Did you know animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of global warming? Not only does our current way of raising livestock lead to mistreatment and abuse of animals, it also leads to rampant deforestation and CO2 emissions, which plague our climate. With this knowledge, you may feel overwhelmed about where to start limiting meat and dairy in your diet.
One way I have increased my intake of said vegetables is to trick my taste buds into feasting on a plethora of healthy items on pizza at least once a week. What used to be a guilt-ridden, naughty “treat-yo-self” dinner has become something I look forward to with joy. This recipe is one of my favorite pizza adventures, and you won’t even miss the cheese!
Vegan Taco Pizza
1 packet of your favorite organic taco seasoning blend
1 16 oz can black beans
1 16 oz can vegetarian refried beans
½ cup frozen corn
½ cup chopped bell peppers (I love red, orange, and yellow)
½ small red or white onion, chopped
2 frozen Cauliflower Pizza Crusts or plain frozen crust of your choice
Guacamole or Slices of Fresh Avocado
Shredded Romaine Lettuce
Salsa of your choice
Chopped Fresh Cilantro
Chopped Fresh Green Onion
Plain Unsweetened Almond Milk Yogurt (This is a great substitute for sour cream, and I am still amazed at how good this stuff is!)
I hope you will enjoy this easy and delicious recipe. Your body and our planet will thank you!
