Coconut Bacon – A Dream Come True!
The day we ordered our first “Tofu Bacon and Avocado Pizza” at the Greenside Café we knew we had to make this ourselves. But our first attempts at making tofu bacon failed miserably so we had to try other options. After trying tonnes and tonnes of other recipes, this crispy coconut bacon recipe stood out above the rest because it’s easy to make using minimal ingredients and so so delicious!
How to Make Coconut Bacon:
Coconut bacon is so much easier to make than you might think. Putting together a quick marinade, coating the coconut flakes and baking them for only 10 minutes gives you some crispy coconut bacon in less than 15 minutes! Coconut flakes are a unique base to use to make an alternative to bacon but they work surprisingly well!
How to Make our Cashew Pizza Cheese!
This cashew pizza cheese is one of the staples in our kitchen, I honestly don’t know what we would do without it. We make this cashew cheese for our pizzas, lasagnas and all things cheese!
What about a pizza base?
You can use any store-bought pizza base for this recipe but if you would like to try your hand at creating an authentic Italian pizza base with our secret tomato sauce recipe check out our free guide to making vegan pizza – you can find it on the right in the sidebar!
Time to put it all together:
Here we simply added mushrooms, halved cherry tomatoes and some red onion before baking the pizza. You can add whatever toppings you would like here.
After baking the pizza we added the sliced avocado and coconut bacon and tucked right in! We couldn’t help ourselves, it just looked too good. The creaminess of the avocado worked perfectly with the crispy BBQ tasting coconut bacon and that cheese is just to die for!
Have you ever tried to your own version of a vegan bacon before? Let me know in the comments how they came out, I would love to hear from you!
