I have only been vegetarian for a couple of months, but I am really excited about the new foods I have discovered!! Veg pizza sounds really good, but without cheese how do you keep the veggies on? I just picture them all falling off!

the sauce holds them somewhat. beyond that, i guess you just have to keep your pizza at a reasonable angle. i have things fall off here and there, but it's not much of a problem.

Every now and then, a veggie will fall off. I just eat the fallen veggies last.

You could make a "cheese" sauce with nutritional yeast. The veggies will

stay on pretty well, and you get a yummy cheesy-type of flavor too!

1. eat only flat pizzas.

2. hold them at angles parallel to the ground.

I make more of a pizza pocket rather than the triangle slices. It works really well!

I've never had trouble with toppings falling off of a cheeseless pizza.

I have never had a cheeseless pizza... what do you guys usually top it with? Just sauce and veggies? Even when I was a vegan, I would still make it with I.M. Earthkind Vegan Mozzarella or a vegan cheese sauce deal.

hummus makes a good "glue" but i've never really had a problem with veggies falling off of my cheeseless pizzas.... lemme think

-hummus instead of marinara sauce

-nutritional yeast cheese sauce

-marinara sauce

-just olive oil with the veggies on top...

-you can make a "glue" out of cornstarch and water.. :-D

Vegan velcro



I think keeping the toppings on is harder when there's cheese, since it's all greasy and slidey.

I add some tomato paste to make a thicker sauce if I'm using a tomato-based sauce. It works great.



But I liked hummus pizza better, and that's thick enough so everything sticks. Refried bean taco pizza is amazing too.

I really have nothing to add, I just want to say this thread is hilarious (no offense to the original poster--it's a reasonable question). Thanks for making me laugh.



Wait...



vegan velcro? Does that mean normal velcro isn't vegan?

I often have veggie-slide issues with a cheese pizza, and the few times I've had cheeseless pizza, it's been about the same.



I guess I need to start eating cheeseless pizza more often since my NY resolution was to get serious about getting the cheese out. But I still eat cheese as a coping method when I'm eating out, and I almost always have pizza out.

When I make my pizza from scratch.... the toppings would fall off if I tried to eat it with my hands. I use a fork and knive.



When I order cheeseless Papa John's it stays on .... but they have less toppings.

Papa John's -- tomato sauce with green pepper, onion and tomatoes



mine -- tomato sauce with red pepper, green pepper, broccoli, snow pea pods, carrots, water chestnuts and garlic (if I have any fresh in the house).
