The best part of pizza is the toppings. For the kids pizza, we keep it simple, as they don't like to much "Stuff" on their pizza. Usually it's just sauce and cheese, though sometimes they might choose to have some red peppers or olives on there. But for The Man and I... we like our pizza piled high with veggies. We change it up each week, depending on what's in season, what we have in the house, and what we feel like. Last night's pizza was pesto, carmelized onions, spinach, sundried tomatoes and Daiya shreds. It was really good!
|Multigrain crust, pesto, carmelized onions, spinach, sundried tomatoes and vegan cheese|
1 ball of pizza dough (either homemade or store-bought)
corn meal, for dusting
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of sauce or pesto
Shredded vegan cheese
Toppings, as desired (onions, peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, olives, greens... whatever you like!)
Place pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 450. Dust pizza peel with cornmeal. use a generous amount, so your pizza won't stick. Next, stretch out your ball of dough into a circle, using plenty of olive oil to keep it from sticking to your hands. Place the dough on the peel, and top with sauce, cheese and toppings. I like to add a bit more cheese on top. Carefully slide the pizza from the peel onto the pizza stone. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is all nice and melty.
