Rustic Crust Pizza

I’m always looking for a good pizza crust.  It can be the most difficult step in the pizza process if you make your own dough, which I do sometimes.  But when time is scarce….

The two culprit ingredients always impeding my search for vegan crusts are honey and milk products (whey, cheese, solids, other etc. nastiness).  Then, I discovered Rustic Crust Ready-Made Old World Pizza Crust. Most, but not all, of the varieties are vegan.  I got my hands on the Classic Sourdough.

I find pre-made pizza crusts a bit dry for my taste- I prefer a slightly oily crust.  The Sourdough crust was no exception.  So, the second time I bought it, I made sure to brush it with some olive oil- much to the dismay of my dry-crust-loving-pizza-partner.  But, it all worked out.  It wasn’t too oily.

The crust sufficed.  Nothing really can replace a fresh dough ready to be baked into the thick, airy pie of a deep dish, or the thin, crispy skin of the New York style crust.  Rustic Crust blended with the sauce well and baked in my oven according to the instructions.
