Roast Vegetable Pizza

Vegan Pizza.

Here’s a nice idea, which is readily adaptable…for a tasty pizza where cheese is completely superfluous… all day long ! 🙂

For the base layer I sautéed finely grated courgettes with crushed garlic salt and pepper… and that worked out really well …will do again).

Ready-made vegan pizza bases are commonly available in the shops, but I can’t say that I’ve found one as good as home-made …and it really isn’t that much faff… you can even make a batch, and freeze the dough for future use….
