These pizzas were so good! This was the first time I opted to use Daiya Vegan Cheese substitute on my pizzas, too. It was actually pretty decent. To be honest, it turned out better than I had feared. I’m not completely sold on the product (a lot like tofu sausages – too much like the real thing – ewwie to me), but I would probably buy it again in the future if a recipe I needed to make required cheese. Lasagna comes to mind. *scratches head*
I soaked the fruit for the pizzas and the smoothie. ♥
Chopped-up the peppers. I had Elflings sneaking chunks when my back was turned. hehe ♥
This was the first time in a long time that I made a tomato sauce for pizzas. We usually just use a mashed bean or guacamole base. To be honest, my youngest didn’t like the taste of the organic tinned tomatoes. I don’t blame her. It’s really hard to wrap the palate around the tinned-stuff flavour, after we’ve been cooking everything else fresh and from scratch. I won’t be doing that again. ♥
These shells look so good! They’re just naan bread rolled a little thinner. ♥
This is the Daiya we used. It was well-worth the $5 we paid. ♥
The first batch of pizzas was a combination of peppers, spinach and Daiya shreds.
All baked, you can see the shreds melted just like dairy cheese.
The second batch was a combination of a guacamole base, spinach, fresh tomato chunks and Daiya shreds.
Once again, all baked, it looks like any other traditional type pizza. This was our favourite blend, especially for my youngest. ♥
