Yes, you can have your pizza and eat it vegan. Vegan pizza is easy.
Eating vegan does not mean foregoing your favorite foods. It simply means learning how to make them even more delicious in a healthier way. So that food not only tastes good going down, but feels good once you’re finished with the meal. No more eater’s remorse!
When I am asked if I miss pizza, I can honestly answer “No!”. Vegan pizza is a staple on our menu and we make it all the time!
You can make your own crust using a sour dough bread starter, but there are several great brands available through Green B.E.A.N. Delivery for those who wish to keep it simple. Lotsa Pasta pizza dough comes in whole wheat and white flour varieties, and Bee Free dough (gluten free) is also good.
I make my dough and, without letting it rise, separate into thirds (Or halves if you want thicker crust). Then use a rolling pin to roll onto greased cookie sheets. Let it sit for a minute as it will “crawl” back to center, then give it another go with the rolling pin. Use your hands to massage it out to the edges of the cookie sheet. I then bake the crust for about 8-10 minutes (feel free to brush it with a bit of your favorite olive oil!) and take it out before it gets golden. Add sauce and toppings and bake it for 10-15 min until toppings are melted and slightly brown. Let cool in pan then slice with pizza cutter. Enjoy! You may place leftovers in ziplock bags and freeze when cool.
