Vegan Pepperoni Pizza - Thin base

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 8th of May 2023

Up until now, I have never been a great fan of thin pizza bases.  However, this one is just so easy and tastes great! It needs few ingredients and no special expertise.

Notes

  • I used Applewood vegan cheese, but you can use any vegan cheese you like.  I was, however, very impressed with how the applewood cheese alternative melted.
  • Furthermore, I used Wicked Kitchen pepper-no-roni slices, but you can use any vegan pepperoni.
     

Makes 2 × 25 cm/10 inch pizzas 

Time – 30 minutes.

 

Ingredients for the base

  • 350 g plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 172 ml water 

For tomato sauce

  • Tomato x 1
  • Tomato paste x 2 tbsp
  • Tomato pesto x 2 tsp
  • Tomato chutney x 1 tbsp
  • Garlic cloves x 3
  • Mixed Italian herbs x 1 tsp

For toppings 

  • Applewood vegan cheese x enough to lightly cover the tomato sauce
  • Vegan pepperoni a few slices you decide!
  • Onion x a few thin slices
  • Bell pepper x a few thin slices
  • Mushroom x 1
 

Method

  • Heat the oven to 180C fan.
  • Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl
  • Add 1 tbsp oil and the water and stir until it comes together.  If to dry, add more water.  You are looking for something that is soft.  If it is sticky, add a little more flour. 
  • Knead on a surface for 3-4 mins.  Roll into 2 balls, then flatten them with your hand and roll out to about 25 cm in diameter.  
  • Add the toppings and bake at 180 C for 15 minutes on the low middle shelf.
Roll out to about 25 cm/10 inches in diameter.

Add the tomato sauce.

Add the toppings.

Results 

This turned out better than I expected. It was juice and delicious!  Wicked Kitchen did a great job of the vegan pepperoni.
