Versatile Vegan Pizza Recipe

You can still eat pizza, you just need to go about it in a different way. These 5 tips for vegan pizza will ensure you can still enjoy this mouthwatering dish without sacrificing any flavor.

Pizza is an experience that doesn’t take itself too seriously, after all, its main feature is usually cheese, some pizzas including several varieties of it. Because pizza isn’t fussy, the same could be said about its marketing.

Vegan cheese is free from animal products but maintains the texture and flavor of dairy-based cheeses.

Contrary to what some people think, vegans can eat pizza! There are plenty of vegan-friendly pizza options out there. Even big chains like Dominos and Papa John’s offer them.

You can now go out for vegan pizza, yet being able to make it at home gives you the opportunity to choose your own toppings.

Try out these two simple vegan pizzas or use them as inspiration to create your own. This recipe makes one 10” pizza.

Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 10-15 mins
Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 pizza bases
  • 200ml tomato sauce

Feta and olive pizza:

  • 2 mushrooms
  • 1 spring onion
  • 2-3 cherry tomatoes
  • 6-8 kalamata olives
  • 50g vegan feta cheese
  • rocket ,lettuce and spinach to garnish

Falafel and mushroom pizza:

  • 2 mushrooms
  • 1 spring onion
  • 2-3 cherry tomatoes
  • 6 falafel pieces
  • 80-100g vegan cheese

Equipment:

  • 2 oven trays
  • chopping board and knife
  • spatula or spoon
  • cheese grater
  • pizza cutting wheel

Method:

  1. Slice the mushrooms thinly to allow them to cook quickly. Cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters. Chop the spring onions. Cut the olives in half and remove the pits.

2. Here’s a simple way: if you got your cheese in a block form, use the cheese grater. Cut the feta alternative into small cubes. Now, prepare the cheese alternatives.

3. Divide the sauce between the two bases, then use a spoon or a spatula to cover the bases evenly.

You can place your bases straight on the trays if they’re non-stick, but if you think the pizza may stick to the trays, you could brush them with a little oil or use baking parchment.

4. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius

5. When adding toppings, arrange to create an even spread to allow it to cook thoroughly and evenly.

The cheese might melt unpredictably, so it’s a good idea to keep it slightly away from the edge.

6. When making pizzas using store-bought bases, it is helpful to preheat the oven. Place the pizza trays in the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes. Check the manufacturer’s instructions for the pizza bases to give you a bit more guidance.

A good pizza will have a nice crust along the edge but will stay soft toward the middle. We also want to make sure the cheese is thoroughly melted.

Apart from those, there is nothing to worry about; all the other ingredients in the recipe are either already cooked (falafel, olives, tomato sauce) or are suitable for consumption in both raw and cooked forms (tomatoes, mushrooms, onions).

7. When the pizza is done, take it out of the oven and transfer it to a flat plate or wooden board. Use a cutting wheel to slice it.
