Pizza Making Tips For Success:

  • You want the water warm but not boiling (which could kill the yeast). If you have a food thermometer, it should be about 110 F.
  • The 1 tsp sugar is a small amount, but do include it (use real sugar, not stevia or erythritol), because it feeds the yeast.
  • The crust will rise more if using white flour or bread flour as opposed to spelt or whole wheat, so roll it out extra thin for traditional crust, or leave thick for deep dish or Sicilian pizza (also known as sfincione, which is Italian for thick sponge).
  • You can also make the dough into rolls instead of a pizza crust. Preheat the oven to 400 F, and bake the rolls 10 minutes.

Vegan pizza has come a long way in the past decade. In addition to homemade, there are so many frozen vegan pizza options now on the market, including brands such as Daiya, Amys Kitchen, Sweet Earth, and American Flatbread.

And more and more restaurants and chainssuch as Mellow Mushroom, &pizza, zpizza, and Blaze Pizza also offer vegan cheese for their in-house or delivery pies. (Note: Dominos, Pizza Hut, and Papa Johns dont carry vegan cheese or meat yet, although they do have vegan options if you specify no cheese on your slice.)

Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 1 pizza


  • 1 packet active dry yeast (.25oz)
  • 1-2 tsp sugar or pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 1/2 cups white, whole wheat, spelt, or bread flour (300g)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • optional 1 tbsp oil
  • toppings of choice - see above for 10 flavor ideas


  • Read the tips for success posted above before starting. Preheat oven to 450 F. Gently heat the water, using a microwave or stove, so its warm but not boiling about 110 F if you have a thermometer. Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the water, and let sit until bubbly (about 5 minutes). Stir in all remaining ingredients. Let sit 5 minutes, or you can cover and refrigerate overnight. Roll into a thin round crust, or make multiple crusts for mini pizzas. If dough is too sticky, add a little flour as needed. Add toppings. Bake on a greased or parchment-lined pan or a pizza stone for 20 minutes or until browned as desired.
