VPS - BBQ Soy Curls, Tempeh Bacon, Roasted Garlic, Sundried Tomatoes

So, this blog has pretty much become a vegan pizza blog and I apologize for that. The holidays are always crazy, add that to the fact that I started a new job (and ended a long-running one) and I’m sure you’ll forgive me. I hope to resume real cooking again in the next few weeks.

Anyway, my wife has been feeling under the weather so we’ve had a lot of soups and mushy foods lately. She is feeling much better today so we decided to resume our weekly tradition. That also meant that I didn’t want to experiment too much. But, then I realized I was out of tomato sauce!

No fear, some roasted garlic (and oil) came to the rescue. On top of that some well-placed sundried tomatoes and BBQ-soaked soy curls. I then poured the soaking liquid on top of it all – a little thinner than I wanted but it ended up working just fine. Top that all with Daiya and some chopped tempeh bacon and you have yet another delicious vegan pizza.

VPS – Calzone – Pineapple, Tempeh Bacon, Roasted Tomatoes

VPS - Calzone - Pineapple, Tempeh Bacon, Roasted Tomatoes

After a recent, ahem, transgression by my newly-pregnant wife landed her a cheese-filled calzone I set out to make my own so when you got the craving, I could be there – and be dairy free. So, we flipped our pizza Sunday nights over and made calzones this week.

She LOVES pineapple calzones (and pizza, too) so I knew what she wanted without even asking. Tempeh bacon gives everything that subtle smoky flavor and nice texture and a few roasted tomatoes for good measure (and moisture).

A MUCH better result this time than the last time I made calzones (I won’t even dignify them with a link), with credit going to Diaya, versus the previously-used Teese. It also uses far less Daiya this way, so it’s likely we’ll continue making calzones in lieu of pizza.
