Fun Fri(Food)Day: Veg Pizza and Yum Dessert
HomeMade Veggie Pizza
(I want to eat this all over)
The crust takes a few hours, but not that much of your time (it just sits) so if you have reading to do or internets to browse it's totally worth it.
Crust: (adapted from Vegan with a Vengeance)
dissolve 11/2 tablespoons in 1 cup of warm water add 2 1/2 teaspoons of yeast (or one package) sit in a warm place until yeast gets foamy (she says ten minutes, mine takes like 1)
In another bowl mix
3 cups all-purpose flour (or substitute one cup with whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour)
1 teaspoon of salt
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients plus 2 tablespoons of olive oil, stir until combined then kneed on clean, floured surface for 10 minutes.
Put in clean oiled bowl, cover with wet towel and let rise for an hour.
Come back and PUNCH it (my favorite part!) then kneed it for another minute and put it back in the bowl. Let sit for however long you want (ten minutes, two hours etc). Then divide in half. Roll out one half into the crust (save the other half for tomorrow or freeze or make two pizza's whatever)
1 can of tomato paste
1 cup water
pinch of salt
handful of italian seasoning
garlic cloves, diced, to your taste (I put about 3 in there)
rough tablespoon of onion
a shot of liquid aminos
a shot of hot sauce
a pinch of sugar (or agave)
crushed red pepper flakes to your taste
cook in a pot for like 15 to 20 minutes
carmalized onions (1 large onion, cook five minutes until tender add teaspoon of sugar, cook for 30-40 minutes until browned)
and special ingredient: peaches
