Vegan Veggie Calzone

Vegan Veggie Calzone

Vegan Calzone

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb pizza dough (I used trader joe’s, or you can make your own Vegan Pizza Dough (That account rocks!)
  • 1 packet of Daiya Mozzarella Cheese
  • Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • Banana Peppers
  • Spinach
  • Onions
  • Garlic

Saute the spinach, onions and garlic until the onions are almost soft.

In a bread pan, flat out half of the pizza dough. Lay out all of the veggies and sprinkle the cheese on top. Use the rest of the dough to cover the filling and pinch the edges together.

Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minute, or until the top of the calzone is browning.

Top with oregano and serve with any marinara sauce. I suggest cut it into single slices, if sharing. If not, dig in!

Arrive to your next dinner party with one of these and you’re sure to be the most liked one at the party! My family enjoyed this with the delicious homemade cranberry sauce I saved for the side. One tip: be sure to not over cook! The worst thing is having a dry tart…you don’t want that.

On these unexpected snow days, all I want is some warm soup! I usually forget to buy vegetable broth, so here is an easy way to make our own:
1 Tbsp. Garlic powder (or 2 Tbsp. of fresh garlic)
1 Tbsp. Tumeric
1 Tbsp. Kolonji Seeds
1 Tbsp. Thyme
1 Tbsp. Oregano
1/2 cup of celery leaves
1 onion (diced)
2-3 cups of water

This soup in the picture is a vegetable bean soup with carrots, celery, green beans, chick peas, black beans & mashed up kidney beans for a thicker sauce.
