INGREDIENTS

  • 1 vegan pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2  lb fresh green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1/2 lb white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1  cup vegetable stock
  • 1  cup plain, unsweetened soy yogurt (see note)
  • ¾ cups fried onion pieces + more for topping

PREPARATION

  1. Pre-cook crust in a 450° oven for 5 minutes and set aside.
  2. Bring a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to boil. Add the beans and cook for 5 minutes, then drain and plunge into a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside.
  3. Melt the margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook until the mushrooms start to give up some liquid, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and nutmeg and cook 1-2 more minutes. Add flour and stir. Cook for 1 minute, then add the vegetable stock and cook until bubbling.
  5. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the soy yogurt. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally – about 6-8 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup of fried onions and the green beans. Spread over prepared pizza crust and bake 10-15 minutes until crust is golden and toppings are hot and bubbly. Sprinkle with more fried onions to taste.
