Caramelized Red Onion and Spinach Pizza.


There are times when a slice of pizza is needed, for example, when your planning you imaginary come dine with me menu and you need something you can grab in one hand and eat whilst scribbling down a load of poncy recipes.

1 1/2 cups self raising flour
Pinch o’ salt
3/4 cup water
1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing base

3 red onions, sliced very thinly
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 big handful of fresh spinach
Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 1/4 cup soy milk/ kara coconut milk/ other vegan mylk
black pepper
a sprinkling of linseeds (optional)

Mix the salt through the self raising flour, and rub in the oil. Stir through the water bit by bit, until it comes together as a nice dough. Knead lightly on a floured surface before rolling /shaping by hand into a nice pizza base and is about 1/2cm thick. Place on a lightly greased baking tray, then brush the dough with oil.

To caramelize the onions, fry in a tbsp of oil over medium heat, until the onions are browned and beginning to caramelize  add the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook until completely browned and caramelized, take off the heat and layer on most of the spinach onto the the dough base, then cover with the caramelized onions.

For the creamy topping, heat the oil on a medium heat and whisk in the flour and nutritional yeast, cook whilst whisking for about 1 minute before taking off the heat and pour in the mylk and add the black pepper, whilst still whisking, this should be very, very thick so you can just dollop it on your pizza before putting it in a preheated oven at 230c/450f for about 10-15 minutes until the base is slightly golden. Serve drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar and a sprinkling of linseeds if desired.

  1. Your creamy cheez topping is to die for! I’ve always used yeast based dough for crust, but your recipe has me interested in trying the simpler route!
