In keeping with my make-it-from-scratch theme for my pizza, I opted to make vegan mozzarella cheese from scratch. I cheated a bit, because I used the recipe from this book: The book is “Artisan Vegan Cheese”, by Miyoko Schinner. The recipe is on page 44, and it’s called “Meltable Mozzarella”.

In The Kitchen: Basic Pizza Sauce

On Monday, when I made pizza, my goal was to make it as much from scratch as possible. While the dough was a challenge, I already knew I could make pizza sauce easily! You can do this yourself, and don’t have to buy some Frankenfood brand in a jar or can. And best of all:
