Nacho + pizza = a sublime combination. Deeply craving pizza, I decided to whip up a pie that would satisfy my appetite without involving globs of unhealthy cheese. I decided to turn to Daiya, my new and only favorite vegan cheese. I paired the creamy “cheese” with another buttery ingredient, avocado. Can you say heaven? Um, yes! Who says a pizza needs cheese? And who says a vegan pizza need to be ridden of “cheese”? Neither are the least bit true, my friend. Finished with a few jalapenos to just slightly cut some of the richness, this pizza was an absolute winner.
Vegan Nacho Pizza
-1-14 inch pizza crust
–3/4 cup to 1 cup pizza sauce (I like my pizza saucy, so I lean more towards the 1 cup)
-1 cup cheddar Daiya cheese
-Jarred jalapenos, handful
-1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
Roll out dough and bake according to instructions, removing just before dough is completely cooked. Spread sauce across crust, and sprinkle with garlic powder. Top with Daiya cheese and sprinkle with oregano. Scatter jalpenos across pizza. Return to oven and bake until cheese is almost melted, about 5 minutes. Remove and spread avocado slices across pizza. Bake an additional minute. Serve.
