Vegan Chick'n & Artichoke Pesto Pizza Recipe

Sometimes we just crave a solid yet unique pizza option and when the mood strikes to get jiggy in the kitchen on pizza night, this recipe from the Keepin' it Kind food blog sure does the trick. Featuring the basil-garlic goodness of yummy pesto, your favorite cruelty-free "meaty" toppings (try subbing mushrooms for the vegan chick'n if you'd prefer), and a pinch of tang with those sun-dried tomatoes, you're going to adore this recipe.

Pizza Ingredients:
Salt and pepper, to taste.
1-2 Tbsp. vegetable broth
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 packed cup of basil leaves
1 packed cup of baby spinach
2-3 garlic cloves
1/3 cup cashews

Pesto Ingredients:
Vegan pizza dough (try THIS recipe if you wish to make your own)
6-8 strips of vegan chick'n strips (try the Beyond Meat brand)
2-5 artichoke hearts, cut into squares
1/4 cup softened sliced sun-dried tomatoes
A sprinkle of vegan parmesan, optional

Directions:
1. Combine all of the pesto ingredients except for the vegetable broth, salt, and pepper in a food processor and process until combined. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegetable broth to thin it out as you wish. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Chill until ready to use.
2. Preheat oven to 475 F and if using a pizza stone, place it in the oven while it preheats. If using a pizza pan or a baking sheet, sprinkle a little bit of flour on the pan/sheet you plan to use. Set aside.
3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is no less than 1/4 inch thick. Spread the pesto on the dough, leaving room around the edge for a crust.
4. Top dough with vegan chick'n pieces, artichoke hearts, and sun-dried tomatoes. Sprinkle on the pecan parmesan, if using. Transfer the pizza to the prepared pan or to the stone in the oven.
5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the crust has risen and is golden. Remove from the oven, slice, and serve. Enjoy!
