GF Vegan Pizza

First off I need to start by saying just how much I love my mom's camera! I took this amazing shot using my mom's fancy Nikon, thanks mom! Also, I love my step-dad's oven. Yes, it's his oven - a shiny new convection oven. I made this spinach and mushroom pizza on Christmas day for lunch. I'm the only vegan in the family, but I wasn't the only one eating this pizza! I used a mix for the crust. It's not the best crust in the world, but it is gluten free and it isn't bad.

You will need:

Namaste Pizza Crust Mix (gluten free)
pizza sauce, you decide how much
1 C fresh spinach, washed
1/2 C sliced mushrooms
5 oz Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet mozarella style "cheese", shredded
olive oil
pizza pan or stone


Preheat oven according to package directions and prepare crust according to directions. The rest is pretty straight forward: Spread the pizza sauce on the crust and follow with toppings. I like to put the cheese on last so it melts nicely. Be sure to brush the exposed crust with olive oil to prevent it from drying out! Bake the pizza for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the crust has started to brown. I like to put the pizza under the broiler for a minute or two after baking to brown the cheese a little. Let the pizza cool for about 5 minutes then slice and enjoy!
