Berry Basil Vegan Pizza

This tastes as good as it looks! Bananas, strawberries, fruit, tomatoes, broccoli and other goodies, this is a pretty superb, filling and fun combo that hits all the right notes with the pistachios and pesto for a bit of saltiness to counter the strawberries.

Ingredients (serves 2 – 4):

  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced thinly
  • 200g button mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 2 cups basil, washed and patted dry
  • 3 TBSP tahini oil
  • 3 TBSP lemon juice
  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup whole pistachios, measured then crushed finely
  • 1/4 cup storebought or homemade sundried tomato pesto
  • 2 tomato base cheese-free frozen pizza bases (or homemade pizza bases)
  • 2 TBSP nutritional yeast
