This week's recipe is inspired by the technology breakdown my USB had at the library this past weekend. I was finding sources for a writing assignment when I accidentally pressed a button I wasn't supposed t o and BOOM...all my hard work was gone.
For the next fifteen mintues I wandered about figuring out how and why this could possibly happen to me. Then I reminded myself of the things that mattered to me: family, friends, veganism, being an idiot (yes it's a priority), and cooking (duh?).
Then my mind thought of the one meal that solves my hunger problems: vegan pizza. Initially I was going to buy the dough from Trader Joe's but decided I was going to make it. I have the ingredients so...WHY NOT?
Honestly though, I ask for major challenges when I'm making new recipes.
I had never made vegan pizza. Let me correct that: it had never come out right.
Then I found Siracha Vegan's dough recipe and I was saved. I mean thank God for Pinterest. I don't know what I'd do without it.
It difficult finding a mixture that was both oil free , vegan, and fat free. That is why we have this thing called "creative solutions." That's right I put my substituting skills on a mission. And that mission turned out to be easier than expected.
Moral of this post? Not all days have to be bad. A day of losing data on my USB turned out to be a good thing because I realized that I actually can cook a vegan pizza. One that tastes good and is appeasing to almost everyone. Plus who know that Follow Your Heart cheese was AMAZING. I mean, I was missing out...big time.
Nevertheless I hope ya'll enjoy this.
