Pizza Pie

Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend. We always have a bunch of people over for dinner so I get to cook for 2 days to prepare for it. I love it. Everyone's favorite pie is the Sm'love pie from Veganomicon. The first time I made it James made fun of me for wanting to make a chocolate pie instead pumpkin at Thanksgiving. And then he tasted it. Now that pie is explicitly requested for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have to have it when there are other people to help eat it because it's way too rich for just the two of us to finish.

Please ignore my dirty oven. A clove of garlic exploded in it when I was roasting garlic last weekend.

While the pie is baking, I'm eating leftover pizza from Vegan Pizza House. Thank goodness for leftovers! It's been a busy day of working and planning and grocery shopping. I definitely didn't want to have to add making dinner on to that . Tonight's goal was to get the base of the pie done and then I can sit back with glass of wine and watch Fringe. I'm going to be on my feet in the hot kitchen for the next 2 days straight so I need to get my relaxing in tonight while I still can!

The browned bits are all me. I reheated this in the oven to make it crispy and gooey again.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to get up and be at the farmers market by 9am to get the rest of the stuff for the feast. The market is just about a block from my apartment so I can sort of just roll out of bed and walk over there at least. I can't wait to see kinds of goodies they have. I got some local cranberries last week! 


  1. I love my pizza to be crispy :) My stomach is growling for pizza now too. I will have to make sure I make some for dinner tomorrow. Sounds like a plan to me!

  2. That pie looks amazing. I haven't made it yet but I am going to put it on my must make list.

  3. Crispy pizza is the best, isn't it?!

    You just HAVE to make the Sm'love pie. It's crazy rich, so keep that in mind when you're slicing it up, even if you think you can handle it. It's so delicious, though. Everyone asks about that pie when I make it. The onmivores can never believe it's vegan.

  4. I can't wait to read more about your Canadian Thanksgiving feast. I really really love the s'mlove pie, I have to refrain from making it too often though!
