I was first introduced to Udi’s several years ago by a friend who was looking at transitioning into a Gluten Free and other health conscious lifestyle changes. I hope that worked out for him and worked out for any of you who have felt it was time for something else, and a time to do something different. The results can be fruitful and beautiful, if you let it.
That goes for all of us.
Additionally, we don’t have to switch to Gluten Free or anything free to try Udi’s or any similar brand. Sampling different foods and different styles is what makes this world go round.
Their breads and bagels are just as on par in taste versus your regular style you will find anywhere. In a blind taste test you could taste a difference, but it’s not that significant. Good food is good food and eating healthy is a challenge, but only if we let it. This is supposed to be fun. Eating is one of the joys of life.
Before I completely digress, I had all the intentions of once again writing about a pie of the frozen kind. Let’s make it two.
Udi’s does pizza right, and once again their is no sacrifice in taste.
It’s funny how different grocery stores frozen pizza aisles will be so different versus the competition. Where you think you might find gluten free pizza, by anyone, might surprise you.
In the interest of keeping it simple, like they do, I went with a three cheese and then a pepperoni. Both are fantastic in their own little way. Yes the pizzas are little. And you know Gluten Free items are a bit higher on the price side. I believe these pizzas will run you for $7-$8 each.
The crust is perfectly thin and golden brown. I had to show you a picture with my pizza turned over so you get the idea. The way it cooked in the oven was so in sync with everything. I can’t explain it exactly. I mean it’s just putting a pie in the oven and voila, but there was something more diving going on here. It was in there for the right amount of time, and yes I read the instructions… But this felt so precise and in tune with the universe.
The olive oil, garlic, and basil just added so much in such a unpretentious fashion, that I had to savor every bite just a little more.
Oh and those pepperoni slices are divine, delicious, and delightful. I did that on purpose by the way. This is pizza, and even just food from another dimension. I must really like the letter ‘D’ today for some reason.
This isn’t going to fill you up as fast as your typical frozen fare, but that’s the point. It’s a lower calorie, lower fat, and welcomed alternative to what you might be used to. The frozen pizza choices out there are in abundance that some may get lost in the shuffle.
Don’t let Udi’s be one of them. This is world class and well done pizza. Make it a point, make it a priority, make it whatever you need to, to find their pizza. It’ll be worth whatever trip you need to take.
I will be taking this trip again.
Peace Be With You.
