fuck yeah vegan pizza

reblogged from maplehoodkitchen:

This is the first recipe we made from our new Vegan Pizza cookbook. We haven’t yet made a full pizza from the book, but we used a recipe for soy curls. At the same time, we wanted to make a deep dish pizza [one thing we miss from Chicago], so we did both. We made it in a cheese cake pan - the walls held in the crust. It’s not actually as thick as it looks, more like a crust bowl. Then we added tomato sauce, teese mozzarella, olives, mushrooms, and garlic soy curls. The soy curls were simple to make, just cook them in a pan. They turned out really good, chewy but with a nutritional yeast crust. The flavor held up, even in a thick deep dish pizza with other toppings. They’re also delicious to eat on their own as a snack.

Deep Dish Daiya Cheese Pizza! Having never made deep dish pizza before (I know, boo! hiss! boo!), this was a practice run for a Parks & Rec-inspired dish I’m planning for VeganMoFo. (It’s in August this year…right? RIGHT!?! Cue: flailing panic and mass hysteria.)

We used this crust recipe, halved and veganized. In addition to copious amounts of melty mozzarella cheese, it’s got sauce, onions, garlic, tomatoes, Kalamata olives, mushrooms and basil. Hella good, but I’m still feeling it this afternoon.
