Whilst I've become quite adept at pizza making over the years it isn't the easiest food to make yourself and I've made a few blunders over the years. Here's some of my tips for making vegan pizza for yourself:
- Give yourself a good chunk of the afternoon to put it together - even basic pizza recipes can take an hour plus to prepare
- If you're looking for a thick crust add dried yeast, if you're looking for a thin crust leave this ingredient out
- Making the base is just like baking, which means you need exact measurements as it's a chemical reaction (much like a cake)
- Practice, practice, practice. Your first time making pizza shouldn't be when you have a dinner party looming; create your first few for a date with yourself
- Build your confidence by buying a few pre-made bases to practice choosing toppings first
- Use the correct flour for the job - plain flour works fine, but if you want it to be up a notch buy in some bread flour.
- Vegan pizza tastes better sans cheese. But that's maybe just my own opinion ;)
- Season it! This pizza was on the salty side (which I loved, but I realise my affection for salt - a la the salt vampire - is higher than most people's) but remember to throw some herbs on at least
