Check out below simple vegan pizza recipe even meat lovers will eat:

Pizza

• 1/2 of one Trader Joe’s garlic-herb pizza crust
• 1/2 cup each Red, Green and Orange bell pepper, loosely chopped
• 1/3 cup red onion, chopped
• 1 cup button mushrooms, chopped
• 1/2 tablespoon each dried or fresh basil, oregano and garlic powder
• 1/4 tablespoon sea salt

Sauce

• 15-ounce organic can tomato sauce OR 6-ounce organic can tomato paste
• 1/2 tablespoon each dried or fresh basil, oregano, garlic powder, granulated sugar
• 1/4 tablespoon sea salt to taste

Toppings

• 1/2 cup vegan parmesan cheese
• Red pepper flake + dried oregano

Directions


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and position a rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Bring large skillet to medium heat. Once hot, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, onion and peppers. Season with salt, herbs and stir. Cook 10-15 minutes until soft and slightly charred, adding the mushrooms in the last few minutes. Set aside.
  3. Prepare sauce by adding tomato sauce to a mixing bowl and adding seasonings and salt to taste. Adjust seasonings as needed. Set aside.  Note: If using tomato paste, add water to thin until desired consistency is reached.
  4. Prepare vegan parmesan if you haven’t already by blitzing raw cashes, sea salt, nutritional yeast and garlic powder in a food processor until a fine meal is reached. Transfer to jar and refrigerate to keep fresh.
  5. Roll out dough onto a floured surface and transfer to a parchment-lined round baking sheet. You’re going to add the pizza with the parchment directly to the oven to properly crisp the crust, so any round object will do as it’s not actually going into the oven.
  6. Top with desired amount of tomato sauce, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and the sautéed veggies.
  7. Use the baking sheet to gently slide the pizza directly onto the oven rack with the parchment underneath. Otherwise it will fall through.
  8. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.
  9. Serve with remaining parmesan cheese, dried oregano and red pepper flake. Yum ^_^
