Pizza is one of my biggest weaknesses. I adore the stuff and could honestly eat it every day if I could get away with it.

What’s great about this Vegetarian Pizza recipe:

  • It’s loaded with delicious vegetables
  • Quick and easy to make
  • Meal prep friendly – can be made in advance and frozen
  • Can be vegan – just substitute the cheese with vegan cheese and you’re good to go
  • A crowdpleaser – everyone adores this pizza
  • Ideal all year round

The best pizza crust

When it comes to pizza crust, I have a lot of opinions. The pizza crust needs to be just right and it can’t be too soggy or too hard. That’s why I always end up using one of my three favorite pizza dough recipes. No matter how many new recipes I try, I always return to these three, because they just make the pizza crust exactly how I like it.

Pizza dough cheat

If you’re not in the mood to make your own pizza dough (even though I have a quick 15 minute cheat pizza dough recipe) I got you covered. And I get it. We don’t always have the time or energy to cook from scratch and that’s completely okay.
Buying a ready made pizza dough at the grocery store is a completely viable option. It’s easy and makes cooking a breeze and they’re usually very tasty too.

Making the pizza Vegan

This pizza recipe is really easy to make vegan. Just substitute the cheese with vegan cheese and you’re all set. I like to use vegan shredded mozzarella cheese, but you can use your favorite vegan cheese. Just make sure it melts and gets that cheesy softness.

For the parmesan substitute you can either use vegan parmesan or just switch it out with a tablespoon nutritional yeast to give it that nice and cheesy taste.
