Brown Rice Pizza
We've been thinking about trying this rather unconventional pizza recipe from Vive le Vegan! for quite a while and we finally got to it tonight. The main break from convention is in the crust, which is made by mixing cooked brown rice with herbs and olive oil and pressing it into a pan. Then some pizza sauce goes on top along with some roasted veggies - we did zucchini, green bell pepper and shiitake mushrooms. We also put some vegan cheese on top - the Follow Your Heart mozzarella. We've tried the FYH cheddar flavor before and it was so-so, but the mozzarella was pretty good on the pizza. And the brown rice crust was quite good too, and very good for you. It didn't turn out to be something you could pick up with your hands like a standard pizza but it tasted good.
