Gluten Free Vegan Pizza

An issue I hear a lot from people who are interested in vegetarian and vegan food, is that they don't know what to make. They think it's time consuming, involves complicated ingredients, or is just plain difficult. While some of it can be, a large majority of it is simple, and can be even easier to make with a few ready to use products. While processed food is generally something I avoid, by reading labels you can figure out which products are similar to something you might make at home. I usually try to avoid additives, preservatives, food dyes and colourings, and artificial sweeteners. Whole Foods or Natural Health stores can make it easier to find these products, and they're becoming more readily available in conventional food stores as well.

This pizza only cost me about $13 to make, and it makes 2 12in pizzas! You don't need to use gluten free dough, and ready to use pizza dough is available in most grocery stores. Using a pita also works if you want to make individual pizzas. My oven is currently broken, so I made this in a toaster oven which worked surprisingly well! I topped it with mushrooms and broccoli, as well as Pepperjack Daiya cheese(my favorite vegan cheese), and some dried basil.

Roll into 2 rounds, and sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese. Cover with tomato sauce, then add veggies on top. Sprinkle on more cheese, and bake at 450 for 20-25 minutes.
