Pizza with Meltable Mozzarella



This is a cross over post, intended to get you to enter the contest for Artisan Vegan Cheese, while still including a canned ingredient. This pizza features the meltable mozzarella from the book and canned pizza sauce. This summer I scored a ton of San Marzano tomatoes and happily canned for days on end. As far as the cheese goes, I’ll admit it wasn’t pretty in it’s raw state. My little cookie scoop broke years ago after being shuffled around in a drawer and never used. So to form the cheese into balls, I used two spoons and ended up with lumps adorned with all kinds of weird stringy arms trailing off of them. But when cut a little and clumped on the pizza, you’d never know.



I had a few questions about how I air-dried my cheese, so that’s a photo of my make-shift racking up top. Mmmmm…emetaler!

Last night, Jim and I were discussing our favorite cheeses from the book. This meltable mozz was at the top of his list. I was torn between the brie and the hard gruyere. The subtle differences in the ingredients in the recipes creates astoundingly different tastes, and I can’t rave about this book enough. Enter the contest here for a chance to see for yourself.



Speaking of contests,  we’re on week 2 of our blog tour! Head on over to Bianca’s fantastic blog, Vegan Crunk, and enter to win Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day!

After that, take your lucky magic fingers over to Urban Vegan for yet another chance to win a  copy! Dynise has a fun interview (I had fun anyway…) with us and a contest. What kind of sandwich would you be? Thank you, Dynise!

We’re on the MoFo countdown! Only two more days to go! Then another year to try to catch up on blogs from other participants!

    Here I was thinking that you weren’t posting but instead it was that my Google Reader wasn’t updating your blog. So many posts to catch up on!
    I just got a copy of that book and the mozzarella recipe is the first thing I’m making after I get the rejuvelac going.
