I was born in Italy and off course I love pizza… Since I became vegan I tried a lot of recipes to made a great vegan pizza and finally I had my ta-da moment.
vegan pizza mushroomI’d like to share this recipe with you!!!

Ingredients for the crust
1 tsp activeyeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 tbsp flour
1 1/4 cup flour unbleached white or a combination of white and whole wheat
1/3 tsp salt
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano or other herbs

Ingredients for the toppings
Red Pizza sauce of choice
thinly sliced white mushrooms
sliced Mozzarisella (or any of my other homemade cheeses like cheddar, etc)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

In a bowl, mix warm water, yeast and 1 tbsp flour. Let it sit for a few minutes to activate.
Add 1 cup flour, salt, herbs and garlic and olive oil and mix in. Add another 3 tbsp flour and mix in. Get your hands in there to mix and knead for a few seconds into a soft slightly sticky dough. Add another tbsp flour if needed. Gather the dough into a ball and let it sit for 15 minutes in a warm place.
Add a 1/2 tsp oil over the dough. Gather the dough into a ball and place on parchment lined sheet. Use a bit of flour to spread the dough into a 13 to 14 inch size oval. Spread it depending on on how thick or thin you want the crust to be. Preheat the oven to 435 degrees F / 220ºc.

Spread the pizza sauce on the crust. Bake the pizza for 17 to 18 minutes or until golden on the edges. Sprinkle the mushroms and the mozzarisella. Bake for another 10 to 15 minutes. Off and open the oven or a few seconds then slice and serve!

Happy week
