Healthy Freeze-Dried Pizza | Comfort Food for On The Go

healthy delicious freeze-dried pizza

Freeze-dried pizza. Seriously, no joke.

Where's my fellow foodies?!

Recently I was craving really good pizza that had a killer tomato sauce and a nice crispy crust. I was out dog training for the entire day and a quick Google search returned zero pizza options. Zero. Nilch. I remember thinking "Are you serious?! How hard is it to find good pizza!!"

But actually, I've found finding good, let alone great, pizza that isn't drowning in grease to be a real struggle. And that's when it hit me. Could pizza be freeze-dried? What if I made a pizza that could be kept in the pantry and taken on the go when I know I'm out for the entire day? 

I took the thought one step further.

What if I made a healthy pizza with no processed flour, that is gluten-free and, dare I say it, delicious.

Introducing......!

Pizza Toast!

This pizza crams in over 4 servings of vegetables to make you feel full and satisfied. The crust, made mostly of cauliflower, has a nice crunch; when freeze-dried, the pizza becomes more like a pizza flavored toast.

My goal is that any busy person, whether you are a backpacker, camper, on the road often, parent, student, teacher, nurse... whatever your busy is, that you can have nourishing meals at a moment's notice.

Let me start by saying I hope you are safe and healthy during these uncertain times. I am writing to assure that everyone in the Bushka family is healthy and in good spirits (and using the lessoned traffic to spend more evenings night hiking. Not all social distancing needs to be done at home!)

Due to increased demand, some meals are currently out of stock or we have limited supply on remaining freeze dried meals. At this time, we are waiting for our next shipment of packaging so we can begin making more freeze dried meal pouches. We thank you for your understanding and patience.
