Alfalfa Sprouts on Vegan Pizza

I would call this month a successful sprouting month. I have successfully used my sprouts in creative ways. Some of which my family did not even realize, and others in a way that I really need to work on (according to the food critics at my house).

Alfalfa Sprouts

I have begun to educate myself and my family on the nutrition of sprouts and they are not afraid when they see them setting out on the counter. When we ate at Nana’s house for lunch one day my children were quick to point out her sprouts set aside for topping on our bean burgers. Not sure they tried them, but they did notice them! That’s a start. They were excellent on the burgers too! Wish I had a picture of them sticking out of the bun. “Click”

My latest Sprout recipe is so simple, I nearly forgot to add the sprouts. It was vegan pizza night and we had two pizzas going. One with all the veggies of a traditional pizza: sauteed mushrooms, bells, onions etc… the second with sauteed spinach, mushrooms and onions topped with tomatoes, basil and roasted red bells.

One pizza I sprinkled the sprouts on top. Very pretty, but the sprouts were quite cooked so I am not sure how much nutrition was left in them. I think next time I’ll add them just before taking it out of the oven.

The other I added the sprouts to the last bit of the sauce and topped the pizza with it. I would have added it to all the sauce…but, like I said, I forgot until I was spreading the sauce onto the crusts.

Home-made Pizza Sauce

    • 1 can tomato sauce
    • 2-3 tablespoons Italian Seasoning (or adjust to taste)
    • sprouts

    Mix the sauce and seasonings and set aside to let the seasonings mingle and get to know one another. Then add the sprouts before spreading on the crust. This can be done while you prep the veggies for the pizzas.

    I like topping my pizzas with extra sauce to keep the veggies on. I do this instead of using cheese. Since I have been topping my pizzas with sauce for so long, there is no asking for cheese. We have none and it’s not expected anymore. Easy as that. It’s not always better with cheese.

    My pizza toppings change depending on my mood and what’s available in the fridge. But, here is a list of our favorite toppings.

      • sauteed mushrooms
      • onions
      • bell peppers
      • roasted red peppers
      • olives
      • dill pickles (just try them!)
      • tomatoes
      • spinach
      • Brussels Sprouts (or any other roasted vegetable in your fridge)
      • asparagus
      • extra home-made sauce for topping

      For a great simple lunch try spreading hummus on a pita or small pizza round and top with sprouts and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and bake. This is crispy, crunchy goodness!!! And so easy your children can make it using a toaster oven.

      Alfalfa Sprouts on Vegan Pizza - FAQs

      Sprouts are a known source of foodborne illness . Reduce your risk of getting sick from sprouts. Children, older adults, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems should avoid eating raw sprouts of any kind (including alfalfa, clover, radish, and mung bean sprouts).

      The BEST vegan pizza made with a garlic-herb crust, simple tomato sauce, TONS of sauteed veggies, and vegan parmesan cheese. Thin crust, tons of flavor, and ridiculously satisfying.

      If you’re vegan or you just don’t eat dairy, you can use nutritional yeast as a healthy cheese substitute. Just add it to pizza, cheesy sauces, and casseroles that call for cheese to give them a gooey, cheesy flavor.

      Not so much anymore. They’ve even disappeared from some major grocery store chains after numerous outbreaks traced to sprouts in recent years. The problem is in the way sprouts grow: Seeds need warm, moist growing conditions to sprout — exactly the conditions that illness-causing bacteria, such as Salmonella and E.

      Alfalfa may help combat systemic inflammation.

      So we all need anti-inflammatory foods, such as alfalfa sprouts (and other plant foods), that contain powerful antioxidants and nutrients that may help fight inflammation.

      Vegan Protein Pizza Toppings and Variations

      This recipe uses BBQ chickpeas and smoked tofu for some tasty protein. If you’re looking for other ways to add protein to vegan pizza, why not try: Tempeh. Tofu (plain or marinated/ cooked tofu)

      Unlike pasta and other Italian-born baked goods, traditional pizza dough recipes do not call for the inclusion of eggs, butter, or dairy. So, this is an easy one – the dough of a pizza is almost always automatically vegan!

      Just loads of fruit veggies and plant-based dietary items. Needless to say, vegan pizza is a healthier choice. Be it dairy-free mozzarella cheese or the base made out of flour,nutritional yeast and cashew nut puree resulting in less saturated fats. We make sure taste is delivered to you with health.
