This arboretum news is awesome. I was asking about the slices last week & they were all cheesy. I've noticed cookies & a choc muffin there consistently. I'm not sure if they've always been there or not.

Yeah, they've had the muffin and cookies for a long time.. I don't think the cookies are very good but the muffin is delicious.

Today I bought a personal sized daiya cheese pizza from them. And it was awesome! Two nights in a row of pizza. My downfall has begun.

Did you get it at the downtown or Gateway location?  I was at the downtown location yesterday, and they've got it there to.  With the other vegan take-home pizzas by the vegan food station.  Although there was only one left when I was there.

I bought that personal sized pizza at the Gateway location. It wasn't already made. I just had to walk up and ask the pizza dude to make me one. Only takes 10 minutes or so for them to make one, and then you have a nice, fresh, hot pizza to take home. Awesome.

I think he said unlimited toppings for the same $5.00 price. Mine had bell peppers, onions, and sun dried tomatoes. Amazing that they can even make any money doing that. I'm thinking they must be trying to hook me in, and then they'll raise the price! Hehe.

I went to the Lamar Whole Foods today and got the grilled cheese with Daiya on the flat bread.  It was more of a panini press healthy tasting quesadilla but it was really good and a real value at 2.50.  Xocolatl was there and she helped me, Xoco!

Not to sound obsessed about Whole Foods pizza or anything, but... I went by yesterday and saw that the WF in the Gateway location had large and small sized pre-made vegan daiya cheese pizzas ready to take out and cook yourself. They're in with the sandwiches, egg rolls, salads, fruit cups, etc. Right next to the Jamba juice counter. The large pizza was about $14 if I recall correctly. I forget how much the small was. Maybe less than the $5 you pay for a cooked one there. Pretty decent!

>Longtime lurker, I finally decided to register to Austin Vegans. Yay! Anyway I just wanted to let you all know that Whole Foods at 6th and Lamar has Daiya cheese. We have it on our Pizza and Sandwich island, so come on over and enjoy a grilled "cheese" sandwich that doesn't absolutely suck or a vegan pizza that is  not just spinach/artichokes and sauce

>Now I know that  a lot of people hate Whole Foods but I figured that vegans gotta stick together and Daiya is amazing stuff so why not let everyone know?

>I'm a hater of vegan cheese substitutes, especially Teese and FYH, (yuck!) but Daiya is just plain magical.

>So please don't hate me because I work at the Food Hole.

Oh man I tried this today! Sooo good! and definitely the best deal I've ever gotten on vegan pizza w/ cheez.

Wohoo, very excited. Vegan cheese is such a stuggle! I've settled into Vegan Gourmet, but still not totally satisfied with it's non-melted state. I found Tofutti Sliced American and Pepper Jack at Sprouts on Brodie in South Austin- I was excited because everything Tofutti I've ever eaten was a delicious taste explosion in my mouth- but their cheese slices were soooo yuckie- and I'm the least pickiest eater (if it's vegan= I'll eat it), but that stuff was horrible.

Anyone know what kind of cheese they use on their vegan pizza at the Parlour? Because that's the best I've had yet.

Vegan Gourmet melting tips:  Preheat to 475-500. Shred cheese, put on pizza, move oven rack to highest row and put pizza directly on it (sans cookie sheet).  Check it in about 10 minutes, and every few minutes thereafter.  It'll take awhile to melt, but it should eventually.

Maybe you've tried these tips already. But in case you haven't, they usually work for me. Mmmm...pizza.
