Arugula, Beet Powder & Hemp Seed Vegan Pizza

Pizza was one of my favorite foods growing up before I started to eat clean foods and cut dairy out of my diet. If you too are looking for dairy-free alternatives, this vegan pizza recipe is for you. In this version, I am using a store bought crust. There are many gluten-free, grain-free options, including a cauliflower crust.

I have been consuming beets on the regular and I thought this would be a good substitute for tomatoes in this vegan pizza adaptation. Beet Powder is a unique ingredient that delivers big time. Organic Beet Powder has several special nutrients that set it apart from other foods. Its bright red color comes from betacyanins — immune-boosting antioxidants that are able to neutralize harmful free radical molecules.

Beets are known as a nitrate-rich superfood. Nitrates may support healthy blood flow, increase energy, and stamina. Our Beet Powder also has betaine that may help liver function, support heart health, cellular reproduction, and aid in the creation of carnitine. It helps your body turn fat into energy.

You can be creative and choose the toppings you and your family enjoys the most. There really aren’t any rules when it comes to pizza toppings. Let your inner chef guide you.
