Vegan MoFo #5 Tortilla Pizza

                           Easy Dishes Made From Refrigerator and Pantry Staples.

 A dish that is always easy to put together with things that I have on hand is a Tortilla Pizza.

For this one instead of a red sauce I used a cashew spinach pesto (recipe below). For toppings I used the leftover bell pepper slices from my vegan sushi, onions, garlic, and Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds.

I started by sauteing the onions, garlic and bell peppers in a little oil. Seasoning them with a little salt and pepper. While they are one the stove getting all tasty I make the pesto. Once that's done I take a whole grain tortilla and place it on a baking sheet, top it with the pesto, bell pepper and onion mixture and top it off with the Daiya. 
I used this flavor because it's what I had in the fridge.

Then you stick the pizza a 400 degree oven for about 15 min. Or until the tortilla is crispy and the Daiya is melted.

Cashew Spinach Pesto

3/4 raw cashews (soaked overnight)
1 cup spinach
2 cloves garlic
1/2 TBSP nutritional yeast
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil

Put all ingredients in a food processor (I used a mini one) and blend until well combined. Adjust seasoning to taste.
