Pizza is one of the best things ever, so here’s a super easy step guide recipe for making one at home (using a pre-made base)! You can use all kinds of dairy-free cheese available – and in this one I’m using the Deliciously Free-From Cheddar-style with caramelised onions. It’s crumbly, it’s creamy, and the onions give it a sweetness that makes the pizza amazing to taste…
As I am using the Sainsburys cheese, I also got a pack of their stonebaked pizza bases. They were dairy free, egg free and sulphites free so they were good to go! (I also checked the Free-from aisle where they had gluten free bases but the GF ones had egg in- fyi any coeliac vegans 🙂 ).
WHAT YOU NEED – ingredients (serves
2 people 1 person)
After the base, tomato sauce, and cheese you can pretty much just pick all your favourite toppings- anything you like- but this is what I used below (all organic veg!):
- pizza base
- napolina tomato pasta sauce
- cheddar-style cheese with caramelised onions
- ¾ medium red onion, chopped
- 1 large red chilli, chopped
- ½ cup of pitted black olives, whole
- an inch of ginger root, finely chopped
- ½ inch of turmeric root, finely chopped
- 2 large leaves rainbow chard, chopped
3. Pre heat your oven to around 200 degrees celsius (gas mark 5/6).
4. Once you’ve prepared and chopped all your veg and toppings cover the base ready to go in the oven. (I realise I kind of used a few too many olives, but I like olives! If you’ve got a favourite ingredient and you want to fill the pizza with it- I say go for it!)
5. Put it straight in the oven. It doesn’t need long, just enough for the cheese to melt, and the base to heat up to a good temperature. All the veg could be eaten raw, so as soon as the cheese is melted you can take it out. Anywhere from 5-8 minutes.
6. Then I took it out to add the rainbow chard. Reason for adding the greens later is that the rainbow chard tastes really nice, fresh and crunchy kept raw (besides being super nutritious) – and it only needs a couple of minutes on the pizza to make it sure it sinks in with the rest of the toppings. So sprinkle the chopped greens over the top for a bit of green to the colour palette (it looks pretty, and it’s so good for us to ‘eat a rainbow’ of colours in our food).
7. Back in the oven for a final 2 minutes just so the greens can sit nicely with the rest.
8. Then you’re ready to eat! Plate it up and chop into your slices (chopping it purely because I couldn’t fit the whole thing in at once!) But in all seriousness it was amazing- a really tasty cheesy pizza like no other. Awesome meal that anyone will love, whether vegan, veggie, flexitarian, or omnivore meat eater. We hope you enjoy!
