What the Blazes!


Good morning oh lovely readers! To cope with my most recent bout of insomnia, I decided to update you all on some of the adventures that I had yesterday. I actually went Black Friday shopping! No, I was not one of those get-up-at-some-ungodly-hour-o’-clock, stand-in-line-forever, race-around-with-coupons-like-a-mad-woman kind of shoppers. My friends and I spent most of our time meandering around bookstores at a leisurely pace, keeping an eye out for deals but not stressing about it too much. It was lovely.

Along the way, we stopped for lunch at a pizza place called Blazes Pizza. I know, what the blazes was I doing in a pizza place?! Getting vegan pizza, that’s what! Blazes has a vegan cheese option, as well as lots of yummy vegetables to load onto your pie. My friend Kim and I just split a simple pie, though. We each also got a blood orange lemonade. Both were absolutely delicious.


This was also an opportunity for me to introduce my friends the wonder that is Daiya, since the vegan cheese of choice was Daiya mozzarella. The cruelty-free choice was a success! Kim said that she actually forgot she wasn’t eating “real” cheese, and that Daiya tasted like a delectable version of “some pretentious cheese.” My friend Jimmy, a pizza¬†connoisseur, declared that he was impressed. That’s a BIG DEAL – Jimmy’s serious about his pizza.

So, all in all, Blazes Pizza is a definite must-visit for any vegans craving a pizza pie fix. One word, my friends: yum.
