Easy Vegan Pizza Crust


Ingredients:

  • 2-½ Cups Bread Or All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1-⅓ Cup Very Warm Tap Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Preparation


  1. Place 1 cup of flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl and mix to combine. Use bread flour if you have it, but I’ve used all-purpose many, many times and it’s fine.
  2. Add 1 1/3 cups very warm tap water and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Mix well. 
  3. Add additional flour, about another 1 1/2 cups until dough forms a loose ball. 
  4. Knead for 3-5 minutes. Cover and allow dough to rise for about an hour. Rising time is somewhat flexible I use it after 15-30 minutes if I was in a hurry. 
  5. Divide dough into four portions.
  6. Place each portion on a sprayed pizza pan or cookie sheet and pat out into about a 12-inch circle.
  7. If your dough is sticky, add a little extra flour. If it resists stretching, let it rest for a little bit. A minute or two can make a big difference.
  8. Preheat your oven to 425 F. Use a fork to poke holes all over the pizza dough. Bake for about 5-9 minutes until crust is set but make sure to remove it from the oven before it begins to brown too much.
  9. Add pizza sauce, and desired toppings. Bake for an additional 5-7 minutes. Remove from oven when its cooked to your liking
