Vegan Veggie White Pizza
Vegan Veggie White Pizza is a great way to change up regular tomato pizzas.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 4 small pizzas
For the Dough:
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 1/4 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
- 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
For the Topping:
- 1 1/2 cups Vegan White Pizza Sauce
- 1/2 cup Caramelized Onion you can add more if you like, see the directions below for a link to Slow Cooker Caramelized Onion
- 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
- 1 red bell pepper fresh or 1 small jar roasted red bell peppers. Either way chop the roasted red bell peppers
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 15 ounces chickpeas can, each bean is cut in half (it doesn't take long, they are pretty big)
For the Crust:
In a small bowl add 2 Tablespoons yeast to 1-1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees)
Stir and set aside.
In a large bowl add the flour, maple syrup, olive oil, and the prepared yeast mixture.
Mix well and then turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead into a smooth, firm ball.
Oil a large bowl with a teaspoon of olive oil.
Add the dough to the bowl and turn the dough all around to get the oil on the whole ball.
Cover the bowl lightly with a clean towel and put it in a warm area to let it double in size, about 1 hour.
This is a good time to prepare the toppings - while the dough is rising.
When the rising time is done - turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 4 equal pieces.
These 4 balls will make 4 pizzas that are 8" to 10" in diameter. Depending how thick you like the crust. We like the thinner 10" pizza.
Cover them all, again, with a clean kitchen towel and let them rest for 10 minutes.
This is the point where you can freeze the balls or go ahead and make the four pizzas.
Prepare some of your toppings:
If you used the Slow Cooker Caramelized Onions they should have been made in advance. Alternatively you can caramelize onions in a skillet.
Roast the bell pepper according to these directions or use jarred roasted red bell peppers.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms, turn down the heat to medium and saute about 10 to 15 minutes.
One can (15 oz.) chickpeas, each bean is cut in half (it doesn't take long, they are pretty big)
