Jason Ellis wants more Vegan Pizza!

So...I'm off to deliver it. For those of you who came here after hearing me on the show, below is the recipe for the pizza. For those of you who already follow me, sorry, this is a repeat!


Jason Ellis' Pizza

For the Crust:
1/4 ounce (1 packet) active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup vital wheat gluten flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
additional olive oil

Mix together yeast, sugar and warm water. Let stand ten minutes.
In a mixing bowl, mix together flours and salt. Add in yeast mixture, water and olive oil. Adding more all purpose flour if too wet, more water if too dry, a little bit at a time. Your goal is a soft elastic dough ball that is easy to handle and not sticky.
Knead for about 10 minutes.
Divide into two, form into a ball. Brush with a light coat of olive oil, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for one hour.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Punch down the dough, knead an additional 2-3 minutes and form into a pizza crust.
Bake with your favorite toppings for about 10 minutes, or until crust is a nice golden brown.

Yield: 2, 10 inch crusts

For the Pepperoni:
1 cup (96 g) dry TVP granules
1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon (6 g) ground black pepper, depending on your heat preference
1 tablespoon (7 g) paprika
1 tablespoon (8 g) garlic powder
1 teaspoon anise seed
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper or dried chipotle powder
1 cup (235 ml) water
2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil
2 tablespoons (30 ml) liquid smoke

In a microwave safe bowl, mix together TVP with all of the herbs and spices.Stir in water, oil and liquid smoke.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave on high for about 6 minutes.
Carefully remove from microwave, and allow to cool enough to handle.
Alternately, mix spices together with TVP.
Bring water to a boil, add in oil and smoke, stir into TVP and spice mixture, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
Fluff with a fork and use to top your pizza, or stuff a calzone!

I use Tomato Basil pasta sauce for the sauce and Daiya Shredded Vegan Cheese for the cheese.

Jade said...

The pepperoni was AWESOME! I was eating it with a spoon while I made the pizza. The only thing is, I made way too much. Is there anything else I can do with it? I don't want it to go to waste.

Hi! I'm not sure why I've never been to your blog! I've been hearing about you on Celine's for ages...and I just bought y'all's book a few weeks ago. It's amazing!

I can't believe you were on the Jason Ellis show. And I missed it. I have Sirius in my car and I love listening to him.

Jade...It makes a nice and spicy addition to marinara on pasta!

Bianca...I'll be back again, I will be teaching Rawdog how to cook soon, after they get back from Vegas for Ellismania.

Thanks All!
