Meatless Monday: Red Curry Pizza

If you love a red curry and you love pizza – you are gonna love this mash up. Basically I take all the goodness of a red curry and make it into a pizza.  This is going to take you a hot minute to make because fresh dough – but it is so worth it.

Also, if you happen to have left overs – it tastes great cold. It is loaded with veggies and light -ish on the fats and it makes pizza sort of taste healthier than it should and I love that about this.

It will probably take 40 mins to throw together with all the chopping and prepping. It makes one medium sized pizza. 

I promise you  – it’s worth it.  

Lets make pizza – things you will need:

The no-yeast Pizza Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups of flour (white, whole wheat or combo of both)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 flax egg (I tablespoon of ground flax + 2.5 tablespoons of water)
  • ¼ cup light flavoured oil (do not use coconut oil)
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tsp dried ginger 
  • ½ tsp garlic powder

Red Curry Pizza Sauce:

  • 1 cup full fat canned coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste
  •  I tablespoon brown sugar

Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup frozen corn & jalapeno mix
  • 1 medium carrot grated
  • 1/2 red pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/2 yellow peppers, cut into strips
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • Green onion & Cilantro 

Dipping Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter + 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon of Braggs Liquid Aminos

 

Preheat over to 425F. Lightly spray pizza pan with a cooking spray.  In a large bowl make the flax egg (the flax egg needs about 10 minutes to thicken up – chop some veggies while you wait). Then into the flax egg add oil and almond milk. Mix in flour, baking soda, salt, pepper and other spices. Mix until dough forms. Put dough onto pizza pan/sheet and work it into a thin layer covering the entire baking sheet. This is a bit of a process – you need to work the dough into the sheet. Cook in oven for 10 mins. 

While the crust is baking you need to make the sauce for the pizza: mix together the coconut milk, brown sugar and  red curry paste.

Once the first 10 minutes is up take pizza crust out of  the oven add red curry sauce and toppings (except the green onion and cilantro) then baking for another 12-15 mins.

Once the pizza is out of the oven – mix up the powdered peanut butter, Braggs and water to make a dipping sauce. Then top the pizza with green onions and cilantro. 

That is it, Friends – Red Curry Pizza!

Recipe Notes:

The toppings can vary – I have made this with spinach and also with bean sprouts. Use what you have that you think would fit into a red curry flavour profile. 

You need to use the full fat coconut milk because it is thick and creamy and this is the sauce for the pizza. 

You could also add some vegan cheese to the top. I would stick to a classic “white cheese” type of vegan cheese. That being said you don’t really need it.

You could also probably add a vegan chicken or soy curls to bump up the protein.

The dipping sauce could be made with almond butter or regular peanut butter – I just find the powdered peanut butter makes it really saucy (and cuts down on some of the calories)


 

I really hope you love this one as much as I do!
