It's day three of my cookbook challenge & the first pick of the day was Vegan With a Vengeance again!
The random number generator threw page 130 at me - Pizza Sauce. Well this left me with a bit of a dilemma as of course you can't JUST make pizza sauce. I don't know if this is cheating (but they are my rules & I've decided it isn't!) but I've picked recipe #2 today by myself & it's the Pizza Base recipe also from Vegan With a Vengeance. I've decided this counts as a challenge because I've never actually made my own pizza base before...
...in fact I still haven't. I got an IUD fitted today & they weren't lying when they said it was gunna hurt, I spent most of today in bed with a hot water bottle and a Gilmore Girls DVD! Thankfully Mr VeganInBrighton took the day off work to look after me & was happy to take on today's cooking challenge.
Yay for Mr VeganInBrighton, I knew I married him for a reason!
I was in bed during the sauce & dough making but the newly vegan & not used to cooking Mr VeganInBrighton assured me that the recipe was easy to follow, Isa's essay on how to make dough was really helpful & it all came together really fast. The sauce on it's own was really delicious although he did reduce the salt by 1/4 teaspoon as we don't often use the amount of salt called for in recipes.
Here he is saucing up the pizza base.
Our pizza pre-oven...
...the whole pizza's covered in Super Melting Edam Style Cheezly & Redwoods Ham Style Slices. My half also has 1/4 mushrooms & 1/4 pineapple.
Here's the beauty post oven...
...and on my plate!
This was some awesome pizza & Mr VeganInBrighton enjoyed making it so much that I think we're going to invest in a pizza stone so that we can make even better pizzas.
Something else exciting that happened today was that the box of goodies I ordered from Vegan Store arrived.
I got two Go Max Go Twilight bars (ready to make deep fried 'mars' bars!), some Lazy Day Foods Iced Fruit Cake Slices, a new milk chocolate style bar from Moo Free & some UK made vegan marshmallows. Yum!
I'll be back in the kitchen tomorrow for more surprise cooking fun but for now I'm going to have a good lie down on the sofa with my awesome husband!
