vegan pizza

I sometime miss pizza especially from Pizza Express, so I decided to make my own. I did not have enough time to make a bread base using yeast so I used a scone base and it did not disappoint.

 

Pizza base

175g self raising flour

half teaspoon of baking powder

50g vegan spread

soya milk

herbs

onion powder (optional)

salt and pepper

sieve flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl, add the herbs and onion powder, salt and pepper, rub in the vegan spread until you have crumbs and add enough milk to make a dough.

Get a baking tray and line with parchment paper, spray with oil and add rolled out dough. pop in a medium oven for 15 minutes.

Tomato Sauce

1 can of tomatoes

1 chopped small onion

1 garlic clove

herbs

1 teaspoon of maple syrup

salt and pepper

1 teaspoon of oil

Add oil and onions to a saucepan and cook until soft, then add the tomatoes, garlic, herbs and maple syrup. Reduce the sauce over a medium heat the test the seasoning.

Topping

small onion sliced

half a pepper sliced or chopped

Cup of mushrooms sliced

Some artichokes, olives and sundries tomatoes in oil

Make the pizza by spreading some tomato sauce onto the base then add the vegetables and top with the Violife cheese. Place in the middle shelf of the oven and cook for 2o minutes or until it is cooked to your liking.
