One of the hardest parts about going vegan is giving up all of the heart-clogging comfort foods we just can’t seem to live without. For most people, pizza probably tops the list - and for good reason. It’s cheap. It’s delicious. And someone will even drive one over to you so you don’t have to get off the couch. But if you’re serious about going vegan, the delivery boy has to go, or does he?
Obviously a good pizza requires lots and lots of cheese, right? And if you’re really a vegan, real cheese is a big no-no. But thankfully the folks at Daiya have made such progress in alternative cheese technology, that even vegans can enjoy some gooey goodness. Thanks to our discovery of Daiya products at Whole Foods, we were able to come up with an awesome pizza that I swear I would eat even if I weren’t vegan. Yes, it’s that good.
So without further ado, here is what you need to make my “Better than Domino’s Vegan Pizza”:
- 1 Package of 365 Everyday Value Organic Whole Wheat Pizza Crusts (Whole Foods brand)
- 1 Jar Enrico’s All Natural Pizza Sauce (available at Whole Foods)
- 1 Package of Daiya Mozzarella Style Shreds (probably need to get that at Whole Foods too)
- A Few Handfuls of Fresh Baby Spinach (might as well get that at Whole Foods since you’re already there)
- 1 Green Pepper Sliced (Yep…Whole Foods)
Directions (in case it isn’t obvious):
Preheat the oven according to the directions on the pizza crust package.
Lay out 1 crust on a circular baking sheet and spread the sauce until it covers the crust.
Throw on the spinach and pepper.
Cover with the Daiya shreds.
Bake according to the directions.
Remove from oven, cut into slices, and say, “Wow! I guess you CAN be a vegan and have your pizza too!”
