Temporary Insanity Pizza

According to Wikipedia, on this day in 1859 NY Congressman Daniel E. Sickles won the first acquittal of murder on grounds of temporary insanity in US legal history. What a legacy.

This was my first attempt at pizza: spinach, bok choy, and walnut "parmesan." I was happy with it, but I really need a rolling pin. This crust would have worked better if I'd gotten it thinner. I sort of used this recipe from a site confused about exactly what veganism is.

makes approx. 4 servings

2 1/2 c. flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. brown rice syrup
3/4 c. water
1 medium white onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bok choy, leaves sliced in thirds
6 oz. spinach
1 15-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. rosemary
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
splash red wine vinegar
1/2 c. walnuts, halved
1/2 c. yeast flakes

1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
2. Sauté onion in a pan with oil over medium heat. After a few minutes, add garlic. Couple minutes later, toss in spinach. Cover the pan while you slice the bok choy.
3. Lower heat and add bok choy with a little bit of red wine vinegar; cover pan. Once the bok choy begins to turn bright, uncover and add the canned tomatoes and seasoning. Let simmer.
4. Do up the bread dough. Knead until it holds together, then press into a pan that's been greased and floured. Bake 20 min.
5. While the dough is baking, pulse the walnuts in a blender until rendered into a fine dust. Add in yeast flakes and pulse a couple more times, then stir.
6. Remove dough from oven, top with sauce and "parmesan." Bake for another 10 min.

According to Kafka's diaries, "Sisyphus was a bachelor."
