St Patrick's Day Green Pizza
vegan greens pizza. I think this one would work with cashew cream but for now I have only tried cheese. I baked the pizza with cheese on top, then spread it with cream cheese and pesto and topped it with greens. Delicious.
Baby Shark to a crowd (nicely accompanied by my 6 year old niece) than anything goes with pizza too. Actually, as well as wanting to create a green pizza for St Patrick's day, I wanted to get some vegetables into us. It is easy to just do a Margherita pizza if we are tired.
Check out more St Patrick's Day green food if you are into green or more pizza toppings.
And I am hoping that Shaheen will accept this for to Allotment to Kitchen and Veg Hog for Eat Your Greens.
Healthy Greens Pizza
1 batch of dough for a large pizza (we used half this recipe)
Grated cheddar cheese
Cream cheese (about 2 dessertspoons)
Pesto (about a dessertspoon)
Baby spinach (a handful or two)
Broccoli, cooked and chopped (about 1/2 to 1 cup)
Press out dough into large pizza tray (I line mine with baking paper but you could use polenta to line the tray). Drizzle with oil and cover with grated cheddar cheese on top. Bake until cooked but not too golden. I baked mine at 220 C for about 15 minutes on the middle tray of the oven so it did not crisp too much.
Mix approximately a couple of dessertspoons of cream cheese with a dessertspoon of pesto. Add a bit more pesto if you want a greener colour. (NB my pesto was home made and had been the in the freezer.) Spread over cooked pizza. Don't worry if it melts slightly.
Arrange baby spinach, chopped broccoli and cooked peas over cream cheese spread. Cut into wedges and eat hot. It should also taste good at room temperature or reheated but I haven't tried it.
