Product of the Week: Luna & Fennel Cauliflower Pizza Bases

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:

  • Super Liguria: Kale sunflower seed pesto, sweet potato, charred tomatoes
  • Margherita: Tomatoes, vegan mozzaRisella, basil
  • Marinara: San Marzano D.O.P tomatoes, garlic, oregano, olive oil, basil
  • Two plain pizza bases: to nourish and inspire your inner chef!
