Pizza!

It seems that others, upon discovering that one is vegan, often lament the sadness that must be life without pizza.

Allow me to quote Dan Piraro from an old VegNews magazine:
As an Italian American, I know a little about pizza. My grandparents immigrated to America from Sicily at the turn of the century with little more than the clothes on their backs, too many children and a pizza recipe. I grew up eating my grandmother's pizza — real Italian pizza — and guess what? It didn't have cheese on it. Yes, you read that correctly — Italian pizza does not always have cheese. Furthermore, it doesn't always have meat, either.
Anyhow, they only wish that *their* cheesy pizzas were this good. It was loaded with zucchini, mushrooms, olives, artichokes, peppers, 'homemade' seitan, and some fennel. It isn't yet baked in the foto, of course. Really, we would recommend using slightly fewer toppings in order to bake everything well into the middle — but once you start, it's hard to stop!

In conclusion: yes, vegans eat pizza. :)

yum! I've never had seitan on pizza before - how was it? usually after I load on all the veggies there's no room for anything else...

the seitan on the pizza was great, we made it quite spicy. however, I think we had too many toppings -- as good as they all were.

you cant just take every "indian spice" from your rack and throw it into your chana masala, ya know?

mmmm, veggieeeessss...
