BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

The best vegan pizza I have ever had! but don’t take my word for it. Try it for yourself!

Getting a good vegan pizza recipe is hard work. There are so many ways to make them that vary on the healthy scale. This one in particular would fall somewhere in between.

I have tried making healthy pizzas but I find myself being rather traditional and wanting to recreate the pizza I once had. Meaning this recipe is not gluten free as most of my other recipes are. That being said, I will be working on developing a gf base in the near future. So bare with me.

If your a fan of bbq, cauliflower and pizza then this is sure the pizza for you! I have always received great feedback from non vegans so a great way to please people from both sides. Making it perfect for parties and gatherings.

The toppings here are completely optional. So with my pizza base recipe and imagination you could create any pizza in the world. Let this recipe inspire you! and make sure to tag homemadevegan in any shots you get of your vegan pizza’s!

I would also recommend that you make sure to find a Vegan Cheese that you can melt to avoid disappointment. As my blog is international and I’m based in the UK any recommendations that I make wouldn’t benefit everyone so I won’t.

If your not sure on the best alternatives near you. Then there are lots of amazing vegan support groups on Facebook. Find a local one and i’m positive someone will be able to help out 🙂

Ingredients

Dough (makes 2 large or 4 small)

  • 3 cups Organic plain flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp Instant dried yeast
  • 1 tbs Organic Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic granules opt

Base

  • 2 tbs Tomato Puree or BBQ sauce
  • 1 tbs Fresh Basil

Toppings

  • 2 tbs BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 Small Cauliflower
  • 1 Red or white onion
  • 50 g Mushrooms
  • 1 Red pepper
  • 50 g Sweetcorn
  • handful of Vegan mozzerella cheese

Instructions

Dough

  1. Add the yeast to 1 cup of warm water to activate it. Sit it aside for 5 mins. 

  2. In a mixing bowl add the flour with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the middle of the flour then add the olive oil.

  3. Slowly start adding the liquid to the flour, folding it in until all is mixed together. Knead the dough to ensure it has all combined properly. 

  4. Cover the dough in some olive oil (this will prevent it drying out) then put back into a bowl and cover with a tea towel. Leave for up to 1 hour in a warm area of your kitchen (This dough can be used straight away if you don’t have time, it just won’t raise as well).

  5. When the dough is ready, roll it out on a floured surface. This dough will produce 2 large pizza bases or 4 small ones. Ensure to roll it out really thin if your wanting a thinner crust.

  1. In a small sauce pan add chopped cauliflower with a tbs water. Fry for 2 mins on medium heat. Add 2-3 tbs bbq sauce and simmer until sauce has thickened and cauliflower has cooked (3-4mins).

  2. Preheat oven to 190c 

  3. Spread 2-3 TBS tomato puree or bbq sauce over the pizza base. Add fresh herbs (basil). Then cover in your toppings of choice.
