Whether you’re one-half of a love bird couple or flying solo, these nine vegan recipes are guaranteed to be a hit (and better than steak!).

5. Veggie Pizza

When you can’t decide what to have, pizza is a foolproof option. You can design it to be exactly what you want, showing your partner you know them by topping the dish with all of their favorite ingredients. And, if all goes wrong and your homecooked meal turns out more burnt than not, you can always order a vegan pizza from Dominos, Pizza Express, or Pizza Hut.
