I love pizza! I mean who doesn’t? I usually love to experiment in the kitchen and I am sure you saw my sweet potato crust recipe on my YouTube channel.  I absolutely adore it! For a while now I have been thinking in trying to make one with Vegan cheese.

Now… You know the issue with Vegan cheeses. They tend to be great for sandwiches, etc but in the melting department… they fall short. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try again to see if Daiya will not disappoint. I am happy to announce that they didn’t, I was quite impressed with the flavour too.

So here is the recipe, super easy and fast.

INGREDIENTS

(For the dough)

All purpose flour (around 5 cups if you are making two large pizzas)

Salt (a pinch)

1 pack of dry instant yeast

Warm water (not hot, otherwise you will kill the yeast and your dough will not rise)

Olive Oil (optional)

TOPPINGS

Onions

Green peppers

Corn

Pineapple (optional)

Pimentos (optional)

Tomato sauce

METHOD

In a large bowl place the flour, add salt and yeast. You can add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil if you want but it is totally optional. Add enough warm water to form a soft dough. Knead until it is super soft and elastic. Sprinkle very little flour if necessary, otherwise your dough will become stiff.

Put it back in a greased bowl, cover it and let it rise until double in size (1 or 2 hours).

After it is done rising, punch the dough so it goes down. Divide the dough in two and form two pizza doughs. Place each half on two rectangular baking sheets and start shaping the pizza with your hands. Be very careful so you don’t break the dough. Bake it for approximately 10 minutes until the dough is somewhat cooked.

I know some people don’t like to pre-cook their pizza dough but since I like my pizza to be super crunchy I usually like to do this.

After it is baked, add your tomato sauce and your favourite toppings. I like to add things like onions, sweet peppers, corn, pineapple, pimentos and whatever else I have handy.

Add the Vegan cheese last, you don’t have to add plenty of it. Less is more. Let it bake until everything is cooked (around 10 minutes). Remove from oven. Using a fork, gentle press the cheese on the pizza so it can melt easily. Put it back for an extra 5 minutes. The oven is supposed to be medium heat.

Remove it from the oven and let it cool a bit before slicing it.

I have a salad with all my meals so this pizza is perfect with a wonderful and healthy green salad.

Typing this recipe, it is is making me hungry! lol

Enjoy! 🙂

  1. Hello!
    Firstly, thank you so much for your blog. I ‘ve just started to think about going vegan and was not sure were to start. I cannot wait to try your recipes. I have a question: where do you buy your Daiya cheese? I’ve been living in TnT two years but I can’t seem to find any vegan cheese alternatives:(
    Thanks a lot

    1. Hi Cassia, thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the best on this new journey! About Daiya cheese, major supermarkets in T&T (at least in Port of Spain) now sells it so you will not have issues finding it.
