I would marry a pizza if I could...

That's right.  The hardest thing I had to give up when I became vegan was pizza, hands down.  Cheesy, carb loaded, delicious pizza.  I almost broke down several times, but I held fast.  All vegan cheese pizzas I had tried were sub par until now!  With Daiya you can make any of your old favorite cheesey dishes guilt free!  In case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard, Daiya is the coolest thing since sliced bread.  Seriously.  It melts, stretches and tastes like real cheese, without all the greasy fat oozing from it!  You can find this cheese in your co-op or Whole Foods.  If they don't carry it, then request it! 

Last Saturday, January 29, was national Vegan Pizza Day.  Never heard of it?  Yeah, well, neither did I.  A friend told me about it and invited me out for pizza.  I didn't need to be asked twice.  I had heard through the grapevine that if you called ahead you could have the cooks at Glass Nickel make you a vegan pizza with Daiya if you brought it in.  Well, sure enough, it's true!  It was absolutely delicious!  Courtney and I went a little nuts when building our pizza and got a ridiculous amount of toppings, and it was great!  So next time you want great cheesey vegan pizza, you know where to go! 

*Word be warned, Glass Nickel does use refined sugar to make their crust.  Since the amount used is very neglibile and not all refined sugar is processed with bone char, I let this one slide.  Stricter vegans might object, but I don't think this is something to get up in arms about.  As always, we do the best we can, and some battles are more important than others.

  1. You can also make vegan pizza w/Daiya pretty easily at home! I've gotten vegan pre-made crusts from Whole Foods, Daiya, pasta/pizza sauce, and whatever other toppings (such as Upton's Naturals Italian-style seitan, vegan pepperoni, and lots of veggies). You could also make homemade crust, but that takes a little bit more time & effort.
