Vegan PIZZA!

There really is nothing better then making your own pizza (correctly). I make pizza two different ways. The one I usually make is a cast iron pizza, the second is a traditional oven baked pizza. There's no need for ANY cheese to enjoy a delicious pizza.

black olives
*tomato sauce
nutritional yeast
pizza dough
unbleached flour

Most of the ingredients were from our garden, which gave this an awesome taste. I highly encourage you to always use fresh, local, organic produce to get the most nutrient rich, and tasty whole foods available.

For the first time, I actually used a rolling pin to stretch out the dough. I had a rectangular 9"14" pan I wanted to cook this on, so the traditional pizza stretching wasn't necessary.  Set the oven to 350 - 375 degrees, once preheated, put in the pizza. After about ten minutes, take the pizza off the pan and set directly on the rack for another 5-7 minutes.

* The tomato sauce was a simple mix of tomato paste, tomato sauce, chopped tomato, salt, pepper, powdered garlic, onion powder, dried oregano, raw unrefined sugar.
