Ahhh. This was such a delicious, fast and easy vegan pizza. It hit the spot!
Miss Heather discussed her love of La Tortilla factory wraps the other day, and I completely concur. They’re high in soluble fiber, made with oat bran, and taste delicious!! I was getting ready to make a wrap when a craving hit.
HOT. PIZZA. Without dairy, pizza just doesn’t happen as often. I bought some nutritional yeast the other day and have been brainstorming uses-tonight one came to fruition.
Hummus+nutritional yeast… pizza topper?? Well here’s how the whole thing came together:
- I heated up a La Tortilla factory whole wheat wrap in a large, non-stick skillet.
- Mix 2-4 tbsp tomato paste (depending on how saucy you like it!!) with garlic powder and oregano.
- Spread tomato mixture on heated wrap then top with steamed black eyed peas. (I like these because they add protein and fiber… they make it a little more hearty. If you’d like you could use shredded chicken or crumbled (seasoned) tofu.
- Sprinkle hot pepper flakes (optional), add desired veggies (cooked mushrooms, roasted red peppers, artichokes, olives, cooked onions… whatever you desire.)
- Mix together 2 to 3 tbsp hummus (original will do) with 2 to 3 tbsp nutritional yeast. Add a pinch of turmeric for color and thin with water (up to 1 tbsp)
- Spread the “cheeze” on top of your pizza (still cooking in the pan)
- Top with fresh basil and halved grape tomatoes, if desired.
- Drizzle with tahini, then sprinkle paprika unevenly so it looks authentic.
- Place pan under broiler and broil until the corners of the wrap turn golden brown.
- Let rest a minute or two, then transfer to a cutting board and slice with a sharp knife.
Because it cooks from both the top and bottom, the pizza doesn’t get soggy. (cooking the veggies and using tomato paste instead of sauce helps too.) The combination of hummus, nutritional yeast and tahini actually taste like cheese!!
I’m sure it would work with other wraps, too!
Give it a try… I’ll be eating this every day for the rest of my life.
