How to Make a Vegan Pizza in 5 Steps

1. Roll out your store-bought or homemade dough and place it on a pizza stone or wooden pizza peel.

2. Top it with fresh ripe tomato sauce or some accidentally vegan store-bought sauce.

3. Add some optional toppings to spice things up, such as vegan bacon for a salty crunch or fresh sliced bell peppers and/or mushrooms for a savory veggie fix.

4. This is the best step! Grab a few kinds of your favorite vegan cheese and sprinkle them all over your pie. My personal favorite is Daiya mozzarella with a smattering of GO Veggie! parmesan sprinkled on top and over the crust.

5. Bake the pizza in an oven preheated to 550 degrees (yep, you read that right!) for eight to 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the crust begins to brown

That’s it! Go enjoy your delicious vegan pizza, maybe with some fresh herbs sprinkled on top! If you’ve got some time to spare before dinner is served, check out our delicious Caesar salad to serve alongside your pizza.

    This is great, I have tried it but used Tofu instead of cheese. I think that it goes to show that being a Vegan doesn’t mean you have to miss out on anything whether it be pizza or chocolate, we can eat whatever we want just like everyone else.

    Hey Nancy, Here’s some “food for thought”: While many consumers have heard about the cruelty of the veal industry, most people don’t know that the dairy and veal industries are inextricably linked. Cows, like humans, only give milk after they’ve had a baby. Thus, in the eyes of the farmer, the cows’ offspring are simply a byproduct of this milk-production cycle. Perhaps the greatest pain suffered by cows in the dairy industry is the repeated loss of their young, which is quite traumatic to these extremely maternal animals. Female calves may join the ranks of the milk producers, but the males are generally taken from their mothers within 24 hours of birth and sold at auction either for the notorious veal industry or to beef producers.

    Within 60 days, the cow will be impregnated again. For about seven months of her next nine-month pregnancy, the cow will continue to be milked for the fluid meant for her older calf—and this cycle is repeated until her milk production wanes, at which time she is sent to slaughter, most likely to be ground up into fast-food burgers. Calves will continue to suffer as long as there is a market for dairy products.

    Hey PETA!! Just have a quick question.. I’m a 19 year old vegetarian, thinking about becoming vegan. I live in Canada and most milk products I eat/drink come from Canadian farms which I believe all follow some sort of Animal Welfare Law and all the information I read about on your website is from the United States or other countries. Can I be sure about the milk products I’m consuming or should I cut it out altogether?

  • Nancy says:

    So what is in the “store-bought” dough?? Sure it is vegan?

  • Dieda Artemis says:

    Thank you for the ideas. Being a vegan/vegetarian becomes much more easy.
