I’m addicted to vegan food blogs so it really didn’t take long to figure out that Saturday, January 29 was Vegan Pizza Day. Having just come off of a cleanse I really didn’t want to 1) go to a restaurant, 2) buy a processed frozen pizza, or 3) use processed foods on a pizza. So, I decided to get creative.
Okay, I did start with a prepared whole wheat pizza dough, which I brought to room temperature and rolled out.
Then I added:
*A layer of Cashew Cheese Modification: I used red wine (that’s what I had) and just 1T of nutritional yeast.
*A layer of my tomato sauce Modification: I used half a jalepeno instead of Louisiana Hot Sauce.
*A layer of Refried beans Modification: I added half a jalepeno, diced, to the pressure cooker.
*Kale (2 leaves, torn from the stem)
*1 small shallot, sliced
I baked the pizza for 15 minutes at 450 degrees.
Don’t bite into this expecting a traditional pizza taste. Do bite into this expecting fabulous, subtle flavor! I loved it!
