold Organics Frozen pizza that is gluten free, dairy free, egg free and nut free! It met all of our food allergen free requirements. Even though my children can eat gluten, I become the Michelin man of bloating if I eat too much gluten. We are perpetually on the hunt for dairy, nut and sesame seed free “fast foods” that can be picked up by well meaning friends wanting to provide safe food options for my son. Alas, a winner was discovered with Bold Organics Frozen Pizzas.
My son liked it so much that even though he promised to share with his sister, but he ate the whole pizza sans one tiny slicer for Mom. That says it all right there. I was happy with this choice for a few reasons:
- The pizza is organic! We try to buy organic as much as possible.
- The company was started by Aaron Greenwald, who took a year off of college to start Bold Organics after taking an Entrepreneur class!
- Aaron stated this business to meet his own needs of feeling better when he eat gluten and dairy free.
- Bold Organics took it steps farther and are also nut, egg and sesame seed free (of course, if you try this pizza, double check and call Bold up to make sure there have been no recipe changes).
- My son has a nice last minute choice when heading to a friend’s house for dinner.
- The crust was thin…my favorite, there was enough non-dairy cheese to provide that yummy goodness for my teeth to sink in to with each bite.
- It tasted great!!
The pizza was not cheap, so eating this weekly is not going to happen around here, but as a treat or again, to keep my children safe at a friend’s house, it is worth every penny. The pizzas were small, so I would pick one up per person. We tried the Meat Lovers Pizza only and have the Veggie variety next on our list.
Kudos to Aaron Greenwald for taking his entrepreneurial spirit out for a spin in solving a few culinary challenges for our food allergy community.
p.s. Bold Organics hasn’t a clue that I’m writing about them today. They did send me a coupon for a free pizza to try out their product. I welcome products to sample with hopes of sharing our findings with our food allergy community. Again, what I like in a product may be the thing that sends you running and what you love might be the reason I don’t enjoy that product. By sharing well all learn about new products to improve our lives with food allergies.
