Oh, I forgot to post pictures of the kick-ass pizzas we made last weekend. I usually get frustrated with making my own pizza dough because it takes so long and because it gets so sticky. But this time I followed Isa's dough recipe and it turned out wonderfully. I know it sounds like I'm all up this cookbook's ass, but I really do love it! Everything I've made from it has been fantastic. Anyway...
The dough recipe made enough for two thin crust pizzas. I even broke out the old pizza stone to bake one of the pies. The first one was topped with fresh tomatoes, tempeh "bacon", purple onions, and Vegan Gourmet mozzarella. This was before it went into the oven:
The second one I took from Vegan With A Vengeance. It's the Isa Pizza, topped with freshly made pesto, tofu "ricotta" cheese (which I added spinach to), and black olives. Here it is before baking:
Here are the slices after baking:
Both pizzas were good, but I really enjoyed the pesto ricotta one. I've never made fresh pesto before, and it was fun to see the bright green basil all crushed up with the garlic and oil. So pretty!
