Vegan Pizza: Pesto Potato PIzza


Hey hey hey! It's about time for a food post, yes? Maybe not a really detailed one, or one with the proper lighting ;) but a nice short one to fill some vegan pizza needs ;)

Full disclaimer: I'm absolutely, 100% of the time a red sauce and cheese (cashew cheese) kind of girl, and when I want pizza, that is what I want--- it is the best. But this one? It's pretty good too. Not the best (for me and my pizza needs), but pretty damn good. And certainly easy! 

How to:
-pre-heat oven at 550, or as high as it will go, make sure the rack is pretty close to the top.
-swipe a good layer of pesto, lots of garlic-y delicious pesto on your rolled out dough. *I have a few few pesto recipes that I will be sharing ;) 
-place a thin layer of the almost transparent potato slices on top. If you're not great with a knife, then a mandoline, even a cheap one, will be your savior. 
-drizzle olive or truffle oil on top (yum!), sprinkle of salt
-turn on broiler, bake 4 - 5 minutes
-once you pull the pizza out of the oven, sprinkle on some mizuna, arugula, mustard greens, or your other favorite greens
-a squeeze of lemon, and enjoy! 

Easy peasy, right?  I like this pizza option, because it's easy to make, feels fancy, and doesn't seem like it's lacking when you skip the cheese, but if you really want to, you could put cheese on top, vegan or not.


PS. That American Blogger film I mentioned the other day? It's been released for purchase today (HERE). I'm in it a tiny bit--- just the right amount, in my opinion ;) In general, I'm such a documentary girl (the only kind of movie I like to watch really), so this was nice and something we totally would have watched even if I wasn't in it and didn't love the people in it--- I really do love some of them! After watching the film, my post now seems like an even more fitting addition to this blogging story :) I enjoyed it! Good job, Chris. High fives to you ;) 

Okay, I'm hungry and off to make a late (non pizza) breakfast to start my day! Happy Wednesday, friends!

  2. Can't wait to put my hands on this pizza or any kind of pizza I've seen here.
    I'm so happy doing your cleanse, Drea, one and a half week of eating organic and minimally processed meals is more fun than I anticipated.
    Have a great day and I'm off to my lentil recipe. xxx

  4. My favorite pizza from Extreme Pizza is pretty much EXACTLY this.

    Also -- I am trying to figure out how I could possibly make pesto without a food processor. Because I no longer have one.

  5. I had a potato flatbread last weekend (really because every other flatbread had meat on it) and it was sooo delicious. It's funny that now a week later you're posting a potato pizza recipe. I'll def have to try this out!
