alternate pizza universe
(insert twilight zone music here)
you have entered a universe where pizza is not only made without cheese, but without red sauce....
whuuuuut? yep, you heard me right--this is the tuscan white bean pizza from vegan on the cheap, quite possibly one of the best kept secrets in vegan cookbooks. mr. j downloaded it for me on my kindle and i've cooked a couple things from it and just love it times infinity. THAT is the book you get for the new vegan who is lead to believe that veganism is too expensive. i did cheat a little and used a pre made whole wheat crust from trader joe's-(not a huge splurge and at 99 cents it was an amazing time saver!). i also added banana peppers and olives. i subbed the roma tomatoes with sun dried ones from my pantry. super cheap to make and it is so rich, people will only think you picked it up from some fancy schmancy eatery.
more to come! enjoy those beans and for the love of pizza, stay vegan.
