Or does it?
Yes, yes it does.
After finally devouring the rest of my chili, I had to make something else. After eyeing Daiya for a long time, I decided to give it a try. I woke up this morning and thought "pizza margherita!", so pizza margherita is what I had.
Farm fresh tomatoes, fresh local basil, garlic and Daiya mozzarella. The verdict? Daiya is awesome! It tastes, smells, and has a stretch similar to the real deal. My mom tried it and she even said it tasted like real cheese. It definitely lives up to the hype.
There really isn't a recipe for this. I just stretched out another ball of Trader Joe's whole wheat dough and spread it with a thin layer of sauce, thinly sliced tomato, basil leaves, minced garlic, and seasoned with dried oregano, red pepper flakes, and S&P. I popped it in the oven at 400 for around 10 minutes and it was perfect. It is reminiscent of the pizza I had in my pre-vegan days, but fresh, healthy and not loaded with grease.
Now, I'm normally a 2 piece girl, but while I was putting the leftovers away a piece called out to me. It was loud and pleaded with me to eat it, and well, I couldn't say no. My stomach and tastebuds thank me. I love when ridiculously simple and easy dishes come out tasting amazing.
