We fell down an Instagram hole (yes, this happens to us too), and on this occasion, we're glad we did because we found the Kickstarter campaign for Luna & Fennel, a small, independent food company making cauliflower crust pizzas bases and ready-made pizzas. The company is looking for funding to expand into retail and need our help! The idea for Luna & Fennel came a few years ago when Founder, Leanne saw a gap in the market for a vegan pizza that tasted great and was free from all the sugar and additives. Feeling inspired, she developed her own recipe and spent a year testing it out at street food markets and supper clubs in Berlin before moving back to London and concentrating on the retail scene.
The pizza base recipe is unique - made with blended cauliflower, a mix of gluten-free flours, linseeds and a touch of fennel seeds, an addition that comes straight from her own Nonna's recipe. Using responsibly-sourced ingredients, the pizzas are 100% natural with no artificial additives or preservatives. They are a great source of vitamins and minerals, fibre and omega-3. The bases and pizzas are launching into Planet Organic stores in April with a range of ready made, chilled pizzas to take home & pop in the oven or a plain base for creating your own masterpiece. The range will include:
