Yummy, yummy, yum, yum!
When I was a kid I used to eat a crap ton of spinach Alfredo pizza. It is one thing I miss. So here is an equally amazing vegan version. This vegan spinach Alfredo pizza is off the charts delish and ridiculously easy! A super simple vegan Alfredo sauce tops pizza dough. Then spinach, garlic and vegan cheese. This can be thrown together in 10 minutes and it cooks just as fast!
I like to use frozen spinach that has been thawed. It’s nice to have it already cooked so it doesn’t release as much liquid. I just thaw the spinach before I want to make this pizza, then squeeze as much liquid out of the spinach as I can. Sprinkle all over the pizza, it works out so well! The garlic, spinach and Alfredo sauce are made for eachother.
I like to roll the dough out really thin so it gets super crispy! However you like your dough, it will be spectacular! You can make it like I do, in a large rectangle with really thin, or a classic circle with a thicker crust.
My vegan Alfredo sauce is soooo easy, and made almost like you would make a classic Alfredo sauce. Cheesy, lemony and perfect for this vegan spinach Alfredo pizza. Every time I make this pizza, I can’t stop eating it. This may sound a little strange, but this pizza sprinkled with red pepper flakes and drizzled with agave is incredible AF.
Creamy vegan Alfredo sauce, spinach, lots of garlic and vegan cheese! So good!
- 1 Tablespoon Vegan butter, I used Earth Balance
- 1 Tablespoon All purpose flour
- 1/2 Cup Non dairy milk, I used Almond
- 1 Tablespoon Nutritional yeast
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 Pound(16oz) Pizza dough, vegan I used Trader Joe's
- 1 Cup Frozen spinach, thawed
- 1/2 Cup Vegan cheese, I used Follow Your Heart
- 10 Cloves Garlic, chopped
Make the Alfredo sauce. In a small sauce pan, or skillet. Heat the vegan butter on medium high. Melt and then add the flour. Whisk together to make a paste(roux).
Now, add the non dairy milk to the pan and whisk to combine the milk with the roux. Whisk until fully combined. Then add the nutritional yeast, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Bring to a simmer, reducing heat as needed. Whisk until the sauce becomes thick and creamy. It should only take a few minutes. Add another pinch of salt and pepper if needed. Remove from heat.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Now, squeeze as much liquid out of the thawed spinach as you can.
Then roll your pizza dough out as thick as you want. I like mine really thin and crispy, so I like to press mine out into a large sheet pan. Place on a baking sheet or pizza pan that is oiled or sprayed with non stick spray.
Next, spread the vegan Alfredo sauce over the whole pizza. Then sprinkle with chopped garlic and then sprinkle with the spinach. Top with the vegan cheese.
Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the dough is crispy and brown. Serve! I love red pepper flakes and agave drizzled on top.
