Is Vegan Pizza Worth It?

Pizza has always been cheesy but can you enjoy pizza without the real cheese? The answer is yes and there are two ways to do it:

  1. Use a vegan cheese on the pie. This works but doesn’t melt as well as real cheese and is different in consistency but it might work for you.
  2. My preference is a pie without cheese. You can order these at your local pizzeria. I get crispy crust and put my favorite veggies on it like mushrooms, onions and black olives. The taste is wonderful and I find I don’t miss the cheese.

Using a thin crispy crust cuts back on carbs as well. The cheese less pizzas are sometimes called Tomato Pies.

Vegan and cheese in the same sentence? What’s up? Vegan Mainstream is running a photo contest for the best looking vegan cheeses (non diary cheese). If you are vegan or simply trying to get back on saturated fats and calories from cheese; check out this article. As more people move towards a vegan diet, vegan meats and cheeses are becoming more appetizing. You can have your cake and eat it. In this case it’s having your cheese and eating it.
