"Heart Healthy Pizza is a breakthrough guide on making nutritious plant-based pizzas. Mark Sutton will show you how to make your own delicious dough, mouth-watering sauces, and vegan cheeses." - Neal Barnard, M.D., President, PCRM

The 1st ever Vegan Pizza Cookbook, "Heart Healthy Pizza," contains over 100 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, white beans, dal), sometimes nuts, and various vegetables (artichokes, carrots, corn, etc.), the author has created 60 unique "cheese-like" sauce recipes that range in taste texture from a delicate velvety to a custard firmness. Most are gluten-free!

With recipes for pizza crusts (including gluten-free versions), "bottom sauces" & total pizza concepts, this book will help anyone create the most healthy pizza possible. "Heart Healthy Pizza's" recipes were inspired by the peer-reviewed research of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., showing that a plant-based diet could not only reverse heart disease, but in theory, prevent it.

"HEART HEALTHY PIZZA" is NOW AVAILABLE as a PDF that can be read on all mobile & computer devices!

As of mid-June 2015, I'm a regular co-host of the Dr. Don Radio Show! Learn more about the show, the interviews & topics, the live broadcasts (and Internet streaming) as well as the audio archives of all shows HERE!

And now, how cool is this? I was also Certified in Plant-Based Nutrition by Cornell's T.Colin Campbell's "Nutrition Studies" Program in late June.

Honored that my article, "The Ultimate Guide to Plant-Based Pizza," was just published in the 2015 Earth Day Issue of the Cornell University's prestigious T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies Newsletter! My thanks to Anne Leadbetter and her team for their great work. This issue is entitled: "Healthy Food for a Sustainable Planet" and also features articles by Howard Lyman (aka, "The Mad Cowboy"), J. Morris Hicks, Bruce Monger, and Amy-Lee Goodman. Enjoy... and Happy Earth Day to All Living Organisms! [here]

NEW INTERVIEW!! JANUARY 2015: I had the delightful opportunity of being interviewed by Dr. Mara Karpel on Sunday (on Austin radio), the audio podcasts are available for downloading/streaming. My thanks to her efforts.

It was wide-ranging discussion, noting Howard Lyman, Drs. Esselstyn, Greger, Barnard, McDougall, Campbell, Forks Over Knives, the "growing your own food" experience and importance in human culture, sugar/salt/oil taste addictions, my vegan pizza cookbook (how, why, and what?), the conventional kitchen as a "bio-hazard" laboratory, the environment, my work at NASA and NOAA (Global Climate Change), and more (esp. plugs for the always impressive Susan Voisin and Robin Robertson!).

FULL SHOW (2 hours, I'm on 24 min. in):

July 2014: The "Missing" VegNews Interview on "Being Vegan in Your 50s!" You can read this two part interview HERE.

Interview: Yesterday (06/25/14), I had the good fortune to be interviewed by Victoria Moran (Main Street Vegan). Eric Brent (Happy Cow) was on 1st, then me, followed by Jill Nussinow,aka, "The Veggie Queeen" and author of the new cookbook, "CHAMPS!"

You can listen the show ("Food, Glorious Food!") online or download it as an audio mp3 at:


A marvelous time was had by all. Victoria is a fine interviewer and we covered more than just my book (my relationship with Howard Lyman, how Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn changed my life and book, True North Center, the Pleasure Trap, etc.). Jill's knowledge of diet was most impressive (as is her cookbook, CHAMPS! with 45 invited authors who submitted recipes, including yours truly).

The Healthy Librarian Interviews Mark (here)

Dr. Don Wagner & Mark discuss "Looking Back at 2013" radio broadcast, now available for streaming or an MP3 download

Mark's Dec. 08, 2013 National Radio Interview with Bob Linden on "Go Vegan Radio" is now available for streaming or an MP3 download

It was a great experience, although the 5 minutes on, 4 minutes of commercials (cut out in these audios, 'cept for a plug or two by Bob), 5 minutes back on, 4 minutes of commercials, etc., threw me initially. I was honored that the previous speaker, Dr. Gary Francione, well-known academic and animal rights activist, mentioned that he just bought my book and was excited to receive it! So cool. Gary ends his bit mentioning my book around 42:11 and Bob segues into my interview.

Many thanks to Bob for the opportunity, and to Gary for really making my day!

Mark's 11/21 Lecture to Olgothorpe University on "The Devolution of Thanksgiving" is now available online.

Here's links to Mark's audio ad hoc slideshow of a 30 minute lecture (plus 10 minute Q&A) he gave on World Veg Day at the Sterling, VA, Unitarian Church on 10/18/13. In an unusually intimate and deeply person reflection, Mark discusses his journy to veg'nism, his work at NASA, at NOAA, accomplishments, diet & nutrition (Campbell, Greger, Esselstyn), Howard Lyman, only 3 minutes about his book(!), and reads aloud parts of a soon-to-be published interview with Dr. Neal Barnard at PCRM:

*** NEW RADIO INTERVIEW: Dr. Don & I did an "Orson Welles War of the Worlds" in a radio interview a few weeks ago, w/ the concept of "what if the world went vegan last night?" It was quite the improv experience. 1st few minutes, my book, the rest, a "thought experiment" in real-time on what the implications would be for the planet and global society. Apparently, some listeners actually thought it had happened and went looking online social media for reference to the event!

It's about 45 minutes streamed or as an MP3 audio download. Here's a link to my post about what, why, and links to the broadcast.

Watch my Cable TV Debut! Demonstrating how simple it is to make a truly healthy pizza, start to finish. This was designed for the 'busy professional' and can be made in 30 minutes or less:
