Vegan Pizzadillas

Vegan pizzadillas

This fast and fun dinner idea is a mash-up of pizza and quesadillas. Basically, you’re filling soft taco-size tortillas with the kinds of ingredients you’d use for making pizza — marinara sauce, vegan cheese, and lots of veggies. And you can just wing it as far as measurements, too. For a one-person meal, cut the recipe in half. All you need to complete this meal is a substantial salad with some cooked quinoa, beans or chickpeas, and/or sunflower seeds for a protein boost. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky.

Shepherd’s Pie Pizza

Shepherd's pie pizza

Some people are born to rock ’n’ roll. Others are born to ride. I was born to put mashed potatoes on pizza. I’ve done it so many ways I can’t even remember them all, but this was my favorite. Mashed potatoes, carrots, peas, and plenty of savory herbs make an unusually hearty cross between shepherd’s pie and pizza.
