I have a confession to make. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with Trader Joe’s vegan cauliflower gnocchi—so much so that I just restocked my freezer with five more bags. Basically, anything Italian is always a win in my book, and one food blogger just came up with a genius way to combine two mouth-watering staples into one.
Instead of just creating a batch of regular ol’ gnocchi, Sara of @TheVeganSara essentially decided to turn them into bite-sized stuffed crust pizzas. Yes, like Pizza Hut-style, but better. “Thats right! Take that Costco and Trader Joe’s—I made my own stuffed gnocchi. Anything you can do, I can do vegan,” she writes. “The fam and I had this for a snack yesterday with extra pizza sauce for dipping.”
For your dipping pleasure, Sara shared the full recipe for her Pizza-Stuffed Gnocchi right on Instagram. And I don’t know about you, but by the looks of it, I can’t imagine this gnocchi being anything less than magical.
To make Sara’s pizza-stuffed gnocchi, follow the recipe in her Instagram post below.
