Frozen Pizza Features Fake Cheese

In a move that will make former Catholic philanthropist Rose Totino turn over in her grave, I just discovered the other day that Totino's frozen pizza is now made with fake cheese. I'm not sure how long this has been the case, but cheese is the costliest item on your pizza so my guess is it is a recent cost-saving development on General Mills' part.

What do they use instead? Mozzarella cheese substitute of course. It's full of all sorts of yummy ingredients like (water, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, casein, potato starch, vital wheat gluten, sodium aluminum phosphate, salt, potassium chloride, citric acid, potassium sorbate, sodium phosphate, sodium citrate, titanium dioxide [to make it all look like mozzarella], maltodextrin, magnesium oxide, zinc oxide, vitamin a palmitate, riboflavin, vitamin b12).

I won't even get into the pork sirloin hips that they pass off as sausage, but suffice it to say you can learn a lot by reading a label, and I think I've had my last Totino's pizza.
