Walking by the pizza station at the San Mateo Whole Foods, I saw to my astonishment that they had a little sign that read Vegan BBQ Chicken Pizza. I don’t know how many times I’ve walked by before and there was never anything remotely vegan.
I asked to be sure, that the whole pizza was vegan, not just the bbq chicken part. They answered in the affirmative; it has a thin whole wheat crust and Gardein chicken.
I thought the “chicken” pieces seemed a little dry and didn’t really add all that much to the pizza. The flavor came mostly from the bbq sauce. But I liked the onions and how it wasn’t really greasy at all.
I can’t say for sure I’ll get the bbq chicken pizza again (if it’s regularly available), as I prefer my pizza to have a combination of different vegetables. I’m hoping that the next time I walk by, they’ll have a different flavor or better yet a selection of vegan pizzas slices.
