Vegan pizza dough Ingredients:
- 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water (110°F/43°C)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Cooking spray or extra flour for dusting
Vegan pizza dough Instructions:
Activate the Yeast: In a small bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes foamy. This indicates that the yeast is active.
Mix the Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and salt.
Combine and Knead: Create a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the activated yeast mixture and olive oil. Stir the ingredients until they come together into a dough.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. You can add more flour if the dough is too sticky.
Let It Rise: Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover it with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap.
Allow the dough to rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to the highest temperature it can reach, typically around 500°F (260°C) or more.
Prepare the Dough: Punch down the risen dough to remove excess air. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions for individual pizzas or keep it as a whole for a larger pizza.
Roll and Shape: Roll out each portion into your desired pizza shape on a floured surface.
Add Your Toppings: Top the pizza dough with your favorite vegan tomato sauce, vegetables, dairy-free cheese, and other preferred toppings.
Bake: Transfer the pizza with toppings onto a baking sheet or pizza stone. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the toppings are bubbly and cooked to your liking.
