“Ahh, pizza night. A thing to be cherished.” writes Minimalist Baker‘s Dana Schultz.
Schultz loves pizza, and she can teach you to make vegan pizza that is out of this world that non-vegans will crave to eat. Non-vegans… you may never go back to “the other”.
“One of my greatest struggles since going completely dairy-free has been giving up my beloved veggie pie. I’m not even that big of a cheese fan, but pizza just wasn’t pizza if there wasn’t a thick layer of mozzarella and a little parmesan on top. Ya know?”
“But, the constant feelings of discomfort it would bring made it not worth it to me. So we reassessed our weekly pizza routine and decided to start making all of our pizzas at home – one without cheese for me and one with cheese for John.
“Thank goodness for me there is a 1-minute, homemade alternative to parmesan cheese. Vegan parmesan! Have you tried it?
“This really is – in my opinion – the best pizza I’ve had – vegan or not!”
- 1/2 of one Trader Joe’s garlic-herb pizza crust (or half of this homemade recipe or this gluten-free recipe)
