Half Baked Harvest blogger and cookbook author Tieghan Gerard made her Meanest, Greenest Pizza with Ginger Zee on "GMA."

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Grease a baking sheet.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough to a one-quarter-inch thickness. Carefully transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet. Spread the pesto over the dough, leaving a one-inch border, then layer on the sun-dried tomatoes, goat cheese, kale, and mozzarella.
Bake until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted, 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the two tablespoons of olive oil, vinegar, lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, and a pinch each of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
Add the arugula and sesame seeds and toss to coat.
When the pizza comes out of the oven, spread the salad on top. Slice and serve.

This vegan recipe has three cooking variations: Slow cooker, instant pot or pressure cooker and on the stove top.

Ingredients:
1 medium sweet onion, finely chopped
1 (1-inch) piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 garlic cloves, minced or grated
4 carrots, chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons harissa paste
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 (14-ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Cooked couscous or naan, for serving
Seeds from 1 pomegranate (about 1 cup), for serving
Fresh mint, for serving

Slow cooker method
Time: 4 to 8 hours

In the slow cooker pot, combine the onion, ginger, garlic, carrots, bell pepper, tomatoes, harissa, 1 cup of water, the paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
Just before serving, stir in the lemon juice, chickpeas, and cilantro and cook until the chickpeas are heated through, about 5 minutes. Add more water to thin the tagine as needed.
Serve over couscous or with naan and top with pomegranate seeds and mint.
Store any leftovers refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Pressure cooker method
Time: 11 minutes, plus additional time to come to pressure

In the pressure cooker pot, combine the onion, ginger, garlic, carrots, bell pepper, tomatoes, harissa, 1 cup of water, the paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Lock the lid in place and cook on high pressure for 6 minutes. Quick or natural release, then open when the pressure subsides.
Using the sauté function, stir in the lemon juice, chickpeas, and cilantro, and simmer on low until the chickpeas are heated through, about 5 minutes. Add more water to thin the tagine as needed.
Finish as directed for the slow cooker.

Stovetop method
Time: 30 minutes

Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large pot set over medium-high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the onion, ginger, and garlic, and cook until fragrant, three to five minutes. Add the carrots and bell pepper and continue cooking five minutes more, until the carrots have softened. Add the tomatoes, harissa, one cup of water, the paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Cover and cook until the tagine has thickened and is the consistency of stew, 15 to 20 minutes.
Just before serving, stir in the lemon juice, chickpeas, and cilantro and cook until the chickpeas are heated through, about five minutes more. Add more water to thin the tagine, as needed.
Finish as directed for the slow cooker.
