There are all kinds of Pizza on the blog.. With Buffalo chickpeas & ranch, with Tandoori Tempeh, Mediterranean Pizza, or Samosa Pizza, with regular crusts, focaccia crust, gf crusts, yeast-free crusts, deep dish and many more. 35+ Pizzas with 18 different crusts!

I tend to post creative stuff before the usual, don’t I! So today’s post is all about the basic veggie pizza in all its glory. Simple 20 minute crust, topped with mushrooms, peppers, onion, other veggies like zucchini, chopped garlic tossed in olive oil, and kalamata olives over a simple tomato sauce. Baked to perfection, then sprinkled with vegan parmesan (or use any of my other vegan cheese recipes for mozzarella, cheddar), fresh basil and red pepper flakes. Simple and amazing! The garlic tossed in olive oil cooks faster and does not taste raw. Use roasted garlic for variation. I generally chop the mushrooms and mix them with the garlic, add some oregano and thyme and fennel seeds to use it as veggie crumble. For gluten-free crusts, see here. 

I also made a video of the whole process! And it is easy.

Ingredients 
 

No Knead Crust:

  • 1 tsp active yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/4 cup flour, unbleached white or a combination of white and whole wheat
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano , or other herbs
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder, optional

Pizza toppings

Instructions 

  • In a bowl, mix warm water, yeast and 1 tbsp flour. Let it sit for a few minutes to activate.
  • Add 1 cup flour, salt, herbs and garlic and olive oil and mix in. Add another 3 tbsp flour and mix in. Get your hands in there to mix and knead for a few seconds into a soft slightly sticky dough.. Add another tbsp flour if needed. Gather the dough into a ball and let it sit for 15 minutes in a warm place.
  • Add a 1/2 tsp oil over the dough and spread with your hands. Gather the dough into a ball and place on parchment lined sheet.
  • Use a bit of flour to spread the dough into a 13 to 14 inch size oval. Spread it depending on on how thick or thin you want the crust to be. Keep the edges thicker than the center (see video). Let it sit for a few minutes. Preheat the oven to 435 degrees F / 220ºc.
  • Spread the pizza sauce on the crust. Distribute the sliced veggies, mushrooms and olives evenly.
  • Mix chopped garlic with a tsp of olive oil and a pinch of salt and oregano. Sprinkle over the pizza.
  • Sprinkle salt over the veggies. Sprinkle meltable vegan cheese on the veggies if using at this point.
  • Bake the pizza for 17 to 18 minutes or until golden on the edges. Sprinkle vegan parm of choice, chopped fresh basil, and pepper flakes. Slice and serve!

Notes

Other variations:
Chop the mushrooms and mix with the garlic and olive oil and use. Add some coarsely crushed fennel seeds to the mushroom mixture.
Saute the veggies + other sliced seasonal veggies for a few minutes with salt, pepper, garlic and oregano, then add as toppings.
Crust Tips: The crust will thicken considerably when baked. If it comes out thick and bread like, it was most likely kept too thick during shaping. Keep spreading the crust using hands or a rolling pin to make a thin large pizza. You will get a hang of the thickness you prefer after baking it a couple of times.

    The crust came together so quickly. That and the short rest time made it perfect for a weeknight dinner. The crust did thicken up during baking, but even rolling it out smaller than the directions say, it came out a little thinner and crunchier than I prefer. I will try 1.5x the recipe next time to see if that works out better.

    Wonderful pizza dough recipe! I’ve made it twice and it’s now our favorite pizza crust! I’ve also shared it with friends who love it just as much as we do. We also use your tip on adding sliced garlic mixed in a little olive oil and sea salt and I also add some sliced jalapeño to that, and lots of mushrooms! Absolutely the BEST pizza! Oh and a sprinkling of vegan cheese and what an amazing pizza! Thank you so much for this recipe!
