Vegan Bacon & Brussels Pizza – Untraditional Thanksgiving Meal
I know I owe you a blog about my yoga teacher training with Trimurti. But first I wanted to share this awesome pizza my friend Nanette and I made on the fly! You can watch the video here.
Since I was making this up as I went the ingredients are totally estimates. I think you’ll find if I’m close to correct it will be very delicious! You know nutritional yeast is magical stuff right? It makes everything taste better.
You’ll need a store-bought pizza crust or make your own about 10-12 inches in diameter. Feel free to adjust the spices as you like.
Vegan Bacon & Brussels Pizza
Makes 2-3 servings
2 cups Brussel sprouts
1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
Dash olive oil
Sprinkle red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon each thyme and nutritional yeast
Dash each red pepper flakes, black pepper, and sea salt
Upton’s bacon, half the package, cut in pieces
Toss everything but the bacon and pizza crust together in a small casserole dish until well coated. Place in a preheated oven (400F) and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with bacon. Cook another 10 minutes. While this is happening make your tofu cheese.
One block extra firm tofu, crumbled
1/5 cup nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons white or yellow miso
1 tablespoon each tamari and red wine vinegar
Mix everything together until well combined. Roll out your pizza dough and pre-cook for 5-8 minutes as needed. Layer tofu cheese across the entire pizza dough. Layer the Brussels mix on top of that. Bake for another 10-12 minutes depending on how crispy you like your pizza crust. Remove from oven and cut into 8 pieces. Enjoy!
