Amy’s Meatless Italian Sausage, Mushroom & Olive Pizza Review

Amy's Meatless Italian Sausage, Mushroom & Olive Pizza

We’ve really been in the mood for pizza lately. Thankfully, we stumbled upon Amy’s Meatless Italian Sausage, Mushroom and Olive Pizza while we were out grocery shopping. This definitely looks like something that would hit the spot!

We’ve tried Amy’s Kitchen pizzas before, and we’re almost always impressed. The Light in Sodium Spinach Pizza, for example, really surprised us by how high the quality was, even though it takes an axe to the sodium content. Our favorite pizza in Amy’s lineup thus far, however, is the Mushroom and Olive Pizza, which is a true classic. But the Meatless Italian Sausage, Mushroom and Olive Pizza looks like it could potentially blow the other pizzas out of the water.

According to the back of the box, there’s one Amy’s Kitchen fan who calls this the best pizza in the lineup. We’re not sure who this fan is, but we’re more than willing to put their words to the test and see if we find ourselves a new favorite Amy’s pizza.

So let’s get on with it!

This is not a microwavable pizza, but there are two sets of oven instructions on the box. One asks you to simply set the pizza directly on the rack of your oven, and the other requires a cookie sheet or similar pan. We went with the latter, because it’s supposed to result in a slightly softer crust.

The standout feature of this pizza is the meatless sausage. It’s not going to fool anyone into thinking it’s real sausage, because it’s too light and crispy and it crumbles far too easily. That said, it actually suits this pizza quite well. We have a suspicion that this is the same faux meat Amy’s uses in their breakfast sausage links, though we can’t say this with 100% certainty.

Of course, the sausage isn’t the only topping on this pizza. It also contains mushrooms and black olives, as the title suggests, as well as green onions. We were quite surprised at how generous the green onion portion is, because there are more green onions than black olives.

We love mushrooms, so we’re pleased to report that this pizza actually mostly smells of mushroom. You won’t find giant chunks of mushrooms here, but their presence does not go unnoticed. They sort of add a stealth mushroom flavor to the whole pizza, which we really love.

Like always, the crust is amazing. It’s crispy around the edges with a bit of softness in the center, and it tastes great. We’ve always loved Amy’s pizza crust, and this pizza isn’t going to change our minds.

This supposedly contains three servings, but we’re a bit confused about the logistics of cutting a pizza three ways. Should we cut into six slices so each person gets two? We suppose that works. If you decide to eat the whole pizza alone, be warned that that’s almost 1,000 calories, since each serving contains 330. While eating a full pizza seems like quite a commitment, it’s also a legitimate temptation because this is one of those pizzas that’s too darn good to share.

Amy’s Meatless Italian Sausage, Mushroom and Olive Pizza is fantastic. We’d still say we prefer the Mushroom and Olive Pizza to this one, but the meatless sausage version might be our new second favorite pizza from Amy’s Kitchen. If you like Amy’s pizzas, you owe it to yourself to try this one.
