Vegan Mofo V Day 7 - Pizza Supreme
There aren't any especially good pizza places near us so we have to make do. Sometimes we order a few toppings on a cheeseless pizza or just get one with sauce and add whatever we want to it. Other times we will buy dough and throw something together really quickly. We do have some Tofurky and Amy's pizzas hiding in the freezer, but I like to save those for emergencies, like when we forget to plan enough dinners for the week or when I am on my own and don't feel like cooking.
Since it's mofo time, I thought I would make a pizza we could really enjoy. Plus, it fits perfectly into my magazine week. This is Southwestern Pizza from Family Circle (who won't let you search recipes without registering, so I can't link it). Anyway this is really easy and you can probably figure out what to do from the photo. They suggested using two 9" premade crusts, but I opted to roll my own out from a store bought dough ball. Then you do a layer of salsa, a layer of cheese (I used FYH Monterey Jack), beans, bell peppers and green onions. Bake it at 450 for about 15 minutes. I put way more of everything because I like my pizzas loaded up. Garnish with cilantro when serving and you're ready to go.
I can't believe the first week of MoFo is done and I've blogged everyday. I hope I can keep this up, gotta start planning for next week.
