BEST Homemade, Plant Based Veggie Pizza


For the Pizza Dough:

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (110°F/43°C)
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Pizza Sauce:

  • 1 can (14 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • 1 cup tomato sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan cheese, shredded (such as Daiya or Violife)
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup baby spinach or kale, chopped
  • 1/2 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (for drizzling)


1. Prepare the Pizza Dough:

  • In a small bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups of flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture and olive oil.
  • Mix until the dough starts to come together. Turn it out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic, adding more flour if needed.
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-1.5 hours, or until it doubles in size.

2. Make the Pizza Sauce:

  • In a saucepan, combine crushed tomatoes, minced garlic, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Simmer over low heat for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Adjust the seasoning to taste.

3. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C).

4. Assemble the Pizza:

  • Once the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out on a floured surface to your desired thickness. Transfer the rolled-out dough to a pizza stone or baking sheet.
  • Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border for the crust.
  • Sprinkle vegan cheese over the sauce and add your favorite veggies: bell peppers, red onions, cherry tomatoes, spinach or kale, and black olives.

5. Bake:

  • Drizzle olive oil over the toppings and bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the toppings are cooked.

6. Serve:

  • Remove the pizza from the oven, let it cool for a few minutes, and then slice. Enjoy your homemade plant-based veggie pizza!
