I was on a mission to find Teese Vegan Cheese and I am happy to report that I found my supplier: Pizza Pi Vegan Pizzeria in Seattle’s University District, which is only 65 miles away from us, but our love for pizza knows no bounds! Actually, we were in the area for another reason). And Pizza Pi deserves a shout out here – we were in Sidecar (almost next door) stocking up on vegan goodies and I mentioned that we were stopping at Pizza Pi next and the clerk informed me that they wouldn’t be open for another hour. The owner (I think) happened to be in Sidecar at that moment and he offered to let me in and sell me some Teese cheese. I was so grateful that I bought an armload!
So, we enjoyed cheese on our pizzas for the first time in years, I think. Straight out of the package, the Teese tasted only slightly better than Vegan Gourmet mozzarella. But, it melts beautifully and it tastes so much better melted on the pizza. We loved it – even the girl, the harshest resident critic of all things vegan.
This is my favorite pizza: an olive oil base on our favorite dough with Italian seasoning and crushed red chili peppers, fresh sliced tomatoes, fresh garlic, fresh basil, fresh sliced mushrooms and Kalamata olives with about 5 ounces of ooey gooey Teese Cheese melted on top of it:
And the classic pizza with our favorite pizza sauce, fresh sliced tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh garlic, fresh basil, fresh sliced mushrooms, Kalamata olives and sliced red onion. And, of course, another 5 ounces of Teese Cheese:
J even made his version of a Hawaiian Pizza with the leftover dough, crushed pineapple and Yves Canadian Bacon slices:
So, are you hungry yet? 🙂
