Pizza! I adore pizza. It's one of my favorite comfort foods. It is satisfying, filling, comforting and takes you back. This variety has vegan cheese in the crust, a tomato sauce topped with more vegan cheese, TVP crumbles, grilled zucchini and onion and extra vegan cheese to be safe. It's loaded! When you take a bite it tastes amazing. The flavor is fantastic. Get the recipe below. Enjoy! As my mother-in-law says "take good care of yourself, ya here" take good care during these times and each day. My love, Christa

How to cook Stuffed Crust Pizza | Vegan & GF
Pizza Peaceful Preparation
Combine the flour and salt in a bowl, mix well. Add the coconut sugar and instant yeast, mix to combine.
Add the oil and water, use a wood spoon to mix together until you can no longer mix, then knead it until it forms a smooth ball.
Place in a lightly greased bowl, cover with a damp towel. Rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to 400Â° F, opt to use a pizza stone or place your pan in there now to get it hot.
Deflate, place it on parchment paper or a silicone mat. Kneed a few times and spread it out into a 12" circle or a big circle.
Brush the dough with a little oil and prick holes over the entire base with a fork.
Stuffed Crust Pizza
Leave a 2-3" border around the pizza dough and add the vegan cheese in a circle around the crust, take the excess dough from the border and fold it over the cheese ensuring to fully enclose the cheese. Use a little water at the end to smooth things out if needed.
Add the pizza sauce to the base of the pizza.
Add some of the vegan cheese, the TVP mixture, the grilled zucchini and onion. Extra cheese.
I took the leftover marinade from the TVP and brushed it on the crust, along with a little extra olive oil to brown. Transfer to the baking sheet or pizza stone.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling hot.
