Vegan Pizza With Garlic Bread Crust

Ingredients (serves 4 to 6)

For pizza crust:

  • 1 tbsp or 1 pkg of pizza yeast
  • 1 ¾ cup to 2 cups of organic all purpose flour (+ more for rolling)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp raw organic turbinado sugar
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (cold pressed)
  • 2 tsp vegan margarine (melted)
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed into melted margarine

For pizza toppings:

  • 1 can of organic pizza sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil chopped
  • ¼ cup of black olives halved
  • ¼ cup sliced fresh pineapple (small pieces)
  • ¼ cup sundried tomatoes cut in slices
  • ¼ cup chopped purple onion
  • ¼ cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 pkg Tofurkey Chickn’ (thai basil or other) (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheight

To make pizza dough:  combine yeast, salt, sugar and 1 cup of flour in a large bowl.  Add warm water and olive oil to the dry mixture.  Stir until all ingredients are blended, add remainder of flour ½ cup at a time until mixture reaches a dough texture.  Using your hands, knead dough adding flour as needed for approximately 4 minutes.  On a flat floured surface, roll out pizza dough until it is approximately ¼ inch thick.   Place dough on a medium to large pizza stone.  Fold over the sides approximately 1 ½ inches all around the edges (making a crust).

Top pizza evenly with toppings in the following order (prevents some ingredients from burning): pizza sauce, basil, sundried tomatoes, onion, black olives, pineapple, mushrooms and Tofurkey if desired.

For garlic pizza crust:  brush margarine/garlic mixture evenly over the folded crust.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until crust starts to become light brown.  Let cool and set for 5 minutes before cutting
