Happy Vegan MoFo 2014, everyone! I am very excited to kick off my theme for this year, Disney movies. I’ll have a good mix of old and new, plus popular and obscure Disney films to feature yummy dishes from.
To start off, we’ll stick with a 90’s classic, Toy Story. In the original movie, Woody and Buzz Lightyear get stranded in a gas station, but manage to snag a ride to the Pizza Planet restaurant/arcade in search of their owner, Andy. I’ve always loved the idea of this kind of space-themed Chuck E. Cheese, so it inspired me to make pizza from it!
Since most kids seem to drift towards classic cheese pizza, I decided to lay low on the veggies and keep to the theme. I was quite proud of this pizza, due to everything being homemade.
I used a whole wheat crust (which Peter proclaimed delicious), oil-free pizza sauce, and cashew mozzarella cheese with a sprinkle of fresh basil from my windowsill. The pizza sauce turned out a bit on the sweet side, but everything else was great.
The crust was chewy and used only whole wheat flour, so there was no guilt with making it. I was skeptical about the cheese, but once baked it firmed up and had a good texture for those craving cheese pizza, but not wanting to splurge on store-bought vegan cheeses. I may play around with the agave ratios in the sauce next time I make this, but I’ll definitely be baking up this pizza again.
