Vegan Artichoke Pizza with Onions and Peppers

Onion and Artichoke Pizza recipe

The added toppings on this vegan artichoke pizza —caramelized onions, red bell peppers, and basil — make it extra tasty. Serve with a big salad (add chickpeas or other beans for extra protein). Though it’s filling, this pizza goes down easy, so double the recipe if you’re feeding a hungry group. Though completely optional, tucking thin slices of fresh tomato between the pizza sauce and the cheese gives it a delicious summery flavor. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→

Olives add great flavor to this vegan spinach pizza. It features a generous helping of baby spinach; or, you can use baby arugula instead. Do try this with pepper jack or other spicy vegan cheese, which gives it a bit of a kick. Serve with a colorful salad — add some beans or chickpeas for more protein.

Pineapple Veggie Pita Bread Pizza

Pineapple and Veggie Pita Pizza

This pizza variation could not be easier. I have found the key to vegan pizza is loads of fresh toppings and contrasting flavors. In this pineapple veggie pizza on pita bread, the sweet fruit mingles with a myriad of fresh vegetables — the more the better.

Vegan Eggplant Pizza with Fresh Tomatoes and Olives

Eggplant, fresh tomato, and olive pizza

Make a simple vegan eggplant pizza special by adding fresh tomatoes and olives to the topping. 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 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, as this makes 6 slices, serving 2 to 3. Serve with a big colorful salad containing chickpeas for a simple and tasty meal.  more→
