I haven’t done any recipes for a long time, so I thought that I’d share one for vegan pizza that my daughter and I have about every week and a half. Since we love pizza, it’s always a big hit, and you can simply change the toppings for any variety of veggies.
1 package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ½ cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in remaining ingredients; beat vigorously 20 strokes. Let rest about 5 minutes. Pat onto greased pizza sheet with floured fingers (I don’t have a pizza sheet, so I just use an edged pan).
This is the fun part. I put tomato sauce on, then I’ll add any veggies I happen to have on hand, including but not limited to: onions, mushrooms, broccoli, peppers, artichokes, zucchini or squash. I will often saute the veggies first since that gives the pizza a nice flavor. You can also put any spices you want onto the pizza. I usually use oregano, garlic and pepper; but you can put anything you like on the top. Personally, I don’t really like any of the vegan cheeses, so I don’t use them, but if you like them, go ahead. It’s your pizza!
Cook in pre-heated 425° oven until crust is golden, about 20 or 25 minutes.
