Getting serious about Vegan Pizza
Pizza made on a pizza stone (new!) with tomato sauce, roasted eggplant, garlic, spinach and fresh basil. Topped with Daiya Italian Blend vegan cheese. Daiya is melt-y, cheese-y and soy-free if you care about being free of soy. I don't but I think it's cool that they made "cheese" out of cassava.
We can't find anywhere to buy Daiya in in NYC, so I order it from VeganEssentials.com when we want some, but if anyone knows where to get this locally, let me know in the comments! The cheddar flavor is also excellent is quesadillas.
Also, Fleischmann's brand yeast makes a special pizza yeast. I didn't think it would make a difference but it does. Makes the crust chewier and more toothsome. Recommended.
