English Muffin 'pizza'

Long time since the last post!! I have just been uninspired in spite of the Vegan Kickstart. I have not found too many recipes that make me too happy.
Recently, we visited a local Aldi's and bought ourselves a really cheap toaster oven. I have always dreamed of owning a toaster oven and making English muffin pizzas - this was when I ate cheese. This time, I had to make a fun 'pizza' without fresh mozzarella!!
I made these with hummus as the base for some, regular tomato sauce for others. Topped with vegan cheese pieces and pieces of vegan sausage, but mostly roasted eggplants and roasted peppers. The eggplants were thinly sliced and red peppers cut into strips and roasted in the 'real' oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. I added some olive oil, salt and pepper before roasting them. For more flavor, the 'pizzas' were topped with herbs (a mix of oregano and basil) and red chili flakes.

Yummy dinner... mmmm....
I'll try to post once more this week and then we'll be gone for 2.5 weeks to Peru and Galapagos. My back has been gone for the past 10 days... lots of PT, exercises and changing of travel plans. Fingers crossed for a fun trip.....
