Even though I am on the mend from my accident, I still can’t get to the grocery store. Previously I did 90% of the shopping, since my husband often works late. He’s been a good sport about trying to get to the store once a week, but it sometimes doesn’t happen. Thank goodness we had a well-stocked pantry beforehand. But my supply of lentils and beans is slowly dwindling.
On Sunday afternoon we were watching the Raiders play the Browns on tv (does anyone else follow the Raiders? What a game!). We were getting hungry, but our fridge was pretty bare except for condiments and a Brita water filter and some Red Stripe beer. We didn’t want to spend too much money, and Reggie Smith had been advertising $10 pizzas from Pizza Hut every commercial break during the game so we figured what the heck.
I knew the thin and crispy crust from Pizza Hut was vegan, but I wasn’t sure what to expect. We ordered online and I specified that I wanted all of the veggies. There was even a checkbox for no cheese, which surprised me. When it arrived I expected a few sparse vegetables scattered around but it actually had a pretty decent amount of veggies. The crust was no heck (it kind of tasted like soup crackers…), but for $10 for a large pizza it wasn’t half bad. I washed it down with a beer or two and finished watching the game.
The next day I had leftovers and I decided to melt some Daiya on the slices under broiler. I also had some leftover sprouts on the side:
Verdict: while there is definitely better delivery pizza options available and Pizza Hut would never be my first choice, this was cheap and perfectly edible and did fine in a pinch.
