Seena's Quick, Meatless, Dairy-Free Pizza

So, first you go to a bakery and ask at the counter for some raw whole wheat pizza dough. Take it home and let it warm to room temperature before using. Then stretch it out onto a baking sheet and roll it so it is flat and even.

Then add your sauce of choice - classic tomato, garlic aioli, pesto, black bean, curry or whatever.

Then select your favourite toppings. Here is where you can get creative. Consider mushrooms, eggplant, sliced onions, green peppers or other vegetables, broccoli florets, hot peppers, olives, veggie pepperoni or roasted garlic. We went minimal on this particular night, but you don't have to.

First, add a layer of Daiya or your favourite non-dairy cheese.  The Daiya is our favourite because it melts really well, but features a much lower saturated fat content as well as carbon footprint.

Layer your toppings on top of the cheese, with an emphasis on green olives, the ultimate pizza topping.

Place on the middle rack of the oven and cook at 400 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, making sure not to let the cheese burn. Slice with classic pizza roller and serve with a tossed salad. Bon appetit!
