1 pizza crust (I use Alvarado St. sprouted grain)
1 onion (preferably a sweet onion, if not add 1-2 tablespoons sugar)
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons Earth Balance or olive oil
1/2 jar herbed marinara sauce
1 zucchini halved and sliced
1/2 roll Gimme Lean soy sausage
1 can artichoke hearts packed in water
1/2 block Vegan Rella
fresh or dried Italian herbs (basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme)
salt and pepper to taste
kalamata olives (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 and place pizza crust on a round pizza stone. Put plain crust in the oven for 10 minutes while you are preparing the topping.
Caramelize the onions by sautéing them and the chopped garlic in 1 tablespoon of Earth Balance or olive oil over medium heat for 20 minutes or until they become limp. Remove from heat and puree with the pasta sauce in a food processor.
Spread evenly over half-baked crust and top with chopped artichokes.
Begin sautéing the zucchini and soy sausage in another tablespoon of Earth Balance or olive oil over medium heat. Use a spatula to separate the sausage into separate chunks.
Grate Vegan Rella over the artichokes and top with the zucchini/sausage mixture. Sprinkle with Italian herbs and salt and pepper.
Garnish with kalamata olives for a Greek taste (I like it without them better). Enjoy!
