I LOVE pizza! But seriously, who doesn’t? My family likes to order pizza now and then, and even though I won’t eat the take-out variety, that doesn’t mean I have to miss out! I came up with this delicious creations over the weekend and I’m still dreaming about it!

 

Gluten free crust, vegan garlic parmesan sauce, topped with a little BBQ sauce, Brussels sprouts, and onions…. YUM!!! I made a small one, which I ate in one sitting. (It was ONLY 4 pieces!! 😉 ) This recipe is for one twice as large, so would feed two people. If I were feeding the whole family I would double this recipe and make two pizzas. This recipe is vegan, gluten free, soy free, processed sugar free, and corn free.

 

Easy Vegan Gluten Free Pizza

Crust

2 cups gluten free baking flour (I use Bob’s)

1 cup water

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 TBLS olive oil

1 tsp baking powder (I use aluminum free)

1 Tbls Pure Maple Syrup

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Put all crust ingredients in blender and pulse a few times to mix well.
  3. Pour crust mix into well greased baking dish. (I used a glass 11×7 dish that I greased with coconut oil.)
  4. Bake for 15 minutes then remove from oven.

 

Vegan Garlic Parmesan Sauce

1/4 cup raw unsalted cashews

2 garlic cloves whole +2 garlic cloves minced

1/2 cup water +1/4 cup water

2 TBLS chopped onion

1 TBLS olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp lemon juice

Pinch curry powder

Pinch tumeric

(I have found the curry and tumeric replace a bit of the “cheesy” flavor. But literally, just use a tiny bit. More is not better.)

Instructions:

  1. Add all ingredients except minced garlic and 1/4 cup water to small sauce pan.
  2. Simmer on low-medium for 10 minutes.
  3. Put into blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Add back to sauce pan. Shake 1/4 cup water in blender cup (to get any extra sauce left over) then add to pan.
  5. Add minced garlic and heat on low for 5 mins. You can add more water a tsp at a time if you want a thinner sauce.

 

Other Ingredients:

Your favorite BBQ sauce

Steamed Brussels sprouts (sliced)

Sliced Onion

1 TBLS Olive oil

1 TBLS Coconut oil

1/4 tsp Sea salt

1/2 tsp Onion powder

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

1/4 tsp Italian seasoning

1 large garlic clove, minced

Final Instructions:

  1. Mix together oils, spices, salt, and minced garlic. Use spoon to rub around edges of crust, saving a little to drizzle on to at the end.
  2. Add vegan parmesan sauce. Drizzle on a little bbq sauce.
  3. Add toppings. (sliced Brussels sprouts and onion.)
  4. Drizzle with remaining oil mixture
  5. Bake for approx. 10 minutes at 450 or until crust browns slightly and onions cook.
  6. Remove from oven, cut, and enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

EASY Vegan Garlic Parmesan Sauce!!! (YES!)


Okay guys. This one came out SO good I’m actually shocked. I wanted to make my breaded cauliflower wings today (recipe can be found in my recent recipe posts) but I wanted to try a new “wing” sauce. I used to love the garlic parmesan boneless wings from Buffalo Wild Wings, so I figured I’d give some garlic parmesan a shot. I was feeling the power of inspiration as I moved quickly through making the sauce. I didn’t even Google to see what other vegans use! Most vegans still use ingredients that I don’t so I’m usually on my own anyway. I wrote down each ingredient as I went. It came out better than I could have imagined and I didn’t even have to adjust! Score!! Now I want to eat this on everything. Maybe I should just eat it with a spoon. I’m thinking of making popcorn chickpea “chicken” to put this sauce on next time! A word of advice, you may want to double the recipe because it’s THAT good. This recipe is vegan, gluten free, soy free, corn free, and processed sugar free.
