Recipe Round-Up: Vegan Pizza

Vegan Pizza is another great book from Julie Hasson. The first three chapters are full of easy doughs, tasty pizza sauces and meaty-style toppings, before moving on to the pizzas.

An important point to mention is that all these pizzas has stood up to my ultimate pizza test: they all taste great cold straight from the fridge the next day! (Actually, I almost like cold leftover pizza more than fresh hot pizza....).

Tomato-Basil Pizza: This is a simple classic pizza, which is sort of more of a snack pizza than a meal pizza. It is made up of pizza base, Tomato-Garlic Sauce, mozzarella and fresh basil. I went for a side by side cheese comparison - Daiya on the left and Cheezly on the right.

Valentine's Pizza: Or not valentine, I made this to enjoy all on my own sometime far away from February. The layers are pizza base, sun-dried, tomato and arugula pesto, mozzarella and tomatoes. There was also meant to be red capsicum on it but no way would I ruin a perfectly good dinner with capsicum!

Corn, Pesto, Zucchini and Tomato Pizza: A fun summer flavours pizza made up of dough, pesto (I cheated and used a bottled one), mozzarella, zucchini, tomato and corn.

Mushroom, Broccoli, and Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza: This is pretty self-explanatory, though it also has some tomato-garlic sauce, mozzarella and toasted pine nuts as well.

Pineapple and Jalapeno Pizza: I love pineapple on pizza, and I will not apologise! This is like a Hawaiian pizza, with some delicious sweet and smoky soy curls in place of ham. To be honest next time I would leave off the jalapenos and add sliced black olives, because I like my Hawaiian pizzas trashy.

Smoky Wild Mushroom and Potato Pizza: This pizza has a great smoky white cheese sauce on the base, which I topped with the optional mozzarella for maximum cheese. Red potatoes and sliced shiitake mushrooms make up the rest. I skipped the truffle oil garnish.

Sweet Potato and Kale Pizza: Some more smoky white cheese sauce in the mix here, along with baby kale leaves and sweet potatoes. Slice more sweet potatoes that you think you will need as it shrinks down quite a bit.

Broccoli and Cheddar Pizza: Broccoli and cheese is a classic combination, but this time it is on a pizza. A combination of an amazing cashew cheddar cheese sauce and grated cheddar cheese make this super cheddary.

Chili Mac Pizza: This says to use 10oz cooked macaroni so I started with 8oz uncooked, though I didn't use it all on the pizza. The macaroni is mixed with a cashew creamy cheese sauce. I used a tin of Amy chili here that I had kicking around in the cupboard.

Cowboy Pizza: BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, sweet and smoky soy curls, broccoli, jalapenos and coriander make for a pretty tasty pizza.

Basket full of kittens


What is better than a pizza party? A basket full of kittens! These are three girls available for adoption at the moment. Mia is the sassy tortie at the front, with Polly next to her, and sweet little Precious peeking over from behind. Love these girls!

  1. So much yummy pizza! I have put in a request for this book from the library. My husband has just decided to try being gluten free for a while ( :( - I love my gluten!) so I hope there is a gf crust recipe.

  2. Now I feel like a pizza wimp! All I ever top my pizzas with is tomato-based sauce, cheese, and if I'm feeling adventurous some sort of vegan pepperoni or sausage. Mushrooms if I'm feeling extra daring.

    Mr. Wing-It was sitting next to me and he nodded in agreement when he read the bit about eating cold pizza. He likes fresh hot pizza, but he might like cold pizza even more!

    A basket full of kittehs! I wish I could take all three!

  5. Mmm, pizza. I've got the book and use the easy base recipe all the time. After seeing your pictures I must try out more of the topping ideas.

  6. Eeek! Mac and cheese pizza! This is one of the cookbooks on my must buy when I have a house / oven again list because everything looks soooo good. Also, as someone who is actually allergic to capsicum I totally think it should be banned!
