Chilli Pesto and Tomato Vegan Pizza

This pizza is so moreish and nicer than any regular pizza I have ever had, honest. It’s tangy, tasty, spicy – basically full of flavour and also really juicy.  You really don’t need cheese!

Ingredients, makes 2 pizzas

Ready made vegan pizza bases, 27 cm

50 grams raw almonds, blanched

225 grams of cherry tomatoes

1 garlic clove

1-2 chillies, stalks removed

1 bunch of basil

Half a teaspoon of salt

Juice of half a lemon

2 large tomatoes

Optional, yeast flakes to serve

Method

Place the almonds in a cup of boiled water for around 20 minutes.

When the almonds are ready, place everything apart from the large tomatoes and a few basil leaves in a food processor.  Whizz up until all ingredients are finely chopped and pesto like.

Spoon 3 heaped tablespoons of pesto onto each pizza base and spread evenly.

Slice up the tomatoes thinly, about a quarter of a cm think.  Spread on top of the pizza in a single layer,  covering the pizza with no gaps.  Place in the oven and bake as per pizza base instructions.

To serve, sprinkle over yeast flakes and retained basil leaves.  Enjoy!
