A lot of people may be skeptical about using a vegan cheese. Honestly, it can take a little bit of getting used to. But give this a chance. We think you’ll be as surprised as us at how good this tastes.

Vegan Pizza Recipe

Ingredients:

4 whole-wheat Greek pitas (6 to 8 inches)

8-ounce bag Daiya Cheese

1/2 cup of your favorite veggies (mushrooms, peppers, olives, etc.)

Fresh basil for topping

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400F. Spread pizza sauce on pita, sprinkle with cheese and toppings, and cook for five to 10 minutes or until crust crispy and cheese is melted.
