20 Vegan Pizzas (Gluten-Free Options Too)

I only eat pizza about four or five times a year, but when I get a pizza craving... It's a BIG craving and I pretty much drop all other dinner ideas. They don't have to be a "naughty" meal. You can ditch the bread-crust altogether and use portobello mushrooms as the base, create a baked cauliflower crust, make a crust out of mostly ground flaxseeds....you can also omit cheese and just stick to a tomato sauce and tons of veggies on top. I have to say that I lovvvve a bit of Daiya shredded cheese on my pizzas though.
 
*Some Healthy Tips:
  • Use pitas/tortillas and make thin crust pizzas
  • Use thin burger buns (make sure they are vegan) and make mini pizzas
  • Use portobello mushrooms or large sliced zucchini as the "crust"
  • Make a baked cauliflower crust (brilliant idea - not a vegan recipe though, so replace with vegan cheese and vegan egg substitute)
  • Make a gluten-free flaxseed crust (use vegan egg substitute)
  • Lighten up on the cheese and add on extra veggies
  • Make a salad and/or veggie side dish so you have some lighter fare as well, in case you go all out and make a cheesy bready-goodness of a pizza. Having salad on the side helps to prevent overeating of the heavier foods (in my experience)
  • Prechop the veggies and make the sauce beforehand so you don't have to prepare everything all at once.

    I made a pizza tonight. For the crust I used ground up rolled oats, ground flax, water, garlic powder, nutritional yeast and about 1 tsp olive oil and cooked them on the stove top! Made a yummy veggie mixture of tomato, garlic, chickpea "tuna", cajun vegan mayo, spinach, brussel sprouts and vegan parm and added it on top of the crust. yum yum :)
