Its all oil-free! The Italian place next to us doesn't use oil in their pizza & has a huge vegan menu! For our dinner party we took the pizzas up a notch & added our own toppings! 

#1. Mexican Pizza - added black beans, roasted corn, jalapeƱos, avocado + the base of tomatoes, mushroom & green peppers from the pizza place.

#2. Potato Pizza - added roasted red potatoes with herbs from my garden & roasted corn to the base of tomatoes, mushroom & green peppers from the pizza place.

#3. Italian Pizza - added arugula, basil, olives, to the base of tomatoes, artichokes & green peppers from the pizza place.

We made an amazing salad with farmers market veggies & had some fun drinks & guest brought sorbet & berries & vegan dark chocolate!

Engine 2 No-Oil Pizza Crust is DELICIOUS!

 Engine 2 has come out with various products over the years & these Pizza Crusts are top notch!  I wish they were organic, but at least there is no added oils!  They bake up crisp and have a wonderful texture.


For pizza sauce I use Tomato Puree in a glass bottle & heat it on the stove to reduce it with lots of various dried chili peppers & paprika plus some white pepper.  Load on the veggies, this was all from my garden!  Cherry Tomatos, basil, jalapeno & orange pepper.  Best part about California is growing stuff year round!
