Happy taste buds

February 4, 2010

Have you ever seen a better looking “pizza” pie?
My guess is probably yeah no.
Stemmed from the great lookin’ vegan pizzas over at Ohh May, I decided to create my own worthy contender. And no pizza would be complete without Ohh May’s own secret ingredients:
Step 3: Humnut Cheese
– 2-3 tbsp hummus
– 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
– A pinch of turmeric if you like your cheese yellow
-water to thin

Step 5: TAHINI
Don’t forget it!

Honestly, these make the pizza!

When I started combining ingredients, I knew I wanted something that would taste great with the hummus/nutritional yeast mixture and what would go better than brussel sprouts? (Yes, I’m sure a lot of things would go well, but B.S.’s are my FAVORITE things… hehe, I like their initials…) And I did not have any tomato paste or other tomato related products to make red sauce…

Getting back on topic, I shredded, combined with apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt, and roasted some B.S. in the oven at 400 degrees. Whilst my green loves were wilting away, I topped an Alvarado Street Sprouted Wheat Torilla with the hummus mixture. When the brussel babies were cooked to my liking, I grabbed them from the oven and scattered them onto the torilla/hummus combo. Then came the tahini. Folks, if you haven’t tried tahini, try it. If you haven’t eaten it on a pizza, do it now.

 

Into the oven, again, went the pizza for a few minutes, just to crisp. When thouroughly crisped, I topped the pizza pie with fresh Italian parsley and sliced green onions. And then a salad.

 
And what pizza, or pizza-look alike, would be complete without one two three glasses of wine?
I may have indulged a little too much with this one. The wine wasn’t even that good… 
Today’s early morning MMA Cardio Kickboxing class was unusually difficult, probably due to the glass of red.
Verdict? 
I thought this was the best tasting pizza that has ever been placed upon my taste buds. My boyfriend, the meat eater, had to agree too! 
Mae, you are a genious!
