Plant Powered Vegan Pizza

What I am about to show you just may very well change your life as you know it. I’m talking major change. I’m talkin doughy crust, melted cheesy, warm vegetable goodness change. I present to you: my vegan pizza.

Yeah, you heard me; pizza, that is vegan. “Wait, but how is it vegan if it has cheese on it?” Daiya my friends. Daiya.

So you’re probably wondering how I made this baby? Well, luckily I had my camera with me to record every step of the way. Take a look.

Before you begin making this, I just want to put it out there that it was quite tedious. You have to make your crust from scratch which kind of took a while. Maybe 45 minutes to an hour. But was it worth it? Hell yes. Let’s get started.

crust
  1. 1 head of cauliflower
  2. 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
  3. 2 tbsp. chia seeds, 6 tbsp water (chia egg)
  4. garlic
  5. oregano
toppings
  1. tomato paste
  2. daiya (vegan cheese)
  3. red pepper
  4. green pepper
  5. mushrooms
  6. spinach
  7. black olives
Instructions
  1. Begin by washing your head of cauliflower. Break it into smaller pieces and stick it into your food processor.
  2. Blend until you have a rice like texture.
  3. Remove the cauliflower from the food processor, add it to a pot, fill with water until it's all covered, then boil on high for 5 minutes.
  4. Once it's boiled, remove from the burner and drain it over the sink to get all of the water out.
  5. Move the mixture into a bowl and stick it in the freezer for 10 minutes. This is the time I used to tidy up the kitchen a bit, and preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. *Also take this time to prepare your chia seed egg. It's so easy, all you do is add 2 tbsp. of chia seeds into a bowl, and add 6 tbsp. of water, then just let it sit and thicken*
  7. Remove from the freezer, and place your mixture on a thin dish towel. Roll it into a ball, and squeeze it out over the sink to remove all of the excess water. You can see this step as pictured. (ring it out out really well)
  8. Place it into a mixing bowl. Check on your chia seed egg which should be nice and goopy by now.
  9. Measure out 1/2 cup of flaxseed meal and pour into your bowl. Also add your chia seed egg and some spices like garlic and oregano, and stir everything together well.
  10. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and stick your dough onto it.
  11. Roll it out and flatten with your hands. Stick this in the oven for 30 minutes.
  12. *Note: after 30 minutes if the crust is still flimsy, place another piece of parchment paper on top, and flip it over, and cook for another 15 minutes*
  13. TOPPING TIME!
  14. While this is cooking for 30 minutes, you have time to prepare your toppings.
  15. Just wash and cut up all of your veggies. We also have this cool olive de-seeder in our house that pops out the seed, so then I could easily chop them into thin little pieces.
  16. Once your pizza is finished cooking for 30 minutes, bring it out and begin adding your toppings.
  17. First begin with your tomato paste. Spread it on nicely and leave room for the crust.
  18. Next add your vegan cheese, OR you could just as well not put any cheese on at all!
  19. Sprinkle on those veggies!
  20. Once everything is on, stick it back in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
  21. When it's finished, remove from the oven, smell the delicious goodness in the air, stand back and marvel at the beauty, THEN DIG IN!
