Woot! Congratulations. What made you become vegan? I always find it interesting to hear how other people got into it.

I was sick for 9 months. and told I would die unless I eat healthier. I was also vegetarian on and off just cause I knew animal murder was wrong.
and while I was sick, animal products made me even sicker. Meat made me throwup and have diharrea, so did pizza, eggs, and anything else my mom tried to feed me.
after I got over mono,
I went to Hellfest and drove a bunch of ppl I barely knew, and became good friends along the way. One guy, Chris X, inspired me to try veganism for moral and health reasons. So I started eliminating animal products one by one from diet (there werent that many to cut out. I always despised milk and other dairy.) Everyone from relatives and friends found out I was vegan and said thats why I am so sick, skinny, and pale. when in fact it was cause I almost died from mononucleosis.
so I Wanted to prove to them and myself that with my new compassionate lifestyle that I could be healthy and strong. thus my quest to start bodybuilding and to remain vegan. my biggest problem was breaking bones from my high-adrenaline activities, so I had to cut back in order to remain injury free and build muscle.

so yepp thats pretty much the story. 8)

Ha ha! I made vegan pizza in my oven! I took a digital pizza picture! :P

As far as the cheesy-ness - I guess it's just so cheesy because my humor rubbed off on it! LOL....ok, that was bad. I use "Follow Your Heart" brand vegan cheese....if you place it under the broiler after everything is cooked, in about a minute, all the cheese is fantastically melted.

OK, so maybe you didn't want to know that much! :wink:

:shock: Perfect!

I have been trying for months to figure out how to melt that stuff! I was starting to think I might need a blow torch! Okay, next pizza is going under the broiler! 8)

Just be sure you bake the pizza with the cheese in the oven first - say 5 - 10 minutes....this warms the cheese and makes it melt easier, otherwise, you'll get pretty dark crusts by the time the broiler melts the cheese! Good luck and Good Eating!
