Easy Gluten-free Vegan Pizza made with a basic vegan & gluten-free dough and topped with vegan cheese, delicious pesto, spinach and mushrooms.
You are going to love this vegan pizza! The dough is super easy to make, almost no kneading is required and all you need is 5 basic ingredients. Oh and the best part is that it’s ready to bake in 20 minutes.
This pizza crust is both vegan and gluten-free. It is a very forgiving crust and pairs really well with sautéed veggies too. It is also freezer friendly, which makes it perfect for those lazy Friday nights. Just needs to be thawed in the fridge overnight before you use it.
How to make the pesto sauce
Pesto sauce is one of the easiest things to make. You just need a hand blender or a food processor. A hand blender is what I use most of the time since my food processor is quite big.
If you used to buy store-bought pesto, you will soon realize that homemade pesto is much more tasty, fresh and flavourful than the store-bought pesto. I always have a jar of it in the fridge, it’s a life saver!
- In a blender or food processor, pulse the dry ingredients until smooth and combined.
- Then, add the olive oil, lemon juice and water. Extra-virgin olive oil adds richness and a slightly deeper flavor.
- Puree until the mixture is smooth and well mixed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl or cup if needed.
- If you like a thinner pesto you can add a little more olive oil or water.
