Vegan Pizza

Sorry, when I said red, I meant anything in the reddish family. This includes pink and orangish.

Incase you didn't hear, I am sort of vegan. We do a pizza night and last night was ours. For the non-vegans (everyone but me) I made plain cheese. I guess I was hopefully that my husband would eat mine. Silly me. For the vegans (just me) I made a caramelized onion/artichoke/roastedredpepper/mushroom pizza. I got this from my vegan guru Shannnon. For starters, I caramelized the onions. Now, I am a foodie, but I admit, cannot caramlize an onion to save my life. If I need them, I do them in the crockpot with butter. This time, I decided my problem was Not Enough Fat. I made sure I used plenty of oil. Well, by doing this, I think I fried the onions instead of caramelizing them. Don't get me wrong, they were delicious, but not quite what I was going for. Oh well. I heated up the rest of the ingredients, took out some (fried) onions for the top, then blended the rest for the sauce. Spread the sauce on top of a homemade crust, top with onions, and hello! Vegan Pizza. I served with pineapple whip, which will be features on my mommy blog.

Oh, and I made something last week I really thought was going to be red. Silly me, it was greenish-yellow Aloo Globi from Lindsey...but it was delicious!

Hey Kerri! I apologize - have to admit that I pulled one of my mother-in-law's tricks and left out a secret ingredient to the pizza. Unlike my MIL, it was not on purpose!! Anyway, add some balsamic vinegar when you puree up the veggies and drizzle some on the pizza before putting in the oven - it gives it some kick!!
