Waldo Pizza

Waldo Pizza in Kansas City is by far my favorite vegan pizza yet.  They have a complete vegan section on their menu, including vegan cupcakes.  

I ordered a pineapple pizza with Follow Your Heart mozzarella.  When it arrived, I had to remind the waitress that I ordered vegan cheese.  She said, yep it's vegan cheese.  I was in complete disbelief.  When you see Daiya cheese, you know it's Daiya.  It looks...different than regular cheese.  Don't get me wrong, I completely appreciate Daiya cheese.  However, it has a certain unmistakable flavor.  This pizza had none of that flavor.  I was amazed!  It looked so real.  And the taste was incredible.  The trick is to bake the vegan pizzas for 2-3 times longer than traditional pizzas.  They come out looking exactly like the original.  

From now on, when it comes to pizza, Follow Your Heart is my choice.

This looks soooo good!! I'm always searching for great vegan cheese. I am going to have to get my hands on some Follow Your Heart!!

Vegan cheese is tough...it just isn't quite there yet in my opinion.

I haven't found any that I would eat cold, like on a sandwich. However, when heated and baked well, Follow Your Heart is my favorite!

I love love LOVE Waldo Pizza! Been going there for over 11 years, since I was 14 years old, and it's still the best in KC.

I actually think Waldo's is the best vegan pizza (with soy cheese) I've ever had...anywhere!
