Stuffed Crust Tomato Basil Pizza With Vegan Mozzarella




  • Preheat the oven to 450˚. Stretch out the pizza dough to the desired thickness and place on a lightly oiled and floured baking pan.
  • Cut 1/3 of the block of cheese into 4 or 5 strips. Place around the edges of the pizza, then roll the edges of the dough up over each strip and press down to create an enclosed pocket of “cheese.”
  • Shred the remaining dairy-free cheese. Spread the vegan pizza sauce evenly over the dough, then sprinkle with the shredded vegan cheese.
  • Top with the slices of tomato. Dip the basil leaves in the olive oil, then chop and sprinkle over the pizza.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until the “cheese” is melted and the crust is nicely browned.
