FireDance Pizza: the Full Vegan!

FireDance Pizza, full vegan, no compromises.

At FireDance Pizza we have always taken our responsibility to run our business with as little impact on the environment very seriously. We are taking these ideals to the next level and have created a full vegan menu. We have both preferred a plant based diet for thirty years and became vegan two years ago.
We pride ourselves on our ability to prepare a wide variety of toppings and having made the decision to create a full vegan menu, we are keen to offer the same range of choice to those who have made the decision to consume more responsibly.

As vegans ourselves we are ideally qualified to offer tasty vegan treats to our customers and have been careful to ensure that our vegan recipes are as tasty (if not tastier) than our regular pizzas.


In order to create our delicious vegan cheese topping we use a blend of vegan cheese, nutritional yeast flakes and olive oil. We have never used dairy or eggs in our breads and have processes in place, and a five-star hygiene rating from Cornwall Council, ensuring that no vegan pizza is ever contaminated with meat or dairy products.


You will be able to order from our full vegan menu, which is nearly finalised and included here to get your taste buds working, from Wednesday 1st February 2017. Until then you can still grab one of our currently available vegan pizzas; the Vegan Vegetali, the Vegan Supreme (all the vegetables) and our Margherita, plus we are now able to make Vegan Garlic Breads, with or without cheese… they are delicious. Our new menu will include vegan alternatives to many of our most popular pizza toppings. Using vegan Quorn ™ and tofu we are able to create vegan pizzas that surpass the tastes and textures of other meaty offerings.

All of the information regarding our pitches, pricing and menu are available from our website.  We hope to see you soon, Nick and Dru x

Veganise your life with Veganuary!

Just some delicious fruit for the eating!
Did you know that fruits, like tomatoes, keep better out of the fridge?

The New Year is traditionally a time of new beginnings, changing habits, doing something new, and having no money. What better time to eat fruits and veggies, get a head start with health and find a more compassionate and just outlook on life! Vegetable, fruits, nuts, beans, seeds and grains can be vastly cheaper whilst you recover from the excesses of Christmas, and you will find that eating ‘like you give a damn’ will help your heart in more ways than one!                                                      Team up with Veganuary this January and get help, tips, support and lots of information and check out the Nutritionfacts .org website for all things nutritional and health related. You can also buy Dr Greger’s book “How not to Die” on the same site..and live to see the next new year in too!

We ‘re so cheerful!

 

 

If you love Thai food, the dishes at Chantek in Truro take some beating!

Seriously though, you still may want to eat out and about and theres a great guide to help you do this that covers the majority of Cornwall’s eateries, take aways, bars and cafes. Its called VeganCornwall and it is an amazing collection of experienced reviews. Please though, if theres anything you notice that has changed, drop them a line, they will be happy and grateful  that you took the time to let them know of any updates and changes!

Where to shop for food and what to replace certain foods with is another question we all get asked regularly when starting out vegan. Many foods that you already buy will be suitable, read the labels and especially the allergen advice as this will highlight or bold many common allergens which you can then avoid. If you are severely allergic, however, you may already know not to to consume certain processed foods as the ‘may contain’ means that it has been made in an area or factory where allergens are present. Milk and egg are easy to spot in these sections. Many supermarkets are now producing their own lists of products SFV-suitable for vegans- and are often quite good at labelling their own brand products, (these lists from VeganWomble are excellent). In addition, you can find some up to date info on the Veganuary site too!

Just some of the vast array of plant milks available today.

More and more the shift towards vegan food and drink is mainstreaming into the supermarkets. A recent photograph taken in Tesco shows the wealth and extent of plant milks there are available .. and when you’ve found one you like, you can always give making it yourself a go too! (should the desire arise..).

When you have taken a few steps around getting ingredients, it may be time for your first dinner party.  One of the most accessible sites for this is Buddhist Chef, I guarantee your mouth will start to water just looking at the pictures!
