Sweet Earth Enlightened Foods launches first line of frozen pizza
Sweet Earth Enlightened Foods, Moss Landing, Calif., launched a new line of frozen pizzas.
The pizzas boast unique crusts blended with ancient grains, carrot and rosemary, bold sauces and fresh toppings. Each pizza delivers at least 5 grams of fiber per serving, or 20% of the recommended daily value, thanks to ingredients like quinoa, flax seed and chia seed.
The Veggie Lover’s pizza is vegan, featuring a cornmeal, carrot and chia crust, and is said to be the first-ever frozen pizza topped with Brussels sprouts.
The Protein Lover’s kind contains 16 grams of protein per serving and is topped with smoked mozzarella, zesty marinara sauce and Planet Pepperoni, Sweet Earth Foods’ plant-based version.
The mushroom-loaded Truffle Lover’s pizza comes includes caramelized onions, truffle oil and Gruyère cheese.
The Herb Lover’s variety boasts five premium cheeses, along with a lemony herb pesto sauce and aromatic rosemary crust.
“We believe food should be delicious, but it should also make you feel good past the moment you’re eating it,” says Kelly Swette, chief executive officer. “Our new pizzas are chock-full of fresh ingredients that provide exceptional taste and nutrition, with the convenience that comes in the freezer aisle. We’re making healthy and sustainable food accessible to everyone, just like it should be.”
“Plant-based eating is good for the planet and good for you,” says Brian Swette, president. “Sustainability is at the core of everything we do, beginning with the ingredients we use. Our customers are looking to add more vegetables and plant-based protein to their diet, and we are continuing to serve and empower them with our new line of frozen pizzas.”
The new pizza line is available at retails such as Target, Kroger, Safeway, Harris Teeter, Publx, Raley’s and Walmart nationwide for a suggested retail price of $6.99-7.99.
