I will be posting videos soon of me making the cheese and the pizza, which is now in the oven. Oh sooo good!!!!
It is getting late and I wanted to find a quick pizza crust to make that had good reviews, too. My Favourite Vegan Pizza seemed to fit the criteria. A tweak by jentastic suggested sprinkling italian seasoning on the dough, a suggestion I followed.
1 1/2 t yeast
1 C water
1 T oil
2 1/2 C white flour (use only 2 C to start)
I mixed these all together. Then kneaded for a minute or so. A rolling pin is real handy to spread the dough to the corners of a rectangular cookie sheet. I covered this with plastic wrap and let sit for 15 minutes while I prepped the vegetables.
For the pizza toppings I used this site for their recipe. Again great reviews. I am getting so hungry!!!
Ingredients for toppings:
!/2 each of yellow, orange, green pepper
1/3 of a red onion
a generous amount of button mushrooms - I love mushrooms and the buttons were huge. :)
some fresh basil
they say to use salt but I try to keep it down to a minimum.
Italian seasoning for sprinkling on the dough
1/2 - 3/4 C pizza sauce
Slice all the vegetables thinly. Set in groups. First the onions were 'roasted' lightly in oil in a frying pan, then the peppers were added, and finally the mushrooms. Saute until all vegetables until lightly roasted.
I used a jar of pizza sauce (smart way to save the leftovers) and spread about 1/2 to 3/4 C on the dough. Spread the roasted vegetables on top evenly and top with cut up fresh basil leaves.
This smells so delicious!!!
Out of the oven was not such a safe place - devoured in minutes. :)
Note: I added some salt to the top to help bring out the flavours. It was a bit bland upon the first tasting. That sentiment did not last long.
