Donny Osmond Flair

Have you heard of the All-American Prophet,

The blonde haired, blue eyed voice of God?!

With 14 nominations and 9 wins, it's safe to say that The Book of Mormon, Broadway's most popular new musical, dominated the 2011 Tony Awards. We at the VegBerger household were 100% team Mormon, and we needed some way to show our support. Yea, we could make t-shirts, but let's face can't EAT a t-shirt. PIZZA IT IS!

We drew our inspiration from the musical's song, "All American Prophet" and came up with this delicious combination of ingredients which gave the pizza some...Donny Osmond flair.

The All-American Pizza

Pizza Crust, either store-bought or home-made

For the Sauce
3/4 cup Pizza Sauce
1/4 cup smoky BBQ Sauce

1. Mix together and spread on Pizza crust

For the Toppings

Vegan style "Chicken Nuggets", quartered
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
Thinly sliced red onion, to taste
Vegan grated Cheddar cheese (Daiya is always best for PIZZA!)
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Scatter "Chicken" and vegetables on Pizza.
3. Top with Vegan cheese. Garnish with pepper
4. Bake Pizza on middle rack of oven for 10 minutes.
5. If you like a crispier crust, transfer Pizza to lowest rack for 5-7 minutes. If not, keep it where it is for the last 5-7 minutes.

We also made a traditional Margherita pizza with regular pizza sauce, tomatoes, fresh basil, and a sprinkling of black olives. Because let's face it, one pizza is NEVER enough.

The Finished Products!!

(Side note: Later that night, we legitimately saw 2 Mormon missionaries riding their bikes around our neighborhood. Perfect.)


With all this God talk, Pam will leave you with a word about Veganism:

"Cruelty to animals is as if man did not love God...There is something so dreadful, so satanic, in tormenting those who have never harmed us, and who cannot defend themselves; who are utterly in our power"

-Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890)

Peace, Love, and Latter Days,

Pam and KT
