Recipe: Vegan Pizza with a Savory Veggie Broth Crust

2012-04-07 - Pizza with Veggie Broth Crust - 0013


So this is a kinda-sorta new recipe that Shane came up with last week. Using our standard fluffy white crust as a jumping-off point, he subbed in vegetable broth in place of water and added some additional spices to amp up the flavor. The result is a crispy, medium-thick crust that’s reminiscent of vegan vegetable or chicken noodle soup! Delicious and savory and not at all subtle. In fact, you may want to adjust the quantities of basil and garlic down, if an in-your-face crust isn’t your thing. Or add your own favorite spices for a different taste. May I suggest onion and parsley?


Savory Veggie Broth Crust


1 cup warm vegetable broth (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
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 1/2 tablespoons basil

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

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

(Pictured here is a beautiful vegan pizza pie topped with red sauce, mozzarella Daiya cheese, Lightlife pepperoni, and oregano. Simple, yet amazing!)


1. To prepare the dough: stir the vegetable broth, sugar and yeast together until dissolved. Add the olive oil and salt. Stir in the flour, garlic, and basil 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, spices, veggies, “meat,” cheese, 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!
