Vegan Pizza With Polenta Base

Vegan, gluten free pizza is so easy to make... Polenta is a quick alternative to wheat for pizza dough, but it is pretty bland - so we always try adding extras to cheer it up... For a large pizza - we measure out 1 litre of boiling water, using a little to fry garlic & onions in a large saucepan, along with basil, oregano & smoked paprika. We also add sea salt & lots of crushed black pepper (otherwise it's just too bland for us). Once the onions & garlic are softened, we add the rest of the water & bring to the boil. Take the pan off the heat & stir in the polenta (250g to 1 litre of water). A hand blender is good to make sure it's mixed in properly & we use greaseproof paper so it doesn't stick on the tray. Once it's spread evenly on the tray, stick it in a hot oven for about 15 minutes - until it's just starting to brown. Leave to cool. Choose your veggies... We started with a layer of passata, then scrambled tofu

5 Minutes From Our Door

Is the view we never tire of... Really enjoying our 10 minutes or more of walking, it's good to just drop everything & escape! On our return - we made pizzas. For the dough, we use Shipton's Mill Flour, Dove's Farm Yeast, Cornish Sea Salt, Olive Oil & water - with a sprinkle of oregano & sesame seeds. The topping Suma Tomato Puree, mixed with Suma Vegan Pesto & more Olive Oil.  I can post the recipe if anyone is interested. We then add what whatever veg we fancy - last night was garlic, onions, mushrooms... And sliced green olives.  Hugo also had a sprinkle of organic cheddar on his! Enjoyed lots of discussion last night about the way we treat older people in this country, triggered by Karin's blog at:  Green and Generous  - check it out & join the conversation. And before I forget - we saw this in St Austell on Tuesday & it reminded me of  Just Gai's Blog Off to Eden today, last day of locals for £5 entry - got to get our annual pass!!
