Wholesome Vegan Pizza

Are you ready for a wholesome vegan pizza? This is my go-to pizza when I come home and really don’t feel like cooking. It’s easily prepared and super satisfying. I made this pizza with an easy tomato sauce and topped with my favorite veggies. No need for cheese or any processed products. It’s healthy, nourishing and full of goodies!

But what about cheese?

During my first year of living plant-based, one of the things I discovered was how much I enjoyed pizza. Of course I’ve always liked pizza, but I also knew the dark side of the massive amount of cheese and fat in just one slice. But it didn’t take while, before I learned how easy, healthy and much more tasty a fat free vegan pizza actually is.

The best thing I’ve done, is quitting cheese on a pizza. In that way you’ll get plenty more flavors and I ensure that it’s much more satisfying.
