WatchDadEat.com the BEST vegan pizza: Cruzer Pizza, Los Feliz

My dad eats spoonfuls of straight protein powder and gargles cologne whenever he OD's on garlic.
Growing up I thought my dad was weird because he was a foreigner.
Now I realize that's just who he is.
He also eats like the Tasmanian devil. He used to eat edamame beans whole until I told him you're not suppose to eat the outside.
My brother and I have taken live footage of him in the act:


So when my dad came for a visit and I suggested ordering pizza instead of going out, he frowned. I countered with vegan pizza and he started listening. See, my dad is a health nut who eats like a horse. He countered with, can you make me lentils? Agreed.

We got a half vegan sausage and mushroom and half vegan Hawaiian on a whole wheat crust. Unfortunately the pizza arrived with a standard white bread crust, but I didn't feel like calling to complain; I let it slide this time. The sausage looked like salami also, but again, I was feeling easy-going and too hungry to gripe. On the bright side, the pie was loaded! The cheese was gooey, tomato sauce slightly tangy and the crust was bubbly. 
As you can see, the cheese melts! They use Daiya cheese (casein free) which is basically the best vegan cheese on the market and Quarry Girl approved. In fact, Cruzer has named one of their pies after her, which I will have next time. The slices are heavy!
Sticky Icky Ooou Wee!
 The vegan pizza eating called for another WatchDadEat.com episode. Here he is in true form, sitting crossed legged grabbing his inner thigh while he noshes. Cruzer's pie was truly delicious. I could easily choose this over regular pizza any day.

Your pa's a wildman. Watch out edamame! I love it. And that pizza looks crazy filling. I gotta try it.

Diana said...

Hahaha that's hilarious about the edamame!

I don't know about this fake cheese stuff though. It kind of horrifies me. Does it taste waxy?

Banana Wonder said...

Sook - Yes! Try the pizza and holler at a greek woman.

Diana - Not waxy at all. Don't knock it till you try it, TALF!
