No Meat Pizza
My wife and I have a tradition of pizza on Fridays with our son. For financial reasons we have started doing homemade pizza. We then decided that we would do without meat one day a week and being that we are approaching Lent we decided to forgo meat on Fridays.
So what interesting no meat pizza combinations can you come up with?
Chopped broccoli, tomato, artichoke hearts, mushrooms.
Spinach, sun-dried tomato, feta, little oregano.
I love Trader Joe's meatless meatballs, which come frozen. I don't think they'd hold together well enough to slice for pizza topping, but they could be diced or crumbled. They have a true meaty texture and flavor.
Mushrooms, of course, make a heartier pizza. I'd also recommend dry beans that have been soaked and cooked in vegetable broth.
Caramelized onions for either a tomato or non-tomato based pizza.
For a non-tomato pizza, thinly-sliced winter squash with spinach and a nutty cheese.
Coleslaw, drained. I kid you not. Preferably on a sausage and onion pizza, but not necessarily. Seaweed salad, with fontina cheese and scallions/shallots.
We made a delicious meatless pizza last week - tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella base, topped with shredded brussels sprouts (about a 1/2 c per serving), chopped pecans, smoked hot paprika, olive oil, salt and pepper. Sounds a little weird, but it was a great combination!
