Pizza Night

Pizza Night is much like Taco Night. Unplanned yet still great whenever it happens. It generally accompanies Sabres games. Again, there is only this singular picture, because I did not think to take a picture of the pizza in its entirety until well after half of it had already been consumed. We generally will switch up the veggies and the fake meat, and lately it’s been dependent on what pizza-friendly vegetables we have been getting from the farm share (which sadly, this is our last week of it for the season, which makes me very sad). This time, it was fairly simple, with just chopped green pepper and tempeh pan-fried in hot sauce and BBQ sauce.

We bought the dough from a local pizzeria (see, here in Buffalo and it’s suburbs there is a pizza place practically on every corner), let it warm on top of the stove while the oven was preheating to 475, and then stretched it out to fit the pizza pan. Then, regardless of what toppings we use, we first bake the crust alone. It helps it to not become soggy while cooking, and gives it just a little bit more of that desired crispiness in the crust. Then, we coat the crust with a thin layer of olive oil, and sprinkle on garlic powder and sesame seeds. Sesame seeds on a crust is one of the most amazing things ever. Next comes the sauce, and then whatever cheese-like substitute we decided to use. Most of the time it is a sprinkling of nutritional yeast, but sometimes we will throw on Daiya too. Then comes the veggies and the mock meat. We usually bake the pizza for 8 to 9 minutes at 500 degrees, and it turns out perfect every time! Now if only we could teach ourselves how to NOT eat pizza until we feel like we are going to puke…
