Food holidays are the best, and one of the most popular of course is National Pizza Day. Vegan pizza is especially delicious and creative, with various types of crusts, sauces, and toppings to choose from. Also, there are many ways to make it from scratch!
To celebrate this wonderful day, One Green Planet put together 10 of their most creative, homemade pizza recipes:
1. Lentil Crust Pizza
2. Falafel Crust Pizza
3. Beet ‘Pepperoni’ Pizza
Who ever knew that beets could make the perfect substitute for pepperoni? When you think about it, they’re the perfect shape and size! Beets are marinated in a smoky, spicy sauce and then fried until crispy. They go perfectly with the crust and tomato sauce in Alicja Rokicka‘s Beet ‘Pepperoni’ Pizza recipe, but feel free to use your favorites — after all, pizza is a personal affair.
