Cheats Gluten Free Vegan Pizza

When life gets hectic, food can either be the first or last thing on your mind. For me I want something tasty, but with minimal effort.

Pizza is a crowd pleaser, I have yet to meet someone who tells me they don’t enjoy a pizza. Pizza is also one of the things that people are concerned about when they hear you are a vegan or consider a vegan diet themselves, but fear not. There’s plenty of vegan pizza to go around! And what’s more this recipe is so healthy you can enjoy a pizza to yourself 😉

This recipe is for a simple, gluten free, vegan pizza that’s packed with delicious veggies, and you can make it in 40  minutes! The great thing about pizza is that the toppings can be modified to suit everyones taste, simple!

Ingredients

150g gluten free self raising flour (or any flour of choice really)

Method

Preheat your oven to Gas 6/200*C

Mix the ingredients for the base in a bowl, until they form a ball of dough, add more flour if needed

Knead the dough lightly on a floured surface for 1 minute, then place onto a lined baking tray

Flatten the dough with your hands to form a flat shape (circle/oval/square) then roll out until even all over about 1cm thick (I used a glass for rolling)

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake at Gas 6/200*C for 15 minutes, until crispy

Meanwhile, mix the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and set aside

Prep the toppings, slicing thinly

After 15 minutes take the base from the oven, cover with sauce and vegetables and bake for a further 20 minutes until all the vegetables are lightly charred and cooked through.

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
