Pizza!!! When you say the word pizza in a crowded room, you can bet all eyes will be on you. I’ve seldom met anyone who would ever turn down pizza. But greasy, doughy, carb-filled pizza is not a good snack, honestly, it’s not good for you. That’s not the case with this veggie pizza. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and herbs but the best part is the flavor is so good!
Perhaps you’re craving a pizza right now and don’t want to blow your diet. This veggie pizza is the answer to your craving. I think you can rest easy with this soy cheese and veggie. We made this the other night for our gourmet group and it turned out great. We tried it again but pumped up the veggies by adding zucchini. Here is a great video of how to quickly slice zucchini thin. Of course, you can use a pre-made crust to make it easier, but then you won’t have the fun of working with the dough.
For the cheese, you can use any vegan brand of mozzarella cheese which is great for pizzas. Or, you could use the Kite Hill brand of ricotta which Whole Foods uses on their vegan pizzas.
Don’t be shy about experimenting with toppings. This recipe is a great canvas to load up on extra veggies. Some extra toppings for thought are: sautéed shallots, onions, mushrooms and even sautéed spinach.
This veggie pizza is perfect for party food, simple lunch or make a heartier version for dinner and share with your family. You can have fun playing with different herb and veggie combinations, whatever your palate desires.
