Recipe: Fluffy White Pizza Crust, DIY Vegan Styley

Though we like to branch out and experiment with different types of flour and such, inevitably we come back to this particular pizza dough recipe. It’s pretty basic, but easy to liven up with extra spices and seasonings. In fact, both of our Vegan Pizza Day pies were variations on this theme (mine, tomato lover’s; Shane’s, red hot). Anyhow, it’s a recipe that’s never failed us – and we hope it’ll bring you good luck, too.

Hint: the longer you let the dough rise, the bigger and fluffier the crust. Yum!

 
Fluffy White Pizza Crust

Ingredients

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F / 45 degrees C)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/4 tablespoons active dry yeast
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Optional: spices to taste (e.g., cumin, basil, cayenne pepper, thyme, oregano, red pepper, tomato powder, chili powder, ground flax seeds, and/or nutritional yeast, to name a few)

Cornmeal or cooking spray with which to coat the pizza stone or pizza pan

The toppings of your choice: red sauce, nondairy cheese, vegan meats, nuts, seeds, fruits and/or veggies

Directions

1. To prepare the dough: stir the water, sugar and yeast together until dissolved. Add the olive oil and salt, as well as any extra spices or seasonings. Stir in the flour until blended. Form the dough into a small ball and let rest in large bowl, covered loosely with a towel, anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.

2. When you’re ready to assemble and bake your pizza, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

3. As the oven’s heating, spread a dusting of cornmeal onto your pizza stone (or lightly coat your pizza pan with cooking spray). Using fingers dipped in olive oil (optional), pat the dough onto the stone, spreading it out evenly.

4. When you’re done shaping the dough, add your toppings: sauce, veggies, “meat,” cheese, fruit, nuts, etc.

5. Bake at 425 degrees, for between 15 and 20 minutes for a single pizza, or 30 minutes for two pizzas.

6. Get your nom on!
