Hold the Cheese, Please: Arugula and Asparagus Pesto Pizza
Posted Jun 13 2013 4:11pm
Remember the vegan pesto I shared two weeks ago? Today, in my New Veganism column at Food52, I’m celebrating spring flavors by sharing a perfect vegan pizza : arugula and aparagus pesto pizza.
Vegan pizza might sound like a contradiction in terms, since so many of us associate pizza with cheese. But a variety of sauces and toppings can make a pizza that’s every bit as delicious as more traditional pie. In this recipe, for example, grassy asparagus meets spicy arugula and the umami and saltiness of pesto.
