VeganMoFo: Pizza

On the last day of VeganMoFo, I bring you pizza! I'm having Internet issues, so photos and links will have to wait. :( I'd been thinking about Hawaiian pizza for some odd reason. It was never something I liked as an omni, so goodness knows where this thought originated. I had leftover pizza sauce from the day I tried Trader Joe's faux meatballs (see previous VeganMoFo post), so I bought frozen crust, Follow Your Heart faux mozzarella cheese, faux ham, and organic pineapple chunks on my last Follow Your Heart trip.

The pizza crust was a no-brainer because the ingredients are whole grain brown rice and potato. That's it. It's gluten-free and low fat on top of it. It turned out crispy, which I like, but it stuck to the back of my teeth a little. Still, I'd by this crust again (the brand is Nature's Hilights) as it tasted good and is quite healthy.

The verdict? I like pizza, but pineapple on pizza isn't my thing. I might try FYH jack on pizza next time to see if the flavor has more punch. The mozzarella is good, just very mild.

I'm cutting this post short because it's late. Photos as soon as the Internet starts behaving!

mmm, vegan pizza!! excellently delicious way to end the VeganMofo event :0) I've never had pineapple on pizza, but have always wanted to try it - now I don't know if I want to anymore, since you weren't that keen on it.

I was never a fan of Hawaiian-style pizza either; it's funny that you tried it even though you haven't liked it in the past! :) I guess it's always nice to retry foods again later in life -- I've done that with avocados, and now I love them! :)

I love FYH Jack cheese on pizza. In fact, that has become my FYH flavor of choice because I have decided that the MOz is just too mild for me (although yummy). Anyway, I never liked Hawaiian pizza in my pre-vegan days, but now I love it! Go figure ;)

Thanks for the peanut butter tip! Unfortunately, any type of Trader Joe's or Whole Foods stores are far out of my reach -- I live in central Illinois, and the good stores are nearly two hours north. I however HAVE found some natural peanut butters in a Kroger down here, which I am super excited about! So thank you!
