Are you a vegetarian, yet have cravings towards Pizza? Well, if you do there is good news for you, these days; vegan pizzas are easily available in the market for those who do not prefer non veggie pies. Vegan pizzas recipes are very simple and if you wish you can prepare these at home with these easy ideas.
How to Prepare a Vegan Pizza
Here are certain things that you need to keep in mind when planning to cook vegan pizza. First, preheat your oven to 425F. You will need to either prepare dough at home if you like to work with your hands or buy premade dough. If you are using a cookie sheet for baking coat the pan with olive oil – not too oily but not just barely. Now spread the dough out. If you are using a pizza stone simple spread out the dough.
Now add some sauce that is made of fresh ripe tomatoes or some vegan sauce found at your grocery store. I have even used spaghetti sauce for this step.
After you have added the veg sauce, toppings are next on the menu. Some favorite toppings to chop up are bell peppers, mushrooms of different varieties, and onions. Make things sweeter by adding chopped pineapple. Make things spicier by adding vegan bacon for a salty crunch.
Finding a vegan cheese is one of the most important steps you need to take in making vegan pizza. According to OrganicAuthority, “Since vegan cheese doesn’t experience any modification in proteins the way real cheese does, it may not deliver the same complex flavors that come from coagulated, acidified, pasteurized, and aged milk. ” There are vegan cheeses available that are just as tasty as animal based cheeses. One of the most popular choices is Daiya Mozzarella. Adding a good tasting cheese is an important step because what’s pizza if it doesn’t have the finishing touch of cheese?!
Now it is time to bake the Pizza. Bake it in an oven at 425 degrees Farenheit for 10 to 12 minutes. The cheese should melt completely and the crust needs to turn a brownish color.
Once you have baked it, it is now time to enjoy all of your hard work in the kitchen. Or you could always skip the cooking and cleaning it takes to make a delicious vegan pizza by finding a local vegan resturant. Don’t forget to have some salad with the pizza and of course, soft drink like a cola is must with it.
From fresh vegetables to cheese and sauce, the choice is all yours. However, make sure that you get all the right vegan ingredients for thhe perfect aroma for your pizza. One of the most important things is to get fresh vegetables, the best tasting cheese and make handmade dough if possible to get great results. If you are new at making vegan pizza, don’t worry if mistakes are made. That just means more vegan pizza to try and more ideas to improve and implement on your next vegan pizza pies.
