Veggie Pizza

My favorite food is pizza and honestly I could it everyday without even trying. I love everything about pizza: the cheese, the toppings, the sauce, the crust, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.

Here’s the thing though, as much as I want to eat pizza everyday I can’t because adulting sucks. See, I’m transitioning to a more plant based diet so I’m trying to make healthier choices but I am not willing to give up everything I love.

For me that means tweaking the foods that I love and in this case it’s pizza. For tonight’s dinner I made vegan pizza topped with green peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, tomato and chili and pepper crunch from Trader’s Joes.

Check out the recipe below:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 4 button mushrooms with stems removed
  • 1/2 white onion
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 tomato on the vine
  • 1 vegan pizza dough
  • 1 cup of vegan cheese (I prefer the So Delicious Shreds)
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of chili and onion crunch (Trader Joes)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of all purpose seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Flour for dusting and rolling out pizza

Tools:

  • Rolling pin
  • Pizza stone
  • Pizza cutter

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 375 F

  • Slice green pepper, onion, mushrooms and tomato into thin slices
  • Add veggies and spinach in a bowl, season with all purpose seasoning, salt and pepper and add oil
  • Toss to combine and set aside
  • Spread pizza sauce on crust
