Sweet Earth Veggie Lover’s Pizza (New Improved Recipe) Review

Sweet Earth Veggie Lover's Pizza (New Improved Recipe)

In a world where nothing ever changes, it wouldn’t make sense to re-review old frozen food items. But this isn’t a world where nothing ever changes. Recipes change. Marketing changes. Heck, even our opinions evolve and shift over time.

So for us here at Freezer Meal Frenzy, it just makes sense to revisit foods we’ve already reviewed in the past. For example, the Sweet Earth Veggie Lover’s Pizza, which we’re reviewing today, has gone through some changes.

We’ll go over those changes in a minute, but first, let’s talk about cooking. To heat this pizza, simply preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, then put the pizza in for 19 or 20 minutes. The instructions say to place the pizza directly on the oven rack, but we always put ours on a baking sheet. (You can read the cooking instructions straight off the box by checking out our package scans at the bottom of this frozen food review.)

The previous version of this pizza was absolutely covered with corn and broccoli, with some mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and Brussels sprouts thrown in for good measure. The new version cut the corn and bulked up the Brussels sprouts. The Brussels sprouts chunks here seems bigger and more frequent. We do miss the corn a bit, though.

One thing that we’re not quite sure about is the vegan-friendly cheese substitute. We remember it being stretchier and meltier. This stuff feels pretty cheap, and it’s certainly no substitute for cheese if you’re used to eating the real stuff (especially if you’ve eaten a lot of Lotzza Motzza pizzas like we have). Thankfully, there’s not a whole lot of it here, so it doesn’t really get in the way (this might be the first time we’ve actually been happy that a pizza doesn’t have enough cheese).

The sauce here is quite good, and the package describes it as “zesty” (the old package used the word zesty as well). We’re not entirely certain about this, but we suspect that Sweet Earth has increased the amount of garlic in the sauce, which means it’s maybe zestier? (That depends on your definition of the term zesty, we suppose.)

The crust is outstanding. It’s a wheat-based crust that’s way richer in flavor than we’re used to a pizza crust being. It’s absolutely delicious, and it gives all of these veggies a really great base, flavor-wise. We’re tempted to say that the crust might be our favorite part of this pizza.

According to the package, 1/3 of the pizza is a serving. If you stick to that, you’ll be consuming 210 calories and 330 mg of sodium. If you eat the entire pizza in a sitting, you’re looking at 620 calories and 1,000 mg of sodium. All things considered, that’s really not that bad.

Of course, this pizza isn’t very big, so the temptation to eat the whole thing is going to be quite real. But half a pizza, which seems like a better serving size, is pretty reasonable in both the calories (310) and sodium (500 mg) departments.

The new version of the Sweet Earth Veggie Lover’s Pizza is still quite delicious. While we’re not huge fans of the vegan cheese substitute this time around, we do think this pizza still has a lot to offer. And it’s not often that we rave about a pizza crust, but this crust is absolutely incredible.
