Amy's Organic Rice Crust Pizza

Don't let the "rice crust" scare you! I repeat, do not let it scare you!

This is (to my knowledge) Amy's only vegan-cheese pizza. It's delicious! The rice crust is soft with a crisp bottom and the pizza is topped with mounds of spinach, chunky tomato sauce, and 'CHEESE'!

Here's the secret:

Bake at 400 for 11 minutes, remove from oven, turn on broiler, once broiler is lit place pizza under the broiler for 2-3 minutes until 'cheese' is melted.

They had this in Portland about 6 months ago, but it just arrived on the East Coast (at least my section of the East Coast) last week. It's worth a try.

My friend Barry (vegan fitness guru of aforementioned YouTube fame) has been asked by Lifescape Magazine to be their fitness expert.

He also has a 3-page spread in the current issue (September/October - on sale at B&N) that shows you can be both vegan AND healthy!!
