The Best Homemade Vegan Pizza

By Robert Parsons May 13, 2023

If you’re someone who loves cooking at home and enjoys eating pizza, you may not immediately think of trying vegan food. After all, traditional pizza ingredients usually include meat and cheese as the main focus.

However, we encourage you to keep an open mind. Sometimes the greatest culinary creations come from experimenting with new ingredients. We believe we have come up with the ultimate vegan pizza recipe, one that will even impress your meat-loving friends when cooked in one of our pizza ovens.


Your Culinary Secret Weapon: The Pizza Oven

To make sure your pizza comes out perfectly, we have a little secret to share before starting the recipe. Regardless of the toppings you use, we recommend using a pizza oven. While there are budget-friendly cooking hacks, investing in a good pizza oven is the way to go.

It takes twice as long for a regular oven to reach the appropriate temperature (250 degrees Celsius) compared to a pizza oven, which heats up more efficiently and creates a unique char on the crust. Pizza ovens are preferred by restaurants for their exceptional taste and texture. Now, let’s move on to the recipe!


The Best Vegan Crust

For delicious vegan pizza, make sure to enjoy a crust that is crispy and slightly charred. You can use this type of crust for any vegan pizza toppings recipe and feel assured of its quality in terms of taste and texture.


  • – 180mlwater
  • – 300g all-purpose flour
  • – 1 tsp instant yeast
  • – 1tsp olive oil
  • – ¼ tsp salt


  • – Start by combining the flour, salt, and instant yeast in a bowl. After they are mixed together, pour in the water and olive oil.
  • – To make the dough soft and non-sticky, knead it. Although some famous chefs might toss it in the air, traditional kneading is just as effective. Feel free to attempt the crowd-pleasing trick if you’d like.
  • – After achieving the soft texture, you should drizzle a small amount of olive oil on the dough. Put the dough in a bowl and cover it with a kitchen towel. Let the dough rise, which will take between two and three hours.
  • – After the dough has risen and doubled in size, it is time to add your toppings.

The Best Vegan Toppings: BBQ No-Chicken Pizza

Here’s a challenge: let’s come up with toppings that will please both meat and veggie enthusiasts. Since pizza is generally a crowd-pleaser, we have created a recipe that can accommodate both vegetables and meat.


  • – 1 onion (sliced)
  • – 250g vegan cheese of your choice
  • – 200g tomato puree
  • – 2 tbsp BBQ sauce
  • – ½ head of cauliflower

For Meat Lovers: Meatless Option

  • – 200g soy/Quorn piece

For Veggie Enthusiasts:

  • – All kinds of vegetables can be used. (However, we recommend pairing corn with BBQ sauce)


  • – Prepare your pizza oven or preheat your kitchen oven to 250 degrees Celsius.
  • – You should continue cooking the cauliflower and your selected vegetable until you can easily pierce them with a fork.
  • – If you decided to include “meat,” cut the soy chicken into small pieces and fry them in a pan. Fry onion slices until they turn a light brown color.
  • – To make two pies, flatten the dough and spread tomato puree on top, leaving space for the crust. Add vegan cheese generously for a rich, melted texture.
  • – For the “meat pizza,” add soy chicken, cauliflower, and onions as toppings. For the veggie pizza, choose your preferred vegetable toppings instead of the meat. Don’t forget to top your pizza generously with BBQ sauce.
  • – Bake your pizzas in the oven for 5-15 minutes depending on the type of oven you are using. If you are using a regular oven, it may take longer, about 10-15 minutes.
  • – Have a great time savoring your delicious cooking creation with your friends!
