.I’ve been on a pizza kick lately. I’m not entirely sure why, but man oh man, I’ve been making pizzas all of the time. It’s a bit ridiculous, to be honest, but Jason and I get cravings, you know? And it is what it is. It’s just such a versatile lunch/dinner/leftovers meal, not to mention how inexpensive and I just cannot pass it up.
It does become a little bit of a hassle in that I don’t eat cheese and he does, but we have found work arounds, and recently he has allowed me things like vegan pepperoni so we meet somewhere in the middle and it turns out great. It seems somewhat silly for me to write a recipe for pizza, but I figure I’ll include some of my favorite toppings , a couple of pictures, and you can see how I do them and then run with it.
Either way, happy Meatless Monday, and always feel free to drop a line. :)
The pizza pictured below consisted of the following: Vegan pepperoni, baby portabella mushrooms (diced), red bell peppers (diced) and white onion (also diced); it had red sauce and Daiya mozzarella flavored “cheese”
Additionally, getting away from the red sauces: my lemon/alfredo pizza and pesto pizza are two of my very favorites.
I’m a huge fan of pineapple/white onion/jalapeño, bbq sauce/gardein or beyond meat vegan “chicken” strips/red onion, taco sauce/refried beans/cheddar with shredded lettuce/raw onion/pico de gallo on top after being baked.
Now, for pizza crusts I have been buying mine pre-made at Publix, but I hear that it’s super easy to make, so I think in the near future you can look froward to seeing a post about just how easy it is- just keep your eyes peeled.
And finally, my past point. Pizza is so simple, so inexpensive and so much fun that you can even make your own pizzeria styled dinner settings for a truly Italian style dinner. Below I have our pizza on a pizza stone, I used a brush to put some grapeseed oil on the crust, poured two glasses of red wine, lit two votive candles, poured some vegan parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes in a small whiskey glass, folded paper towels for napkins and used my peppermint striped dish towels for our pizza “tablecloth”. Simple, delicious and fun for the whole family!
Got something to say?
