We do either tortilla pizzas, or use the following crust recipe:
1 pckg dry yeast, 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water, 3 cups flour (I usually mix different types of flour), 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp olive oil
Proof the yeast in 1/2 cup water for 10 min. Add flour, salt, oil, water. Mix and knead 10 min (I usually do this part in electric mixer). Put dough in oiled bowl, cover and put in warm place until doubles in size (2 hours is ideal for flavor and texture).
Dough can be used to make 4 small pizzas. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Shape dough into pizzas, brush with olive oil, add toppings and put in oven. I usually set my timer for 12 min, and go from there until they look done.
Also, if you haven't tried Daiya cheese yet, it's awesome!
No need to miss pizza lovely - there are two on my blog. One thin crust and one 10min thick crust. Top it with whatever you like and personally I just leave off the 'cheese' now because I prefer it that way. I often have pizza when I'm out - most restaurants are very accommodating. This is very topical actually as there is a whole discussion on The Vegan Society facebook page at the moment - take a look. Pizza Express are having a recipe comp and they will put the winning entry on their menu - many vegans are submitting recipes:)
A super quick pizza recipe is to double up two tortillas, spread any kind of tomato sauce on it (i use passata) and then add whatever you like - I personally like onion, pepper and parsley. Bake on an upturned pre-heated baking sheet and bake for 10mins. Et voila!
Also, there are many places in Italy (and France I'm told) that serve pizza without cheese - it is not a requirement for a delicious pizza.
Pizza, pizza! xx
