Thin, herbed crust pizza with roasted garlic pizza sauce, fresh tomato, red bell pepper, green chili pepper, collard greens, japanese eggplant and soy cheese.
I'm not absolutely sure how this happened - but low and behold we have the cheesiest vegan pizza I have never come across, and I've seen my share of fake cheesiness goodness and badness.
This was greatness.
The Follow Your Heart mozzarella had been frozen a couple days and sliced into thin squares. My oven was hot and ready, and my crust was very thin - even though these were baked on a cookie sheet, I think the delectably thin crust is what took it to meltdown central.
If you've never had Follow Your Heart before, it probably is the 'best' of the storeboughts widely available in the US, but nothing like real cheese. I prefer the mozzarella and monterey jack (thanks for the tip, ppk vancouver party!) on pizza, myself. I look forward to trying Cheezly when it comes to my area...one day. I've tried Scheese, but I just can't justify that price!
Let's cleanse our palates with this fresh farmer's market produce from last weekend:
Strawberries in August? Hell, yeah.
Another Italian tofu scramble.
with kalamata olives, fresh basil, tomatoes, garlic, dried oregano, chanterelle mushrooms, carrots, bell pepper and firm tofu.
Grilled and fresh dinner plate - fresh corn on the cob, fresh yellow and red tomatoes with sea salt, grilled broccoli, grilled creminis & japanese eggplant (brushed with white wine, olive oil & tamari). Can you tell with this plate that IKEA opened up or what?
A pizza from a couple weeks ago, heart shaped because I'm special.
That's all for now..Friday's my 25th birthday, so expect a cake or treat of some sort for the weekend!
