It’s vegan pizza day, which I believe is the biggest holiday after Christmas. For this sacred day, I made kale, sweet potato and caramelized onion pizza with a homemade cheese spread and Upton Natural’s bacon and red pepper pizza with Teese.
Kale, Sweet Potato & Caramelized onion pizza
- 3/4 cup raw brazil nuts, soaked for 1 hour
- 3/4 cup chickpeas
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 teaspoons miso
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/2 onion, sliced
- 2 cups kale, finely chopped
- 3/4 cup cooked sweet potato, diced
- pizza dough (I used the recipe from the Vegan Table, which I highly recommend)
For the “cheese,” combine brazil nuts, chickpeas, garlic, miso, olive oil and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth. Add salt and pepper.
For the topping, slowly cook onions in a little olive oil until they are richly browned. With the sweet potatoes, I cheated and used a salad from Expressly Leslie. So feel free to add your favorite spice to the potatoes.
To assemble: spread “cheese” over pizza dough, cover with kale. Sprinkle sweet potatoes, then onions over the top. Bake according to your dough recipe.
