Chipolte Garlic Seitan Reuben Pizza

Reubens and Pizza.. two of my favorite foods morphed into one delicious meal! I've been making versions of this pizza for a while now (I've also made a delicious Reuben Burger!)... but I think this pizza takes the cake.

Now, I understand it's ridiculous to put seitan on gluten free pizza dough, but I did. (and then I picked a good portion of the seitan off of my pizza)..

The other day, I made some Chipotle Garlic Seitan Sausages. They were a total clean out the fridge deal. For the liquid portion, I used some leftover Very Lowfat Balsamic Vinaigrette  and chickpea cooking liquid. I added nutritional yeast, sage, chipolte, tons of garlic, fennel and cajun seasoning to the vital wheat gluten and pressure cooked them for 20 minutes.

I topped my pizza some Tangy White Cheese Sauce (I'm still tweaking this recipe.. ), caramelized onions, sauerkraut, seitan and my special sauce . I did add in some caraway seeds to the special sauce for a more traditional reuben flavor. Yum!

Big Salad!

I have been getting a GREAT deal on organic baby spinach. I came into a bunch of $1`off coupons, so I've been paying $3.69 for 10 oz!  This salad was dressed with my Creamy Italian using Tofu Feta instead of Cashew Goaty Cheese. I also added some sauerkraut and caramelized onions.

It is SNOWING today... we are supposed to get 10 inches. blehhhhhhh.... 

.. and finally, My Portrait of the Day
I am funding my Cross Country Road Trip with Photo Shoots, Cooking Classes and Personal Chef services on the road! I will be posting my itinerary soon and I hope some of you will book a session, class or chef service!

  1. Ten inches of snow, ick! I have to confess I haven't been outside, but it doesn't look like we got hit too hard here in Wormtown.

  7. 10 inches??? I'm so sorry. It's April -- winter should be over!

  8. I zoomed in straight away when I read that title! Sounds like an amazing dish. Anything with sauerkraut is appealing to me, and especially the double whammy of having it on the pizza and the salad too!

    Sorry to hear about the snow; you must be pretty tired of that stuff by now.

    Spring will come soon! :)

  9. 10 inches of snow? That's a pretty substantial April Fool's joke. You pressure-cooked the seitan? I've never tried that. Does the result differ much from steamed?

  10. One of my favourite things is a tempeh reuben so I understand your combo (except for the seitan) as I try as much as possible to be gluten free. Sounds yummy though. Ick on the snow. If it's any consulation it's been rain, rain, rain here on the wet coast.

  12. give me the snow, I'll give you the sweaty temps we're starting to get.
    while you're at it, give me pizza and sausage! I'm so demanding.
    this is an amazing portrait of one gorgeous lady, mad skills.

  13. Gosh, I feel embarrased! I've never had a reuben, and haven't had seitan or pizza in years and years! This looks so delicious though!

  14. I've been wanting to make Seitan in what seems like forever but I'd like to try your recipe. I don't have a pressure cooker though so can I still just boil it?

  15. Oh my! That actually looks delicious! And I do love snow, but i guess having it every day must be tiring.

  19. the sausages look AMAZING - am i blind, or is there no link to the recipe? i saw in the comments someone mentioning a pressure cooker involved. we make our own seitan a few times a week but these look and sound AMAZING! excellent recommendations/meal inspirations as usual..
