Vegan Lebanese Zataar Pizza Recipe


You all know that I’m a bread baby.  I am disciplined (so, I won’t eat a whole loaf of bread in one setting), but I LOVE bread.

So, when a fellow vegan blogger, Amanda Logan and I chatted about recipes, and she mentioned Zataar Pizza, I was all over it.  I asked her to write up the recipe and to take shots of it to share with you.

She’s amazing.  So, she agreed.  And let me tell you–I’m making this pizza recipe this weekend.  I might end up overdoing on bread, and Sprout, Hubby and I might be fighting for the last piece, but it will be so worth it.  I ‘m salivating just looking at the pictures.

Don’t let me hold you back from enjoying Amanda’s amazing vegan creation.
