there's always room for pizza

i couldda been a ramone because i love pizza so much. i like my music short, loud, and to the point. i'm always brushing my bangs outta my face, so i'd have fit right i think, even with the booze, women, and drugs. then i might have gotten sick of that after a while, but i'm pretty sure i'd still love pizza and punk rock. this was a very simple pizza to make: pillsbury (chemical but vegan) pizza crust, baked plain for about 10 minutes, then i piled on toppings of sauteed zucchini, roasted red peppers, and orange bell peppers. cooked it for another 7 minutes and broiled it for about 2 minutes. yes--there's the sauce underneath and it's so simple to make i swear you'll slap yourself:

i wanna be your joey ramone pizza sauce

1 can tomato sauce
1 big ol' T of ms. dash sundried tomato and basil blend
1t granulated garlic
1t crushed red pepper flakes
dash o' salt
1t olive oil

yep, that's it. mix the ingredients together and spread on yer dough. if you use an 8 oz. can o' sauce, you'll have enough for two pizzas. or you can make some bread sticks and dip them in the remaining sauce too. pile that pizza with the veggies you love and watch rock n' roll high school.

late note: about the mac n' cheez post from a few days ago--that is the very special meal that we eat to remember my spouse's sister melanie (OBM). you're supposed to pile the beans on top of the mac n' cheez and eat it that way.

what are your favorite pizza toppings?

The Ramones and a Sleater-Kinney reference all in one post! Yes! Plus I love pizza! I am too lazy to make pizza dough, so I really thankful for the pre-made vegan options out there. I always sprinkle a bunch of nooch on top too :)

Hell yea! Pizza is so punk rock. Joey would be proud. I had pizza for lunch and it was sooo tasty. My friend started a vegan catering lunch service, and she made me a BBQ mock chicken personal pan pizza. OMG!

my favorite pizza topping would have to be either broccoli or onions :)

Thanks for the recipe - looks great!
