So good! Pizza salad – even hubby said it was great! The dressing is not vegan, a good Caesar dressing is always going to keep me from being 100% vegetarian. There are vegan caesars on my blog if that’s your jam.

- 1 head shredded romaine
- 1/4 c croutons
- 1 tbsp vegan or reg Parmesan cheese
- Red pepper flakes

- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 egg yolks
- 4 anchovy filets it 2 tbsp anchovy paste
- 1/4 c vegan or reg parm
- 1/2 c avocado oil
Combine garlic, lemon, egg yolks, anchovy and parm in a food processor. Pulse till combine. Run to processor and slowly add the oil. Chill till ready to use.
Cook cauliflower crust according to package.
Toss romaine with 1 tbsp dressing to coat. Spread 1 tbsp dressing on crust. Top with romaine, cheese, croutons, pepper flakes and olives.
Slice and serve.
This recipe comes from Eating Well with a few minor tweaks. I found that 1/2 c a water was not adequate to bring the dough together so I added another 1/2 c. I also added a few more ingredients to the vegetarian delight!
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 c masa harina
- ½ c sliced scallions
- ½ – 1 c water
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 can black beans, heated and mashed
- 1 c shredded pepper Jack cheese
- 2 c shredded romaine lettuce
- 1 medium ripe avocado, thinly sliced
- ¼ c slivered red onion
- ½ c pico de gallo or fresh salsa
- 1/4 c crema
- Sliced olives
Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat eggs in a medium bowl.
Mix in masa, scallions, water, chili powder, garlic powder and salt. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet into a 9-by-11-inch oval. Bake the crust until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
Spread beans on the crust and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more. Top the pizza with romaine, avocado, onion, pico de gallo, olives and cilantro. Drizzle with crema.
