Easy Green Pizza

Course Appetizer, Main Course, Side Dish
Cuisine Italian
Servings 2 people

Ingredients
  

  • 1 medium pizza crust or 2 small like pita bread. I used Trader Joe’s Kale & Broccoli crust
  • Vegan Pesto recipe below
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce optional
  • Toppings like mushrooms, sliced tofu, onions, olives, vegan parmesan or other vegan cheese, halved cherry tomatoes, baby arugula, balsamic glaze

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the crust according to package directions (if necessary).
  • Preheat the oven to 450
  • Spread evenly with pesto.
  • Drizzle with tomato sauce
  • Add toppings that are great cooked: tofu, mushrooms, onions, cherry tomatoes.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for about 7-10 minutes until the toppings are softened. You can do this on a baking sheet or directly on the rack for a crispier crust. Broiling for a few minutes is another option.
  • Remove from the oven and top with arugula, vegan parmesan and finish with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
