Cheese Week: Caribbean-inspired Pizza

The Chef: Lyndsay

The Menu: What better way to begin the week than with oozingly delicious soy-based mozzarella drizzled over Italian-seasoned tomato sauce and an assortment of whole grain crusts—aka pizza? A collard-romaine salad tossed with both yellow and standard-issue orange carrots, ripe avocado, and crunchy corn kernels completed this work of art. With a sparse supply of fresh produce in the VNHQ kitchen, Lyndsay creatively personalized Follow Your Heart's pizza-making kit with a sprinkling of sweet corn, reviving her—and inspiring our—love for Dominican Republic-style pizza.

The Goods: VN's official Cheese Week begins today, and there's no more delicious way to celebrate the completion of the March/April issue than with everyone's childhood favorite: pizza! Thanks to Follow Your Heart's easy-to-follow pizza package, lunch was ready early—a rarity in the VN kitchen. We were all pleased with the magically meltable mozzarella and would recommend it for all your pizza-making needs. Stay tuned this week for more cheesey creations, and be sure to enter our spa-inspired giveaway for your chance to win a wonderful winter pampering package ...

Ooh, cheese week! I'm interested to see what the crew thinks of all the vegan cheeses out there.
