I must have Cinco de Mayo on my mind still because I've been thinking about a Mexican pizza all week. A vegan Mexican pizza is similar to any other Mexican pizza---salsa for the sauce, cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella, and anything you would put in a taco for the toppings.
Since I liked the Daiya cheese so much in my Mac and Cheese, I thought I'd give it a try on my pizza. I was once again surprised that it actually melted--- well kind of melted. When you first take it out of the oven, it doesn't look that different. But once you cut it and bite into it, it melts and gets gooey. I used some of my Pizza Dough I made and froze a few weeks ago and bought my veggies pre-cut from the salad bar at the grocery store.
1 Pre-baked pizza crust (try mine)
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese (try Daiya)
Handful of sweet corn, off the cob
Handful of onions, sliced
Handful of olives, sliced
Handful of bell peppers, sliced
Handful of mushrooms, sliced
Pre-heat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the veggies are cooked and the cheese is slightly melted. It won't get bubbly so don't leave it in for too long, it will just burn.
