5 Ingredient Vegan Pizza

Vegan Pizza on a Baking Steel

I need to continue to remind myself that not every pizza needs to have cheese.  I am not proud, but i likely eat more pizza than any other human on earth. Fresh chef craig may be a close second.  Just because it’s pizza, doesn’t mean it needs cheese.  I’m not saying cheese is unacceptable, but too much isn’t necessarily a good thing.  And there are so many tasty options for vegan pizza. Today I crushed a few avocados and spread it on a naked pizza.  Then I took some arugula leaves and lightly seasoned them with sea salt and olive oil.  It was refreshing, vibrant, healthy and it satisfied my pizza craving. All it took were these 5 ingredients, an instant vegan classic.
