Amy’s Personal Pizzas are here!
Amy’s Pizzas are always popular, but there are times when a full sized pizza is too much to prepare and certainly too much for one person to eat. That’s why the folks at Amy’s have created Amy’s individual sized Personal Pizzas which have the same great taste and natural and organic ingredients as their full sized pizzas, but are just right for one person to eat for a quick lunch or a tasty snack. Available in the following varieties:
Amy’s Roasted Vegetable Personal Pizza (6.2 ounces, suggested retail price: $4.49) No cheese. Topped with marinated organic shiitake mushrooms, roasted red peppers, sweet onions and marinated artichoke hearts. Non-dairy/no cholesterol.
Amy’s Pesto Personal Pizza (7.0 ounces, suggested retail price: $4.49)
Light tender crust topped with Amy's homemade pesto, part skim mozzarella cheese, garden fresh organic tomato slices and broccoli florets.
Amy’s Southern Meal
(10 ounces, suggested retail price: $3.99)
Here is down-home southern cooking at its best! The folks at Amy’s created this traditional meal with the help of a friend of theirs who comes from Louisiana … mashed sweet potatoes, light cornbread with kernels of sweet corn and bits of pimento topped with a flavorful sauce and tender pinto beans, and nutritious collard and swiss chard “greens”. This is comfort food that can be enjoyed on any occasion!
The following recently introduced items will be sampled and are Available to ship now:
Soups and Beans
Amy’s Thai Coconut Soup
(14.1 ounces, suggested retail price: $2.29)
Amy’s version of the traditional “Thom Kha Phak”, so popular in Thai restaurants, combines sweet, smooth coconut milk with gently warming Thai spices, organic tofu, lemongrass, shiitake mushrooms, sweet potatoes and other organic vegetables. This delicate, flavorful soup is a fine introduction to Thai cuisine.
Amy’s Tuscan Bean and Rice Soup
(14.1 ounces, suggested retail price: $2.29)
This delicious soup is almost a stew, substantial and nourishing like the pranzo (midday meal) eaten in Tuscany, Italy. Organic barlotti beans, for which that region is noted, brown rice, and fresh tasting organic vegetables make it a thoroughly satisfying meal. Buon Appetito!
Amy’s Light in Sodium Lentil Soup
(14.5 ounces, suggested retail price: $2.29)
Amy, who is a picky eater, loves this nourishing lentil soup, made from her mom's favorite recipe. It is high in protein and fiber, and has a rich, satisfying flavor and contains 50% less sodium than Amy’s regular version.
Amy’s Light in Sodium Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque (14.5 ounces, $2.29) Amy’s dad says this is even tastier than our original Cream of Tomato Soup. We’ve added tender chunks of vine ripened tomatoes to a smooth creamy tomato base to create a full flavored bisque you’re sure to enjoy.
Amy’s Light in Sodium Refried Traditional Beans (15.4 ounces, suggested retail price: $1.89) Organic pinto beans prepared in the traditional way with organic onions and spices, but without the lard found in many brands. These beans are perfect for preparing your favorite Mexican dish and contain 50% less sodium than Amy’s regular Refried Beans.
Amy’s Indian Spinach Tofu Wrap (5.5 ounces, suggested retail price: $2.29) Another delicious addition to Amy’s growing line of home style Indian meals. Made with organic spinach and tofu. Amy’s newest wrap is a quick and easy breakfast, savory lunch or perfect for any time of day. Vegan.
