For a person who’s probably spent 1/3 of 2016 munching on vegan pizza, I sure don’t post about it enough. Except for like my 43273846734647 snaps where I claim that “pizza is life”.
‘Cause it is, really. Which still don’t make the fact that I likely have a pizza snapchat obsession aceptable. Sorry for all the spam if you follow me! Aaaaaand if you don’t (and don’t mind seeing three million pizza related snaps and selfies a day), you can add me on > honeyandfigs.
Anyhoo! I do eat a lot of pizza. Sure not as fancy as this one as I cannot be bothered to make an actual effort 90% of the time buuuuuut vegan pizza nonetheless, which in my books is still a winner!
Don’t let that last statement fool you and think this pizza is actually difficult to make though.
It’s just that I’m lazy beyond words (we’re talking I haven’t done laundry in a solid three weeks and I’m just back from the town center where I had to get me some new undies holla! Adulting is hard) and when I want a pizza I want it NOW. But hey, this one here is very worth the small wait that 10% of the time.
A dough which takes 5 minutes to mix and you don’t have to knead??? CLAP YOUR HANDS AND PRAISE THE HEAVEN! This is what my dreams are made of! (also furry puppies, cookies and Game of Thrones men who cook for me). So crispy, thick and overall luscious!
This, my friends, will change the way you look at pizza. It will make you love it more than you already do (I hope, ’cause I really don’t know what you’re doing here if you don’t like pizza you weirdo), making it hard to stop at one pizza.
‘Cause when it comes to this pizza, the slicing and control portioning parts are out of the question. Go big and eat it all or go home and stop by mine and bring me the pizza. And some napkins to because I’m going to need them with all that CHEDDAR.
Vegan cheddar to be exact. Let’s clap again to this absolutely fabulous plant-based cheese which actually melts and it’s cheaper and healthier than the storebought stuff. Although I’m a big big fan of storebought vegan cheese don’t get me wrong! Love everywhereeeeeeeeee.
This cheedar. Boy, is it going to change your life! I’ve kinda ran out of adjetives to describe cheese so you’ll have to take my word when I say that it’s EPIC. Lengendary if you must. Boy, will they be writing tales about it!
Throw some of your favourite veggies to the mix, a tomato sauce which you dig and some avocado to top it and you’ve got yourself the most awesome meal ever. Also, if you’re feeling reckless you can add some sweetcorn as well but in that case, don’t invite me over.
Confession time here: I hate hate hate sweetcorn. Always did. Is it supposed to be sweet? Is it supposed to go into savoury meals? U ok sweetcorn?
If you want to know the truth, I only ever add sweetcorn to my pictures because it looks pretty all yellow and dainty and cute. Buuuuuuuuuut I gag when it comes to eating it like UGH make up your mind sweetcorn, what are you supposed to be?
Anyway, let me add that it’s just sweetcorn which I hate, not cornflour (yay polenta) or popcorn (hint hint: invite me over for a GoT binge-watching session and make popcorn for both!).
And now that you’ve heard about all this very important info about yours truly, I’ll let you go on with your day. Just make sure it involves pizza in some way. Pretty please I’m begging you.
For your own good, you know.
