Making Vegan Supreme Pizza

A slice of delicious homemade meaty vegan pizza.

In this post, I will show you how I made this meaty vegan pizza. If you are wondering, the pizza has Gardein on top, not ground beef.

The first step for making the deep dish vegan pizza was to create a homemade dough from scratch.

To make this pizza dough I first microwaved exactly one cup of water for a minute, and then I put a teaspoon of baking yeast in it. I allow the yeast to sit in the water for about ten minutes, and then I poured it into a bowl. Next, I added two cups of King Arthur baking flour, a teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of sugar,  a clove of crushed garlic, a sprinkling of chili pepper flakes, and a tablespoon of olive oil to the bowl. I combined all the ingredients thoroughly and then kneaded the dough for about ten minutes. After this I allowed the dough to rest in a covered bowl for about an hour so it could double in size.

I lightly floured the counter to roll out the pizza dough.
I spread the tomato sauce on the rolled out the crust, and added some hot sauce for a spicy kick. Then I sprinkled on the Daiya dairy free cheese.

Dairy free cheese such as Daiya is a pizza topping alternative for vegans or people who are lactose intolerant.

I let the Gardein beefless ground to thaw out before putting it on the pizza.
After the Gradein beefless ground had thawed out, and broke up the crumbles and sprinkled these on the pizza. On top of the Gardein, I added chopped onions and green bell peppers.

I baked the pizza for about twenty minutes at four hundred and fifty degrees.

The vegan pizza came out of the oven slightly golden brown around the crust. The Daiya cheese does melt, but it is not the exact consistency of regular cheese. I was never a super fan of cheese anyway, so even the texture of this Daiya cheese kind of creeped me out a bit since I had not eaten the real thing for several years.

  1. I love watching you make dough. There’s a part of me that really longs to learn how to do this. But then I remember that bread does not really agree with me. Too bad I did not learn how to do this when I was younger and could eat bread with impunity!

    Your pizza looks really good. I would have used different ingredients, but it looks really delicious!

    1. You know there are other kinds of flour. My sister cannot eat much gluten, and she buys a different kind. I might try a gluten free flour one day, and I do not even like to eat bread all the time. I have been craving too many processed carbs lately, and I am trying to cut back again.
