Creamy Basil Artichoke Pizza Sauce

by RanVeganess- a contemplation of vegan randomness:

My husband Zander loves to invent new recipes.  It is never boring when it comes to food in my house…well, except when my son and I are always making the same requests.  One thing that little A and I love eating is pizza. This past weekend, Zander decided to make a new pizza sauce.  It came out really good and it was different from sauces that I have had in pizza.

1Tbsp of Vegan Butter
1/2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
3 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
1 Can of Artichoke Hearts in Water, Finely Chopped
1/2 Tsp of Salt
Pinch of Pepper
1 cup of unsweetened soy milk
1/4 Cup of Fresh Sweet Basil, Chopped


Saute the garlic in the butter and olive oil on medium-low heat. Next, add the finely chopped artichoke hearts. Then add the salt and pepper.  Slowly add the soy milk, while stirring.  Then add the sweet basil.  Cook the sauce on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Let it cool, then blend it until smooth.
Spread the sauce on your favorite pizza dough and add your favorite toppings.  I used the pizza dough from Whole Foods and topped it with Daiya Mozzarella, mushrooms, olives, artichokes, vegan sausage, and fresh basil.


Enjoy! ♥
