…is this weekend.
* Really it’s every weekend but who’s counting?
I’m addicted to vegan food blogs so it really didn’t take long to figure out that Saturday, January 29 was Vegan Pizza Day. Having just come off of a cleanse I really didn’t want to 1) go to a restaurant, 2) buy a processed frozen pizza, or 3) use processed foods on a pizza. So, I decided to get creative.
Okay, I did start with a prepared whole wheat pizza dough, which I brought to room temperature and rolled out.
Then I added:
*A layer of Cashew Cheese Modification: I used red wine (that’s what I had) and just 1T of nutritional yeast.
*A layer of my tomato sauce Modification: I used half a jalepeno instead of Louisiana Hot Sauce.
*A layer of Refried beans Modification: I added half a jalepeno, diced, to the pressure cooker.
*Kale (2 leaves, torn from the stem)
*1 small shallot, sliced
I baked the pizza for 15 minutes at 450 degrees.
Don’t bite into this expecting a traditional pizza taste. Do bite into this expecting fabulous, subtle flavor! I loved it!

This was thee best lunch I’ve had in a while! I woke up reallllly craving pizza but the last time I made vegan pizza, well…it was a disaster, to say the least. Grossest thing I’ve made. So I knew that I had to think outside the box of what I normally think of when I think ‘pizza.’
I ended up grabbing a piece of whole wheat pita bread and some non-fat refried beans. Threw on a half cup of the beans, cut up some yellow onion and popped it in the oven at 350. While I let that crisp up, I cut up some olives, tomatoes, and lettuce. Took the pita out of the oven, threw on the vegetables and BAM! My stomach is soooo happy!
This will now become a constant meal for mom and I!
