National Pizza Party Day - Parma! Vegan Parmesan Topping

National Pizza Party Day

We have all been in our bunkers for the past year and are slowly coming out. Here is a good reason to have a small get together with friends — National Pizza Party Day on May 21st!  

You may want to go ahead and make the dough and get all the ingredients ready so that everyone just has to add their own toppings, you can even just have it all done so when you’re ready to take a break from your dance party and eat, you just pop them in the oven and they are ready in about 12-15 minutes. For a really quick and easy pizza party – use personal sized pizza crusts and just add the ingredients! That offers flexibility and ease and you can even have gluten-free or vegan options available for your pizza party.

Ingredients for perfect pizza dough:
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • ½ Tbsp honey
  • 1 ½ Tbsp olive oil + more to oil baking pan and work surface
  • 2 cups plus 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ¾ Tsp salt
  • ½ cup cornmeal for baking
Ingredients for easy pizza sauce:
  • 1 ½ cup store-bought marinara
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ Tsp oregano, optional

How to make the pizza dough
  1. Put warm water in a large bowl, add the yeast and let stand for  about 7 minutes for the yeast to activate. Don’t use hot water or you will ruin the yeast.
  2. Whisk in honey and olive oil. Add flour, then the salt.
  3. Knead until well-combined (use a dough hook on speed 2 if using a mixer). The dough should be sticky.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place until doubled in volume (45 minutes to 1 hour at room temperature or 25-30 minutes in a warm 100 degree oven).
Marinara sauce
  1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan.
  2. Cover and simmer over medium/low heat until it is reduced by about a third.
  3. It needs to thicken or the pizza will be too juicy. If you need to cool sauce to room temp faster, transfer sauce to a bowl and place in a bath of ice water.
Ranch sauce
  • ½ cup Cream cheese
  • ½ cup Mayo
  • 1 Tbsp milk (+-), start with less, you don’t want it too watery.
  • ½ – 1 Tsp Onion powder
  • ½ – 1 Tsp Garlic powder
  • ½ – 1 Tsp Parsley
  • A few drops lemon juice to lighten it up
  • ½ – 1 Tsp dill – fresh
  • Whisk it all together
  • Salt and pepper to taste
How to assemble and bake pizzas:
  1. Generously sprinkle baking pans with cornmeal — this keeps the crust crisper and prevents sticking to the pan. You can also oil pans if you don’t have cornmeal.
  2. Grease a clean work surface and your hands with olive oil.
  3. Transfer dough to an oiled surface and cut into three even pieces. 
  4. Form each piece into an 8″ round pizza crust using your hands and transfer to baking pans lined with cornmeal.
  5. Spread sauce/pesto on each pizza leaving a ½ inch border of dough all the way around.
  6. Add plenty of mozzarella and toppings.
  7. Bake pizzas at 415 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes or until the crust is crisp and toppings are cooked.
  8. Slice, serve and enjoy!

Love Parma! We use it in soups, on pasta & roasted veggies. The only problem is running out of it. Getting ready to order more!!

I simply love bacon Parma!! I use on eggs, in macaroni salad, and on microwaved ears of buttered corn (my fav!). I am on a strict low sodium diet, as well as being allergic to meat from hooved animals so Parma! is perfect for me without any sacrifice of bacon taste. I just got some of the Jalapeno bacon and it's delish too! I'll be a repeat customer without doubt.

This product is approved by my whole family including my 3, 6 and 7 year old. We love to put in on popcorn or on top of noodles. Clean, healthy ingredients. Perfect for anyone or those who want to be WFPB, no oil or added sugar!

Parma, plant-based parmesan, is one of the best foods I've found. I tried the Better Than Bacon flavor because I did not want cheese that triples your risk of breast cancer. Parma tasted good and it's nutritional yeast is packed with vitamins, minerals and all essential amino acids making it a complete protein like animal products. A study found people eating nutritional yeast were 25% less likely to catch colds than those not eating it. Other studies linked nutritional yeast to better moods and less fatigue after exercising. And, Parma offers other great for you ingredients, too.

Hands down my go to "sprinkle it on everything" condiment! The OG flavor is super tasty but the jalapeno bacon is also amazing- It's especially good on my roasted sweet potato & eggs breakfast!

Bacon freak comes clean: I used to be a total baconhead, then I went vegan. I thought I was doomed to a life without bacon, but I was willing to do it for my animal friends. Then I discovered Better Than Bacon. Hoohah! I slather this stuff on everything and buy the big cans, five or ten at time. Jonesing for your clean bacon fix? Grab a can and splarge it across whatever you're having. With Better Than Bacon, you are Good. For. Life.
