Home Made Vegan Pizza
Happy New Years!
I don't know about you, but I'm feeling a little um lethargic this morning. 2012, is the first new years that I have rung in outside of Canada, and with out snow. I have to admit it feels strange to ring in a new year far away from winter. After a night of dancing and staying up late to watch the fire works pizza sounds great. And what sounds better than vegan cheese stuffed pizza crust?
For the Pizza Dough Combine:
1 tsp sucanat
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 tbsp yeast
1 tbsp olive oil
and stir together in a large bowl
in a smaller bowl combine:
in 1 tsp salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup spelt or all purpose flour
plus thyme, and oregano, and a dash of garlic powder.
slowly stir in the dry mixture until well combined, knead for 5 minutes and cover with a damp towel. Let the dough rise for at least one hour.
pre heat the oven to 425F
Roll out the dough on a floured surface and be sure to stretch the dough well. You will want the dough to stretch beyond the limits of the pan.
Sprinkle some non dairy cheese around the edge of the pizza pan, and carefully fold the dough over pinching the crust closed.
Dress the pizza with tomato sauce and your favourite toppings.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the pizza is nice and crispy.
