By the way, I pizza blog in this. In fact, I’m wearing it right now. The more you know.

Now bring out the pizza!

Creamy Vegan Mac & Cheese Pizza, No. 2!

2011-06-04 - Mac & Cheese Pizza No. 2 - 0017

Another vegan mac & cheese pizza!

This recipe is fairly similar to the original, with one key change: instead of adding the macaroni and cheese to the pizza before it’s baked, we added the mac & cheese after the pizza came out of the oven (and more sparingly, too; this pizza is more like a “regular” pizza and less like a carb pie!). Since it isn’t baked twice, the mac & cheese topping is a little creamier and soupier. There’s also some extra cheddar Daiya and margarine hiding under there – along with bits of Lightlife Smart Bacon – for added moisture. (It’s like a white pizza only orange, yo!) Here’s the recipe, give it a try!

fwiw, this was the scene as we sat down to plates loaded with pizza slices and sides of mac & cheese (we made a full recipe, of course! ALWAYS MAKE A FULL POT OF MAC & CHEESE!):

Me: I AM GOING TO GET PREGNANT WITH THIS MAC & CHEESE!

Shane: [looks of horror and revulsion; not just at the thought of sexy time with cheesy pasta, but also – presumably – because neither of us wants children, to the point that this is a condition in our prenup]

Me: I mean I’m going to eat so much that my belly bloats up to where I look pregnant. YOU KNOW, MY BABY BUMP.

Shane: Oh.

And I did.

Mac & Pepperjack Pizza

2011-06-18 - Mac & Pepperjack Pizza - 0015

Vegan macaroni and cheese pizza #3! “Mac & Pepperjack,” as we nicknamed it, is made with Pepperjack Daiya cheese (duh!) and topped with breadcrumbs, baked mac & cheese styley. Between the pasta and the pizza, this pie is like two meals in one. It took the husband a week to finish off the leftovers, what with the way he loaded the mac & cheese on there. Three inches of cheesy goodness? This bad boy is practically a deep dish!

Kalamata Olive Bread Pizza

2011-05-28 - Kalamata Bread Pizza - 0007

Kalamata Olive Bread Pizza, made in the toaster oven! (The pizza, not the bread; you’ll need a bread machine for that!)

This recipe for Kalamata Olive Bread is one of my favorites, and here it’s been improved upon in the only conceivable way one might so polish a masterpiece: ADD DAIYA CHEESE! Immediate success! The tang of the bread complements the mozzarella Daiya and red sauce nicely, and it’s even better when toasted to a lovely brown crisp. I see many more slices in my future. (Also: a kalamata olive pizza crust!)

Of course, you can sub in your own favorite bread recipe; I’ve made quickie toaster pizzas with everything from homemade loafs to french bread to plain old sliced white bread. It’s hard to go wrong when vegan pizza is involved!
