Pizzeria "Vegan Libre"

If you've made pizza dough and pizza sauce, it's time to put it all together into a complete, delicious vegan pizza! This particular variety is topped with green peppers, red onions, and casein-free soy cheese.

All you need to put this masterpiece together, assuming you've already made the dough and the sauce, is:

  • Vegan Libre Hearty Pizza Dough
  • 1 cup of Vegan Libre Homemade Vegan Pizza Sauce
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil, or all-natural vegetable-oil cooking spray
  • 1 large green pepper, cut however you like
  • 1/2 red onion, cut however you like
  • 3-4 oz casein free vegan mozzarella cheese alternative, shredded (I recommend Vegan Gourmet brand)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. While the oven is pre-heating, thoroughly grease a large non-stick baking sheet with either olive oil or cooking spray. If you've never done this before, use a round pizza pan as it will be easier to spread the dough than in a square one.

Take the ball of dough (after you've punched it down to release gasses), and place it in the center of the pan. Spread it out in every direction as far as it will go, then let it sit for 5 minutes. It probably won't reach the edges of the pan, and it will recede a bit after the 5 minutes are up, but that's okay. After the 5 minutes are up, continue working it toward the edges of the pan with your finger-tips. You will want to push dough from the middle as well to make sure the edges don't become too thin. If you accidentally rip the dough toward the edges, just fold over some more dough and keep pushing gently. Once the oven is done pre-heating, and you've spread the dough to the edges of the pan (and it stayed there pretty much), place the pan in the lower oven rack, and bake for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes pass, carefully remove the pan from the oven and set on the stove top. The crust will rise a bit during this part of the baking, so don't be alarmed. With a large spoon, carefully spread the entire cup of pizza sauce as evenly as possible on top of the crust. Use the back of the spoon to make it even once you've spooned it on. Return pan to oven, this time to the upper rack, and continue baking for 5 more minutes.

After 5 minutes pass, carefully remove the pan from the oven and set on the stove top. The sauce may be very hot, especially if it was at or above room temperature when you put it on, so be careful. Evenly spread the peppers and onions on top of the sauce. I prefer putting the toppings under the vegan cheese myself, because we will later broil the vegan cheese and we want as much direct heat as possible to melt it since it's casein free. On top of the peppers and onions, evenly spread the shredded vegan cheese over the entire pie. Make sure to get it as even as possible, since the casein-free cheese will not melt outward like it's dairy-based counterparts will. This is key to getting good coverage. Return pan to oven, back to the upper rack, and continue baking for 5 more minutes.

After the 5 minutes pass, you will want to broil the pizza on high (500 degrees or so) for up to 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts and begins to brown. You should do this with the oven rack as high as possible if it's not there already. Just watch it to make sure it does not burn. After 3-4 minutes or so, you will notice the cheese really melt, and then start to brown like ordinary dairy-based cheese would. This is what you want!

Once the cheese melts and browns as you like it, remove the pan from the oven and let it cool for 5-10 minutes or so. If you greased the pan well, the pie should not stick to it at all. Carefully remove it with a spatula and place on cutting board. You may want to tilt the pan with one hand and let it slide onto the cutting board to avoid tearing it with the spatula. Once on cutting board, slice it up however you want. This amount should feed 3-4 people, but your mileage may vary.

Try topping this with whatever vegetables/fungus you want (fungus meaning mushrooms of course). I just find that green peppers and onions are perfect, but that's just my taste. Sprinkle on some garlic powder or crushed red pepper for extra zest if you like.



Thank you people! I just Skyped my buddie that we would list their great very dazzling caterer businesses, in a posting. If you are looking to get a bistro in the greater NEW MEXICO location, these folks have been tremendous.

Certainly, naturally I must note the basic overview to this excellent piece was graciously supplied by Todd with Todd Duncan studios. Unanimously a fantastic advertising photographers. I always cherish a good proposal!
