Amazing Vegan Bacon Ranch Pizza! You won’t believe this recipe is made with whole food, plant-based ingredients. The perfect comfort food!

Hi folks! This is going to be my last post for possibly two weeks, because I’m getting surgery on Thursday. A few posts back I talked about how I was diagnosed with a bone disease, and this surgery is to correct that issue. I’m a little nervous, but I’m trying to stay positive because I know I have the best possible doctor to do this procedure. Here’s to hoping that the recovery time will be short and relatively painless!!

I have some big changes coming in my life in the next few weeks. This surgery is a big one, and there’s also an issue that will (hopefully) be resolved in October. Once these two items are out of the way, I’m hoping and praying for a peaceful and joy-filled fall and winter season. This is my favorite time of the year, and I just want to spend it with my boyfriend, family, and dogs.

Last fall, I talked on my blog about how as you get older, your life sort of pares away to the important things and relationships. At 25, I find myself much more selective about the things I choose to spend my time on. Before this realization, I was more of a “yes-man” and went along with things that I was not comfortable doing or experiencing. And I think it’s important in life to push yourself out of your comfort zone, because there are certain things you should do that may not necessarily be what you want to do at the time. But there is such a thing as being a pushover, and I’m finally at the point where I’m confident to say “no” to things that do not serve me.

So here’s to making time for the important things, saying no to the things that aren’t, and Vegan Bacon Ranch Pizza!

This recipe came about because I was craving some serious vegan “junk” food. However, when I eat actual junk food I often feel absolutely terrible afterwards. So I racked my brain to come up with a way I could eat something super satisfying, without sacrificing on the healthy aspect of things. Behold, this pizza. It’s made with healthy, whole food ingredients, but tastes like pure comfort. The base is a whole wheat pizza crust topped with marinara sauce, then add on some coconut bacon, avocado ranch, and kale. Let me tell you, this avocado ranch is SO GOOD. It tastes amazing on this pizza! I hope you all love this recipe as much as I do :)

  • 1 Green Bell Pepper sliced
  • Chopped Kale

Vegan Avocado Ranch

  • 1 Avocado pitted
  • 1/2 Jalapeño ribs and seeds removed

Instructions

  1. Begin by making the coconut bacon.

  2. After making the coconut bacon, bring the oven to 425 degrees F.

    Dearest Sarah, thank you for a most wonderful recipe–I’m certainly saving it for later (since now I’m mostly eating eggplants, dunno why) :)

    I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery after the surgery. May all turn out in your favour. I’m sending you loads of hugs and good wishes
