Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Now that I follow the McDougall plan and Engine 2 diet, I find some very creative ways of making pizza. This recipe is the closest I’ve come to the NY pizza and calzones I used to love, without the fat, dairy and I’ll health.
- For dough use my challah recipe
- 1 cup vegan tomato sauce, salt and oil free, or use the recipe in my lasagna post
- Cashew parmasean, also in my lasagna post
- Steamed then Mashed potatoes
- Toppings of choice
Take a ball of challah dough, roll it out into a circle using a rolling pin with flour or your hands.
Top with sauce, cashew pamesean and other toppings of your choice.
For the calzone use a smaller amount of dough, it’s your choice how big or small you make it. Put the mashed potatoes and anything else you would like to include in the stuffing in a ball placed in the middle. Fold the dough over to make a half circle and pinch the edges. Brush with aquafaba.
Bake on 350 F until golden brown, approx 20-30 min.
- Sweet potato
- Grilled vegetables
- Firm tofu, crumbled
- Fresh herbs
- Fresh tomato slices
- Salad greens (add after cooked)
Calzone Apple dessert:
Stuff calzone with chopped fresh apples, cinnamon, maple syrup and lemon juice. Brush top with maple syrup and poke a few holes on top.
