Equipment

  • oven
  • Pizza Pan
  • Pizza Cutter

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 tbsp Plant Based Butter (Earth Balance)
  • 1 tbsp Avocado oil
  • 4 tbsp Marinara (I used mushroom marinara pasta sauce)
  • 4-5 slices Follow Your Heart Mozzarella slices (Sliced into thin long pieces)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning (contains mixture of dry parsley, oregano, basil, thyme)
  • 1/4 cup spinach
  • 1 Banza Chickpea Pizza Crust Or here is a homemade recipe I love (Replace the cow’s milk with soy milk): https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/244638/no-yeast-pizza-crust/
  • 2 slices Sweet Earth Italian Plant Based Pepperoni

Instructions
 

  • Rub avocado oil all over the pizza crust (homemade or premade)
  • Place marinara sauce at the center of the crust, then spread in a circular motion towards the edges. Sauce will be thin when spread, avoid a thick spread.
  • Lay mozzarella slices vertically as noted in the photos above. Then lie the rest of the slices horizontally. This will form a net like pattern.
  • Chop the spinach, and sprinkle over the pizza. Tear pepperoni slices or slice into squares, and spread on pizza.
  • Bake pizza for 10 minutes. May be longer for premade pizza crust - see recipe above.
  • Brush or rub butter around the crust edges.
  • Sprinkle Italian seasonings on to the crust, starting at the edges and moving toward the center.
