Oh yay, Vegan Pizza Day is finally here! For dinner, I shall be swimming in a pool of liquid Daiya and pizza sauce; until then, all I have are my fantasies – inspired, in no small part, by this week’s nom roundup. Ditto: my Flickr favorites, which is stuffed so full of vegan pizza photos that I’m starting to look like I have a sexual fetish or something. (Cue: images of me poking a hot, saucy pizza à la America Pie, whilst moaning in simultaneous fits of pain and pleasure.)
Um, yeah, I’ll stop talking now. You’re welcome.

The anti-tethering group Dogs Deserve Better (DDB) needs volunteers to help make its 9th annual Have a Heart for Chained Dogs Week a success. The campaign, which takes place the week of Valentine’s Day, involves sending hand-crafted Valentine’s cards, brochures and coupons for dog supplies to the owners of chained dogs, in order to raise awareness for chained and penned dogs – with the ultimate goal of bringing them indoors. You can help by making cards, donating coupons, and submitting the addresses of chained dogs.
Help In Defense of Animals (IDA) help the nonhuman victims of the recent floods in Australia and Brazil. Donate to its disaster relief fund and share these heartbreaking images with your friends, family and social networks.
As always (okay, three weeks and counting!), check out Spay & Neuter Kansas City’s volunteer opportunities and weekly recap. (Which doesn’t seem to be available yet, but I’ll update this post with a link when it is!)
Finally, for Vegan Pizza Day (not really!) the lovely Tracye McQuirter of By Any Greens Necessary shows how to make a delicious vegan pizza, topped with tons of veggies and nutritional yeast:
I’m not a “nooch” girl myself – you either love nutritional yeast or you don’t – but I am totally in love with her kitchen! So modern and matchy! Me, I have yellow ’70s laminate countertops. I could never shoot a cooking video in my own kitchen, even if I wanted to. Yuck!
