  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour + more to dust the dough and surfaces
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil + more to coat the dough
  • 3/4 cup water


  • Combine the flour, instant yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and water. Mix and knead by hand until it's a soft, non-sticky dough or put all the ingredients in a  kitchen machine and let the machine knead the dough for you. Finetune the dough: If it's too sticky, add more flour. If it's too crumbly, add more water.
  • Coat the ball of dough in a drizzle of olive oil. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let the dough rise until it has doubled in size (2-3 hours depending on the room temperature). 
  • Preheat the oven to 480°F/250°C. 
  • Divide the dough into two equal parts. Carefully roll it out on a lightly floured parchment paper into two pizza crusts (don't use too much pressure). You can stretch it a bit with your hands until it has the right shape. 
  • Transfer the crust on the parchment paper onto a baking tray. Top the pizza dough with tomato sauce, vegan cheese, and your favorite toppings!
  • Bake the pizza for 10-15 minutes (depending on how many toppings you add) until the crust is golden and slightly crispy. Enjoy!
