how to make vegan sheet pan pizza?
Making pizza at home is very, very easy, No expertise needed, just patience. Patience because the dough has yeast and you need to wait for it to rise. But it really is the only difficult thing.
- First step is to mix flour with water, yeast, and salt.
- Second step, knead the dough very well.
- Third step, let the dough rest for it to rise.
- Fourth step. Roll out the dough, put it on the tray, put the toppings
- Step five, bake.
Homemade pizza ingredients
Flour. Use all-purpose. I like the King Arthur brand. I like to use flours that are unbleached and unenriched.
Yeast. This is the yeast that is used to bake bread. It is dry yeast, the one they sell in sachets in any supermarket. It is the same yeast that is used to make cinnamon rolls, Vegan Day of the Dead, and no-knead homemade bread.
Salt. I use either fine-grained sea salt or Kosher salt.
How to make dough for homemade pizza
- Knead with your hands. Add the flour in a large bowl (the largest you have), add the salt and yeast. Mix with a wooden spoon and add the water. Mix until there is no water left. It’s going to make a sticky dough. Place it on a floured surface and start kneading until a smooth dough is formed. This will take about 10 minutes.
- Use the stand mixer. If you have a stand mixer, put the dough hook on it, put all the ingredients in, and mix on low speed until everything is integrated. Stop the mixer and scrape the sides down using a spatula. Turn on the mixer a little faster and knead for 5-7 minutes, or until a soft dough forms.
- Put it in a clean bowl and cover with a kitchen wrap or kitchen towel. Leave at room temperature for two hours or until the dough doubles in size.
✎TIP The easiest way to tell if the dough is ready is when you poke it with one finger and it "bounces" back with no problem. It feels smooth and forms a perfect ball of dough.
After two hours, and the dough doubled in size, you are ready to put the pizza on the baking sheet and add the sauce and toppings you want.
Sauce. Here you can use the tomato sauce that you like the most. It can be homemade tomato sauce, store-bought sauce, or made from canned tomatoes. I like my sheet pan pizza it the most when I make the sauce from canned San Marzano tomatoes.
Cheese. We use Violife brand cheese, it is vegan mozzarella cheese. It still tastes good if you don’t put cheese on top of your pizza, it will taste amazing if you top it with tons of vegetables.
Other toppings. You can put whatever vegetables and extra toppings you want. The combinations for this homemade pizza are endless.
My favorite pizza flavor combinations are:
- tomato sauce + sliced garlic + olive oil + vegan cheese
- tomato sauce + red pepper + mushrooms + black olives
- tomato sauce + sliced purple onion + jalapeño slices and cheese
- pesto + broccoli + vegan parmesan cheese
