Ya’ll, I have reach the pinnacle of vegan cooking.
Homemade Vegan Pizza. Worth eating. I know.
Forgive the awful cell phone pictures, but this was just too good not to share. Honest to goodness Mom & Pop pizza feel and taste to it. I’ve made this pizza twice now. I followed the recipe for this pizza dough both times. The first I did a nice over night dough rise (and made my own sauce, per her instructions). The second time, I threw it together on a Sunday afternoon and used up the last of some store bought pizza sauce we had in the fridge. I added some slices of Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheese and kept my fingers crossed that the cheese would melt a bit (a common Vegan cheese problem).
The words “wait…which one is mine” and “aw man, yours looks better” were heard in my kitchen that night. Glorious glorious words. I think the secret was putting the cheese in the oven when it was 500 degrees :) But seriously, that dough? Magical. I’ve already turned a few people onto it, while becoming a total addict myself. There is literally nothing I have made and/or adapted from Smitten Kitchen that has not tasted amazing. I forsee many.many.MANY nights of pizza in my future.
