VeganMoFo Day 29 Daring Bakers Challenge

My very first Daring Bakers Challenge. Lets just say this was very interesting. I was thrilled that it was vegan so no substitutions were necessary, but a pizza challenge where you had to toss the pizza was a bit hysterical to say the least. DH took about 10 pictures of me tossing and never got the pizza in the picture. It was too high and I was too low. Yes, he did finally get one picture that makes me look like the wicked witch of the west, but hey it is me tossing a pizza. I told him look at me, gross take another one and I will try and smile. It didn't happen. We couldn't get both of us in the picture. lol... seriously.







Here the little pizza doughs getting ready to rest for the night.

Italian sausage, pepperoni, bell pepper, spinach, and olives with basic pizza sauce with yummy Follow Your Heart Cheese.

We had to make 2 pizzas so here is our second one. This pizza has zucchini, spinach, bell pepper, pepperoni, and Follow Your Heart Cheese.

After all that I forgot to take a picture of the cooked pizzas. Guess we were too busy eating. :o)

Your dough looks great! I made the gluten free version, but I'm going to attempt tossing one of these days.

I've never made pizza dough, but I bet I'd looove the flipping part. I get so excited even about flipping pancakes.

Yay for your first DB challenge!! This was a nice one to start off with since nothing needed to be veganized. I think your tossing pic looks great!! And I don't blame you for forgetting to take a photo of the finished product!

The picture is actually really awesome! It shows your 100% concentration and commitment to the dough tossing!
The raw pizzas look great, I bet they were even better cooked! :P

Hi! Great pizza pictures...mine our way dark and orange and blurry (my husband couldn't get a clear one!). The "Where's the Beef" stew is in the newer version of Cooking The Whole Foods Way (maybe 2007?). If you send me an email I'd be happy to send you the recipe this weekend. :)
