Homemade Vegan Oil Free Pizza Dough

  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes one 12-inch pizza

Here is your go-to recipe for an easy-to-work-with vegan pizza dough that makes tender and tasty oil-free crust. Use this super-quick crust as a base for our Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potato, and Balsamic Pizza or for any of your plant-based pizza creations. Simply roll dough into a 12-inch circle, brush with a teaspoon of plant milk, bake for eight minutes, add your toppings of choice, and continue baking until crust is golden and crisp. 


  • 1¾ to 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1½ teaspoons fast-rising active dry yeast
  • ¾ teaspoon pure cane sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt


  1. In a medium bowl stir together 1¾ cups of the flour, the yeast, sugar, and salt. Stir in 1 cup warm water (120°F to 130°F) until combined.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining ¼ cup flour to make a dough that is smooth and elastic (2 to 3 minutes). Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Use as directed in recipes. To make ahead, cover and chill up to 4 hours.
