These Margherita pizza bites take minimum effort & make for a great snack or meal. Bring your family & friends together with this completely vegan recipe today.
Still not convinced? Well here are 4 reasons to LOVE pizza:
- It brings people together, it is quite the social food
- Pizza is the #1 comfort food, with all that gooey vegan cheese and carbs your body craves
- It can be a snack or meal, enjoyed hot or cold
- There are so many different combinations that you can literally never get sick of pizza
Now that we know what makes pizza so amazingly addictive lets start cooking.
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Next, dice the tomatoes, mince the garlic, chop the fresh basil, and cut the cheese into 1-inch-by-1-inch cubes.
You can also use dried basil if you don't have any fresh laying around your kitchen. Although, I do find using fresh tomatoes and basil helps mimic those classic Margherita flavours a bit better.
To create the pizza sauce, mix the garlic and tomato sauce together. Set aside.
The Italian Seasoning
Now, in a small mixing bowl, stir together the basil, sage, rosemary, thyme, and olive oil.
Alternatively, you can use store boughten Italian seasoning, which works just as good.
The Pizza Dough
Next, roll out the pizza dough and cut it into 17 even squares/rectangles.
Then, on each half of every pizza dough square, add a spoonful of the tomato sauce mixture, followed by a couple pieces of tomatoes and basil. Then, top each with a piece of vegan cheese.
Now, take the side that doesn't have any toppings and fold it over the side that does, then pinch the dough under the mini pizza bite. Fold then pinch the sides under the mini pizza bites as well, to create a well-rounded pizza pocket.
Next, brush the Italian herbed oil over each mini Margherita stuffed pizza bite.
Finally, place the Margherita stuffed pizza bites onto a greased baking sheet and cook at 400° F for about 8-10 minutes.
If Margherita pizza is too plain for you, you can also take your favourite toppings and stuff them into the pizza crust.
