VeganMoFo day #31 - candy corn & pizza

This is the last day of VeganMoFo and I'm sad that it's ending. I have been to almost all of the blogs doing VeganMoFo, I have less than 20 left to go. I loved reading about all of the different vegan food and perspectives. I'm really looking forward to mofo next year.

Seeing all of the halloween themed food inspired me to make a Jack-o-Lantern Pizza. Not my own idea, I either saw it on a blog, TV or both. I had been planning on making a pizza this week because we got a shipment of Teese. I made a pesto/red sauce/teese/basil/pineapple pizza. To make it more pumpkinish, I slathered it with way more fake cheeze than I would normally use. I love a pesto pizza!

We also made a white Teese pizza with a more normal amount of cheeze.

I think Teese is very similar to Follow Your Heart. FYH doesn't smell quite as much, so I'm going with that. Plus it's already in my co-op. I love white cheddar Cheezly too, but we don't get it too often. I think we're finally done trying Scheeze. 3rd time has convinced me that it is not my cup o' tea. Galaxy foods makes vegan rice slices that I like.

The crust we used was a Vicolo cornmeal crust.

I made candy corn using Melisser's recipe. They were good. So good that I lost count of how many I've eaten.
I got bored part way through forming them and made some into a ball. I think that was my way of taking a time out. Not done with it yet, got more forming to do.

Here is Scoatt with a "lion cut" that I gave him this summer while I was in VT. The hair on Scoatt's neck so long that it has to be trimmed. Otherwise, he can't clean himself.

I love your Halloween pizza, Bethany! It's so super creative, plus it looks so delicious!
The candy corn is pure awesomeness! I'm diggin' the candy corn ball! :)
Scoatt looks so happy with his haircut!

i love that candy corn ball, and i love how the other candy corn is pointing at it.

i call the "lion cut" scoatt has a "poodle cut." well, not really, but one of my friends gave her all-white cat that haircut and it looked just like a poodle.

Ooh, fun pizza! Hooray for candy corn! I'm glad you enjoyed them.

That picture of your cat is too much. His expression is exactly that which I would expect Kunin to have if I came anywhere near him with shears :o)
I really need to make that candy corn. B loves the stuff and the ones from the store are just loaded with crap.

Oooooh yummy looking pizzas - the Pumkin one is ace. You have way more patience than me for making all those Candies - kudos to you.
My Fizzgig has the same problem as Scoatt - in the fact that they are both big fur balls and need to be trimmed regularly.
Well done on all your MoFo'ing - I've LOVED reading your blog and I'm glad I found you, and thanks for all your ace comments too.

*high fives*

Ooooh yeah - you should get a subcribe via email option on your blog because I am lazy.

Jeni - ask and ye shall receive. Anything for you, I added a subscribe via email link on the side bar.

My patience ran out and the bowl of unformed and undyed candy corn is sitting on the counter being picked at.
