Plant-Based Pizza: 50+ Tasty Plant-Based Pizza Recipes

Chipotle Mushroom and Guacamole Pizza

293

I think about food all the time. Different flavor combinations and ingredient pairings are running through my mind. When it comes to pizza, my favorite food of all time, my brain goes into overdrive. I make pizza for my family every Saturday and I rarely make the same pizza twice because I am always curious about new topping ideas. I will go to a restaurant and while eating my meal I will think about how I can make the dish into a pizza. It is an obsession! 

One of the most recent examples of this obsession is my Chipotle Mushroom and Guacamole pizza. When this first ran through my mind I was like, “guacamole on pizza…?” “What will happen to the color and texture of the avocado during the baking process?” The best way to answer all these questions was to write a preliminary recipe and give it a try. After my experimentation, I concluded that a combination of guacamole in place of the sauce and some uncooked as a topping was the way to go.

This recipe is a taco pizza fusion that delivers chipotle smokiness and ripe avocado to cure my Saturday night pizza addiction. The chipotle mushrooms are marinated and then baked with red onion to ground this recipe with plant-based meatiness so that all you need is your favorite plant-based cheese (I used Daiya Mozzarella Shreds) and my flavor-packed guacamole recipe for pizza topping perfection. You can try out my Neapolitan pizza crust recipe or use a store-bought crust to save time.
