This Five-Veggie Vegan Pizza Will Impress Your Taste Buds


When you went vegan, you may have put pizza on a list of foods you never thought you'd experience again. However, it's not terribly difficult to make vegan pizza -- and the results can be just as tasty as a cheese-laden, meat-topped pie. Here is a five-veggie vegan pizza recipe that's not only free of animal products but is also incredibly tasty:


  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup canned tomato sauce
  • 1 cup vegan soy cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup broccoli spears
  • 1/2 cup jarred banana peppers
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Create the crust.

Combine the water, yeast, and sugar in a large glass bowl. Let rest for 5 minutes until bubbly. Stir in 1 cup of the flour, the canola oil, and the salt. When a soft dough forms, slowly start adding the remaining flour until the dough gathers into a rough ball. Knead this dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes.

Set the dough into an oiled bowl, cover it, and let it rise for 1 hour in a warm place.

2. Prepare your toppings.

While the dough rises, you can prepare your pizza toppings. Heat the olive oil in a skillet, and place the onions, mushrooms, and broccoli in a pan. Saute until tender -- about five minutes. Remove from the pan, and set aside. 

3. Make the pie.

Once your dough has finished rising, shape it into a ball. Place the ball on a lightly greased baking sheet, and let it sit for 20 minutes. At the same time, set your oven to preheat to 400 degrees F. Once 20 minutes have passed, spread the dough out into a 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Then, spread it with the pizza sauce. Top it with your vegan cheese, followed by the sauteed veggies and the banana peppers. Spread the veggies out evenly.

Place your pizza in the preheated oven, and bake it for 18 - 20 minutes. The pizza should be browned around the edges, and the soy cheese should be melted and gooey.

The next time your friends want to go out to a pizza restaurant, invite them over for a slice of this vegan pizza instead. They won't even miss the cheese!

How to Save Money When Eating Out

Welcome to my website. My name is Joanne Taylor. My family and I love eating out at restaurants, but with there being five of us, it can get expensive. In order to be able to continue to indulge in the luxury of eating at restaurants, my husband and I have come up with ways to order and save money. We always thought that ordering kids meals for young children was the cheapest way to go. But we found in many cases, it’s less expensive to order one regular meal and let our two youngest children split it. We make use of coupons whenever possible, restaurant daily specials, early bird specials, and other money savers. I’m going to share some of the ways we’ve been creative in the hope that you will find some useful tips.
