Instructions
Pizza dough
  1. In a big bowl put the lukewarm water, salt, yeast and mix using a fork on a circular movement, slowly adding in the flour, add also the blue spirulina. Continue to mix, bringing in the flour (you may not need all the flour)– when the dough comes together and becomes too hard to mix with your fork, flour your hands and begin to pat it into a ball.
  2. Keep kneading for 5-10 minutes, or until you have a smooth, springy, soft dough.
  3. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rise for 1½ to 2 hours or until the dough doubles in size.
  4. Punch the dough to de-gass it and divide it into 3 equal sized balls.
  5. Cover the balls of dough and let rest 60 minutes then shape.
  6. To shape your pizza take a ball of dough and press into a disc shape.
  7. Lightly flour top and bottom and gently press and pull the dough with your finger tips, turning it often to create a 20 cm circle and top it with the tomato sauce, vegan cheddar cheese, 4-5 teaspoons of vegan cheese on each pizza and 1-2 teaspoons caramelised onions.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven (180 C) for 20-35 minutes.
Tomato sauce
  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan on a medium-low heat, add the garlic, then cook gently for a couple of minutes, or until the garlic is lightly golden, then add the basil leaves, the tomatoes, water , vinegar, honey and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Leave the sauce to tick away for around 20 minutes, or until smooth, breaking up the tomatoes up with a wooden spoon. When ready set aside.
Caramelised onions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large deep frying pan over a low heat.
  2. Add the onions with a generous pinch of salt and cook slowly for around 15 mins. Stir occasionally to prevent them from sticking or burning until they become soft and a golden caramel colour.
  3. Add the vinegar and pepper. Keep cooking on a low heat for another 5 mins, stirring occasionally until the mixture is sticky.
