I’m really loving all these delicious Meatless Monday recipes from Tammi, and I hope you are too. I went 18 years without eating red meat but never had a complete vegan meal. So when NUBIAMAG decided to take on this Meatless Monday challenge, it certainly forced me to get more creative in the kitchen.
Because I’m a Jamaican who grew up in the United States, I’m always taking traditional Jamaican dishes or ingredients and combing them with American foods. Naturally, one of my go-to websites for recipes is Jamaicans.com, and I recently found this healthy pizza recipe that will surely be a hit with the kids and hubby.
This Jamaican Callaloo Pizza recipe is quick and easy to prepare for lunch or dinner. The original recipe also includes saltfish (dried codfish), but I left that out since we’re strictly vegan on Mondays. If your kids are anti-greens like my 2 year old, you can do half callaloo topping and half cheese.
1 (12 inch) pre-baked pizza crust
1 cup seasoned tomato sauce
½ cup sliced onion
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 ½ cups cooked callaloo (see recipe)
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C)
Place the pizza crust on a large non-stick cookie tray or pizza pan.
Brush the crust evenly with olive oil.
Spread tomato sauce over it with the back of a spoon or spatula.
Sprinkle cheese and onions evenly over the sauce.
Bake for 8 minutes (do not let the cheese fully melt)
Remove and add the callaloo
Bake for another 5 minutes.
Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before cutting.
