Pizza

Well, I FINALLY got to a kitchen for the first time since coming back to school this semester. At the boy's apartment :-) we made pizza! Pillsbury dough-in-a-can and store bought pizza sauce (both vegan as far as I could tell.) His half (on the right) with grated cheese and pepperonis, my half with Follow Your Heart Vegan Mozzarella and Yves pepperonis. As you can see, the "cheese" didn't melt too well, I'm a little bummed. But it tasted fine.. just looked ugly.

tania,
after you grate the soy cheese mix it in a bowl with some nutritional yeast, dry herbs, salt, pepper, and some olive oil. The oil i find really helps to melt the cheese. Bake the ZA at a really high heat for a short amount of time. lastly drizzle a little bit more extra virgin olive oil and salt on top of the soy cheese before it goes in the oven. you will get that pizza and cheese taste that you were looking for. The nutrional yeast really helps too.

Pizza looks good! Weird that the Follow Your Heart didn't melt. I've used it on pizza before and it melted like regular mozzarella. I LOVE Yves pepperoni on my pizza. Sooooo delicious!

I find that if you broil it for the last minute or two, it starts to melt and bubble. Still looks delicious!

That looks good! I'd kill for any food I could chew at the moment (oh yes, you'll be interested to know that I *finally* had my wisdom teeth taken out! Thanks for setting a good example for me!)

I forget where I read it but, someone somwhere said that the follow your heart is best when you melt it first on the stove then poor it over your pizza.??? humm...
It didn't melt for me on my pizza either.
