Vegan pizza: A failure of execution…

Lesson: looks ≠ taste

After almost four weeks of being vegan, I became ambitious and tried my hand at vegan pizza. Looks tasty, no?

I started with a bread recipe that came highly recommended, but turned out less than stellar in practice. I substituted wheat flour thinking of health and got heavy dense bread. It didn’t help that my crust was far, far, far too thick (lacking a rolling pin).

I also failed in the pizza sauce, not mixing in enough spices (oregano, garlic, salt, pepper).

Worst of all, I opted for the cheaper fake cheese veggie shreds. The higher quality, more expensive Daiya cheese-like veggie shreds work. These were an epic fail, despite promising to melt.

That's a lot of bread

Even with various spices, it was far too bland.

Melting fail

    I’m not going to feel bad for you! That’s what you get for trying to make pizza too healthy! Next time, opt for only some whole wheat flour and nix the fake cheese altogether. Much better that way. I suggest thinnly sliced potatoes, rosemary, olive oil and lots of garlic.
