Vegan Pizza Crust Recipe (No Knead!)
A good vegan pizza crust recipe can be hard to find, let alone make. Once you find an easy one, you end up kneading the dough by hand for 12 hours before rising for another week! I want pizza today, dammit! Fortunately, this dough is insanely easy to make! Simply toss the ingredients into a Kitchenaid and mix on medium-high for a good 10 minutes. Voilà! The dough will be kneaded perfectly by the 10 minute mark, and will start to ball together. Simply let rise and top however you please! We often make vegan “meat-lovers”, cheeze, and veggie styled pies. The one pictured in this recipe includes tomato sauce, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and daiya mozzarella.
Let the machine do all the hard work! No need to spend hours kneading, this Vegan Pizza Crust Recipe is as easy as they come.
The hardest part about making this dough is waiting two hours for it to rise.
Start by throwing (or gently place, if that’s more your style) the ingredients in a kitchenaid, ramp up to medium-high and let it “knead” for about 10 minutes. I won’t look like much, but right towards the end it should ball-up nicely onto the hook. The intense “kneading” process works the gluten around nicely, allowing it to stretch and create long, chewy strands (the real secret to this vegan pizza crust recipe). If you don’t have gluten on hand, either omit, or replace the flours with bread flour. I have made it with exclusively all-purpose, but the chew is definitely worth the extra effort.
