Two Easy Vegan Pizza Recipes (gluten free option)

One of the hardest things for me to give up when I went dairy-free was pizza. To this day it has remained a challenge to me, but honestly the clouds have parted as I have found very tasty alternatives to traditional cheesy pizza. Let me show you two versions of vegan pizza I have made!

Version one: Veggie pizza with cauliflower crust

You will need: frozen cauliflower pizza crust (I like Trader Joe’s), tomato pizza sauce, white onions, broccoli, mushrooms, tons of garlic

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 °F
  2. Slice onions into slivers, wash mushrooms, chop stems off broccoli, and chop up your garlic
  3. Start sautéeing your onions + mushrooms, and then throw in the broccoli with a little water halfway through — about 6-7 minutes total. After done cooking, place in a bowl on the side
  4. Cover your pizza crust with the tomato paste or sauce, adding the sautéed vegetables on top in desired layout
  5. If you’re a garlic-lover like I am, skip sauteeing the garlic and add on before pizza goes in the oven to keep its strong flavor. Below is a picture of mounds of garlic I found at the farmers market!! So tempting…IMG_8034
  6. Place pizza on a baking sheet and bake in oven for about 20 minutes.
  7. Take your pizza out of the oven, slice as desired, and serve hot with a side salad. Enjoy and tell me what you think!

Version two: Butternut squash and corn pizza

You will need: butternut squash, corn, tomato sauce, garlic, preferable pizza spices

  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F
  2. Cover butternut squash with olive oil and roast for 20 minutes in the oven, shaking occassionally for even distribution
  3. Remove squash from oven and raise temperature to 450 °F
  4. Cover pizza crust (gluten free or regular) with pizza sauce, corn, butternut squash, and spices
  5. Bake for around 15-20 minutes or until desired crispiness is achieved
  6. Enjoy! I love this pizza because it’s something new on the taste buds. Don’t be afraid just because it isn’t a traditional pizza! It is so tasty, has a fair amount of nutrients and fiber, and will keep you full for a while.
