Vegan Nacho Pizza
When I told my wife of the concept of Nacho Pizza, she wasn't impressed. In truth, the concept of it made her a bit sick to her stomach. It is a pizza that could only be born in North America; no self respecting Italian is going to be serving Nacho Pizza, let alone Vegan Nacho Pizza. And while my wife isn't Italian, she does have the more classic take on Pizza that dominates the European landscape, thin crust, one to three toppings and made fresh. Actually that kind of pizza is pretty damn good but sometimes one needs to double down on something that isn't that healthy and embrace the insanity.
Step one of any good recipe is turn up your favorite Josh Ritter album as loud as you can.
Step two is make yourself a little Salsa and Guacamole.
4-5 small to medium tomatoes, seeds removed and diced finely
1/4 of a large onion, diced to approx the same size of tomato dice
1/2 lime, juiced
Parsley, finely cut and to your own desire
Salt, to your preference
Cumin, a good pinch
Dried Chilies (not the same as chili powder)
Mix to all together and let sit for at least an hour
1 large very ripe Avacado
1/2 lime, juiced
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp of cumin
Use a fork and mix avocado until it breaks down to a sauce. Add remaining ingredients and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Take about 500g of pizza dough (bought or fresh made) the choice is yours...
Add pizza sauce:
Mix together. Amounts of each are personal preference.
Finely dice the following:
Before adding any vegan cheese (or normal cheese if you would like) add the onions. Then a thin layer of cheese about 50 grams worth.
Add your veggies from step 4 and 1 veggie burger (either self made or bought, I used a bio veggie burger from Aldi Nord)
Add remaining vegan cheese (again if you want you can use the cow variety if you want) about 100 grams worth and bake. 220 degrees C for about 15 minutes. (though keep an eye on it, it may be more time or less, depends on your oven)
When pizza is finished pull out of oven
Add roughly crushed tortilla chips
Add Guacamole and Salsa
Cut and enjoy!!
