Michelangelo’s favorite food to eat all the time; one of my favorite treats of all time. It can make you think of Italy (or if you’re familiar with Cleveland, Little Italy) or it can make a quick snack to grab on the go. Now most places don’t have a vegan option to buy by the slice, so this one you will have to make on your own and heat in the microwave. Here’s the lowdown on how to make a pizza even the TMNT will drool over! WARNING: READ THE LABELS! SOME ITEMS MAY CONTAIN MILK, EGG OR CHEESE!
Pizza dough. This is one thing you can either make from scratch at home or buy Betty Crocker pizza dough mix and make at home. Betty Crocker is the only vegan one I found at Kroger. Follow directions et voíla. I have never used frozen pizza dough before, but when I do, I will post results.
The sauce. You can use great auntie Angelina’s sauce or you can find some canned stuff on the shelf. I just prefer to use half cup of ketchup and some Italian seasoning (Read: Don’t hate/judge. I am trying to make this easy on you). If you want to add veggies to your sauce, go for it champ!
The cheese. The only one I would EVER consider is Daiya mozzarella cheese. Don’t try anything else, or Raphael Will kill you.
The toppings. As long as its vegan, go for it. I have tried Yves pepperoni before with less than okay results. I ended up dehydrating a mixture of mashed kidney beans, butter beans, Italian seasoning, fennel seed and some flour for an hour and that tasted better.
So there you have it folks. That is how you pull those awesome turtles out of the sewer to protect you from Shredder.
