Pizza and Breadsticks

Tonight for dinner I made pizza with soy cheese and seitan pepperoni. (I didn't not make the pepperoni) I took a chance and used the pizza dough recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance. I figured there isn't really a way to mess that up.

One recipe yields two 14 inch pizzas. Since we didn't need two, instead of halving the recipe I decided to make bread sticks. I squeezed the dough into little bread sticks shapes and sprinkled them with Parmesan "Cheese" from The Vegan Family Cookbook. I also used a little bit of the leftover soy mozzarella.

I really liked this crust recipe and will use it again. It worked great for the bread sticks as well. It makes a nice chewy crust. The dough rises for one hour and then you punch it down. It's best to let it rest at least 10 minutes or longer but that's it. It's very quick compared to other dough recipes I have.

I'm still not sure what to think about Vegan with a Vengeance but for tonight I'm happy.

1 pizza is never enough in our house! Looks good though, and I do love breadsticks. Interesting thoughts on VWAV, I love the alfreda sauce and peanut sauce from that book, not sure what else I've tried...I'll keep you posted.
