World's Best Pizza

When we first started looking for recipes, after Kim and I had made our switch to a plant based diet, I found this yummy pizza recipe from Vegan Richa.  Tonight I had some bread dough in the freezer so I pulled it out and started the pizza, but modified it a bit. This is one of the best vegan pizza recipes I've ever found and the following article contains the modifications--faster and easier to fix.

Vegan Richa
Ingredients:
Pizza:
1 recipe of Whole Wheat crust (You can use your own or I'll post another one hear later. Make sure you check back.)
One can of vegan refried beans
1/2 cup of your favorite salsa
Tomatoes
Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, chopped or sliced (I get mine at Winco. Embasa brand.  You only need a few from the can)
Sliced red onions
Pineapple chunks
Olives
6 oz can of mushrooms
One batch of Lime Crema (recipe below)
Chopped lettuce (optional)

Spread your Whole Wheat Crust on a sprayed cookie sheet.  You'll want this fairly thin, just less than 1/4 inch. Mix your refried beans and salsa together.  Spread on top of crust. Add your favorite toppings.  I was amazed how yummy the peppers were. Cook in 425 degree oven for 15 minutes. After finished cooking pour some lime crema on top. This will make TWO pizzas. Serve with chopped lettuce on top, if preferred.

Lime Crema:
1 cup of raw cashews
2 limes (you will use both the juice and the zest)
Almond milk (enough to make slightly pourable -- about 1/2 - 1 cup)

Blend the cashews in blender until very crumbly, add juice and zest. Blend again pouring almond milk in a little at a time till right consistency, scraping down sides, re-blending as you go.
