(I just logged in and found this saved to draft… from March 2011!)
I’m not going to state that I am even capable of posting religiously… but here’s a new recipe :D
I came a across a blog recently that’s got some great recipes, The Snacking Squirrel. She just posted about some pizza she has made I decided I needed to hop to and make it! It’s got some pretty unique ingredients that I questioned at first, but in the end it was delicious. I changed a few things around from the original recipe and doubled it…
2/3 C Wheat Flour
1/4 C Wheat Bran
4tsp Nutritional Yeast
1tsp Baking Powder
1/2tsp Baking Soda
1 Head of Cauliflower, pureed in a food processor
1 C Fat-free Refried Beans
1/4 C Egg Whites
2tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
The Dry Ingredients
Heat oven to 350 and oil the pan you intend to use.
Mix up your dry ingredients, the flour, wheat bran, nutritional yeast, basil, oregano, thyme, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Mix wet ingredients into a bowl: cauliflower, refried beans, egg whites, water, and apple cider vinegar
Mix wet and dry ingredients together and put batter into a baking pan. Spread out with a spatula. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes. I actually didn’t let mine cook long enough and it was rather mushy as an end result, so make sure you cook it enough.
Use your favorite pasta sauce. The original recipe calls for adding salsa, which I did, but it didn’t really suite my taste.
Spread pizza crust with sauce and add your favorite toppings. I chose spinach, broccoli, green peppers, and tomatoes. I used mozzarella on half and spread Daiya vegan cheese on the other half.
Step Six: Place pizza back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes till the cheese browns a bit.
Enjoy! You’ll be surprised, my non-vegan friends could not complain.
