Yesterday (June 29) was Vegan Pizza Day 2013, and you won’t be surprised that I was glad to participate. I like to do something a little different on this special occasion so this time I made a “white” pizza with artichoke hearts and broccoli.
While the dough for the crust was rising, I steamed some broccoli florets for a few minutes, and then cooled them off with some cold water. After they were cooled I tossed the florets with some olive oil and crushed garlic.
When the dough was ready, I pressed the crust out onto an (olive) oiled pizza pan, and sprinkled Daiya mozzarella style shreds over it, and then added the broccoli and artichoke hearts. I baked the pizza for 20 minutes in a 425 degree oven. When Sweetie saw it, he said, “It’s a masterpiece.” I have to admit, I was pretty proud of this creation.
I hope everyone had a great weekend whether or not they celebrated Vegan Pizza Day!
