Nothing fueled the fun like a good, old-fashioned end-of-the-week pizza night. Whether ordering in or making pies from scratch, there was always something deeply satisfying and comforting about sharing such doughy deliciousness with friends. Unfortunately, that tradition of sorts occurs much more infrequently these days. But funnily enough, most of my pizza consumption still occurs on Fridays--perhaps an unconscious ode to those vaguely celebratory gatherings from adolescence. Such was the case today. In my laziness, I had a small pie made to order from a nearby pizza vendor that recently began to offer Daiya mozzarella as an alternative to cheese. My veggie-covered pizza was a delicious combination of mushrooms, red onions, artichokes, olives, bell peppers, and tomatoes atop a whole wheat base. From the crisp, brick oven-roasted crust to melty vegan "cheese" to chunky vegetable fixings, the pie was quite the tasty end to a long week. I'll save the cooking for tomorrow.
