Vegan Pizzas

In two previous posts I mentioned using left over pizza dough. Now, after 6 months of pain and suspense, I offer you closure…
Fresh Tomato Pizza
Think of this image as two things. Firstly – a tasty pizza and Secondly – the thrilling conclusion to a gourmet saga; For what lies in front of you is the source.

Fresh Tomato Pizza with Olives, Red Onion, Vegan Cheese & Basil

  • Fresh Tomato
  • Olives
  • Red Onion
  • Vegan Cheese
  • Take a guess
  • Sorry, that wasn’t called for. My awesomely verbous naming scheme does give some pretty strong hints as to what might actually be on the pizza though. The only thing that isn’t in the name is some kind of sauce to put on the base, and it was so long ago I can’t actually remember what I used.
  • so maybe i’m not that sorry
  • also, I’ve since found out that the cheese I used wasn’t actually vegan. I don’t know why you’d set out to make soy cheese then go ahead and throw a bunch of dairy in it. Seems like you should have just made regular cheese. And before you say your dad has bad cholestoral, or can’t handle his lactose, or is just fat. Keep in mind that I don’t know you or your dad.

Pizza Due (due is Italian like pizza lol)
Sweet Chilli, Tofu, Pineapple Pizza
This one has crumbled tofu mixed with sweet chilli sauce and a splash of soy sauce, pineapple, red onion, Olives, Vegan Cheese (non-vegan grrr) and Basil on it. It was also pretty great.

To make either of these at home first make some dough (flour, yeast, water. google what you then do with these if you can’t figure it out), then put stuff on top of the dough, then put ALL of that in the oven.

And because its been 6 months have another picture

Nut Caramel Pizza

More fun with left over pizza dough!

This one was made a while ago so I’m not too sure whats on it.  Pretty sure there’s lots of nuts though…

After rolling out the dough I chopped up all the nuts I could find, maybe some flax seeds too from the looks of it, and put them on top.  Brown sugar and margarine were liberally applied and it was cooked under the grill.  My teeth hurt for weeks after eating this one.

Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Caramalized Onion Pizza

Posted in Food with tags , , , , on August 2, 2009 by jwshay

I had some left over pizza dough in the freezer so I decided to put some stuff on it.  Starting from the base up:

Sauce:

  • Canned Tomatoes (Drained)
  • Garlic
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Dried Oregano

To make the sauce put everything in a pan with some olive oil.  Red wine vinegar can be overpowering so I only used a very small amount.  The oregano was a bit wierd.  When I was making this I didn’t know what was going on top.  It’d work fine with something a bit more traditional but its not going in if I make this one again.

Stuff on top:

  • Onions ~ 3-4
  • Sweet Potato
  • Chickpeas
  • Brown sugar
  • Cumin
  • Coriander (Fresh & Ground)

Slow cook the onions in a big pot until they start to caramalize.  You can look into how you’re meant to do this.  I never seem to have a problem with it.  My basic formula is lots of time plus low heat – something always happens eventually.  Everything else minus the fresh coriander was then added in no particular order.  I don’t have an oven at the moment so the sweet potato was cut up small enough to be fully cooked before it was thrown on the base.

Assembly:

Put everything on the base and cook in the oven.  Or if you happen to be me and your oven is cactus, use an elaborate system of switching between the stove top and grill.  Coriander goes on last to garnish.  Lime would probably taste good if you had some.

Consumption:

Eat off a chopping board in front of futurama.
