It’s Somer Saturday and some magical 20 minute dinners can happen when you have a well stocked fridge and pantry. This Pizza is totally doable start to finish in that time frame IF you have the ingredients/supplies on hand.
Grapefruit sized portion of this 5 minute artisan bread dough (incredibly easy master recipe, I always have some version of it in my fridge, this particular batch was 7 days old and made an absolutely incredible sourdough crust)
Handful of fresh basil (mine was courtesy of Amanda’s garden!) Plus a bit extra for sprinkling at the end
1/4 to 1/2 C. pasta sauce (homemade is best, but jarred will do)
1 C. moxerella cashew cheez slices or other vegan cheese
2 or 3 vine ripened sliced tomatoes
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Method: Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Roll out refrigerated artisan dough onto a lightly oiled baking sheet. Get it as thin as you can! Prick the dough all over with the tines of a fork. Spread with pasta sauce, I go lighter on it to allow the other flavors to shine through. Arrange cheez, basil and tomatoes over the dough. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Do not let rise (that’s right, no rising time necessary). Bake for 10 minutes or until cashew cheez is nice and browned. Remove from oven and sprinkle with a bit more freshly chopped basil. Drool. Serve with salad greens.
Today’s giveaway is my personal copy of “Blissful Bites: Vegan Meals that Nourish Mind, Body and Planet” by Christy Morgan. Despite the great recipes inside, I’ve hardly used it and think it needs a new home where it will be more appreciated.
