Girrrrrrl, there is SO much happening at my house today…
A TON of family members…chillin’ in our kitchen.
We do this thing in our family called First Sunday Dinner.
It started when my grandmother- we called her Mudear- passed away. I couldn’t have been more than 6 years old.
We’d go to my Granddad’s house on the first Sunday of each month to keep him surrounded by the family. It’s a tradition we’ve kept all this time.
Welp, here we are, the first Sunday of December and everyone’s at our house.
And lemme tell ya, for an introvert like me…
Well, let’s say I’m glad we’ve got a lot of ibuprofen in the cabinets.
But you know, I can’t complain too much.
There are too many people out there who aren’t this close to their family.
They don’t get to hang out in the same house and get along like we do.
Plus, the babies in the family are cute as hell.
So the Christmas tree is lit up and the kids are runnin’ around actin’ crazy. And it’s pretty much a blessing.
But the FOOD is my favorite part.
Since this is a major family event, there’s always tons of food to go around.
But most of the family ain’t vegan like me.
So I’ve always got to be ready to hook myself up.

Half of a 16” Vegan Pizza from Homeslyce
This was actually from dinner last night.
The ‘rents and I went out to dinner last night after getting the Christmas tree.
This is the place that I usually get delivery from.
It’s not every day that you find a place with great vegan options that delivers.
THIS is the best vegan pizza I’ve ever eaten.
Like, I’m pissed off that it’s gone.
I wish I had an unlimited supply that reappeared every time I finished a pizza so I could have it for lunch the next day.
But I guess that would defeat the purpose of buying vegan pizza.
So here are a few of my favorite things about this place:
The pizza sauce is bangin.’
They veganized some loaded cheesy fries for us.
Their food is never deep-fried, only baked
They offer gluten-free options
They have VEGAN PEPPERONI.
That last one is crucial for me.
I used to LOVE pepperoni pizza before I went vegan.
Couldn’t hang with regular cheese pizza; it’s too plain for me.
But pepperoni pizza is…well, PEPPY.
It’s not so much the meat I missed; it was more about the spicy, zesty flavor.
Even other vegan pizzas tend to fall short because they only “meet the requirements”.
You know, satisfactory, but not bombastic.
Well, this pizza is BOMBASTIC. FIRE. LIT.
And you know what?
It’s STILL good the 2nd time around.
I ate it for brunch today.
Ate about half of it for dinner last night, so I had the other half this morning/afternoon. Popped it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes.
I always get the pepperoni with 1 or 2 other vegetable toppings so it feels like I’m getting something healthy.
This time, it was portobello and kale.
You wouldn’t think kale would be good on a pizza, but it is.
It gets this meaty, chewy texture when it’s baked. Kind of like kale chips, but not as crunchy or thin.
So with the kale, vegan pepperoni, and mushroom slices, the pizza was super juicy and flavorful.
The crust was whole wheat, too, so I felt full without feeling heavy after eating it.
