This is certainly one of the more delicious pizzas I have made. We enjoyed this pizza along with a group of friends recently at my apartment in Sydney. It was enjoyed thoroughly by both the vegans and non vegans, so I can highly recommend this as a recipe for anyone that’s just giving plant-based eating or is cooking for others that are not necessarily 100% plant-based or convinced that vegan food can taste delicious. No better way to improve the consciousness of a ‘skeptic’ than by cooking healthy food that tastes incredible.
The Tempeh used was from Organic Village which is available at Woolworths in Australia. If you are not from Australia and cannot find Chickpea Tempeh, then you can use a Soy Tempeh to substitute (worried about consuming Soy – Read my Is Soy Healthy blog to settle your nerves). The Almond Fetta I used was from Damona who specialise in plant-based cheeses. If you cannot get an Almond Fetta locally, you can easily substitute this for homemade cashew cheese.
Use the above recipe to come up with your own variations. Some other variations to consider:
The options really are endless. If doing a dinner party, I highly recommend mixing it up so you have pizzas with different nutritional offerings and flavourings. The great thing is you can use all of the extra ingredients to make a nice side salad too. Here’s some shots from the last pizza party I organised (note: some of the shots are before the pizza went into the oven so the cheese hasn’t melted).
