Pure excitement leads to disappointment!!!!

Well, anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE pizza!!!! My hubby took me to New York City a couple of years ago and we had pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner the whole time we were there. (Except for one night where hubby insisted on going to a really nice restaurant. But, that's another story.) I also enjoy making homemade pizza. A few of my friends and family that have tasted it, have even said that I make a pretty good pie! So, ever since discovering my son's Milk/Soy Protein allergy, giving up pizza for me has been the hardest thing ever. I'd rather go through labor and delivery again over giving up pizza!

Well, I was shopping at whole foods yesterday and guess what I found!!!! Cheese that does not contain Milk or Soy!!!! Previously, I had found dairy free cheeses, but they always contained soy. So when I made this little discovery, I was literally doing cartwheels in the store. Needless, to say, I made pizza last night. I rolled out the dough, spread my dairy/soy free sauce, sprinkled on the milk/soy free cheese (with real mozzarella on the other half for hubby, because I'm nice like that :o)) added tomato slices and roasted red peppers, then shoved it in the oven to bake. In fifteen minutes I would be devouring pizza!!

When I pulled the pie out of the oven, my dairy/soy free side looked just like hubby's real cheese side. So, I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into it!!! I sliced it up and put it on plates. Hubby and I bit into our pizzas at the same time. Even he was excited because he hasn't been able to eat pizza either (if I couldn't eat it, there was NO way I was making it!). Hubby made some Mmmmm sounds while he bit into his pizza and I was making some gagging sounds as I bit into mine! You see, I forgot the "fake" cheese probably wouldn't taste like the real thing. The taste was so horrible that it is indescribable! So bad, that I scraped the cheese off and just ate the sauce covered crust! Oh well, I tried! Only 5 more months until Doodlebug is one year old and I can stop nursing. The count down begins!!!!
