Yesterday we made vegetarian pizza and I would like to tell you the recipe for the dough and the tomato sauce in any case.
Servings: 4 small pizzas
For the dough:
- 400g spelt flour
- 1 pkg. dry yeast
- 220ml lukewarm water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch oregano
- 1 tablespoon coconut blossom sugar, honey or normal sugar
- 4 tbsp olive oil
For the sauce:
- 300ml tomato juice
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp coconut blossom syrup or coconut blossom sugar
- Oregano (Dried)
- Basil (Fresh)
- salt and pepper
- 1 pinch chilli
- 1/2 tsp olive oil
Also: Mozzarella, fresh vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, onions or mushrooms, pickled chillis, oregano (dried), basil and olives.
- For the dough, mix flour, sugar and salt well. Make a small hollow in the middle of the dough and add the dry yeast.
- Add water and olive oil to the dough and mix well.
- Now knead the dough well, place in a bowl, cover with a cloth and leave to rise for 10 minutes in a warm place.
- Knead again and leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
- Now divide into 4 parts, knead again and leave to rise in a warm place for another 30 minutes.
- For the sauce I boiled tomato juice with garlic, salt, pepper, coconut blossom sugar, herbs and olive oil for a short time and then spread it over the pizza dough.
- Knead the dough, roll it out (very thin) and bake for about 5 minutes at 200 degrees. Then spread some tomato sauce + topping and bake for another 5-8 minutes at 200 degrees.
- Remove from oven, sprinkle again with oregano and cover with basil, rocket salad or spinach leaves.

Our vegetarian pizza creation
We have chosen mushrooms, paprika, pickled chillis, olives and onion for the topping – which topping you use is of course up to you – you could add other fresh veggies like zucchini, fresh tomatoes, artichokes… If you want to make a vegan pizza, don’t use honey or normal cheese, you can get vegan cheese in the organic shop and partly in supermarkets (unfortunately I didn’t have any left).
Our pizza creation was really delicious, with a real stone oven it would most likely have become the best pizza in the world! Does any of you have such a stone oven or such a device with which you can prepare pizza? Which ingredients should not be missing on your pizza?
This recipe is of course not a very healthy dish, but still better than a bought pizza from the supermarket, where you don’t know half of the ingredients and you get a lot of flavor enhancers, preservatives and colorings. Moreover, the preparation is really fun – cooking something together can be really funny and especially in combination with some wine and good music.
