Stove Top Pineapple Broccoli Mini Pizzas

Is pizza vegan? Well, not usually, but this one is! Homemade stovetop pizza crust, homemade tomato sauce with chickpeas, black olives, baby spinach, garlic, ginger and a slightly spicy thai peanut sauce with broccoli florets. No vegan cheese in this pizza, so it’s quite light and won’t leave you ready to pass out in bed after wards.

I made this totally on the fly a couple of nights ago… I haven’t made a pizza in probably a year. I’m glad I did… it was beautiful to prepare and very fun to assemble. Eating it wasn’t so bad either. 😉


Pizza Crust (makes 3 small-medium pizza crusts)

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 3-5 tbs vital wheat gluten
  • handful of pepitas and/or pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 3-4 tbs nutritional yeast
  • pinch of sea salt
  • sprinkle of kelp granules
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds or ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • extra virgin olive oil (about 1 1/2 tbs)

Tomato Sauce

  • 3 tomatoes, chopped into small pieces
  • tomato paste – about 3/4 of a can
  • 5-6 pieces of garlic, minced
  • 1″ of ginger, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup cooked chickpeas, roughly chopped into smaller pieces
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 6 or 7 large black olives, sliced
  • red hot pepper flakes, to taste

I was going to add in sliced mushrooms, but found out they had gone bad on me, so you can use those too if you’d like.

Broccoli with Thai Peanut Sauce

  • 1 small broccoli head, chopped into fine pieces
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3-5 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1-2 tsp soy sauce/tamari
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbs natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbs honey / vegan sugar

Final Toppings

  • a few pieces of pineapple, chopped into small pieces (i used canned, in real pineapple juice, but fresh is better! :))
  • a bit more baby spinach
  • nutritional yeast

Directions for making the pizza crust

Equipment you’ll need

  • Large bowl
  • Wooden spoon (for mixing)
  • Rolling Pin
  • Cutting board
  1. Get out a large bowl and add the flour, cornmeal, the seeds, cumin, nutritional yeast, garlic & onion powder, salt and kelp granules.
  2. Add in the 1 1/2 cups of warm water and combine ingredients well to form a dough.
  3. Knead the dough for a few minutes. The dough should be slightly moist, so don’t worry about adding more flour unless it is very sticky/wet.
  4. Add a small amount of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil onto the dough, covering the whole surface.
  5. Leave the dough in the bowl and cover with a damp cloth and leave it for about 10 minutes.
  6. After the 10 minutes, divide the dough into 3 pieces,
  7. Sprinkle a bit of flour onto a cutting board and start rolling a piece of dough into a flat, thin circle.
  8. Heat a dry nonstick skillet on medium heat and cook the first flattened dough for around 3 minutes on either side. Repeat for the other two.

Directions for Tomato sauce

  1. Heat a bit of oil to medium-low heat on a non-stick skillet. Add the minced garlic and ginger and saute for a minute or so. Add in the chickpeas, spinach, olives red pepper flakes, tomatoes and tomato paste and use a spatula to stir occasionally.
  2. Allow to simmer for 10-20 minutes and then transfer into a bowl.

Directions for Broccoli & Thai Peanut Sauce

  1. Start by boiling or steaming the broccoli florets. Transfer to a pot and add the water, nutritional yeast, soy sauce, garlic powder, cayenne, peanut butter and sweetener. Stir and cook on medium-low heat for a few minutes. Transfer to bowl.

Almost done and ready for pizza!

Final Steps

  1. Spoon out some of the tomato sauce and spread onto the pizza crusts.
  2. Add some baby spinach on top, then top with the broccoli and some of the peanut sauce.
  3. Add some chopped pineapple chunks and finally sprinkle with nutritional yeast.

Now you are ready o cut into slices and chow down 🙂
