VeganMoFo: It's Amore, Fool

Two things you need to know about me is: 1) I'm crazy and 2) I'm poet. Three things poets love: sex, booze, and late night foodstuffs. While in Madison, WI this year for the National Poetry Slam, I spent many a night outside of Ian's. It was the spot for all the poets. I saw the slices people were getting. Three pizzas I had to veganize: macaroni and cheese, kalamata tapenade and roasted red pepper, and pesto portobello. Now the crazy...

Setting: my kitchen. Soundtrack: Dashboard Confessional's The Swiss Army Romance. Mission: pizza three different ways. Oh, and my fridge is already filled to the max with leftovers.

First up kalamata tapenade and roasted red pepper stromboli. I spread the tapenade over the dough, topped with Teese, and added strips of roasted pepper. Very delicious.




Next I made the mac and cheeze pizza. Word booty. It looks better if you don't walk away. This pie is what I like to call "well done." I halved my mac and cheeze recipe and topped with FYH cheddar, Teese, and cracked black pepper. This picture is darker because the lighting in my kitchen is horrible at night.




I'm saving the best for last, yo! This was amazing. I made pesto portobello calzones. For the marinara I combined 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes, garlic powder, lemon juice, pepper, sugar, and Italian seasoning. I spread some marinara, topped with Teese, portabellos and pesto. So friggin good!




Well, the next few days will have nothing to do with cooking. I have some leftovers to work through.

Oh. My. God. You need to move to Minnepaolis and open a pizza kitchen. In my house.

Woman, you are killing me! I think that mac & cheeze pizza is going to play a significant role in my friend & my XBOX 360 weekend...I'm ashamed to admit that ranch may also make an appearance. **eek**

I knew from the blog title this was you - glad to find you!

Yay for the late night food-stuffs. Mmmmm and vodka!
Vodka loves the slightly more tart fruits to blend in drinks with. That's why orange, cranberry, grapefruit go down so nice.
