Dairy-Free Autumn Pizza

Dairy-Free Autumn Pizza

Dairy-Free Autumn Pizza

  • Applegate Organic Chicken & Apple Sausage
  • Roasted acorn squash
  • Roasted garlic
  • Sautéed mushrooms and onions
  • Teese Mozzarella Vegan Cheese
  • Homemade pizza sauce
  • Homemade pizza dough

Notes: I would never have imagined making a dairy-free pizza a year ago, but since I found out my daughter has a dairy allergy I’ve adopted a completely dairy-free diet. My pizza dough doesn’t contain dairy, but if you’ve being reading my blog for long you know I love cheese. Recently, I’ve started to experiment with dairy-free cheese. Non-dairy cheese will never compare to a fresh block of soft-ripened cheese, but I’ve come to appreciate the subtle flavors in vegan cheese. However, what made this pizza special was the roasted acorn squash. Combined with chicken and apple sausage, my dairy-free autumn pizza tasted like fall.

If you’ve had a good experience with a dairy-free cheese, please let me know because I am open to suggestions.

Apple Sausage Pizza Recipe

Apple Sausage Pizza

Ingredients

Notes: The 31st Annual Downtown Ithaca Apple Harvest Festival inspired this pizza. I picked up some fresh apples from the friendly students at Cornell Orchards and knew I had to make a pizza. After a quick stop at GreenStar Natural Foods Market for some organic ingredients I was ready to assemble. A light spread of Annie’s Goddess Dressing helped keep the dough from drying out. My husband said the flavors of the apples, onions, cheddar cheese, and sausage were an excellent combination.

Ingredients

  • Grilled chicken (shredded)
  • Sautéed red onions

Notes: Chicken fajita pizza is one of my staples. The difference between this version and one I posted a couple years ago is that the chicken for this pizza was cooked on the grill and I used mozzarella cheese rather than cheddar cheese.

Chicken and Bok Choy Pizza

Chicken Bok Choy Pizza

Bok Choy is Chinese cabbage widely used in Asian cuisine. The green leaf vegetable is high in vitamin A and C and best of all, it holds up well under the high  temperatures required for baking pizza.

1. Prehead the oven to 500 degrees
2. Grill two chicken breasts that have marinated in Asian BBQ sauce
3. – Steam the bok choy
3. Pre-bake homemade dough on a pizza stone for 4 minutes
4. Spread Asian BBQ sauce on crust
5. Sprinkle on a generous portion of shredded cheddar cheese
6. Top the pizza with sliced grilled chicken and bok choy
7. Bake for 8 minutes

Andrew’s little brother came over for this pizza. His favorite pizzas have been my Garbage Plate pizza, pulled pork pizza, and spicy meat pizza, so it was funny to see him devour a bok choy pizza with grilled chicken. It must have been good because there weren’t any leftovers!
