For this easy vegan pizza recipe, I have to give a special shout out to Colive Olive Oil. They kindly gifted me* their Luxury Edition Olive Oil and I can honestly say that the taste was second to none. This is by far the most flavoursome olive oil I have tasted (and being a Greek- I’ve tasted a lot!).

What’s more is that Colive Oil has a beautiful background story fuelling the company’s social mission (which you can read more about here). But in summary, Colive is based on the notion that they aim for humanity to Co-Live in harmony; their vision is to connect and build a global community through the love of quality ingredients. What’s more is that they donate 10% profits s to create positive social change, so you help build a better future with every bottle.

Admittedly, Colive Olive oil is priced higher than your average bottle, but if your budget does allow and you’re interested in trying out some seriously top quality oil that does good for the community too, then I’d definitely recommend trying it out.

This easy vegan pizza recipe is a great dinner option especially for when you have guests over as you can customise each pizza with different toppings! If you need some inspo with flavour combos, I’ve made my top suggestions below:
  • Autumnal: Tomato base, roasted squash, caramelised onions, vegan feta cheese alternative, wilted spinach
  • Fresh and green: Pesto base, chopped chargrilled artichoke, fresh sliced tomatoes, vegan cheese, chopped avo/balsamic vinegar glaze (topped once cooked)
  • Comforting: Tomato base, vegan sausage, vegan cheddar alternative, sliced red onion, bbq sauce drizzled on top
  • Mediterranean: Tomato base, sliced courgette, mushrooms, vegan mozzarella alternative, basil, vegan pesto dotted on top (once cooked)
*Whilst Colive Olive Oil was gifted to me, all opinions are 100% genuine and my own.

  • 4 basil leaves
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil (I used Colive Olive oil)

Topping suggestions

Instructions

For the dough

  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, yeast and sugar. Add the salt and pepper.

  2. Gradually mix in the water to make a soft (but not sticky) dough.

  3. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic

  4. Leave the pizza dough to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes

  5. Cut the dough into two pieces and roll each one into a rough circle (about 30cm). Put them on a pizza pan (ideal) or ungreased baking trays.

For the tomato sauce

  1. Put all the tomato sauce ingredients in a food processor/blender

  2. Once blended, lightly heat it in a saucepan, set aside

To assemble

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F)

  2. Spread each circle dough base with the tomato sauce (leave about 1cm from the edge)

  3. Evenly add the mushrooms, courgette rings, peppers, asparagus spears and olive over the top.

  4. Sprinkle over the vegan cheese and add a generous drizzle of good quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I used Colive Olive Oil)

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until the edges are golden and the cheese has melted

  6. Once cooked dot round the smashed avocado for some extra creaminess
