I make the crust from scratch using the recipe in La Dolce Vegan but I leave out the herbs for this pizza.
Jim likes white bread. I try to get him to eat a healthier alternative, but he won't. So I sneak things in where he won't notice. Like a whole wheat pizza crust. The recipe makes a lot, so I split it between two pans.
Here it is with some of the toppings. Disregard the onion bits all over the counter. I got sprinkle happy when I was putting this together. The recipe called for tomato sauce. I mixed some ketchup into the sauce to make it taste more burger-like.
Then topped with cheese and almost ready for the oven. I've used vegan cheese for this and it works quite well. This time I used real cheese - a mix of mozzarella and cheddar.
Voila! The finished product.
Every time I make this I forget how unbelievably good it is. It may take a bit of time to put together, but I get two pizzas out of it, so I wrap one for the freezer and on a night when I don't feel like cooking, I just throw it in the oven and dinner is served. In that respect, the little bit of extra time initially is well worth it.
And when you taste this....you'll see that it's definitely worth it!
