If you know how much I loved pizza before I went vegan, you know how picky I am about “alternatives” to my old favorite food.
I miss “real” pizza less than I thought I would and I definitely don’t miss the upset stomach and bloating I used to accept from eating dairy.
There are few vegan pizza options that taste the same – except for places like Screamers or brands like Amy’s that truly mimic the pizza taste without dairy, and I highly recommend trying them out.
THIS specific recipe isn’t meant to try and pass as pizza, for me, it’s a great healthy swap for when I have the craving but still want to keep my meal nutritious.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 Trader Joe’s cauliflower pizza crust
- approx. 1/2 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
- 1 cup shredded spinach
- 1/3 cup Trader Joe’s vegan pesto
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 3 tbsp GoVeggie vegan parmesan cheese
Here’s what to do:
Bake the cauliflower crust according to the package instructions. Before the last 5 minutes of broiling, top the crust with the pizza sauce, then the pesto in a few spots, then the rest of the toppings. Broil for 5 minutes or until you see the crust turn golden brown. Serve hot and reheat in a toaster oven for the next day. Enjoy!
