Vegan Pizza Party

Nothing says weekend to me like pizza, but in my small city there are no restaurants offering vegan pizza so the perfect pizza night requires a little preparation, but its definitely worth it!


Vegan or non-dairy pizza sauce (recipe to come soon)
Vegan mozzarella cheese( I love Daiya) 
Olive Oil
3 cloves finely chopped garlic
Sliced mushrooms
Sweet onion sliced
Green Bell Pepper sliced
Tomato sliced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Sea salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Olive Oil

Vegan Pizza Dough

1 envelope pack active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm water
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon maple syrup 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegan butter
2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix 2 cups flour with salt. In a separate bowl place the maple syrup and warm water. Stir the honey and water together. Place the yeast in the water. Wait for 10 minutes or until water appears frothy. 

Combine the flour and salt mixture with the olive oil and butter. Once combined gradually add the water and yeast mixture. Knead dough adding flour as needed if too sticky. Wrap your dough and toss it in the fridge or you can leave it in the bowl covered in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Take the dough out the fridge and roll out on a floured surface with a rolling pin. Place the dough on a pizza pan or stone. Brush the crust with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and place in the oven for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove the dough and sprinkle with the chopped garlic. Spread the pizza sauce across the dough.

 Add vegan cheese and toppings. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Then drizzle olive oil across the top of the pizza and place in the oven for approximately 20 minutes. Oil covering the surface of the pizza will help the cheese to melt. 

Remove, slice and enjoy!
