So who doesn't love pizza? *crickets**crickets*
Exactly my point :)
I put together a list of 20 totally drool-worthy vegan pizza recipes that could even get all the meat eaters you know on their knees begging for more! It's a tough task but completely doable. Thanks to the creativity and genius recipe IQ levels of some of my favorite vegan food bloggers this list was fairly easy to put together.
You might think that this is ridiculous. There is no way a die-heart meat eater would go for any of these. Well, let's test it out.
So your Grandma loves bacon? No biggie. Got Granny covered!
Your cousin twice removed can't live without mozzarella? Easy peasy.
Your half-brother's evil twin's mother-in-law's lover needs pepperoni to be happy? I'm pretty sure he can do without but if really necessary, there is a vegan pepperoni pizza below too ;)
However, these aren't all about making meaty or cheesy pizzas vegan. It's definitely not to fool anyone into thinking that what they are eating is real bacon. It's really just to show the incredible power and versatility that plants have.
I think it's also important to point out that healthy, plant-based pizzas can be more delicious than those found at your typical greasy pizza parlor. I think most people who easily dismiss veganism forget that vegetables or other plants have the ability to make your food infinitely more flavorful without having to add a ridiculous amount of salt, sugar, and flavor-enhancing additives.
Take your time going through this list. Find your favorites, bookmark them, and make them for your friends and family. I think it's about time we redefine what society thinks pizza should taste and look like.
