Happy Friday everyone, tomorrow is vegan pizza day so I’m getting my pizza dough ready a little early. I have been cutting way back on gluten so a gluten free pizza crust is in order.
I’ve never used this mix before so I’m curious to see how it turns out. The recipe called for 2 eggs, but this could easily be replaced with flax meal and water. The vegan recipe is on the back of the package so there is no guess work involved.
Here is my flax meal soaking
Here is the dough ready to rise, I like how the dough looks dotted with the flax. After the dough is finished rising I’ll just pop it in the refrigerator and it will be ready to bake tomorrow. Now I can start thinking about the best part, the toppings. I like vegan pizza more than I like pizza with cheese, I never thought I would be saying that because I was a cheese addict before. For the base I’m thinking about using caramelized onions and a walnut pesto. The onions will be a nice soft bed for the rest of the toppings and the pesto will make the pizza moist. The walnuts are soaking so they will be all ready to go for tomorrow. I’ll combine them with what ever herbs look good at the farmers market.
For now I’m just going to have another glass of wine and enjoy my Friday night. See you tomorrow with the finished product and happy vegan pizza day.
One more thing, if you have time please check out my latest green smoothie recipe on mySA it’s really delicious and filling.
