Heart Healthy Pizza...and much more
For all vegans who have been pining for delicous, homemade pizza there is good news. Mark Sutton has written the one and only vegan pizza cookbook, Heart Healthy Pizza, which features over 100 delicous recipes for this favorite staple of so many!
"Through the imaginative use of grains (oats, quinoa, millet, and others) as well as legumes (such as chickpeas, black eyed peas, white beans, dal), sometimes nuts, and various vegetables (artichokes, carrots, corn, etc.), the author has created 60 unique "cheese-like" sauce recipes that range in taste texture from a delicate velvety to a custard firmness. Most are gluten-free! With recipes for pizza crusts (including gluten-free versions), "bottom sauces" & total pizza concepts, this book will help anyone create the most healthy pizza possible. "Heart Healthy Pizza's" recipes were inspired by the peer-reviewed research of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., showing that a plant-based diet could not only reverse heart disease, but in theory, prevent it."
Not only has Mark written this wonderful cookbook, but he has been very active spreading the word on health, animal advocacy and veganism.
Mark was fortunate enough to be interviewed on Bob Linden's Go Vegan Radio . You can listen to the interivew here: http://www.goveganradio.com/2013/12/11/8-december-2013/
This is also an interesting and informative lecture Mark recently gave which includes an excerpt from his soon to be published interview with Dr. Neal Barnard. Here's the link to Mark's 30 minute lecture (plus 10 minute Q&A) Th talk was delivered on World Veg Day at the Sterling, VA, Unitarian Church on 10/18/13. In an unusually intimate and reflective manner, Mark discusses his journy to veganism, his work at NASA, at NOAA, accomplishments, diet & nutrition (Campbell, Greger, Esselstyn), and Howard Lyman.
