Vegan cheese & veggie Pizza

Vegan Cheese & Veggie Pizza. [Serves 4]

Ingredients:

  • 16oz packet of pizza dough
  • Pizza sauce or tomato paste (your preference)
  • 1 cup shredded vegan mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large Spanish onion, sliced
  • 1-2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped sundried tomato
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped shitake mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Spray Pam cooking oil (or your preference) onto your cooking pan, then roll or stretch out your dough the best you can (about 12-14 inch round or square depending on the shape of your cooking pan).
  3. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce (about 1/2 cup) on the dough leaving about an inch border.
  4. Sprinkle your vegan mozzarella cheese, followed by chopped garlic, zucchini, mushrooms, sundried tomato and Spanish onion.
  5. Drizzle on olive oil and sprinkle over basil and cilantro to your liking.
  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until crust begins to brown or cheese melts.
  7. Slice and enjoy!

Extra Notes: To turn it into a nutritious protein-packed pizza, try adding chicken, shrimp (simply pre-cook), or even try both together for a unique taste combo!
