A Delicious Vegan Pizza Recipe
Pizza is an extremely versatile food and there are a number of different recipes which ensures everyone can have the opportunity to enjoy pizza regardless of dietary restrictions. Vegan pizza can be an excellent alternative if you don’t want eat animal products or if you’re looking for a dairy free version of pizza.
To get started you can make a substance that’s called vegan Parmesan. The process for making vegan Parmesan cheese involves ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder, 3 tbsp of nutritional yeast, 3/4 cup of cashews and 3/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Blending up all of these items together in a food processor makes a product that is very similar to Parmesan cheese. Combining this together with some sautéed veggies on the top of the dough that you create, to make a traditional style pizza that’s nutritious and full of flavor.
You can pick up premade pizza dough to really simplify this recipe. Be sure to choose a product that was made without animal products or the gluten-free pizza dough that you may find at most local markets. Trader Joe’s and other grocery stores often carry this product. Using around half the dough, spread it out and sauté together several types of peppers, mushrooms, red onion and herbs like garlic powder, basil and oregano.
Once the dough has settled and remains spread out you can spread across 15 ounces of canned tomato sauce and layout more herbs in the sauce like fresh basil, garlic powder and a touch of granulated sugar along the top. Adding sea salt to the sauce to get the perfect mix of sweet and salty can give you a more traditional tomato sauce.
Adding the sautéed vegetables on top of the sauce and dough and then crumbling the Parmesan mixture over the top will give you the perfect base for your pizza. Creating your oven to 425°, oiling a pizza pan and placing the pizza inside for 17 to 20 min. will give you the perfect vegan pizza.
