  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground mustard
  • pinch of salt & black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • 1 pre-made pizza dough (or see the recipe below)
  • 1 can chickpeas washed and drained
  • 2 tbsp. passata
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 1 tsp pesto
  • Handful of rocket salad

Vegan Pizza Dough:

  • 1 tsp active yeast
  • 125 ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 150g white or a combination of white and whole wheat flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or other herbs
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced

 

Directions:

Vegan Pizza Dough:

  1. In a bowl, mix warm water, yeast and 1 tbsp flour. Let it sit for a few minutes to activate.
  2. Add the flour, salt, herbs and garlic and olive oil and mix in. Add another 3 tbsp flour and mix in. Get your hands in there to mix and knead for a few seconds into a soft slightly sticky dough. (Add another tbsp flour if needed). Gather the dough into a ball and let it sit for 15 minutes in a warm place.
  3. Add 1/2 tsp oil over the dough and spread with your hands. Gather the dough into a ball and place on parchment lined sheet.
  4. Use a bit of flour to spread the dough into a 13 to 14 inch size oval. Spread it depending on how thick or thin you want the crust to be. Keep the edges thicker than the center.

Creating your Vegan Pizza:

  1. Mix all the spices really well.
  2. Drain the chickpeas and transfer to a bowl. Add garlic, onion, salt and olive oil to the chickpeas and toss well to coat. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F / 220ºc. Shape the pizza crust. Spread the crust to about 14 inch size to make a thin crust large pizza. Brush with passata and olive oil. Spread the spices mix and chickpeas mix.
  4. Place sliced onions on top. Drizzle some of the pesto. Bake for 18 minutes/180C.
  5. Garnish with rocket salad. Drizzle some pesto, slice and serve.
