How to Make Vegan Pizza

Pizza, in my eyes, is a perfect food.

Just think about it: it fulfills your meal requirement for protein, carbohydrates, and fat all in one go, often times with an additional serving of fiber (if you’re like me and love vegetable toppings). No wonder it’s so satisfying!

While I do enjoy pizza with real cheese, I like to experiment when making pizza at home with testing out vegan variations. Since processed vegan cheese can be expensive, I’ve enjoyed new ways to get a ‘za fix, more creatively. 

This list covers a lot of unique takes. All of the below options are dairy-free and a few have options for those avoiding gluten. I have been craving spring/summer flavors heavily lately, so I can’t wait to try my hand at all of these fun options. Pro tip: keeping a frozen ball of pizza dough (I get mine from Trader Joe’s) is the best way to stay prepared for any pizza craving!

Description

Try a new twist on dinner with this Sweet Potato Pizza Crust! Gluten-free and vegan, this simple crust is easy to make and very versatile. Just 6 ingredients required! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 and 1/4 cup sweet potato mash, from about 1 large (you can keep the skin on if you’d like)
  • 2 TBS ground flax + 6 TBS water (this will act as your “flax egg”)
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (feel free to sub Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free flour here if needed)
  • 2 TBS chickpea flour, or more other flour of choice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp each dried oregano and basil (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine flax meal and water. Set aside. If you haven’t yet, the quickest way to cook your potato is to stab it with a fork a few times and microwave for 6-8 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Let cool for a few minutes and carefully scrape out flesh inside. You should have about 1 and 1/4 cup of mash. Feel free to chop up the skin (if organic) and use that in the mixture also!
  2. Add sweet potato mash to bowl with flax egg and stir together. Add flours, baking powder, sea salt, and optional spices to a separate large bowl and combine. Slowly begin adding sweet potato/flax mixture into dry mix, incorporating evenly with your hands. It will take a few minutes but will come together. Place dough ball on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Place a second piece of parchment on top and, taking your rolling pin or large glass, begin rolling into a circular pizza shape, about 1/4 inch thickness. Once finished, remove top piece of parchment and save for later. Bake your crust for 8 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and place reserved piece of parchment on top.
  4. Sandwiching the parchments together, flip so the bottom part of the crust is now on top (this can also be accomplished by simply flipping the pizza over with a spatula, but sometimes the extra paper comes in handy).
  5. Remove top piece of parchment and bake for another 8-10 minutes.Remove from oven and decorate with your desired toppings. Broil for a couple of minutes before serving; I hope you enjoy!
