My dad came out to LA to visit me last weekend to cash in on his Father’s Day dinner. He’s not vegan so I thought a great place for the both of us would be Mohawk Bend (because he also … Continue reading
As some of you may know, I LOVE pizza. I can’t think of a better food. So when it’s getting late and you think there is nothing to make for dinner, pizza will be your come to your rescue, put an arm around you, and say, “Hey Girl, chill out and eat me.”
I had package of crescent rolls (you know, the kind in that scary tube you have to squeeze to pop open…feels like I’m on the verge of a heart attack every time) and some randon veggies layin’ around so I made it all into a pizza! Duh.
You can use any veggies you like but here is what I had to work with:
Preheat the oven to whatever your cresent rolls packag says
Peeled and thinly sliced a potato and cooked in a little olive oil. I added some broth to steam them and cook them a bit faster.
Made some pesto (walnuts, basil, garlic, salt, broth, oil…all to taste) Be sure to blend the nuts alone first and chop the garlic before adding if you have a crappy blender like mine.
Ball 2 crescent rolls and roll it out into one dough for the pizza
Add your pesto and toppings (I used potatoes and tomatoes)
While that’s cooking heat up some fresh veggies like verts and brussels sprouts. Add a little salt and a few spoon fulls of maple syrup and have at it! Super easy dinner!
CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP!
I can’t go more than a week or two with out pizza. It’s my best friend. I do most if not all of my shopping a Trader Joe’s so I just grab a pre made dough and start piling things on! I know I have posted a similar pizza before but I have the strong belief you can never have too much pizza.
Set out your dough in a floured bowl if it needs to rise. Chop up your ingredients.
Here I used:
brussels sprouts, mushrooms, yams, and tomatoes I KEEP FORGETTING I HAVE ARTICHOKE HEARTS! Ugh I just remembered them! I bought them specifically for the LAST pizza I made and forgot then too! Moving on…
Toss the yams with some oil, salt, and pepper and roast them for 15 minutes at 450°
Then add the brussels sprouts and a tad more oil and s&p (maybe a tiny bit of broth if you yams are still pretty hard). Bake another 15 minutes
While the veggies are baking, cook your mushrooms in a saute pan with a touch of oil and s&p
Then assemble your pizza! I brushed mine with olive oil before adding the toppings.
CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP!
