I consider myself an ethical vegan. As someone who carries a history of injustice and violence I choose not to perpetuate violence and exploitation towards other living beings, including human and nonhuman animals. Only after going vegan did I begin to understand how veganism is a healthier way of living.
Because the reasons for my veganism aren’t solely dietary I become frustrated when omnivores are judgemental when I choose to have a piece of candy or eat a slice of pizza; misinformed judgments from people who do not understand the ethical aspect of veganism, but instead mask it with health conscious reasons, which in their minds, equate veganism to solely eating meals of green stuff on a plate called a salad.
So, to all the judgemental ammonia coated meat eating, high in cholesterol omelet loving, pus filled cow milk drinking people, all I have to say is, “Whatever, I do what I want. I’ll eat a slice of pizza if I wanna.”
Like any normal human, I do crave certain foods and if what I am craving falls within the vegan realm I may eat it. Occasionally, I do crave not so healthy foods—like pizza. My favorite is the thick & fluffy pizza dough from places like Pizza Hut or Dominos. In most take out pizza chains, the only vegan pizza dough is thin & crispy.
After doing some online research, I found a pleasing surprise on the Little Caesars Pizza website.
Little Caesars’ website has a section devoted to both vegetarians and strict vegetarians, i.e. vegans. The pizza dough, pizza sauce, crazy bread, and crazy sauce are all vegan!
I do have conflicting feelings about supporting a business that sells dead pigs in the form of pepperoni and sausage, but I do not know of a vegan pizza chain. What I do know is that if I ever get a random craving for an “I know it’s vegan” slice of pizza, I can go to my local Little Caesars.
