Super Healthy Vegan Pizza

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.

The “cheese” is  homemade meltable mozzarella: Part I and Part II

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

Ingredients:

  • 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).
