Homemade pizzer topped with artichoke hearts, onions, Teese, spinach and vegan chicken strips. Mmm.
When I first went vegan, for some reason I assumed that I would never have pizza again. What really happened is that I would never have Pizza Hut pizza again. Luckily!
These days we have homemade pizza a few times a month. The options are huge when you make pizza at home! Sometimes I make my own dough, but I often opt for the laziness of a store bought dough ball from Harry's or Trader Joe's. Here are some of our more common combinations:
canned pizza sauce
fresh crushed tomatoes and basil leaves
vegan alfredo sauce
Shredded mozzarealla Teese
Shredded Mozzarella Cheezly
Tofu based ricotta
Some favorite veggie combos:
Onions, black olives, mushrooms
Artichoke hearts, sliced tomatoes
Spinach and broccoli
Green peppers and onions
Sundried tomatoes and black olives
Other fun toppings:
Vegan ground beef crumbles
Vegan pepperoni slices
BBQ'd Soy Curls
Countless other meat analogs
Red pepper & garlic zip
Weirdest pizza made in our house:
Cheeseburger Pizza- ketchup, mustard, pickles, onions, vegan cheddar, vegan ground beef crumbles. So weird. But soooo good.
So what's your favorite kind of pie?
