Annie's is a natural and organic food company that has been known for years for selling prepackaged foods made without the artificial flavors and synthetic colors and preservatives that are usually present in abundance in other microwavable meals. I know them best as the quick meals in the freezer case at the front of my local Harris Teeter that allows me to rationalize not cooking something from scratch when I'm in a hurry for lunch.

Annie's latest product launch is their Rising Crust Pizza line. To celebrate, they kicked off the “Slice of Happiness Tour” from their hometown, Berkeley, Calif., on Sept. 29. Annie’s mobile pizza kitchen and organic garden will travel 6,000 miles to 11 cities nationwide, offering samples of all three pizza varieties, including an Uncured Pepperoni Pizza, a Four Cheese Pizza made with mozzarella, provolone, parmesan and romano cheeses and a BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza topped with white meat chicken — raised without antibiotics and no added hormones, with organic roasted onions and tangy organic barbecue sauce. All three 11.5-inch family-sized varieties are made with organic flour, organic tomatoes, whole grains and 100 percent real, rBST-free+ cheese. (OK, I have to admit that I needed to Google that last boast. But bovine somatotropin sounds like something I don't want in my cheese.)

According to the official announcement of the tour stops, the “Slice of Happiness Tour” will "serve up pizza and host a number of fun, family activities including the opportunity to dig into Annie’s Truck Farm — a mobile garden growing organic herbs like the ones found in Annie’s pizza. Visitors can also take interactive family photos with Bernie, Annie’s mascot and Rabbit of Approval, and have a chance to win prizes, pizza coupons."

This Saturday, Nov. 3, Annie's "Slice of Happiness Tour" will park the bus at the Discovery Center at Murfree Springs in Murfreesboro from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The next day, the caravan stops at the Nashville Zoo from 9 a.m. until 4 in the afternoon. For more information about the tour, you can visit the official website.
