Vegan-Ease Pizza!

It’s pizza time! I love pizza, and this quick version from Laura Theodore’s Vegan-Ease truly satisfies!

Easy and so delicious, this delightful pizza cuts corners (and calories) by using a whole-grain sandwich wrap instead of pizza dough. The result is a crisp crust, topped with a mouthwatering combination of toppings, ready to eat in less than 20 minutes. Ideal to serve for a quick lunch or light supper.

Oh did I mention? To celebrate our Get Healthy in the New Year month at JazzyVegetarian.com, signed copies of Laura Theodore’s Vegan-Ease are on sale ($5 off the cover price) until January 31st! Jazzylicious!

Vegan-Ease Pizza

Ease Factor 1

Makes 1 to 2 servings

1 10-inch whole-grain sandwich wrap or tortilla

2 to 3 tablespoons low-fat prepared marinara sauce

¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning blend

1⁄8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

2 cups lightly packed baby spinach, washed and dried

4 green queen olives with pimento, sliced (see note)

10 to 12 slices vegan pepperoni or 4 very thinly sliced cremini mushrooms

1⁄3 cup shredded vegan cheese (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the sandwich wrap on a large baking sheet or pizza pan. Spread the marinara sauce over the wrap, in an even layer, leaving a slight margin around the edge for a “crust.” Sprinkle the Italian seasoning and crushed pepper over the sauce. Top with the baby spinach, pressing it down to make it more compact.

Top with the olives, vegan pepperoni (or mushrooms) and vegan cheese (optional). Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until crust is crisp and toppings are heated through. Cut into wedges and serve.

Chef’s Note: Pitted Kalamata olives may be used in place of the green olives.
