by | September 20, 2019

We all love pizza, granted. Vegan pizza even better. That seems pretty well established at this point. But maybe just maybe we won’t feel super hot if we eat it at every meal, and our kiddos won’t either.

That’s where this amazing option from Niina of Vegan Niinja comes in. With fresh veggie toppings, and a heart-healthy oat crust, this is a recipe you’ll find yourself coming back to time and again. And again!

Don’t sweat it. It’s basically oatmeal.
