Pizza night gets a delicious makeover with this vegan Green and White Pizza. Covered in spinach pesto, vegan ricotta, broccoli, and cauliflower, this healthy treat is sure to make everyone at the dinner table happy.
Cashew Ricotta and Spinach Pesto are two of my favorite things. While thinking about what to make for dinner one night, it suddenly occurred to me that I should combine the two somehow. But how? A pasta dish? A fancy sandwich? How about pizza? Pizza was the perfect answer, as the flavors in this dish complement each other perfectly. This Green and White has become a favorite in our house, and it’s one we make often.
Vegan Green and White Pizza
Green and White Pizza will give your pizza night a delicious makeover! Covered in spinach pesto, dairy-free ricotta, broccoli, and cauliflower, this healthy pie is sure to make everyone at the dinner table happy.
- 1 12- or 15-inch prepared pizza crust
- 1 teaspoon neutral flavored vegetable oil
- 2 cups broccoli chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 2 cups cauliflower chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup cashew ricotta
- 1/2 cup spinach pesto
- ¼ cup kalamata olives chopped
- ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes sliced
Preheat oven to 400°F and place your pizza crust on an pizza pan that's either been lightly oiled or lined with parchment paper. Line a separate baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss the broccoli and cauliflower in the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on the baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes, turning the vegetables over after about 10 minutes.
Spread the pesto evenly over the crust. Use a spoon to drop the cashew ricotta on top of the pesto, flatting the dollops out a little with the back of the spoon. Scatter the broccoli, cauliflower, olives, and sun-dried tomatoes evenly over the top of the pizza.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the pizza is heated throughout.
