As a new vegetarian on a budget, there are two things that I love:
- experimenting with whatever veggies are in my fridge
Nothing is more fun and fantastic than a recipe that brings these two things together. And that’s exactly what this recipe did! I make this pizza crust all the time, because why wouldn’t I? I only need to use five ingredients that I never have to go to the store to buy. My bank account thanks me for this recipe. So does my stomach.
Once you make this crust, the rest is up to you! I happened to have a ripe avocado sitting on my counter the other day, so I grabbed that and decided to throw it on a pizza. You can’t really go wrong with pizza or avocado (which has tons of health benefits). And then, since this recipe makes enough dough for two personal pizzas, I made another one tonight. (And it was probably the most delicious pizza I’ve ever made.)
What you’ll need:
A little more than 1 c. flour (I recommend using whole-wheat flour!)
1/2 tbs. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 c. milk or water
1/8 c. butter
What to do:
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine all ingredients and flatten half of the dough on an oiled baking sheet. (Wrap up the other half and put it in the fridge for later.) Bake 10-12 minutes.
While the oven preheats…
Decide what you want on your pizza! The first time, I went for an avocado, spinach, garlic and mozzarella pizza.
I cut up the ingredients and sprinkled them on top of my lightly oiled crust. Tip: Don’t add garlic right away. Overheated/burnt garlic can taste a little bitter. Actually, there are quite a few rules you should follow when cooking with garlic.
The next day…
Using the leftover crust, I made a spinach, garlic and mozzarella pizza with tomato sauce. Big time yum.
I hope you love this crust and use it in your kitchen as much as I do! Share your own meat-free pizza creations with me and other veggie lovers on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #GoingGreensPizza. Bon appetite!
