Easy Vegan Recipes -30 day Vegan Blogging Challenge-vegan pizza

Ivelina  —  May 15, 2013

Hello , my friends

this evening I want to share with you a very easy vegan recipe for a real comfort food -pizza. Everybody loves a bit of  comfort food. No matter what I believe we all do emotional eating , even when you eat a salad of green leafy vegetables . Food is our intimate relationship with nature, that we explore every time we sit a the table and eat . Herbs and spices play a big part here and sometimes textures. I love the taste of basil ,the flavour of salty tomato and the texture of freshly baked bread , just out of the oven.

The unity of basil , tomato and bread comes in its better version of vegan pizza.

Here is what you need to make it:

This recipe makes 12 pita pizzas:

  • 12 pitas (plain or wholemeal )
  • 12 mushrooms
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 small  courgettes (zucchini)
  • 3 carrots
  • for the tomato topping
  • tomato pasata 
  • basil
  • olive oil
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • bay leaves
  • cloves
  • salt and pepper

 First make the tomato topping. Finely chop the onions and crush the garlic and season with salt and pepper . Then heat the oil and saute until the mix has a golden colour. easy vegan recipeAdd the tomato pasata and all the herbs and spices and let it cook on a low heat for about 10 -15 minutes.

carrots are ready

While the sauce is simmering you can prepare the vegetables . I use a brilliant vegetable slicer  from the salad master parties , that I held in the house . If you haven’t got any vegetable slicer you can simply grate the carrots and the courgettes( zucchini) . Here is how the courgettes look like .

many names for this green monster- courgette, zucchini , baby marrow

For a bit of extra richness I cooked the mushrooms as well , but if you want you can just chop them thinly and put them fresh in the oven. Also chop the pepper in thin sticks and that’s you ready to assemble your vegan pizza .

Thank you so much for visiting my site. I was born and raised in Bulgaria (a small country in  Eastern Europe). I moved to Northern Ireland when I was 22 years old, full of hope, big dreams and an adventurous spirit. I am the mother of four wonderful boys and although I am very grateful for each lesson I've learned in my life, I wish that some things might have happened sooner, but everything has it’s place and everything that is  worthwhile is not always easy.  I want to connect with you. Get in touch.

    I tried a vegan pizza not long ago and it’s one of the yummiest I have ever tasted. I am not a vegan but I am convinced now that you can make great pizza – even without meat – and stay healthy. When I get my own oven, I am ready to try some of these recipes.
