Vegan Margherita Pizza



  • 1 pizza crust
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • ½ tomato, sliced thinly
  • A big handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • ½ package Daiya vegan cheese or ½ mozzarella ball (either sliced or shredded)

Making the pizza

Preheat the oven to 450F or as hot as it will go, and if you are using a pizza stone, put it in the oven as it preheats.

While the oven is preheating, prepare the crust (according to directions) and toppings: thinly slice the tomato, chop the basil (a couple rough cuts through the bunch to break up any large pieces is fine) and either shred or slice the cheese.

Once the crust is ready, spread a layer of tomato sauce over the pizza, then place the tomato slices on top, spacing them out evenly. Distribute the basil evenly, followed by the mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 450F for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is browned and bubbly. It takes longer than you think.
Slice and enjoy!
