✨✨So I was informed by pretty much everyone in my family that putting broccoli on ...
... a pizza is a blasphemous act. Trust me, I'm aware that most of the world thinks this too.✨✨
✨✨Oh, but it gets better. When they found out that it didn’t even have dairy cheese they nearly disowned me. If you’re with them on these opinions, feel free to find another recipe because today we’re making a vegan pizza.✨✨
✨✨Cheesy Broccoli "Cheddar" Pizza (Vegan+GF)✨✨
Peppers and mushrooms aren't the only veggies that get to star on a pizza. Here's a fun way to add more veggies to your life.
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 4 - 6 servings
1 pizza crust *see note
3 cups fresh broccoli florets, chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, mined
1 onion, diced
3/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 cup unflavored plant-based milk
2 tablespoons cashew butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
sea salt & pepper to taste
shelled hemp hearts optional
Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Line a pizza pan with parchment or lightly grease with oil.
In a medium non-stick pan, cook the onion, garlic, and broccoli with olive oil until the broccoli begins to soften and garlic is browned. Pour in the milk, lemon juice, cashew butter, and nutritional yeast and stir over heat until it begins to thicken.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Roll out the prepared pizza crust dough into a large circle as thin as you'd like (I usually do about a 12-inch circle). Spread the mixture over the pizza and sprinkle the top with hemp hearts. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow it to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Recipe HERE or you can use your own (or try my fave "everything bagel" crust!) For this pizza I actually used a pre-made pizza dough from Trader Joe's. You can find pre-made dough from most grocery stores.
