Big Mac Pizza

21 Feb

Well hello again. Have you missed me?

This has been quite the hiatus. I bet you’re wondering where I was. Well, I was here; still in the Midwest. In case you missed it on my Instagram, last year in October I had a second baby and since that time I’ve been pretty busy.

But I still think about little old Avocados and Ales all the time. Especially when Buzzfeed links to my page. Or Mary’s Test Kitchen makes an amazing video featuring my aquafaba cheese. Seriously, go check the video out, Mary has a way of making everything look easy.

I bet you’re wondering if I would come back with a recipe. It was hard to choose; I’ve been cooking throughout my hiatus but a lot of it is the same old standards. However, I’m constantly looking for something fun to veganize. My friend  MeShell inspired this Big Mac pizza and I’ve made it multiple times since.


  Special Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Just Mayo (or vegan mayo equivalent
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Other toppings:


  1. Let pizza dough rise, meanwhile prepare ‘special sauce’. Oil a pizza pan lightly with canola oil and preheat oven to 475°F (or as high as it can go.)
  2. Spread special sauce on top of dough and top with beef crumbles, then sprinkle with shredded cheese. Sprinkle sesame seeds around the crust of the dough.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes on the middle rack until brown on the edges and cheese is melty.
  4. Heat potato carrot cheese on the stove top over low heat while pizza is baking.
  5. Top with lettuce, diced tomato, and drizzle on potato-carrot cheese. If you have any special sauce left, dollop on top of the the lettuce. Cut and serve! I suggest drinking Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with it.

*alternatively, melt extra cheddar cheese with enough unsweetened plant milk to make a cheese sauce.
