Here’s a word from the awesome chef!
We hope you enjoy this delightful dish as much as we do! You can put any veggie you like on it, or just substitute whatever you have on hand! This is definitely a family favorite! Use the frozen crust when you are in a hurry, or make a cauliflower or black bean crust if you have the time. Any way you make it, it is delicious and satisfying. Oh, and it’s good for you too! What could be better than that?
We usually put red bell peppers on ours, but we were fresh out. We don’t usually put eggplant on our pizza either but it was a surprisingly delicious addition. The more we make these types of recipes, the more we love experimenting with different vegetables. I never would’ve thought that an eggplant on a pizza would taste good, but it is so delicious. The type of crust you use also make a huge difference; we used UDI’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust since we were in a rush, but you can also make black-bean crust, cauliflower crust…literally anything. Don’t be afraid to experiment, have fun with it!
What you need:
UDI’S Gluten Free Pizza Crust – This crust is thin, crispy, slightly sweet, and oh so good!
Daiya Vegan Cheese – I love this vegan cheese for it’s almost real cheese flavor. If you are unable to tolerate real dairy, like I am, you might be fooled by the excellent melting and stringing, along with the full flavor. It’s worth the extra calories per slice!
Tomatoes – We also really love using sundries tomatoes for that extra punch of flavor and chewy texture.
Eggplant – You can stick with eggplant, or you can substitute with a veggie of your choice. We usually use red bell peppers.
Red Onion – Punches up the flavor like crazy!
Baby Spinach – What a fu way to get some greens in your diet!
Olive Oil – Including olive oil in your daily fare is a really smart decision!
Tomato Cashew Cream Sauce (homemade) – The nuts are a healthy fat, and this sauce is unreal!
Oregano – Another delicious nutritional boost!
Salt – Go easy, but don’t exclude this necessary mineral from your diet.
Pepper – I love pepper! Use liberally!
Red Pepper Flakes – Revs up the flavor and your metabolism.
I hope you enjoy trying out this delicious vegan pizza!
Happy beautiful life!
