Pizza Vegana | The Italian Bar Pizza

Pizza Vegana | The Italian Bar Pizza

For World Vegetarian Day on the 1st October I teamed up with Dimmi to bring you a great list of vegetarian and vegan eats across Sydney. And now, from one of the amazing listed establishments, The Italian Bar Pizza in Willoughby has shared their Vegan Pizza recipe with us!

I made this recipe at home the other day for my girls... All I can say is YUM. Trust me, making the dough perfectly is what makes a great pizza (it's all about that base), a little more ground work, but the results will have you thinking that you are a full blown Italian chef. The recipe is packed with flavour and can very easily be customised to your include your favourite toppings and finishes.


Yields Four Delicious Pizzas

Ingredients

Pizza base

500 ml of filtered water at room temperature

1100g plain flour 

50g salt

10ml honey or agave (if vegan)

8g fresh yeast or 12g dry yeast

Toppings

400g tomato paste 

320g notzarella soy cheese

320g button mushrooms

320g of red roasted capsicum 

240g sliced zucchini 

120g sliced olives

Steps

Turn oven up to 200c

Add 60ml warm water, the yeast and honey to a mixing bowl. The yeast will activate and start to bubble 

Add the remaining water and salt to the yeast mixture 

Add half of the wet mixture and the flour to a separate bowl and stir until you get a dough like consistency 

Let the dough rest for one hour then keep it in the fridge for 24 hours

After 24 hours take the dough out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature 

From the dough form four evenly sized dough balls

Use a rolling pin to roll out each ball into a small round circle ...

Top each pizza base with 100g tomato paste followed by 80g of notzarella soy cheese, 80g of button mushrooms, 80g of red roasted capsicum, 60g of sliced zucchini and 30g of sliced olives 

Repeat rolling out and topping the remaining bases 

Cook in oven for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden

Remove from the oven and garnish with a generous pinch of nutritional yeast
