Mother's Day Pizza Party!

Mama Crunk is the BEST. I'm seriously so lucky to have such a cool mom. She's the kindest person I know, and she'll go out of her way to help anyone. I know I've mentioned this here before, but when I was in Florida in mid-April, she and my dad house-sat for me and basically made-over my whole house — painting, repairs, deep-cleaning. Just because! 

My mom has always been incredibly social, so she makes friends wherever she goes. Everyone loves her. She's very disciplined, organized, neat, and tidy, but she also likes to party. There's nothing she loves more than a country music concert with her friends. She's basically the full package of awesomeness.

We celebrated her this past Sunday on Mother's Day. Paul and I drove to Arkansas in time for lunch. My dad had prepped a build-your-own pizza station while mama and me-maw were at church. Here's the vegan side!

We each created our own personal pizza using pre-made naan bread as the crust. The naan from Sprouts Farmers Market is vegan! While our pizzas were in the oven, we had salads and beer. 

And here's my pizza — garlic naan topped with vegan sausage crumbles, smoked BBQ tofu (made by my dad in his smoker), bell pepper, jalapeno, mushroom, onion, and black olive. My parents make naan pizzas often, and I'd heard of them. But since vegan naan can be hard to find, I'd never had one. So glad I found the vegan naan at Sprouts! This will definitely become a quick weeknight staple for me.

After we ate lunch, we went to visit my Me-maw and Granny — also amazing moms! So grateful for my family!

I love the idea of a build-your-own pizza bar for a gathering. Everyone's happy, and yours looks so good! Plus, I'm still coveting that smoked tofu.
