Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

Yeast mixture:

Toppings for Pizza Margherita:

Instructions

  • Heat the plant-based milk in a saucepan for a few seconds until it's lukewarm (not hot!) about 35-40 degrees C (95-104 degrees F). Add all other ingredients for the yeast mixture and set aside for about 5-10 minutes to proof the yeast. If it starts to get frothy, then the yeast is still active and usable.

  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir with a whisk.
  • Add the yeast mixture and stir with a wooden spoon. The dough might seem too wet in the first few seconds but that will change within a minute.
  • Knead the dough with your hands for a few minutes and then form a dough ball. Cover the bowl with a clean damp kitchen towel and set aside (preferably in a warm place) for about 30-60 minutes. Here is how the dough looked before:

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C (390 degrees F).
    Place the dough onto a lined/greased baking tray and use your fingers to spread the dough into your preferred shape. Let it rest again for about 10 minutes, and prepare the toppings meanwhile.

  • Mix the tomato sauce with the tomato paste, salt + pepper, dried oregano, and onion + garlic powder (optional). Put the sauce onto the dough and use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly (leave out 1 inch from the edges). Drizzle olive oil on top (optional).

  • Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. Add dollops of my easy vegan cheese sauce on the pizza and put it back into the oven for another 10-15 minutes (or until crispy).
  • Cut the pizza into 6-8 pieces, add fresh basil and enjoy!

Notes

  • For the cheese, I used my easy vegan cheese sauce recipe without the nutritional yeast flakes, because my brand turns the sauce yellowish. And I added 1 1/2 tsp of psyllium husk powder which adds great texture (similar to mozzarella).
Should you recreate my recipe, please leave a comment below and don’t forget to tag me in your Instagram or Facebook post with @elavegan and #elavegan because I love to see your recreations.
  • Nutrition facts are for one piece of pizza (without the toppings) when you cut the pizza into 6 large pieces.
