Olives add great flavor to a traditional pizza, and a generous dose of baby spinach or arugula makes it healthier. Do try finding the pepperjack or other spicy vegan cheese, which gives this a bit of a kick.
A trio of delectable toppings—tomatoes, eggplant, and olives—make a simple vegan pizza special. It’s a perfect pizza to make on cool summer evenings, though you can enjoy it year round as long as you can find decent tomatoes. Use tomatoes that are ripe yet firm, and that are dense and fleshy rather than seedy. Roma (plum) tomatoes are ideal for this. This pizza goes down easy, so double the recipe to serve a hungry crowd. Serve with a big colorful salad containing chickpeas for a simple and tasty meal. Photos by Dan Atlas. more→
