vegan pizza day 2013

vegan_pizza_ 221vegan_pizza_ 220Vegan pizza day was this past Saturday and as usual we went all out. Joined by Jenn and Scott, we trekked out to Woodland Hills to visit the original Pizza Cookery. We’re huge fans of this restaurant. Not only do they have an old school family atmosphere, they’re also one of the last hold outs serving Follow Your Heart cheese (which I prefer over Daiya). They also have the most amazing cheesy garlic knots. I dream about these damn things. Which is all to say, it’s worth the drive out there, even if it’s 100 degrees out. We all split a southwestern pizza, which had a bbq pizza sauce and vegan bbq chicken. Good stuff. Great way to start the day.

They had a bunch of specials for the occasion including the infamous macaroni & cheese calzone. Unfortunately, the specials were all kind of a let down. I was super excited about the new trinity pizza topped with cashew cheese but it was severely lacking with no sauce and just a thin layer of cheese. The peach pizza was the biggest hit of the bunch, but more of a dessert than anything. Mostly we just enjoyed the drinks and good company.

I can’t get enough of their deep dish pizza, which really means I can eat about two slices before feeling like I’m going to explode but they’re so good.

It was quite a pizza adventure. Maybe next year we’ll have our own pizza party.

    I’m with you on Follow Your Heart cheese being better than Daiya (although I was not a fan of the new FYH shreds I tried)! Pizza Cookery is so great.

    I definitely vote for pizza party at your place next year!

      I have no idea who made up vegan pizza day, but any excuse for pizza is good enough for me.

    I went to Pizza Cookery one time but didn’t get the rolls. Do they still cut the pizza into strips? I thought that was kind of hard to eat.

    I still haven’t had a chance to try Masa or Mohawk yet.
