Preeti Say Cheese Pizza – is all dairy free and vegan friendly. The kids wanted to eat pizza and I had pre-made dough in the house in the fridge. So here’s what I whipped up real quickly and the kids loved it…..one slice was not enough.

Here is what’s in it:

  • Pizza Dough
    • 1 1/3 Cups of Warm Water
    • 2 Teaspoons of Sugar
    • 2 Teaspoons of Dry Yeast
    • 1 Tablespoon of Salt
    • 2 Tablespoons of Light Olive Oil
    • 4 Cups of Flour
  • Pizza Sauce
    • 1 Teaspoon of Light Olive Oil
    • 20 ounces of Organic Canned Tomato Sauce
    • 1 Teaspoon of Parsley
    • 2 Garlic Cloves – Minced
    • 1/2 Teaspoon of Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Cup of Daiya Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup of Daiya Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon of Crushed Pepper Flakes
  • More Parsley for garnishing

How to make it:

Making it was easy peasy because I had sauce and dough already made and refrigerated but I’ll show you how I made each  ingredients.

  • Pizza Dough – this took the longest to make because of the waiting time but I’ll show you a shortcut. (Sorry I didn’t picture this, it was a trial run for me and it was super messy, lol)
    • In a medium size bowl, add warm water, sugar and dry yeast. Stir lightly until yeast activates (you will see a form residue on top of the water). Then add the salt and olive oil.
    • Then gradually stir in the flour to the yeast mixture and mix till it become thick. When it becomes thick, take the dough out from the bowl and knead with your hands on a clean floured surface or utilize kitchen mixer with hook.
    • If you are kneading by hand, knead dough thoroughly by gathering in a pile and pressing it together, press the heel of your palms firmly into the dough and push back and forth-Do  this repeatedly until the dough is soft to the touch and stretchy.
    • Then gather up the dough into a ball and place in bowl and let it sit at room temperature for 1 hour  or refrigerate for 5 hours- you can skip this process by putting the dough in an oven safe bowl, covered with a wet drop cloth and placing in the oven at 300ºF for 20 minutes so that the dough can rise.
  • Pizza Sauce – Easier to make than the dough
    • In a saucepan, over medium heat, add olive oil, tomato sauce, parsley, garlic and salt. Stir sauce thorough and let it simmer for about 1 hour. Then let it cool in the refrigerator for a few hours. This can also be stored in the freezer in Jars for up to 12 months.
  • Now on to making the pizza
    • Take pizza dough out and flatten with the heel of your palm or a rolling pin. Keep the dough at least 1 to 2 inches thick.
    • Transfer flattened pizza dough to non stick pizza pan and then begin to spread pizza sauce on the dough evenly using a small soup ladle spoon. The more generous you are with the sauce, the more saucy your pizza would be.
    • Preheat Oven to 375ºF
    • Then spread the daiya cheeses all over the pizza dough, the more cheese you put, the cheesier the pizza, then sprinkle on some parsley just for fun.
    • Place pizza in the oven and bake for 15 Minutes or until dough becomes golden brown and cheeses are melted.
    • Serve and Enjoy
