Vegan pizza with artichoke hearts

Eating pizza as a vegan? Is that still tasty? The Italians swear by mozzarella and chorizo on a pizza. But did you know that you can always order a vegan pizza in a pizzeria? The pizza marinara is always vegan. This pizza has only a tomato layer plus oregano. With any luck, there’s garlic on there. When you are at home, you are in control of everything. So making your own pizza then, of course, is super fun. And, also super tasty! You can also easily make the bottom yourself. Most convenient then is to make it in advance during the day. Don’t have the time or inclination to make the bottom yourself? You can find plenty of ready-made bases in supermarkets. Then always check to make sure there is no egg in it when you want to eat plant-based.

Preparation vegan pizza

  1. Make the pizza dough: place flour, yeast and salt in a food processor. Turn on and then add water and 2 tbsp of oil. Does your dough stay too wet? Then add a little extra flour. If it is just too dry add a little extra water.
  2. Knead the ball of dough some more with your hands and turn it into a nice smooth ball.
  3. Place the dough ball with 1 tbsp olive oil in a bowl and cover with, for example, a tea towel. Let rest for 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Now make the sauce: in a small saucepan fry 2 cloves of chopped garlic and basil stalks and add the peeled tomatoes and basil leaves. Add pepper and salt to taste. Bring to a boil.
  5. Strain the contents of the pan into a bowl and, using the rounded side of a spoon, squeeze as much as possible through your sieve.
  6. Put the contents of the bowl back into the saucepan and bring to a boil.
  7. Then turn the heat down low and keep stirring until you get a thick sauce.
  8. Grab your pizza dough and knead by hand for a few more minutes.
  9. Make 2 balls from the dough and wrap 1 in plastic wrap and freeze.
  10. Roll out the other ball nice and thin on a pizza stone covered with baking paper.
  11. Meanwhile, briefly fry the slices of mushrooms.
  12. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  13. Put 2 tbsp olive oil in a small bowl and stir in 3 chopped cloves of garlic.
  14. Coat the dough with your homemade pizza sauce, using the rounded side of your spoon to spread.
  15. Top your pizza with red onion, mushrooms, capers, black olives and artichoke hearts.
  16. Spread the oil-garlic mixture over your pizza.
  17. Bake your pizza for about 15 to 25 minutes until nice and crispy.
