Before I went vegan, Taco Bell’s mexican pizza was a staple of my diet. Lucky for me, there are a million DIY recipes for such pizza on the Web. But I wanted something a little bit different, so instead of using flour tortillas, I decided to use a polenta pie crust and bake it like a pie. The results of my experiment were delicious! I hope you enjoy it too.
This pizza would be good served with a green salad and an ice cold Mexican beer.
For “burger” crumbles, you can either make your own or buy tofu crumbles at the grocery. I prefer making my own, it’s much cheaper and much more nutritious, with no mystery ingredients that you cannot pronounce! I use this recipe from CookingWithPlants.com.
For the cheese, again you can buy vegan cheese at the grocery store, but making your own is more nutritious and cheaper. I use Vegan Richa’s Almond Milk Pepper Jack.
You can buy ready-made taco seasoning and taco sauce everywhere. Just make sure it’s vegan. If you’re ambitious, you could do a Google search for DIY versions and make your own.
