Get Inspired by Vacation Eating: Vegan Portobello Carpaccio Pizza

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Editor’s note: Kristy from Keepin’ It Kind came back from a New York City vacation fired up to re-create her culinary adventures in the kitchen. This vegan mushroom carpaccio pizza is a riff on a sandwich she bought from one of those trendy NYC food trucks. She layers artichoke-olive tapenade and lightly roasted portobello mushrooms on homemade pizza dough, and tops the whole thing with lemon-dressed arugula. The result? “An ‘Oh my God’ pizza.” -- Jane

This was an “Oh my God” kind of pizza. Because that’s all Chris or I could say while we ate it. All of the flavors mesh so perfectly that you want every bite to last forever. It was as good as a vacation--allowing us both to forget all of our to-do lists and live fully in the (much too brief) moment that was eating this pizza. After we finished off the last slice, nothing else mattered.
