Vegan Spinach Pizza

Besides the fact that the crust is colorful, this pizza is definitely out of the ordinary. A rich, artichoke spinach dip filling is made mostly in the blender, diversifying this dish to be somewhere in between an appetizer and the main show - either way, it's something new and delicious to try making!

  • 1 can of artichokes drained
  • 1 small chopped white onion
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 2 large handful of baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup soaked raw cashews
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 cup plant milk
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tbsp tapioca starch/flour
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 pack dry activated yeast

  • 3 cups buckwheat or all purpose, gluten free flour
  • 1 tbsp cane sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp activated charcoal powder from coconuts for crust color

  2. Pour the salt over the flour in a bowl, then slowly add the water and yeast mix.
  3. Mix the dough until you need to work it in with hands, adding a few tbsp of grape-seed oil as you knead.
  4. Put dough into a bowl to rise for 1.5 hours.
  5. Sauté the onions in a pan with a little bit oil until translucent.
  6. Add garlic & spinach and sauté until wilted.

  9. Add the artichoke & beans to the processor & slowly add the rest of the plant milk until smooth.
  10. Sprinkle some semolina on the pizza pan so it doesn’t slide around and pour your entire mix over the dough and bake at 230C/450F for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.

This looks really good.. one question.. why the sugar?

@oink I think the sugar speeds up the fermentation process with the yeast. Otherwise it would have to break down more complex carbohydrates into sugar, which would take much longer
