1st: Your favourite food – What is your favourite food? Make it and share!
Hello everyone and welcome to VeganMoFo 2016! I am so excited to be taking part in another great year of vegan food fun times on the internet. This year, I am going to be following along with the daily prompts again. I had a lot of fun with them last year! I'll be sharing a mix of round ups, eating out and cookbook fun times this month, so I hope you enjoy!
For the first day, they ask us to share our favourite food. This is hard, because I love many many many foods! But there is one that I am always excited about (even though I don't have it very often... I must change this). When everyone was arguing about tacos vs burritos last year (I am burrito, sorry tacos), I knew there was one food that could eclipse them all.
Pizza! Is there anything really that is better? You can put anything on a pizza, so any other favourite food can be turned into a delicious topping. And then you can eat it as a pizza. And then the next day you can eat the leftovers cold, which is something I love about pizza. People who reheat their leftover pizza... why you so strange?
I am sharing a short round up of some of my favourite pizzas, both purchased and made. But there are so many more I could share!
One pizza I dream about on a regular basis is the Melanzane Pizza from Gigi in Sydney. This pizza is life changing! So delicious, so simple, so needs to be in my mouth right now! I've had it three times (once at each visit) and it never disappoints.
Last year when I went to Austin for VVC, I was so excited to try the Detroit-style pizza from Via 313. I got their classic cheese pizza (with vegan cheese), and it was really delicious. Definitely lived up to the hype!
Here is one I made, the Broccoli and Cheddar pizza from Vegan Pizza by Julie Hasson. If you love pizza you need this book! It has my go-to dough recipe in it.
I love Seattle, and if you love pizza and are in Seattle you must visit Pizza Pi! Last time I got their Mac and Yeese (mac and cheese, Yves canadian bacon), and I added pineapple and black olive to it to make a Mac and Cheese Hawaiian pizza... so trashy, so delicious!
And of course, one cannot forget Sizzle Pie! This delicious pizza was worth burning my mouth for at 1am after a late flight into Portland. And now they have a shop in Seattle as well!
Oh pizza, I love you! There are a few places in Brisbane that have vegan pizza that I am very keen to go and try out. I will report back when they do!
What is your favourite pizza topping? Do you love cold leftover pizza as much as I do?

For this year's MoFo kitty theme, I thought I would share with you all the beautiful cats who have shared my life. There are eight in total, from my very first kitty through to my current beloveds. That very first kitty was called Mo, and she was a beautiful little black cat. She is responsible for my love of cats, and for my soft spot for black cats!
