Roasted Ratatouille Pizza with Chickpea Cheese Sauce

What a fun, easy, and healthy pizza. Kristy from KeepinItKind.com describes her creation: “The chickpea cheese sauce gets warm and gooey and makes every bite full of what seems to be super melty cheese. The roasted ratatouille… is a spicy, robust compliment to the cheesy sauce.” This simple recipe makes a big batch. So, enjoy a second and third slice with a friend then pack some away for this week's lunches.

Ingredients:

Use this recipe for pizza dough (or use pre-made dough)
1 eggplant, diced
3 Gold Bar squash (or other zucchini type squash), diced
1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced
olive oil spray
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. marjoram
1 tsp. thyme
salt and pepper to taste

For the Cheese Sauce
15 oz. can fire-roasted tomatoes
15 oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
juice from 1 lemon
1 tsp. white miso
1 tsp. garlic powder
several dashes smoked paprika
salt to taste

NOTE: This recipe makes THREE pizzas

Directions:

1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread out chopped/sliced eggplant, squash, bell pepper, and onion on the baking sheets.
2. Spray with olive oil and evenly sprinkle spices over the vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste and toss to fully coat.
3. Roast the vegetables at 400°F for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through to cook evenly.
4. While the veggies are cooking, roll out pizza dough into a round shape and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet or use a pizza pan or pizza stone.

For the Cheese Sauce
5. In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, miso, garlic powder, paprika, and salt. Puree until smooth.
6. When the vegetables are done roasting, place them in a bowl with the fire-roasted tomatoes and stir to combine.

Assemble
7. Increase the oven temperature to 475°F. Spread about 1/3 of the sauce on the prepared pizza dough. Top with 1/3 of the tomato/vegetable mixture. Bake at 475°F for 12-15 minutes, or until crust is risen and slightly browned.
8. Remove from oven and serve hot. Enjoy!
