Ever since I ordered a log of Teese a couple weeks ago, I’ve been dreaming of the different ways I can use it. My first choice is pizza, but for whatever reason I didn’t feel like making an entire pizza. I was considering the options yesterday, and I remembered that my mom used to make us English muffin pizzas sometimes on Sunday afternoons. I’ve been wanting to try my hand at homemade English muffins for some time, and a search yielded this recipe from The Urban Vegan. Her pictures look awesome and the recipe seemed sturdy, so last night when I got home I mixed up the starter and let it sit overnight. I cooked ’em up this afternoon, and check out the nooks and crannies!
The recipe made 16, and it’s infinitely cheaper than store-bought muffins, which normally aren’t vegan anyway. I put most of them in the freezer and can’t wait to eat them toasted with earth balance and jam.
I made the pizza sauce from VWAV, which is a nice, easy recipe, and shredded up a bit of the Teese. Probably by now everyone has seen the “does it melt?” before and after pictures all over the internet, but just in case you haven’t witnessed the amazingness, here it is.
I have also successfully answered the question “Does parchment paper turn black under the broiler?”.
Yeah, so maybe my Teese melted a bit too much. Or maybe I put too much on. Either way, I call this a total success and Teese has my endorsement.
I enjoyed my pizzas with broccoli dipped in homemade ranch. This is such a kiddy meal. Although as I child I would have never eaten raw broccoli trees.
