Vegan MoFo: Pizza Night

It's pretty sweet having bread master, Julian, staying with us for a bit.

Among other tasty treats, last week he made a batch of pizza dough from The Bread Bakers Apprentice, letting it hang out in the fridge until we were ready to use it. The next day he harvested a ton of basil from the garden and whipped up a healthy amount of pesto, some of which is in the freezer, waiting to be used.

Mighty fine bubbly action.
We had quite the pizza feast.  Toppings included the pesto, tomato sauce, melty gooey Follow Your Heart, black olives, sun dried tomato spread, shaved fennel, mushrooms, arugula, red onion slices, and fresh avocado.  I throw together a salad to go along with our carbfest- arugula, chickpeas, thinly sliced red onion, diced apples, and raw pumpkin seeds, tossed with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, nooch, and salt and pepper.

We were loosing daylight, so sadly four pizzas went unphotographed!
Tonight, Julian is cooking up an Indian feast (which I think you'll be able to read about here tonight).  I'm sitting on my butt, MoFoing while inhaling the aromas coming from the kitchen.  It's pretty nice to have someone else cooking after you've worked all day!

You three, pose awkwardly with your pizzas!

  1. The awkward pizza shot is gold. Pizza and awkwardness, two of my favorite things combined!

    Seriously though, I have never made pizza crust that bubbly and perfect. I'm jealous of your gorgeous meal.

  6. Ps, Amanda, I clicked on your link from the mofo site via the list of PPKers. I think the link got typed in wrong. It takes you to inmyvegangarden.blogpsot.com (rather than blogspot) which is some crazy bible studies site! Ha.

    2. Also, the fact that it redirected folks to a bible website is pretty funny, and was probably confusing.
