Bruschetta Pizza Recipe Notes
So excited to share another recipe using Fresh Start Fauxmage!!! Bruschetta PIZZA! Inspiration for this recipe came from one of my fav flavours of Fauxmage, and that is the Creamy Pesto...mmm. It's flavoured with basil, garlic and lemon and is the perfect creamy spread to enhance the bruschetta toppings on this pizza.
To keep things REAL simple, I start with a store bought, pre baked pizza crust (thin crust/PC brand).
I then spread creamy pesto Fauxmage on the base of the crust, top with cherry tomato bruschetta mixture and then bake in the oven until crisp and hot. A drizzle of balsamic glaze and some fresh arugula to garnish finishes it off. (I also bought the balsamic glaze because this recipe was all about making something fresh tasting & delicious when you don't have a lot of time)
This would be a lovely (and quick!) app to serve company, or have it for dinner with a big green salad along side.
If you aren't familiar with this delicious product it is available in many Sobey's locations (and various other locations) across Atlantic Canada and now also Ontario. Check their website for more details about the product and where to shop!
I haven't tried this recipe with another vegan product, but if you can't get your hands on some fauxmage, you could always buy vegan cream cheese and blend it in a food processor with garlic basil and lemon salt and pepper. The fauxmage has a lot of flavour...it is really punchy, so I would make my cream cheese that way too. Before being vegan, I used to make something similar with an store bought herb cream cheese.
