For a scrumptious meal that’s ready in no time, these individual vegan pizzas really take the cake, or the pizza, as the case may be! The made-from-scratch crust takes minutes, then it’s a matter of slathering on pesto, a creamy white bean mash, and your choice of veggies. Note: The crust is made with white whole wheat flour, which is a variety of wheat that tastes similar to all-purpose flour but with all of the fiber of whole grain flour.

Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza Crust


Starring cornmeal and almond flour, and with baking powder used as a raising agent, this crispy pizza crust is gluten-free, and hassle-free, too. The slightly nutty flavor tastes great with just about anything. One reader writes, “We loved this crust! Great texture! Will definitely be making lots more of this!”


“The best pizza dough recipe I’ve found,” writes one reader. This wholesome 20-minute pizza crust uses white whole wheat flour, which is made from a wheat variety with a mild flavor and light color; it tastes similar to all-purpose flour, but has the fiber of whole grain flour.


In this oil-free vegan take on a traditional whole grain flour pizza crust, plant milk and date paste are used instead of dairy milk and processed sugar. Pro tip: This recipe takes some time, so make extra and freeze leftover crusts between squares of parchment paper in the freezer; that way, they’re ready for pizza night during the week. As one reader commented: “Delicious crust! Nice and crispy on the bottom. … The sponge method for the dough is time consuming, but definitely worth it!”
