So the plan for this evening is to create the healthiest possible vegan pizza with as many organic, homemade ingredients as possible.
The crust is homemade whole-wheat bread dough.
For the sauce I used homegrown tomatoes that were a gift from friends from Vancouver and fresh basil, oregano, and rosemary from my garden.
I used this simple sauce recipe–it’s very fresh tasting because of the fresh tomatoes and herbs:
Fresh, Vegan Pizza Sauce
- 1 pound fresh tomatoes
- handful of fresh oregano
- handful of fresh basil
- handful of fresh rosemary
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or sugar)
- 2 medium cloves garlic
- 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- freshly ground pepper
- red pepper flakes
Blend it all up in the blender well in advance of pizza preparation, so the fresh herbs have a chance to meld into the sauce.
The toppings include fresh basil from the garden and fresh baby kale (also from the garden).
…and the vegan pizzas turned out brilliantly!!
