my annual VeganMofo pizza post!

Each VeganMofo, I've done a pizza post showing pictures of pizza I've taken and then accidentally stockpiled over the course of the year. This year I actually did a pretty good job of not stockpiling picture after picture of pizza... in fact, while I think I make pizza at least once a month, I only have one pizza photo for the whole year!

I have recently rediscovered Nomato "Tomato" Sauce. It's a nightshade free tomato sauce that I've been using in everything from BBQ sauces to... you guessed it, pizza sauce! So this pizza, between the Daiya cheese and the Nomato sauce, was basically like a real person's pizza, not one of my crunchy hippy pizzas. (Which I love, but sometimes you just want to be able to eat as close to the real thing as you can.)
It's topped with artichoke hearts, onions, and fresh basil from my garden.

SO just one picture of pizza. BUT I am including something else in this post because it goes hand-in-hand with pizza: BREADSTICKS.
 And not just any breadsticks. Sometimes I get a craving for the delicious, junky Pizza Hut breadsticks I used to love as a kid. I found a recipe online that I use as my base. I just use water, not dried milk and water like they do, and for the topping I substitute nutritional yeast for the parmesan. I still haven't been able to bring myself to use all the oil they call for, since it seems like a lot... though some of my find memories of Pizza Hut breadsticks involve having greasy fingers at the end, so maybe someday I will.
Taste-wise, it's just like the real thing (though a little lighter without all the oil).
