As usual, prior to a big cleanse, I like to make some of my favorite things. Well, Monday starts a cleanse, so I decided I would make some indulgent pizza for dinner.
4 of my nephews were supposed to be coming over and were unable to make it, so I had actual dairy cheese in the home and figured since my fiance and daughter are not allergic, I would have them get the full experience today.
I learned after the last pizza dough make that when I add the yeast – it is best not to add it to HOT water, rather, let it cool down to warm. Well, the dough came out beautifully and rose to perfection.
I also decided to lightly oil the parchment and season it with some garlic salt and dried basil.
My daughter’s pizza was first. She has a tomato allergy and did not care for the pesto sauce last time. She just wanted cheese, (vegan) applewood sausage, and a huge pile of olives.
My fiance’s got the dairy cheese as well, sauce, sauteed onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms. He also had olives, garlic, and Italian seasoning & (vegan) Italian sausage.
I used vegan mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, sauce, (vegan) Italian sausage, sauteed onions and bell peppers, olives, Italian seasoning and garlic.
I must say they came out really tasty and I am very full. As tasty as it was, I am indeed looking forward to my cleanse. Will share another post on that this weekend.
What are your favorite toppings?
