Vegan pizza

Ingredients: Pizza sauce

  • 200ml passata
  • 1 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp garlic purée
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Salt & pepper

So simple: put all the ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake vigorously until they are combined.

Ingredients: Pizza

  • Thawed out ready made raw, frozen pizza dough balls (we used Northern Dough Company Pizza Dough Balls)
  • 1 onion cut into thin slices
  • Vegan cheese (your favourite type)
  • Cold-pressed rapeseed oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • Rocket leaves
  • Balsamic glaze (the syrupy type)

Fry the onion gently in a little oil until it is soft and caramelised, then set aside.

Place a pizza stone or pizza baking tray on the middle shelf of the oven to pre-heat. Set the oven to the pizza setting or true fan with bottom heat at the maximum temperature, and pre-heat for at least 20 minutes.

On a floured surface, roll the dough into a round shape just smaller than your pizza peel. Sprinkle flour over your pizza peel and then carefully lift and place the dough onto it.

Place one to two heaped dessertspoons of pizza sauce onto the centre of the pizza and, using the back of the spoon, spread it outwards in a spiral motion until it is 2cm away from the outer edge of the dough.

Put some of the caramelised onions onto the pizza and add some of the vegan cheese in between the onions.

Place the pizza on the hot pizza stone and bake for five to ten minutes, or until the base has risen well and the cheese has melted.

Remove the pizza and sprinkle with some rocket leaves dressed in a little oil. Finally, squeeze some balsamic glaze over the pizza to give it a little extra zing!
