Who doesn’t love a good pizza? I always thought pizza is something that I had to order or buy somewhere. It always felt like this outlandish thing, that I didn’t even consider doing myself. You can imagine how surprised I was when I realised how extremely EASY it is to make my own pizza!
As always, it is entirely up to you whether you want to prepare this pizza with or without gluten. Vegan or with cheese! I actually made two different versions of this recipe. One with delicious vegan cheese. And one with mozzarella and feta! They both have their appeal. But I do confess – even though I am a feta addict, I loved the Vegan Cheese option one even more!
While I give these suggestions of what toppings you can add, the beauty of pizza is that you an top it with anything at all! So no need to stick my suggestions. Switch it up!
If you do go non-vegan, and choose cheese to top your pizza with, I recommend to use organic, if you can!
