Yves Veggie Pizza Pepperoni – OU Parve

Yves Veggie Pizza PepperoniOver the past couple of years, Yves Veggie Pizza Pepperoni has almost become a staple around our home. Let me just say that these pre-sliced pepperoni are delicious cold or hot. It’s very hard when using them in cooking not to nibble on 1 or 2 of them.

Do they taste as good a real meat pepperoni? The answer is no, but they are still good. They’re mildly spiced with just a hint of pepper and not too salty, so even the kids love them.

We like to use them when making pizza bagels, or home made pizza. Unlike meat, they don’t curl up or shrink when you cook them so keep that in mind when using them. They can be very hot and still look like they just came out of the package. (16 slices contain a mere 0.2g of saturated fat and 80 calories).

What is more impressive is what they don’t contain. They are made without preservatives, trans fat and no artifical colors or flavors. They do contain relatively high amounts of Iron, Niacin, Vitamin B12 and Zinc.

We give them a 4 out 5 for taste and convenience plus you can add another .5 for the ability have this meat substitute on your pizza.

They are parve so they are good for vegans, but do contain some wheat starch so people with Gluten Intolerance may want to avoid them
