See, that’s the beauty of Pizza Wednesday: the whole day is just a little bit better because I know there’s cheesy goodness waiting for me at the end (That’s right..I can find motivation in pizza. Don’t judge.)!
So here is a classic example of what goes into DIY pizza at our house. We start with organic whole wheat crust from Whole Foods’ store brand, slather on a ‘lil olive oil and sauce and then each side is covered with the appropriate cheese (Daiya for me, cow for Andy) and toppings of choice. Done.
On this particular evening we had a half and half on each of our halves thing going on. My side is on the right and as you can see, I try to leave a small cheese-free line down the middle to separate our two sides. I’ll post the ingredient list below for reference, but obviously there’s not too terribly much involved here. Cooking up your very own DIY vegan pizza is literally, easy as pie!
(Busy) Vegan Pizza
*Of course, any chopped veggies are yummy vegan choices but there are also plenty of tasty meat substitutes that are great if you just don’t think pizza is pizza without meat. I like Smart Deli Pepperoni and Crumbled Match Ground Beef or Sausage.
- Chop veggies and/or prepare meat substitutes according to package directions
- Preheat oven to 400°
- Place crust on pizza stone or baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil
- Brush on sauce, to taste, sprinkle cheese over the crust and add toppings
- Bake for 12-15 min. or until cheese begins to brown at the edges
