Vegan Spinach Artichoke Pizza

Vegan Spinach Artichoke Pizza

A lot of people like to ask, “If you’re vegan, what DO you eat? But, since becoming plant-based I have never felt like I “couldn’t” eat something. I always took it as a challenge to see if a recipe could be adjusted and made vegan without comprising on flavor. This Vegan Spinach Artichoke Pizza was one of those challenges.

There is a pizza place in New York that is famous for a spinach artichoke pizza.  People love their pizza.  We would have slices from this parlor every once and awhile when we were vegetarian but stopped after cutting out dairy. This Vegan Spinach Artichoke Pizza is our recreation of this very popular NYC slice, but completely plant-based.

The flavor of this pizza is AMAZING! The white beans and artichokes combine to give this slice a very creamy texture, while the spinach brings out a nice earthiness. And then, last but not least, it has LOTS of roasted garlic. We like to save some of the artichokes to serve on top because they just look beautiful combined with the fresh basil.  This is one gorgeous pizza!

Creamy, earthy and garlicky…. this Vegan Spinach Artichoke Pizza is simply irresistible- AND it tastes just like the slice I remember. Challenge met.  Please give this pizza a try.  It’s so worth it.
