Whole Wheat Vegan Pizza

I don’t know why I didn’t think to post this sooner. Every time I get together with my family I always make vegan pizza. It’s so aromatic and savory, your taste buds will thank you later!


Whole Wheat Vegan Pizza


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 package active dry yeast or instant yeast
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
spices such as: 
red pepper
nutritional yeast
garlic powder
onion powder

Mix the yeast with the warm water, oil, and honey. Let activate. You should it bubbling and foaming a little when it’s ready. Add flour and salt and mix together in a mixer with a paddle attachment and mix for about 5-10 minutes. The dough should be elastic-y. Grease a bowl with olive oil and sprinkle with flour. Put the dough into the bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise.

Vegan pizza sauce (you can make your own if you’d like, but I like to use one with minimal ingredients)
Caramelized onions, garlic, + mushrooms (these can all be made together. Make sure the pan is hot first, add olive oil and then onions. Watch them because they will start to color quickly. Add garlic and mushrooms at the same time. The mushrooms should lose their water in 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat).
Roasted red pepper
Fresh basil, to be added after pizza comes out of the oven

For assembly: 
Par-bake the crust at 500 degrees for about 5-10 minutes. Set oven to 450 after crust comes out.
Add everything else, except fresh basil and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Add basil.
Eat it up!!
