Veggie Pizza with a Spinach Pesto

Veggie Pizza with a Spinach Pesto

Method

For the pizza dough

  • Preheat oven to 50* C (120* F) Fan.
  • Peel the onion and coarsely chop.
  • Beat all of the ingredients for the pizza dough in a food processor until completely combined. You want the mixture to have small pieces in it not to be completely pureed.
  • Place the “dough” in between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll out into a 30 cm circle. You can also do this with your hands instead of a rolling pin.
  • Bake for 2-3 hours until the dough becomes crunchy. You can keep the dough out of the refrigerator for up to 1 day.
  • Heat in the oven before serving.

For the spinach pesto

  • Beat all of the ingredients for the pesto sauce in a food processor until they are pureed and completely combined. You can add some water if necessary.
  • Transfer pesto sauce to a bowl and refrigerate until needed.

For the vegetables

  • Thinly slice the mushrooms, tomatoes and bell pepper.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the soy sauce, sugar, thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Gently stir to combine and set it aside for 20-30 minutes to allow the vegetables to marinate.
  • When ready, remove the vegetables from the bowl and lightly drain.
  • Transfer to a small baking pan and bake in the preheated oven until they soften.
  • Remove from oven and set aside.
  • You can store the vegetables in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

For the pizza

  • Spread the spinach pesto over the warm pizza dough, top with the vegetables and serve.
  • It does not need any more baking.
