Making Up Some Pizza

I know you aren’t going to believe me, but I have yet to use Daiya cheese. I’ve had it before at restaurants, but have not cooked with it myself. My just vegetarian roommates have been making pizza like crazy, so I decided to give the Daiya a try and make my own vegan pizza.


I made 2 pizzas with the cornmeal crust you can get at Whole Foods. Those are my favorite and saves a ton of time not making your own crust! I guess it’s the chef in me, but I can’t just buy some jarred tomato sauce, throw on the cheese and call it a day. I made my own tomato sauce from a can of fire-roasted tomatoes. Yum! It’s sort of half from scratch so it’s super easy and fast. Why not make your own? It’s great for pasta too!


Fire-roasted Tomato Sauce

14.5 oz can of organic fire-roasted tomatoes

1 tablespoon of soy sauce

1 tablespoon of balsalmic vinegar

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

Nice dash of dried oregano, basil, marjarom, thyme, and black pepper

Simmer until while combined.

For toppings I sauteed some mushroom in balsamic vinegar and a pinch of sea salt, and topped one pizza with those and IMG_1922fresh basil. The other pizza I put on some fresh tomatoes and Fakin’ Bacon. Don’t know why, it just sounded good. So I turned on the oven, fried up the bacon, and layed out my toppings.

IMG_1924Then smothered them in two kinds of Daiya cheese. The Italian style and Cheddar style.

15 minutes in the oven and I was set. I haven’t made pizza in so long, but I must say this was the best vegan pizza I’ve ever had! I am now a Daiya believer. This cheese melted like no other and tasted like really cheese.IMG_1925

I love me some vegan pizza! I’m one happy girl!

    i haven’t tried daiya either. It would be so much easier if whole foods would just sell it already! wtf.

    But the pizza looks good! i definitely will pick up a cornmeal crust at whole foods next time.

    I LOVE daiya. I bought 5 lb bags of it that are sitting in my freezer. Ive made grilled cheese with it (YUM!), enchiladas, and eggplant parm. Its awesome.
