We Eat A Lot of Pizza 🍕

Growing up my father worked for corporate Domino’s Pizza and later owned his own stores. Throughout the years, I worked as a customer service representative, delivery driver, and administrative assistant for my dad’s Domino’s Pizza stores. To say I’ve eaten a lot of pizza 🍕 may be an understatement. Back in those days though, I didn’t care that pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner wasn’t in the best interest of my health. 😂 I’m trying to teach my niece that too, but you know teenagers!

Statistics say that the average American eats 46 slices of pizza a year.

The Sauce by Slice

Pizza – Rated #1 Food on Planet Earth!

I think everyone can agree though that pizza is just about the most d*mn delicious food on the planet (as judged by my taste buds, that is). Statistics say that the average American eats 46 slices of pizza a year. However, another statistic said we eat 40 pies a year, so now I’m left confused about how they came up with that statistic.

Pizza Friday’s

Nevertheless, we eat a lot of pizza. This is clearly evidenced in our current household as well. In our house we try to have pizza and watch a movie every Friday of the week. It has become a much anticipated weekly tradition for the kids (and us adults love having a night off from cooking and dishes).

When Possible, Make A Whole Food Plant-based Pizza

Since pizza is most often laiden with dairy and animal fat, sodium, oil, refined flour, and preservatives – the health benefits of the tomatoes and vegetable toppings are overshadowed. While I succumb to the greasy stuff sometimes, I have been working on fine tuning my own 100% whole food plant-based (WFPB) pizza so I can enjoy pizza on friday as well, while feeling good about it. I have two other recipes that go with this pizza that you will want to do as well to keep it WFPB : Crispy Thin Chickpea Flour Pizza Crust and Oil-free Pizza Sauce.

My favorite pizza is a Hawaiian with jalapenos, but since I avoid meat, I dressed up this version with more hot peppers 😉 . I don’t always go completely cheese free, but I like to avoid dairy as it makes me break out! I have noticed even when I put light cheese on a pizza, it really isn’t even worth it if the sauce and other toppings are top notch. With this recipe, even carnivores won’t mind that the recipe is vegan. 😋

Habanero Heat – Only If You Dare!

The way I have topped this plant-based pizza yields a sweet and very spicy flavor! If you want to reduce the heat, do not use Habanero peppers and use less Jalapeno. Don’t feel limited to the peppers I have listed here. I reckon this plant-based pizza would taste pretty good with sweet peppers as well. However, if you can eat it the same way, you are certain to get a nice hot pepper buzz! Be ready to drink some water…
