mmmm pizza!

I have been dying to try out my pizza stone, which my mum gave me (she didn't want it?? what's wrong with her??) and I had loads of stuff crying out to be put on a big (if not slightly mishapen) sexy pizza.

This was about the best pizza I’ve ever had, it rocked! Even if you’re not vegan I highly recommend putting pesto on your base under the tomato sauce – pesto and pizza really is a match made in pizza heaven!

I cheated a bit because I didn’t have any yeast for the base and I remember when I was younger my mum making one that was more like a savoury scone dough. I googled yeast free dough and this is what I got and it was perfect, soft and doughy and yum.

I topped it with homemade pesto, homemade salsa (which is really mild so doubles as a good tomato sauce), sweetcorn, spicy vegan sausage (from this awesome recipe), green peppers, fresh tomatoes and some shredded cheezly mozzarella style cheese. Normally I don’t bother with the cheese but I just fancied some today and this is the only fake cheese I can stomach, albeit only in small amounts. Then just sprinkled it with oregano and served it with a big glass of vino and a couple of episodes of Dirty Sexy Money! Heaven.

oh and 1 tip - buy a freakin rolling pin! rolling out dough with a glass is hard work!!

"Makes 3 Dozen Cookies"

Unless your name is Sal and you scoop the dough out with an ice cream scoop!! So instead of 3 dozen Maple Walnut Cookies (recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance), I got 1 dozen big mamas!

One fell apart, so I had to eat it, it was the right thing to do!
