Celebrating Vegan Pizza Day

June 30 (today) is Vegan Pizza Day. While I do have options here in the desert (ZPizza in Palm Desert, about 20 minutes away has a vegan pizza), I decided to make my own tonight to celebrate.

The key to a perfect crust is to let the dough “rest” for at least a half hour.

The perfect vegan pizza ingredients.

Goldie stays in perfect position in case I drop anything on the floor.

For toppings, I decided to split the pizza in half. I chose potato, garlic and rosemary for one half, and mushroom, caramelized onion, and garlic for the other. I had some Daiya vegan cheese to top off both sides. I will admit, I purchased the pizza crust and sauce from Trader Joes, but everything else was from scratch.

    It was one of my best pizzas ever! I shared the leftovers with some non-vegans today and they loved it too!

    That is Goldie, one of my five dogs. She is “challenged.” She has a compressed disk. After her injury, we thought that she’d never be able to walk again. Now she runs, jumps (a little clumsily, but she does it!).
