Vegan Pepperoni Pizza

I've had the pleasure of enjoying many vegan pizzas, particularly as vegan food becomes more commonplace and recipes become more creative. Whilst I'm always up for a healthy spin on a pizza (I'm talking cauliflower base and veggie toppings - yum!), sometimes I just need a hearty, unapologetically indulgent meal, and I'm happy to report that my Vegan Pepperoni Pizza is just that.

My recipe includes details on how to make a crunchy homemade base, but its secret ingredient is without a doubt Suzy Spoon's Peppernoni. It's meaty, packed full of flavour, and 100% vegan (also nut free!). Pick up a packet and add it to your pizza - you won't be able to get enough of the aroma in the room as your pizza cooks!

Ingredients for the pizza dough

  • 230g warm water
  • 4g instant yeast
  • 1 tbs caster sugar
  • 600g baker's flour
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 100ml olive oil
  • 1 tbs soy milk

Ingredients for the topping

  • 200g passata, or to taste
  • 200g vegan cheese, or to taste
  • 1 x pack of Suzy Spoon's Peppernoni
  • Fresh herbs and spices (optional)

Instructions for the pizza dough

  • In a medium sized jug, combine water, yeast and sugar and set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Place flour and salt in a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, and mix for 15 seconds. Alternatively, place in a bowl and mix using a spatula.
  • Add olive oil, milk and yeast mixture to dry mixture and mix or knead for approximately 5 minutes, or until mixture comes together to form a soft dough.
  • Place in a well-oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius and set aside two pizza trays.
  • Remove dough from the bowl and place on a floured surface. 
  • Half the dough, and roll out each piece into a thin round shape.

Instructions for the topping

  • Spread passata onto each base, followed by cheese, then by Peppernoni.
  • Place pizzas onto trays and cook for approximately 30 minutes, or until cooked through. 
  • Serve hot or freeze until ready to eat!
