Meat Lover's Pizza on the Weber - Junk food alert!

Junk-food alert! I can't say enough how unhealthy this pizza is, but it's so damn tasty. My pizza philosophy is that we should not pretend that there is something like a healthy pizza and the pizzas that are called healthy tastes like something else, not pizza. As a matter of fact, an American-Italian friend of mine shakes his head every time I post a picture of my pizzas with Spelt-dough and Soy meat on them.

This pizza has got it all; Soy, fat, gluten, you name it - so don't eat this too often or too much of it. One slice is enough for me, so you can feed your whole family on this one. It's a great pizza to serve when you're having a boys-only evening with loud music and beers.

I call this pizza "Meat Lover's Pizza" as it's a vegan version of the classic pizza. I'll start with the pizza dough.

Pizza Dough - Ingredients
  • 2,25 dl of water
  • 1/4 package of Yeast
  • 1 tsp Agave Nectar
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 5 dl Spelt Flour (If you want to try to pretend this is healthy mix 50/50 whole-grain flour)
  • salt
  1. Mix the Yeast with the water
  2. Mix in the Agave Nectar and Olive Oil
  3. Mix in the Spelt flour and knead into a smooth, yet firm dough.
  4. Let it rise for about 30 minutes (in the meantime, make the tomato sauce)
Tomato Sauce - Ingredients
  • 4 dl of Organic Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Agave Nectar
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp of Basil
  • 1 tbsp of Vegetable Stock (I use Renee Voltaires)
  • 1 tsp of Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp of Bio Food's Energy Spice Mix (optional)
Blend everything until smooth.

The Pizza Toppings
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees or fire up your Weber with a pizza stone.
  • 1 Vegan "Chorizo" or other spicy sausage (I use "Chorizo" from Astrid & Aporna) - Sliced
  • 1 Vegan Steak (I use Bonanza Steaks from Viana) - Sliced into thin slices.
  • 1,5 dl of Vegan Smoked "Ham" (I use Carbonara strips from Astrid & Aporna)
  • 0,5 dl Minced Red Onion
  • Vegan Mozzarella Cheese (Grated)
Spread the Tomato Sauce over the pizza and add the toppings.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes in the oven or 10 minutes on the Weber with direct medium heat. Check often so it doesn't burn. I used foil this time, but as I was out of paper I had to use foil. It's not recommended.

Enjoy and again, this is junk-food at it's best so be careful.
