Vegan Pesto Pizza

Nobody would guess that this easy pesto sauce uses miso paste instead of oil. You may want to double the recipe and save some to toss with pasta on another night.

Makes one pizza

What You Need:

  • 1 frozen prepared pizza crust
  • 1 large bunch basil, washed and destemmed
  • 1 heaping tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts, plus 2 tablespoons for garnish
  • 5 or more tablespoons water


What You Do:

  1. Preheat the oven according to the directions on the frozen pizza crust.
  2. To prepare the topping, combine basil, miso, garlic, pine nuts and water in a food processor. Add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time as needed until the pesto is smooth enough to spread on the crust.
  3. Spread the pesto onto the frozen crust and sprinkle on the remaining 2 tablespoons of pine nuts. Bake according to package directions.
