Recently, I have decided to make a few minute exceptions. Although still in opposition to business and profiting off food, I have opted to support a few local and / or friend based ventures. Today will be the first of a few.
Since I have not had much experience cooking with pepperoni, I decided the ultimate test was pizza. Just vegan cheese, the pepperonis and a touch of cilantro. If these could pass this, they would certainly serve any other peperoni purpose.
I think I must have said about 5 minutes during the eating of my first slice that the peperoni has a great flavor. A nice subtle heat but not over bearing. From what little I remember of pepperoni, these are the real deal. They felt very meaty without crossing the line. Unlike some of the other mock peperoni I have tried, these even stayed moist even as they got a little crispy. Bottom line, these were excellent.
Check out the Gutenfleischer's; vegan meats website and pick up some great mock meats! Make a pizza and watch some basketball. You will not be disappointed.
