Vegan Kale and Alfredo Pizza


That delicious, decadent, and cheese covered pizza is vegan, you guys.  I was pretty proud of myself, after just kind of winging it for a pizza party we threw for the Super Bowl.  It was SO good.


We made 5 pizzas in total, for 7 people, and there were two star vegan ones.  I made my regular Curry Sweet Potato and Eggplant Pizza, which I've made several times.  For the other one, I wanted to try something different.


So, I started thinking about what kind of pizza I used to like before going vegan, and an alfredo pizza came to mind.  I had some leftover frozen kale from another dish, so I knew I was halfway there.  I grabbed some Kroger vegan chicken shreds in the frozen section (which I am OBSESSED with), made up some cashew cream, mixed in the kale, threw on some Daiya and jalapenos, and dinner was served.


Of course, we used store bought pizza crusts, because we're lazy and afraid of yeast.  One day I will master how to truly make a good pizza crust.  For now, these work well.

What's your favorite type of vegan pizza?  Do you ever use vegan chicken shreds?

  1. That pizza looks amazing! I absolutely love kale on pizza. I see a lot of very non vegan versions of that pizza on menus. Great idea with the Alfredo!
    I love the Trader Joe's chicken-less strips. They have saved the day many a time for me. And I find vegan chicken type things are an easier sell to non vegans if you're ever in mixed company.

    1. They're totally great in mixed company, especially when you get ones with good texture

  2. Love those Kroger chick'n shreds! And alfredo pizza was always my fave too. I should try this!

    If you ever do decide to tackle homemade crust, the recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance is my fave. It's really simple, but it does require a few hours for rising. The good thing is, it makes two crusts, so you can freeze one for later!
