Okay, so the title may be a bit drastic but we all felt awful today. Sickness (colds, ear infections and a bout of strep) reins in our house currently. Feels like a never ending circle of feeling under the weather. Besides the throbbing head pain and screaming children today went rather well. Breakfast of oatmeal and frozen fruit was gobbled up by the Two year old. Lunch was picked at and the Pizza dinner was alright.
Pizza without cheese seems to be a tricky thing. To those of us who are accustomed to the cheesy variety the above specimen must look horribly naked. In reality cheese-less pizza can be a very big disappointment if done wrong. Above was tonight's attempt at a "Basic" pizza, something we would eat on a busy night. It was good but felt lacking. To close to the Thing that SHOULD have cheese, right? I think to look at pizza in a vegan way you need to change your whole mind on what pizza should entail. Next Monday (Monday is designated Pizza Night) I'm thinking about trying something along the lines of a pizza with Italian TYPE toppings but not pizza toppings. Jardiniere or a spicy pickled veg salad as a topping for example. We shall see. I will be pondering the "Basic" pizza topping this week. On to a hopefully better (feeling and tasting) day tomorrow.
