Diet. A touchy word and topic for many of us. What’s healthy, what’s not? What should we eat? What kind of diet works? Is it important?
After years of trying different theories – everything from chicken all day errday, to hard core vegan – I came to the conclusion that there’s no such thing as one diet that fits everyone. Some people thrive on potatoes all day, others might be energised and healthy consuming a good mix of everything this planet has to offer. We are all different, so what feels good to me might not do so for you – and the other way around.
I was tempted to tell a little white lie and say that this pizza is something I would have as a treat – as it’s based on store bought pizza dough and a vegan version of Crème fraîche (haha I totally copy pasted that word), something most people would be like “alarm alarm, processed foods” about. But I’m not going to go down that road. I’m gonna be real and true and tell you I’ll have this every single day, without any guilt, if I crave so.
Right now I feel my best when I eat all plant based. And it has been like that for about 3 years. Gluten has never been a problem for me. Eating bread actually makes me feel better than when I don’t do it. And you know what’s truly healthy for me? Living my life, and not restrict anything.
As long as I stay away from meat and dairy I feel energised, mentally clear, calm and happy. And this pizza is no exception to the feel good vibes. Not to mention how incredibly tasty it is!
Now do whatever you want with it. Have it as a treat, eat it for dinner on a regular Monday, or serve it beside a huge salat. Whatever you do – don’t miss out.
hahaha and what is this photo? This is me shooting photos in 0% natural lighting. Kids – this is how it shouldn’t be done. Creds for amazing composition and fresh looking herbs tho.
I bought this pizza dough from the Norwegian brand Peppes Pizza. It is extra thin and yum. You can of course make the dough yourself which would be healthier and maybe more yum – but I’m lazy and don’t really notice any difference so hey!
I preheat the oven to about 175 degrees celcius, and bake the crust alone for a few minutes. Then I brush on a little bit of olive oil and garlic, a dash or six of Oatly iMat Fraiche on there. Decorate with sliced tomatoes, and in the oven it goes again.
When it’s done I drown it in fresh basil leaves, wine vinegar, salt, pepper and chili flakes. Let it calm down and chill for a few minutes and SERVE!
I was supposed to make this pizza, but i tobviously didn’t end up like hers. Let’s just give her credit for inspiring this recipe!
