There are a variety of health benefits to veganism, but sometimes it makes it impossible to enjoy the foods you once loved. Fortunately, with just a little bit of forethought, you can enjoy amazing pizzas even on a vegan diet.

Everything you need to know about making the best vegan pizzas

Pizza crust doesn't magically become vegan

  • What's the one thing that every pizza, vegan or not, must have? A crust, obviously. Unfortunately, the dough that it's made from could contain animal fat or eggs.
  • Since there are pre-made vegan choices on the market, though, this shouldn't be too big of a problem.
  • Additionally, there are many tutorials of how to make vegan pizza dough available on-line.

Toppings are the spice of life

  • This is where some serious flavour comes in. There are obviously a variety of toppings that can be added to a vegan pizza.
  • Some of the most obvious are mushrooms, sliced bell peppers and onions, but there are a few toppings that just go well when put together.
  • How's an onion, rosemary and sliced potato topped pizza sound? Maybe you'd enjoy your 'pie' with red onions, squash, zucchini and even some pistachios.
  • Oh, and never forget that there is such a thing as vegan bacon.

Cheese isn't off the table for vegans

  • This is another aspect of making a vegan pizza that really provides the opportunity to make a delicacy.
  • Vegan cheese? If you're new to the vegan lifestyle, this may just sound crazy to you. Those who have been at it for a while, though, know that there are a variety of different vegan cheeses out there.

Being vegan doesn't negate the baking

  • Once you've got your dough ready, tomato sauce spread out and favourite toppings and cheeses ready to go, it's time to get this pizza crisp and ready to devour.
  • Preheat your oven to 550 degrees. Yes, this may seem high, but trust us: it will work.
  • Put your work of vegan magnificence in the oven and allow to bake for eight to 10 minutes. Leave in a little longer if the cheese has not yet melted and the crust isn't brown.
