"Heart Healthy Pizza is a breakthrough guide to making nutritious plant-based pizzas. Mark Sutton will show you how to make your own delicious dough, mouth-watering sauces, and vegan cheeses. This cookbook will be a favorite for anyone looking for a healthier way to eat pizza." --- Neal Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine The Heart Healthy Pizza cookbook contains over 100 delicious no-added oil, plant-based recipes for making pizza. Through the imaginative use of grains (oats, quinoa, millet, and others) as well as legumes (such as chickpeas, black eyed peas, dal) and various vegetables (artichokes, carrots, corn, cauliflower...), unique "cheese-like" sauce recipes are made that range in taste and texture profile from a delicate velvety sauce to a custard firmness. Most are gluten-free. Coupled with recipes for crusts (including gluten-free versions), several bottom sauces and total pizza concepts, this easy to use book will help anyone create scrumptious and delectable pizzas.

Biografía del autor
In his youth, Mark worked at two pizza parlors, and it was there that his initial interest in making pizza began. Several years later, he became vegetarian, and after watching a friend effortlessly make pizzas at home for a couples dinner party, became re-focussed on learning to do the same himself in a non-restaurant environment. After going vegan, Mark began exploring making totally plant-based pizzas. During this period he came to the conclusion that a cookbook based on these recipes would help vegetarians kick the cheese need. The path and his approach changed considerably when learning of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's peer-reviewed research demonstrating that a no-added fat plant-based diet can not only reverse heart disease, but in theory, prevent it. Mark decided to incorporate this knowledge into his recipes and make them all truly "heart healthy." Mark has been employed as the Visualizations Coordinator for two NASA Earth Satellite Missions, a freelance interactive multimedia computer consultant, an organic farmer, and head photographer. He's developed media published in several major magazines and shown internationally on network broadcasts, DVD's, websites, and managed/edited a cookbook. Mark has produced work for two Nobel Peace Prize winners (on Global Climate Change) and helped create UN Peace Medal Award-winning high school curriculum. He's currently the editor of the Mad Cowboy e-newsletter, has been a vegetarian for 20 years and vegan the past 11. Mark's an avid nature photographer, gardener, environmentalist, and is single.
