- Stirfry peppers,kale, leeks and artichoke hearts for 5 minutes on high heat.
- Place vegetables and vegan cheese on pizza crust.
- Return to oven for 15- 20 minutes until cheese is melted
- *If you prefer, you can spread a minimal amount of your favorite pizza sauce on the crust before topping with vegetables and cheese, but I found that it made the crust soggy, so think that it is better without the sauce.
