The main difference between the traditional Pizza Margherita and the Vegan Margherita Pizza lies in the substitution of dairy-based ingredients with plant-based alternatives. Instead of using mozzarella cheese, we will be using vegan cheese made from nuts or soy. Additionally, we will replace any animal-based toppings with fresh vegetables or vegan alternatives.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a crispier crust, pre-bake the pizza crust for a few minutes before adding the toppings.
  • Experiment with different vegetable toppings such as mushrooms, bell peppers, or olives to add variety to your Vegan Margherita Pizza.
  • If you prefer a thinner crust, roll out the pizza dough to your desired thickness before adding the toppings.
  • To enhance the flavor, sprinkle some nutritional yeast or garlic powder over the pizza before baking.
  • If you don't have access to pre-made vegan pizza crust, you can make your own using a simple dough recipe made with flour, yeast, water, and olive oil.
