Vegan Pesto Pizza πŸ•

Updated: Mar 30

There's nothing more satisfying than homemade pizza:) You will love our tofu pesto sauce or swap with our homemade marinara sauce instead! π‘±π’π’Šπ’ 𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒆 𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒕-𝑩𝒂𝒔𝒆𝒅 π‘ͺπ’π’π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ π‘ͺ𝒍𝒂𝒔𝒔 𝒐𝒏 π‘Ίπ’–π’π’…π’‚π’š!

Dough:

(optional: skip this step & use store-bought dough or pre-made crust)

With my robot chef or by hand, mix 8 oz water, 1 tsp sugar and 2 tsp dried instant yeast. Add 14 oz bread flour, 1 oz garlic olive oil, and 1 tsp salt and let my robot chef knead for 2 min, or knead by hand until dough forms. Place dough into a large bowl greased with olive oil spray and set aside. Cover bowl with lid or cling wrap and let dough rise until doubled in size (approx. 1hr).

Vegan Pesto Sauce:

(optional: skip this step & use Gotham Greens Vegan Pesto or swap with our marinara sauce)

  • 3 oz fresh basil leaves

  • 1 oz pine nuts

  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 5 Β½ oz extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 oz firm tofu, drained

Place basil, pine nuts, nutritional yeast, garlic, olive oil, & tofu into my robot chef or a food processor and blend 20 sec.

Pizza:

Preheat oven to 450Β°F. Split dough and shape to fit your pans by pressing and stretching it gently with fingertips. Form a small ridge around the edges for the crust and then brush dough with garlic infused olive oil. Add sauce, then lightly sprinkle some vegan mozzarella (less is more when using vegan cheese). Top with your favorite veggies then sprinkle some vegan parmesan and seasonings like black pepper, roasted garlic granules, thyme, oregano, or basil. Bake 8-10min if using pre-made crust, or about 20min if using fresh dough.


This recipe makes 2 pizza pies.
