Pizza sauce (vegan and high protein) NO COOK!

This started as an attempt to save myself from throwing out a ton of leftovers in a couple days. It turned out so good I just had to share it. Lets call this my version of wordless wednesday. No blah blah today! The sauce is gluten free, the pizza itself, only if you have a gluten free crust… maybe a cauliflower crust?

IMG_5216.JPGWhite Bean Pizza Sauce:

Serves: 3 cups of sauce                                                            Total time: 15min

Ingredients:

1.5 cups Navy beans or other leftover legumes.
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
1/2 cup canned or frozen (prepared leftovers) corn
2 Italian tomatoes chopped roughly (or more canned tomatoes)
2 tbsp leftover rice
1tsp dried oregano
1tsp dried basil
Salt if not in your rice
1/2 tsp dried onion
1 tbsp broth or water.

Method:
Put all in food processor and process to a not quite smooth texture.

That is all. Now you can make pizza!:IMG_5213.JPG

Vegetarian Cheese-less Pizza:

Serves however many you want to serve, Time depends on how fast your kids move!

Ingredients:
Favourite pizza base (Pita, Tortilla, Naan,  bought crust, homemade crust)
The white bean sauce
Favourite toppings (peppers, olives, mushrooms, yellow squash, tomatoes, roasted peppers, artichoke hearts)
Daiya “cheese” (optional)
1 or more children

Method:
Slice toppings. Put in individual containers

Place one base in front of each kid.

Place about 1/3 cup of sauce on each pizza and allow kids to spread with spoon.

Making toppings available based on ages younger kids it’s easier if you offer each thing one at a time. School age kids enjoy free access.

Bake according to the crust you put it on. On a pita or tortilla I set oven to 400 and bake about 15 min or until edges brown and if you put it, the “cheese” has melted.

Our pizzas:

Son – Tomato, yellow squash, roasted red pepper, olives, mushrooms, and daiya cheese

Daughter – Tomato, roasted pepper, olives and daiya cheese

Me – Tomato, yellow squash, roasted red pepper, olives, artichoke hearts, red onions

Can you find the more selective eater 😉

Bonus tip: Turn the sauce into a pasta sauce by sauteing up some onion and garlic add the sauce and a few more veggies to the pan (I recommend roasted or raw red pepper, brocolli and olives) and a bit of tomato paste or other tomato product if desired.

What is your favourite kind of pizza?!
