Here I share my favourite vegan recipes that are not only delicious, but they are vibrant, wholesome and designed to nourish you from the inside out with vegan and vegan curious followers.
A simple and fluffy yeasted pitta bread dough smothered with harissa paste and topped with sticky red onions, fresh tomatoes, greens and chickpeas all drizzled with a tahini sauce. These pizzas are naturally vegan and easy to make – plus they are very impressive.
I have been having an obsession with yeasted bread dough over the last couple of months, in large part thanks to Lucy from Lucy and Lentils. If you don’t already know Lucy’s work, then I highly recommend checking out her website (here is the original Pitta Bread recipe) and Instagram – be prepared to be inspired. And to become very hungry! Her plant-based recipes are a dream and I have been a huge fan of her yeasted bakes… hence why I have made these pitta breads multiple times!
The base of these Harissa Chickpea Pitta Bread Pizzas with Tahini is Lucy’s pitta bread recipe which I have stretched and shaped into oblong-shaped pizzas. The dough is mixed in one bowl, kneaded for 5 minutes before being left to rise for 1 – 1 ½ hours until risen and blooming.
Divide the dough in two to make two induvial pizzas before smothering with tomato puree and harissa paste. Use your favourite harissa paste blend and they all differ in heat, so adjust the amounts accordingly. The recipe below is for a mild one.
The toppings for this Harissa Chickpea Pitta Bread Pizzas with Tahini are simple, wholesome and delicious:
The tahini dressing is the icing on the cake of these pizzas: simply stir together tahini, lemon juice and water. It’s simple but very effective: slightly, tangy, rich and creamy and very addictive!
These Harissa Chickpea Pitta Bread Pizzas with Tahini are easy to make, highly delicious and impressive for friends and family. They are best eaten fresh the same day as the dough is at its best, but you can keep it for a second day, too, and it is better to add the fresh tomatoes and rocket just before serving.
