I never thought I would be saying this but I made a healthy version of one of my favorite childhood foods and it’s these VEGAN PIZZA BAGELS! Yessss! I love creating healthy versions of foods we all love and when I realized I had pizza dough mix, vegan mozzarella, and a mini donut pan in my kitchen… a lightbulb went off.
My house growing up was never the house to come to if you were looking for pizza bagels. My parents never bought foods like that (which explains how far my interest in healthy eating goes back to). However, when I would go to friends houses I would eat pizza bagels like it was my job. Bagel bites and kraft/velveeta mac and cheese were the foods I would eat most when I wasn’t with my parents. Haha, so rebellious yet so innocent!
So when I’m in my kitchen I always get my creative juices flowing to think about things that I love or once loved to eat, and I figure out a way to make them healthy (if they aren’t already). That’s one of my favorite parts about cooking, you can truly make anything possible. If you want healthy pizza bagels, you can make them happen.
The most important ingredient in this recipe is the dough. This dough has changed my life. For someone who doesn’t eat dairy and also doesn’t regularly eat gluten, pizza is the one food that I actually miss. Most other foods I don’t even desire anymore but pizza, I will always love. Finding this Simple Mills Pizza Dough is better than getting money from the tooth-fairy. It’s a boxed mix that’s made with clean, minimal ingredients. It’s super easy to make with only three ingredients to add; water, ACV, and oil (I used EVOO). And lastly, its fun to make and its DELICIOUS.
I am a true believer in brand loyalty and Simple Mills is one of those brands that I am happily loyal too. I absolutely love all of their products, they have super clean ingredients, they are delicious, and they aren’t very pricey. Simple Mills is changing the game when it comes making foods we love healthy, and I am grateful for companies like them.
Do yourself a favor and get some of this pizza dough. I made the bagel shapes because I had a mini donut pan aka the shape of mini bagels, but if you don’t have the pan just make mini baby pizzas and lay them out on a baking sheet. The rest of the instructions are on the pizza dough box.
