When I went vegan in 2004, I thought my cheese-pizza-ordering days were over. I knew I could make a vegan cheese pizza at home or order a cheese-less veggie pizza when dining out. But stringy, melty vegan cheese offered at a pizzeria in Memphis? That was never going to happen. But then I ordered my first vegan cheese-covered pie at Mellow Mushroom. The pizza chain began offering Daiya vegan cheese on all of its pies and hoagies back in May. I chose to sub out Daiya for the usual feta on this Mega-Veggie pizza, which was piled high with tofu, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, black olives, tomatoes, broccoli, banana peppers, and artichoke hearts. If you haven't tried vegan cheese in a while, you should know that it's come a long way in the past two years. Daiya, the newest vegan cheese to hit the market, is by far the most authentic-tasting cheese out there. And it melts!
