Going nuts over cashew pizza

IMG_0226Could I give up meat and cheese if I could eat nuts whenever I felt like it?

Well, I sure wasn’t missing either one on this pizza, which was basically a meatless Hawaiian number with chopped onions and pineapple on a whole wheat pita crust smeared with barbecue sauce and sprinkled with ground cashews. The original recipe — from vegan triathlete-turned-firefighter Rip Esselstyn’s The Engine 2 Diet — called for spinach, but I wasn’t in the mood (though I usually love spinach).

I still love traditional pizza, and don’t see myself giving it up anytime soon. But I’m definitely adding these vegan nut pizzas to my repertoire.
