Mmmmmm, Dinner!

My girl has been laid up, out of commission, gimpy, etc for about 8 weeks now. (fell wrong, tweaked knee, drs can't figure out what's wrong and don't seem to be looking too hard, whatevs.) Honestly, it frickin sucks, but some good has come out of it. We've been together almost 6 years and in that time, I've gotten pretty used to her spoiling me in the kitchen (as evidenced by the recent addition of some grrrl fluff.) Anyways, her being out of service means that I've been cooking all the time now.

I have always prided myself on my prowess in the kitchen, especially since I've been veggie since before it was easy to get veggie foods anywhere but at home. (1991 to be exact) But damn oh damn can that AK47 cook like the dickens, so I let her do it. Well now I get to have the fun again...and tonight I made the MOST delish pizza.

fresh thin cracker crust lightly coated with olive oil then sprinkled with nutritional yeast (if you have never had nutritional yeast, I strongly recommend it, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.) Nutritional yeast is my secret weapon in the kitchen, nutty, rich, savory, it 'cheezes out' when wet and warm. *amazing on popcorn*
anywayse, nutritional yeast sprinkled on crust, the toppings were shredded carrots, little broccoli florets, rainbow chard (chopped including stems), and raw pumpkin seeds. For 'cheese' I used vegan alternative mozzarella style (it melts!)

HOLY. SHIT. I am, in fact, done writing so that I may run to the kitchen and smorg my last two pieces.

Nutritional yeast can be found in the bulk section of most decent health food stores. you won't regret trying it, i assure you.

that sounds like the perfect pie!
I bet your special lady appreciates you taking over in the kitchen while she's out of commission - sounds like you are feeding her the goods too!
I love nutritional yeast - there's nothing else like it!
mmmmmmmm indeed!
