Vegan Pizza For Your Tummy
Hey, how’s World Vegetarian Week going for you? I’ve been vegan for over ten years and was vegetarian for another ten years before that. It’s great to know that my body is not a graveyard for tortured animals. Know what I mean?
I don’t eat animals because they are my friends. I’d much rather feed grapes to chickens and turkeys than eat their lifeless bodies. I could get into more detail about how being vegan has also helped me reduce my cholesterol and become a better athlete and protect the environment. But honestly, even if those benefits didn’t exist, I’d still go vegan for the animal rights reasons.
Having said that, here’s a recipe for a vegan soy cheese, spinach, sausage pizza. It’s super easy, but you get the point and can mix it up any way you’d like. Other than the ingredients, all you need is an oven, a pan, and preferably a small kitchen shredder. I tend not to really make elaborate meals, and believe me this will take less than 30 min to make including the time in the oven.
- Soy cheese (I prefer Follow Your Heart brand cheddar or mozzarella, but whatever brand and variety you like)
- Pizza crust (I prefer Rustic Crust, but anything works)
- Tomato sauce
- Gimme Lean Sausage (or any other variety)
- Spinach (frozen or fresh)
- Olive Oil
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Break the sausage into small pieces, put into a pan with a tablespoon of oil, and heat on medium for about 3 minutes.
- Add spinach to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes then turn off the heat and set aside.
- Coat the top of the crust with a very thin layer of oil.
- Put a layer of sauce on the crust.
- Then spread the mixture of spinach and sausage on top.
- Now shred a layer of soy cheese on top of that.
- Put in the oven for 15 minutes.
- Take out of the oven and email me a photo of your masterpiece.
- Ok, now you can eat it.
- Now set that pizza photo as your default on Facebook or MySpace so your friends can be jealous.
