St. Patty's Pizza Recipe & Free Cookbook Giveaway!

"St. Patty's Pizza Pie" Before Adding Sauce
Welcome to the "Heart Healthy Pizza" Blog!  Still being worked on, but complete enough to proudly post my "St. Patty's Pizza Pie" recipe from the world's first vegan pizza cookbook, AND, to announce a free giveaway of a copy of "Heart Healthy Pizza" contest (details after recipes below)!

The St. Patty's Pizza Pie recipe calls for a wonderful "Barley, Navy Beans, and Horseradish" topping sauce!  Here's a photo of a slice of the finished pizza:

"St. Patty's Pie" Out of the Oven

St. Patty's Pizza Pie 


• Whole Wheat Dough (add 1 T. dried dill before mixing)


• 1/2 cup carrots (sliced small julienne)
• 1/2 cup turnips (sliced small julienne)
• 1/2 cup parsnips (sliced small julienne)
• 1 cup diced cabbage
• 2 t. horseradish
• 1 t. wet mustard
• 1 t. dried parsley
• 1/4 cup white wine (or water)
• 1 t. soy sauce
• TVP Corned Beef Cubes (recipes follows)
• Barley, White Beans, and Horseradish Sauce (p. 47)
• 1 onion (sliced thin)
• paprika (optional)


1. Pre-heat oven to 425 or 450 degrees F. (depending upon your oven).

2. Put ingredients up to soy sauce into a non-stick (preferably) saute pan or wok. Bring to a slow boil, stirring to mix, and simmer on very low until most of the liquid is gone and the vegetables are still tender crisp. Drain, let cool to room temperature.

3. Arrange vegetable mixture on prepared and shaped dough.

4. Sprinkle on TVP Corned Beef Cubes.

5. Arrange onion slices on top of pizza.

6. Pour topping sauce on pizza.

7. Sprinkle on paprika (to taste).

8. Bake pizza for 15 to 20 minutes.


• Use 3/4 cup carrots and 3/4 cup cubed potatoes instead of 1/2 cup carrots, turnips, and parsnips. Be careful not to overcook the potatoes or they will be mushy.

TVP Corned Beef Cubes Recipe 


• 1 cup unflavored TVP cubes
• 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
• 1/4 t. ground pepper (or to taste)
• 1 T. Ketchup
• 3/4 cup water
• 1 T. red Tabasco sauce


1. Put all ingredients into a small pot, mix, and slowly bring to a boil.

2. Simmer on very low for 10 to 15 minutes, turn off the heat, and let cool. Drain if necessary.


• Substitute TVP cubes with tempeh cubes, reducing simmering time to 5 minutes.

Barley, White Beans, and Horseradish Sauce


• 1/3 cup pearl barley
• 1 1/4 cup water
• 1 cup cooked white beans
• 2 T. corn starch
• 1/2 T. prepared horseradish
• 1/2 T. wet mustard
• 3/4 cup water


1. Rinse and drain the beans (to remove any salt).

2. Bring 1 1/4 cup water and barley to a boil, cover, turn down to very low, simmer, covered, for 30 to 40 minutes or less (until the water is absorbed). Let cool to room temperature.

3. Add all ingredients except the water to a blender or food processor, pulse a few times, and add half the water, pulse, and then the remaining water to blend until it's a smooth pancake-like batter.


• Makes enough sauce for two 12 to 14" inch pizzas (around 3 cups).

  13. This is such an interesting idea! I'm not a pizza eater, but I shared it yesterday on my Facebook page.

    Mary Jean

  15. I love Tomatoes and Zucchini on my pizza. Yum!

  16. My favorite way to eat pizza is to make a plain pizza and a big green salad (with red onions, carrots, tomatoes). When the pizza comes out of the oven I put my green salad on top of the pizza, kind of messy to eat, but love the hot pizza with the cold salad.

  17. I love sundried tomatoes and pineapple! Your book looks wonderful. I'm moving to a more nutrient dense diet so it sounds perfect for that.

  18. Yes I would like to win your cookbook; My favorite pizza toppings are spinach, Italian seitan sausage, onions and peppers.

  19. Posted to my blog:

    and being from urban New Jersey where babies teethe on pizza crusts, the best pies are those with just the crust, tomato sauce and cheese, lots and lots of cheese. But those are for recreational eating. For a dinner pie I always load up on the veggie toppings, like mushrooms, onions, peppers, broccoli - either plain or roasted.

  20. I don't see the winner posted! ???
