What’s better than a spontaneous vegan pizza party?! Yeah, that’s right. Nothing. Hungry after our adventures wandering around the east end the other day, we were trying to decide on a dinner location, and type. Passing a local pizza joint that has a few vegan slices, I couldn’t contain my verbal drooling (wtf?!), to which one of our group declared that she had gluten free pizza crusts, toppings and Daiya cheese at home, a mere five minute walk from where we happened to be standing! Well, that’s a no-brainer.
Turns out, she had some O’Doughs individual-sized gluten free flax pizza crusts, a plethora of veggies and a brand new bag of Daiya cheddar shreds on offer! We set to work prepping our veggies and then each topped our own individual pie.
I obviously went the veg-crazy route – piling on mushrooms, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, hot banana peppers and the two super awesome and most important “secret ingredients” – crushed garlic and chopped kale! A recent discovery of mine revolutionized my homemade pizza world – layering kale leaves on top or at least near the top of a pizza creates a pizza TOPPED WITH KALE CHIPS. Yeah. Fuck yeah, vegan kale chip pizza
that’s the name of my new tumblr account! What could be better?! No, seriously. What could be better? I hesitate to say this because of how much I adore it otherwise, but the Daiya is almost superfluous at this point. I would rather eat kale chips than most other foods ever, but we had a whole bag o’ Daiya, and I can’t resist, so on it went!
We rounded out our pizza party with a couple slices of Choco Orange cashew cheesecake from Camros, just because. Wow, just. Wow. Seriously cacao-y, orangey, cheesecake-y and decadent. I’m not a huge fan of flavoured cheesecakes, my choice usually being a plain ol’ lemony cashew ‘cake, but orange + cacao totally hit the spot.
