I think that just goes to show I love pizza . Also I would like to know what's you're favourite pizza ? and what places that do amazing vegan pizzas in London ?  .     

Pizza Sauce
  1. One can chopped Tomatoes
  2. 4 Basil leaves
  3. 1tsp vinegar
  4. 1tsp sugar
  5. pinch of salt
  6. pinch od pepper
Method :
  • Add all the ingredients  in a blender and blend till the mixture becomes smooth and well combined .
  • Place in a saucepan and mixture heat toughly though and reduce  , this should take a least 6mins .
  • After 6min you should have thickened mixture and you and feel free to add any additional condiments and spices you like .
Pizza Curst / Dough
  • 2¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1⅓ cups warm water
  • 3½ - 3¾ cups organic white flour*
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
* You could also add oregano to the mixture too *

  1. Combine the yeast and the warm water in a large bowl. Let stand for 5 - 10 minutes until yeast is dissolved and begins to foam up.
  2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Turn the dough onto lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. The dough should be smooth but not  sticky.( if does become sticky simply add 1Tbsp of flour and knead till you get a smooth dough )  Coat  a bowl with olive oil, and add the dough. Turn the dough over to coat completely with oil. Cover with a clean and  dishtowel and leave to rise in a warm place.

  4. Roll your dough into a ball and let it rest, loosely covered, for about 10-15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450F. Dust your baking sheet. The dough will be fairly elastic, so you’ll have to stretch it out with your rolling pin. Place the dough on your baking sheet.
  5. Now the toppings! . Add the pizza sauce you made earlier however , you could add  pesto ( which is one of my favourites ) ,avocado or just plain olive oil.  After you added you base and the rest of your toppings and why not try no cheese version or you could add Nutritional yeast flakes for cheesy flavour .

Summer Fruit Crescent Bowls

Hello My glamorous friends , I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far . In the London I can finally say SUMMER IS HERE ! (But I want to jinks it , but it could rain in a couple of days or so . ) As summer is here in full swing I thought it was wise to do summer themed food . So these Summer fruit crescent bowls can get messy due to the sugar sauce being on the watery side however , if you would like it to thicker you could add more chia seeds or add 1tsp of corn flour .  

Shortcrust pastry Ingredients :

175g plain flour
25g icing sugar
100g cold vegan butter
2-3 Tbsp cold water

Method :
Add  flour and icing sugar  into a large mixing bowl. Add the margarine or butter and rub in gently with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 3 tablespoons cold water until the pastry comes together in a ball. After that rap the  dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 1 hour .Preheat your oven to 180c or gas mark 4   , Once one hour has passed divide the mixture into four . Get a muffin or cupcake tin and place in face down .

sorry it was really hard to explain but I hope this helps .


Place in the oven and let it cook for 15mins , once its done let the dough cool for ten minutes . After that twist the gently anti - clockwise and there you have it your Crescent Bowls. Now the fruit part ...

Summer fruit sauce Ingredients :

1 cup water
150 g of caster sugar
2 cups frozen summer fruits
2 Tbsp chia seeds
Method :

Heat the sugar and water add the frozen fruits as soon as the sugar water mixture begins to simmer .
 Leave the mixture to bubble for 3-4 minutes to leach their juices and begin to soften. You still want whole berries where possible though. Pour the hot berry mix through a sieve so that the juices drain into a bowl. Add the chia seeds the fruit juice and leave for 15mins . Now you should have thick yet watery sauce . In a blender add the fruit juice and blend till the sauce becomes smooth . Place the fruits the you removed earlier into the fruit juice and mix till well combine. place the fridge and leave to chill for 30mintes . Grab your Crescent Bowl and place the chilled summer fruit sauce inside and serve .

Vegan Banana bread

Hello my glamorous friends I hope you are well . As most vegan's will tell when transitioning in to the vegan lifestyle bananas easily becomes your best friend , the versatility of the fruit is endless  . ( personally I do think we all underestimate the banana but we shouldn't !  ) The possibilities are endless when it comes to bananas as I said before but you can honestly do so much with a banana such as use it a an egg replacer , thickening agent in smoothie's and most of all banana ice cream !!
The list goes on and on when it comes to the uses of a bananas .

For the banana bread:
300g bananas
110gcaster sugar
320g plain flour
140g plant based milk
15g baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon

For the topping:
1banana (100g)
desiccated coconut
brown sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (340°F).
  2. Roughly chop the bananas, place them into a bowl and thoroughly mash them with a fork to obtain a thick puree with no large pieces.
  3. Add in the sugar, the milk, the cinnamon and stir well to incorporate them.
  4. Add in the flour and mix it in a little at the time; we like to add it in 3 times to make sure it disperses properly before adding more. Whilst you are adding the second part of the flour, tip in the baking powder.
  5. Grease a loaf pan, pour in the batter and level it with a spatula.
  6. For the topping, lengthways cut half of a banana, and place the haled banana in the middle of batter . sprinkle desiccated coconut and brown sugar .
  7. Place the pan into the oven and start counting the cooking time. You want to cook the bread for 30minutes.
  8. At the end of the cooking process, pierce the bread with a toothpick to ensure it is cooked. If it is cooked, the pick will come out dry and with no mixture on it.
  9. Leave to cool and soon after serve .

Vegan Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

Hello my glamorous friends , I hope you are all enjoying the week so far . If you are live in the uk would say I hope you are enjoying the weather .... But summer has disappeared for the moment . ( RIP SUMMER ) .

 Any who as a vegan I find it extremely hard to find desserts when going out . Prime example was yesterday when I went out with my boyfriends family for dinner , and all I could have was on the dessert menu was jelly .... Now don't get me wrong I do love jelly however , I think within this day
 and age I think hospitality industries such as pubs, restaurants and cafe's  should have at least one vegan option for dessert .

Today I was craving for some cinnamon rolls however , I would have to make it vegan of course  . I have done a non vegan recipe and I will provide that link at the bottom of this post if you would like to check it out . These cinnamon rolls are light , airy and extremely sweet . ( But I love sweet things so ohhhh well )

  • For the Dough:
  • 1 cup vegan milk
  • 1 1/4-ounce packet active dry yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter, melted, plus more for the bowl
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more if needed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

    • For the Filling:
    • All-purpose flour, for dusting
    • 12 tablespoons vegan butter, softened, plus more for the pan
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
    • For the Glaze:
    • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 1/3 cup vegan milk
    • 4 tablespoons vegan butter, melted



    Warm the vegan milk in a medium saucepan over low heat until it reaches about 100. Remove from the heat and sprinkle in the yeast and 1/4 teaspoon sugar. Set aside until foamy, 15 minutes. 
    Once the mixture foams up and doubles in size, whisk in the melted vegan butter, "egg" mixture , and vanilla.
    In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the flour, the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, the salt, and nutmeg. 

    Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture. Mix on low speed with the dough hook until thick and slightly sticky. Knead on medium speed until the dough gathers around the hook, 3-6 minutes. 

    Remove the dough and shape into a ball. Coat vegan butter on the mixer bowl and return the dough to the bowl, turning to coat with vegan butter. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, 1 hour 15 minutes.


    How to Form Cinnamon Buns

    On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 12-by-14-inch rectangle with the longer side facing you.
    Spread with the softened vegan butter, leaving a 1/2-inch border on the far long edge. 
    Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle it over the vegan butter.

    Brush the unbuttered far edge with water. Roll the dough away from you into a tight cylinder and press on the long edge to seal.

    Cut the cylinder with a sharp knife to make 6-8 equal-size buns.

    Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan. 
    Place the buns cut-side down in the pan, leaving space between each. 
    Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, 40 minutes.
    Heat the oven to 325.

    Once the buns have risen, place them into the 325 oven
    bake bun until golden brown and leave to cool for 15 mins

    Meanwhile, make the glaze: Sift the confectioners' sugar into a bowl, then whisk in the Transfer the buns to a rack and spoon the glaze on top while still warm.
    Serve them right away or allow to cool further and pair with a big cup of coffee or glass of ice cold vegan milk. Store in the fridge and reheat as needed. cream and melted vegan butter.

    Do you think hospitality industries should have a vegan option for dessert ?
