Utensils & Essentials
- 2 x pre-made dough balls
- 100g vegan mozzarella
- 200g Italian chopped tomato sauce
- 50g flour for dusting
- fresh basil leaves (rinse before use)
- Quorn vegan pepperoni 60g
- 30g red onion
- 2 tsp chilli flakes
We wrap our dough in cling film to keep it fresh. Use a little flour on your hands and the dough to separate it easily from the film.
How to make
Preheat your oven to its maximum temperature, recommended between 270 and 300°C. The hotter, the better!
Take the 2 pre-prepared dough balls and stretch each one into an individual base by pressing with your fingers and pushing the dough out to the edges. Keep rotating, then very carefully stretch the dough over the backs of your hands into a pizza base shape of approximately 11 to 12 inches in size. If you find this authentic Italian method difficult, do feel free to use a rolling pin.
When your pizza base is ready, spread the tomato sauce evenly over the top, leaving a border of dough at the edges for the crust.
Add the vegan mozzarella and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, then evenly scatter the toppings across the pizza.
Transfer to a pizza stone or baking tray with parchment paper and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. Please be aware, cook time will vary depending on oven temperature, so check the pizza frequently to avoid burning. If you are using an Ooni or equivalent oven, cook for approx 60 seconds.
Your perfectly prepared pizza is ready to enjoy!
