Vegan Pizza Recipe | Healthy Lunch Ideas

Ever since I started eating healthier foods, I’ve always looked for ways to make quick and easy meals that still taste delicious without sacrificing flavour. I feel like pizza is a staple for most families which is why I think its important to find healthy options that you can replace your typical pizza night with. The best part about these mini vegan pizzas is the fact that everyone can make their own creations using whatever toppings you have on hand. No need to fight over whether you’re ordering Hawaiian or margarita again 🙂

 

 

A lot of the time I come up with my recipes while in a rush for time and in need of a quick bite thats healthy and still yummy. I started making these mini vegan pizzas while living and working in Perth, Australia. I would whip these pizzas in no time as a quick lunch before heading to work. Most of the time the fridge was packed with tons of left over veggies from last nights dinner or just things I needed to use up before they went bad.

These are all the ingredients I used in this version of my mini vegan pizzas but you can play around with tons of other toppings and flavours. I use to love adding jalapeños , roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts and cherry tomatoes as well (not necessarily all together).

I used spelt tortilla wraps in this recipe but ezekiel, brown rice or non-gmo corn ones would work great too and would make this recipe gluten free.

  1. Hi There Nikole!
    Loved this idea of using tortillas as pizza base!!! Discovered your chanel a couple of days ago and i’m loving your suggestions! I was surprised to hear you are portuguese!!! Me too ! I live in Portugal and i’m thinking about starting a chanel in portuguese but i’m still discovering everything about vegan or vegetarian style of cooking! Big hug, Ana

  2. That vegan pizza looks and sounds delicious!!
    If I was to create a pizza, I’d select just 4 or 5 toppings – I like a clean and simple taste.
    So, my pizza would be:
    • Base – thin or medium wholewheat crust
    • Basic Tomato paste
    • Cheese – cheddar
    • Topping 1 – pine nuts
    • Topping 2 – spinach
    • Topping 3 – ham or chicken
    • Topping 4 – mushrooms
    • Topping 5 – red onions
    Then maybe some black pepper sprinkled on top.
    Of course, your vegan still looks more tasty and nutritious!!
