Pizza is one of America’s favorite foods, and we admit we don’t mind enjoying the dish at least once a week. However, it can become a little heavy, and all the meaty toppings really make us feel bloated and heavy. One of our favorite types of pizza is one with a cracker thin crust. We just love the crispiness. Anyway, with Lent being in full swing, we thought we’d share one of our favorite pizza recipes that omitted the meat! It’s a hearty Italian recipe for vegetarians you’re sure to love.

No, that’s not a typo and we didn’t sneeze. Daifuku means “great luck” in Japanese and is a type of cake served in the country. If you’ve never tried them, you’ll love the wonderfully dense flavor and delicate lightness to the dessert. Try them the next time you’re having a dinner party, as they’re a wonderful dessert to enjoy while people are having conversation. As a single serving dessert idea, they also make a great item to bring along to your next potluck. Serve these with some coffee or green tea on the sides and people will love them!
