A Vegan’s Journey – Friends and Pizza

Zoe Carriere - Mother, Teacher, Vegan

Hi Greenfoodies,

I just wanted to speak a little about the importance of friends.  I have some amazing people in my life, and have recently acquired some “gourmet” friends-friends who really enjoy food, wining and dining as much as I do.  It is such a pleasure to have long, leisurely meals and discuss everything from politics to relationships while sipping a fruity Sauvignon Blanc. There are also the friends who call, just to see if everything is ok, or the friends who listen after a difficult week. There is something special about such friendships as they are deeply fulfilling and nourishing to the soul.  I’m giving a shout out to my friends, everyday you make me smile.

I have found the most delicious pizza recipe for vegetarians and people trying to avoid bread or other heavy carbohydrates. Something to be shared amongst friends.  Enjoy!
