Healthy Plant-Based Pizza Recipe

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Simple mills pizza dough
  • Apple Cider Vinegar 2 tbsp
  • Olive oil 2 tbsp
  • Water 6 tbsp
  • 2 pizza pans or regular oven pans
  • Oil for pans and hands (we used coconut)
  • Pizza toppings (we used chopped red onion, chopped mushrooms, fresh garlic, and black olives)
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Italian seasoning
  • Vegan butter and garlic salt (optional)

WHAT TO DO:

1. Preheat oven to 350

(for the Simple Mills Pizza):

2. Pour dry mix into a bowl

  • Add 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
  • Add 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Add 6 tbsp of water
  • Mix well using a fork
  • (Add more oil if too dry)

3. Prepare two oven (or pizza) pans with coconut oil,  oil hands for handling and forming dough

4. Divide crust into TWO equal parts

5. Form dough into a ball and begin to press, knead, and spread with palms until you create a (~8-12 in) circle. Repeat with other half of the dough. Dough will seem to “break”, but kneading and forming with both hands will keep it together

6. Once both circles are formed, take a fork and poke holes randomly over entire crust

7. Pop both pans in the oven and bake crust for 5 minutes

8. This is a great time to prepare and chop any of your toppings

Here’s how we did ours:

  • Add chopped minced garlic, chopped red onion, and chopped mushrooms to a bowl with olive oil, black pepper, oregano, basil, and Italian seasoning
  • Mix together until all vegetables are evenly coated

9. Top with pizza sauce, dairy-free mozzarella (not too thick), and toppings of choice. *Option to add a vegan garlic butter crust. 

10. Bake for 15 more minutes

We usually top our plant-based pizza with balsamic glaze for a final touch.
