Rocket Pesto Cookie Sheet Pizza

Get your pizza fix and your greens all in one fell swoop. Once you get the hang of it, homemade pizza is a snap -- this recipe is a perfect example. It's a classic pesto blend with a twist, topped with fresh, lightly browned mushrooms, and bringin' it home on a crispy, bready crust. Make room in your recipe file -- here's another favorite.

Ingredients:

For the pesto:
2 cups loosely packed rocket (arugula, or use watercress)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
sea salt, pinch
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. red chili flakes
1 Tbsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
4 Tbsp. pine nuts

Pizza crust:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 packet (2 1/2 tsp.) fast-acting yeast
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
1 cup of tepid water
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. cornmeal

Top with:
1 1/2 cups sliced chestnut mushrooms/cremini mushrooms

Directions:

For the Pesto
1. Combine everything except the pine nuts in a food processor.
2. Pulse until the rocket is finely chopped.
3. Stir in the pine nuts.

For the Pizza Crust
1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt, sugar, and yeast.
2. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients, add the water and oil. Stir well and knead lightly in the bowl for about 4 minutes. Let rest for a couple of minutes.
3. Grease cookie/baking sheet and sprinkle the cornmeal over it.
4. Stretch out the pizza dough with your hands until you have a big rectangle about an inch smaller than your cookie/baking sheet on all sides.
5. Spread the rocket pesto mix over the dough.
6. Saute the mushrooms in a little oil until cooked and scatter over the pizza dough.
7. In a 400°F oven, bake for 20 -30 minutes, until golden around the edges.

How to Prevent, Treat & Reverse the Top 15 Causes of Death

In this video, Dr. Michael Greger of NutritionFacts.org discusses the role a plant-based diet can play in preventing, treating and even reversing the top 15 causes of death.

One by one, Dr. Greger goes down the list citing studies and articles that show the link between food and disease. Starting at #1, heart disease, he reveals that consuming just one egg per day cuts short a woman’s life as much as if she smoked five cigarettes a day for 15 years!

Watch and learn why the blood of people who eat vegan foods fights cancer eight times better than the blood of those who eat animal products, and why animal products are associated with a shorter lifespan whereas plant foods are associated with longevity. "These are the top 15 diseases killing Americans," says Dr. Greger, "and a plant-based diet can help prevent nearly ALL of them!"

The Future of Food

Bill Gates is championing clean, plant-based protein as the solution for feeding the growing human population. He recently launched the insightful The Future of Food on TheGatesNotes.com, his website highlighting socially-conscious innovations.

He writes, “Meat consumption worldwide has doubled in the last 20 years, and it is expected to double again by 2050… But raising meat takes a great deal of land and water and has a substantial environmental impact. Put simply, there’s no way to produce enough meat for 9 billion people… We need more options for producing [protein] without depleting our resources.”

The Future of Food explains the need for better, smarter solutions. Watch the short, inspiring videos spotlighting the innovative vegan products like Beyond Meat which looks like, tastes like, and is nutritionally superior to chicken flesh – the creators call it “a perfect substitute.” And cheer for Beyond Eggs whose video explains how ingenuity and a better product can change the landscape of animal protection and environmental stewardship virtually overnight. Good things ahead!
