Meatless Monday: Vegan Pizza

This is my second #MeatlessMonday post. Pizza is something practically anyone can make, even vegan pizza, even me! You just need patience with the crust and creativity for combining toppings.

Gooey leftover homemade vegan pizza. Yum!
 You have two options for delicious crust.
  1. Make your own with yeast. (Quick and easy, and popular, pizza crust recipe.)
  2. Buy a bag of pizza dough at the supermarket. You can find it in the refrigerator and freezer section. There's usually a multigrain and white flour option. I recommend leaving it out of the fridge a few hours before you work with it.
Homemade or from the market, you've got to make the dough into a crust somehow. Watch this video "How to Toss Pizza Dough, and Why You Should" from CHOW featuring World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani.

Now, what are you going to bake it on? Three options.
  1. Do you wanna make deep dish style pizza:? Use a cast-iron skillet. Check out what Emma did at A Beautiful Mess.
  2. Are you fancy? Then you probably have a pizza stone. (I wanna eat at your house!) If you're thinking about getting fancy, this HowCast video explains how a pizza stone can help distribute heat evenly and make for a crispy crust.
  3. Are you just a regular person who bakes occasionally? Then you probably have a cookie sheet. Put your pizza dough on that.
Whatever you do, I recommend baking the dough a little bit before putting on sauce and toppings then baking it some more. What kind of stuff goes on a vegan homemade pizza? Whatever you like. That's the magic of homemade! Here's what I like:
