Halloween Pizzas: Ghosts, Pumpkins and Mummies with coconut milk Mozzarella, Cheddar, Sundried Tomato Marinara on Sesame Barley crust. vegan recipe


Vegan Pizza Post 13!
Spooky! Ok I cant do spooky, so my kids (if and when) will have to do with cute, whole grain, badly shaped pizzas(I dint leave enough space between them on the baking sheet :/, so some stuck to each other). Well atleast they are super delicious :).
There’s a Mummy, a ghost mummy, a twin ghost pizza and a somewhat grumpy pumpkin. Take your pick.

I was experimenting with another batch of cheese, so I decided to whip up these easy treats. And am quickly posting it today, since tomorrow is my Birthday and hubbs is OOF(out of office) and I am OTI(Off the interwebs)! Its a birthday month. Hubbs’, then Dad’s on Tuesday, then mine :)

Melt you cheese melt! 



Hubbs ate the ghost mummy last, coz he thought it was the cutest.

The crust has blendtec ground whole barley and coarsely ground sesame seed, which give it added protein and whole grain and that gritty look. Topped with an easy Sun-dried tomato marinara, chopped kalamata olives and cheese shapes. If you have ghost cutters, the cheese ghosts will look more fun!
We ate bowlfuls of Missir wot too. Ethiopian lentil stew from yesterdays post. 

What are your savory meal/snack plans for halloween!
Oh and do leave me silly halloween jokes in the comments!

Inverted colors… Booo

Hello ghost mummy.


You can use any of the crusts posted earlier this month like this glutenfree Oat Crust or others(wheat, white, semolina and more) from the collection here. The cheese and sauce and glutenfree. See you all after a day. Have a fun Friday!

Steps:

In  pan, add oil and heat on low-medium.
Add onions, dried herbs and bay leaf. Cook for 5-6 minutes until translucent.



Blend tomatoes, garlic and sundried tomatoes into a puree.
Add the puree to the onions, salt, herbs and cook on low-medium heat until the sauce thickens. 10-15 minutes



For the crust, In a bowl, add warm water, yeast and sugar. Mix well and let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.
Add the flours, salt, evoo, herbs and mix well for 2 minutes.
Let the dough sit and rise to double for 1.5 hours. Cover bowl with a damp towel.



Add 2 Tablespoons of flour, gather it and knead into a smooth dough for 2-3 minutes.



Divide dough and shape into shapes of choice. ghost, pumpkin squares, rectangles



Top with the marinara, cheese shapes, olives and other decorations.. I was too creeped out to make rosemary tentacled Olive spiders. but I am sure others will love those.
Bake in preheated 400 degrees F for 12-13 minutes.
Broil on Lo for half a minute to melt the cheese.
Remove from oven, let cool for a minute and serve.

I am working on improving the meltyness of the cheeses. Here is a what I did for this batch, Changes: I added a pinch of garlic powder and mustard powder to the mozzarella and used  SoDelicious coconut creamer. See the complete detailed recipe for Mozzarella here and Cheddar here. which are just perfect tastewise and almost there texture wise.
I made this batch with
with 1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk. 1/4 cup So delicious creamer, 1.5 teaspoons agar powder, 1/3 teaspoon salt, a generous pinch of black salt, 3/4 teaspoon coconut vinegar, pinch of garlic powder, pinch of mustard powder. Once agar is mixed in, add 1 teaspoon tapioca starch and 1 teaspoon potato starch
After the last step when the starches were all mixed in, I poured half into a container to set as Mozzarella and converted the other half to cheddar.With 1 tablespoon chickpea miso, 1/8 teaspoon mustard powder, 1.5 tablespoons nutritional yeast and 1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder. Mix in, cook on low for  half a minute. Pour and let sit for atleast an hour in refrigerator.

Sun-dried tomato Marinara sauce:
In a pan, add oil and heat on low-medium.
Add onions, dried herbs and bay leaf. Cook for 5-6 minutes until translucent.
Blend tomatoes, garlic and sundried tomatoes into a puree.
Add the tomato puree to the onions. Add salt, herbs and cook on low-medium heat until the sauce thickens. 10-15 minutes

Crust:
In a bowl, add warm water, yeast and sugar. Mix well and let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.
Add the flours, salt, evoo, herbs and mix well for 2 minutes.
Cover the bowl with a damp towel. Let the dough sit/rise for 1.5 hours or until doubled.
Add 2 Tablespoons of flour, gather it and knead into a smooth dough for 2-3 minutes.
Divide the dough and shape into shapes of choice. Ghosts. squares, pumpkins. 
Top with Sundried Tomato marinara, Kalamata olives and cheese strips and cheese ghosts.
I used olive slices and small olive pieces to make the eyes. 
Bake in preheated 400 degrees F oven for 12-13 minutes. 
Broil on Lo for half a minute to melt the cheese.
Remove from oven, let cool for a minute and serve.
This Mozarella does melt and get slightly stringy!

    Happy birthday, Richa!! I hope it’s a great one! (I can’t figure out what OOF stands for, but I hope it means your husband is enjoying the day with you!) These pizzas are too adorable. I think the double ghosts are my favorite, but they’re all awfully sweet.

    Here’s a silly joke for you: Why couldn’t the 13-year-old pirate go to the movie? It was rated Arrrr!

    Hi Richa! Your blog is amazing. I’ve been lurking for some time now. :D

    Vegan cheese is tricky, hunh? I got all sciencey once and made some cultured almond goat cheese that tasted like the real thing but it doesn’t melt completely. Great for salads though!
