Caramelized Onion, Sauteed Mushrooms and Rosemary Pizza

I love pizza, like love love pizza. Let's be honest though, there isn't too much food out there that I don't love. But pizza, I can eat a lot of and I never regret it. 

Being vegan means my pizza choices have changed, but that doesn't mean it needs to lack in flavor.

This pizza is a mix of rosemary, mushrooms, onion, garlic, olive oil and tahini. It is delicious.

I get this pizza crust from Whole Foods. Does anyone else love this crust? It is thin, crispy and comes with two pizzas which is convenient in this household: a vegan pizza for me and a meat loving pizza for Nick. Nick is eating more vegetables and even ate a full vegan meal the other night, so I'll take what I can get! I always try to remind myself that this is my journey and I am grateful to have a partner that supports that. 

This pizza hit the spot... and you guys, I ate the whole thing. Followed by some homemade Reese's. What a night!
