Ina is the talented gal behind Lifestyle Blog, a mother of one, and a nature lover. She posts healthy, vegetarian recipes on her blog, and she was sweet enough to share one of them with us. She says it’s the world’s tastiest vegan pizza… and I think she may be right!

Vegan Pizza Recipe - Kittenhood

When Daria first asked me to write a guest post for her, I was totally in awe, mainly because I love her style and her ideas, and because I’ve never had a guest post invitation until now. So I gladly accepted without even knowing what to prepare. I really had no idea! Right now I like to cook mainly from cookbooks, because I feel like I have no time and inspiration (I have a toddler to raise). But last week I broke the rules and I’ve made the most delicious vegan Bolognese sauce ever! I was amazed to see that my inspiration didn’t leave me forever 🙂 and I could come up with such a wonderful recipe. It was so good, I thought it would be a great idea to share the recipe that became my favorite lately, something I like to call “World’s Tastiest Vegan Pizza”! And yes, the secret ingredient for this delicious dish is my vegan Bolognese sauce! 

This pizza is packed with protein, fibers and iron, thanks to the textured soy, tofu and whole wheat flour. While it’s a vegan pizza, the taste is amazing. You will be surprised to see how good it is!

  2. Put the textured soy flakes in a bowl, cover with 1 cup hot water and let it sit for 20 minutes.

  5. When the vegetables have absorbed the enitre quantity of water, add the tomatoes and the tomato juice and cook on low heat for about 5-7 minutes. Stir constantly.

Vegan Whole Wheat Pizza Dough | Kittenhood

Vegan Pizza Dough
  1. 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  2. 1 package (7 grams) dry yeast
  3. 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup (or honey, sugar)
  4. 1/2 teaspoon Himalyan salt
  5. about 1/3 cup warm water
  1. Combine yeast, maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of flour and 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside in a warm place so the yeast can rise and double its volume.
  2. In a bowl mix the flour, the yeast and water (notice that you may need to increase or descrease the quantity of water depending on the brand of flour you're using). Knead the dough until it becomes soft and elastic.
  3. Put the dough in an oiled bowl and let it rise in a warm place for an hour.

Vegan Pizza Toppings - Kittenhood

World’s Tastiest Vegan Pizza

  1. Turn the oven to 425 degrees F (220 Celsius). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a floured surface, knead the risen dough a few times. Using your hands (not a rolling-pin! We want a tasty, elastic dough), flatten the dough and give it the traditional pizza shape. Don’t worry if you won’t be able to make a perfect rounded pizza! It looks even prettier when it’s rustic!
  3. Put the dough on the baking sheet. Top the dough with vegan Bolognese sauce and the toppings you prefer. I used corn, kalamata olives, pepper and cauliflower, but feel free to add grilled zucchini or eggplant, mushrooms, peas etc. 
  4. Bake the pizza for about ten minutes.
  5. I like to crumble some smoked tofu and add some fresh rucola on top after it’s done.
  6. Enjoy it! It’s delicious!
