Okay y’all. You should know that I am a dreadful procrastinator, so sometimes I will do things on Friday that don’t make it onto Tumblr until Monday. Like this pizza. Friday night is pizza night and when I went vegan, it was the first thing I wanted to learn to make. This pizza uses a simple crust, found here:
We loaded the pizza up with diced fresh tomato instead of sauce, and then made a delicious soy pepperoni topping for protein and nummy-ness. The recipe came from Celine Steen and Joni Marie Newman’s Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites. It was fabulous and amazing and because you are fabulous and amazing, here is the recipe:
1/4 tsp fresh group black pepper
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (or more if you want)
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp cayenne (or double it for extra spicies!)
1 tsp Sucanat or other sweetener
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp liquid smoke
1 cup TVP granules
1 cup boiling water
Simply mix the dry ingredients, stir in the olive oil and liquid smoke, and pour the TVP on top. Add the boiling water, stir, and cover tightly for 10 minutes. Fluff it with a fork when you are done and you’re good to go! You can save it in the fridge but really why would you do that when you can eat it all? It’s magnificent.
My partner and I also topped the pizza with spinach, olives, and Daiya pepperjack cheese. We ate the whole thing between the two of us because it was just that good. Mmmmmmmmmm.
My wishlist is one vegan cookbook longer. AGAIN.
