Take & Bake Pizzas are Now In the Deli’s Grab’n’Go Case!
That’s right, not only are we now selling hot slices of fresh-baked pizza at the Deli Counter, in flavors like Bacon Jalapeno, Vegan Popcorn, and plain ol’ Cheese, but we now have whole, take’n’bake pizzas ready to go from our Deli’s grab’n’go case in those same flavors! Our fresh, homemade dough is par-baked, topped with organic Muir Glen pizza sauce and either Organic Valley or Vegan Daiya mozzarella, topped as needed, then wrapped up for you to take home and finish off in your oven for a delicious, hot and tasty meal in minutes flat! Don’t wanna turn on the oven? You can even cook it on your hot BBQ grill, just be sure to put the cover on!
And right now, owners save $1.00 on any of our whole Take & Bake Pizzas! Try the Bacon Jalapeno for $8.99, reg. $9.99, the Popcorn Tofu & Vegan Cheese for $8.99, reg. $9.99, and classic Cheese for $7.99, reg. $8.99!
And if you’re the do-it-yourself type, our bakers are now making fresh pizza dough for you for you to make your own pie! Look for raw dough balls in our grab’n’go cooler, just $2.99 each!

Speaking of toppings, an easy solution is to graze our salad and olive bars, gathering already-prepped peppers, onions, olives, pepperoncini, mushrooms and more, and allowing each of your dinner guests to top their pizza with their favorite items!

New gluten-free pizzas, far out-flavored kale chips, kits to get your chili on this summer, and more… We work hard to seek out exciting new products and flavors we think our members will love. Here’s what’s new at Wheatsville this week.
In each bag of Alive & Radiant Kale Krunch you'll find full kale leaves that have been dehydrated for a satisfying crunch. Alive & Radiant sprouts, mixes and dehydrates ingredients at low temperatures so that they remain 'raw'. Never baked or fried, you can rest assured that the fat in these snacks comes from heart-healthy nuts and seeds; the nutrients and great taste stay intact and aren't processed away. While the Chipotle and Chockalet definitely didn't fail to impress, the Spirulina Orange Creamsicle turned out to be the unexpected hit of the bunch for us! 2.2oz, Reg. $5.99
Fans of Udi's gluten-free baked goods take note: Udi's has branched out into frozen ready-to-bake pizzas! The Margherita features vine-ripened tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil; the Pepperoni version adds uncured pepperoni and a sprinkling of fresh basil. Both are notable for an impressively light and crispy crust, considering the lack of gluten. 10oz, Reg. $6.99
Sometimes you just can't get that garlic aroma off your hands, days after chopping it. Sometimes you just can't use an entire bunch of basil before it turns black. Dorot offers a simple solution to those who like to have fresh ingredients on hand, whenever they're needed: pre-cleaned, measured, and chopped or crushed herbs and seasonings for your freezer. Each pack resembles a mini ice cube tray, with 20 cubes portioned either in teaspoons or cloves (for garlic). Enjoy rich, tasty, fragrant food, without the effort of washing, chopping and cleaning up. 2.5-2.8oz, Reg. $2.39
TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) is produced from soy flour after the soybean oil has been extracted, then cooked under pressure, extruded, and dried. It can be added to casseroles to add extra flavor and nutrition, and is also used to replace or extend ground meats. TVP has a long shelf life if stored properly and is an excellent source of protein and fiber. 10oz, Reg. $2.99
Chana Dal are split, polished baby Garbanzo Beans. They have a sweet flavor reminiscent of fresh corn and the cooked bean is about the size and shape of a corn kernel. Chana Dal makes an interesting addition to soups, salads, and rice dishes. 24oz, Reg. $6.99
Pomegranate molasses is made by boiling down the juice of a tart variety of pomegranate. It forms a thick, sweet, dark brown liquid that has its roots in Turkish and in Persian cuisine. Try adding it to homemade barbeque sauce recipes, to sparkling water for a refreshing drink, or drizzled over a hunk of fresh cheese. 10oz, Reg. $3.99
Trim Toniq utilizes some of the world's best herbs and natural compounds that have potential for curbing appetite, without the use of stimulants such as caffeine or hoodia. Eight active ingredients aid in appetite suppression: Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), Inositol, Achyranthes Aspera Seed, L-Carnitine, Ginsenosides/Astragalus, and Coca Leaf Extract (don't worry-- the scary alkaloids in this last ingredient have been removed!). Lightly sweetened with Chokeberry and Monkfruit, each can comes in at only 3 grams of sugar, with fewer than 30 calories. 8.4oz, Reg. $2.49
Refreshment seekers, welcome to where flavor, effervescence, energy and rainforest meet. Bubbling with bright tamarind and lime delights, Guayaki's Sparkling Classic Gold Yerba Mate is the latest small miracle to flow from the yerba mate tree. Available chilled in our beverage cooler. 12oz, Reg. $1.99
Frontera Chili Starters; Texas Red Bean with Bock Beer & Guajillo, Black Bean with Chipotle & Garlic, White Bean with New Mexico Green Chile
Frontera’s full-flavored, easy to use Chili Starters will make everyone wish they had just one more bowl. Simply brown 1 pound of ground meat, poultry, or meat alternative, add the Frontera Starter and simmer a few minutes. Then serve a bowl of chili that will taste like you cooked all day. Frontera is produced by Chef Rick Bayless (owner of Frontera and Topolobampo restaurants in Chicago), whose passion lies in regional Mexican cuisine. 24oz, Reg. $5.99
Wick Fowler's 2-Alarm Chili Kit produces a classic chili with just the right amount of heat and balance of seasonings. It's been around for a while, and is so good, it won the World Chili Championships in 1970! The chili kit hasn't changed: the ingredients include a large packet of chili powder, crushed red pepper, paprika, salt, a garlic and onion combo, another combo packet of oregano and cumin and also some masa flour for thickening. All that is needed is 2 lbs. of beef, an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, and water to make 1 1/2 quarts of chili per package of mix. The individual seasonings are all in separate little pouches so you can season with to your individual tastes. Perfect for your next chili cook-off. 3.6oz, Reg. $2.99
