So you’re vegan? Amazing! What a great step toward improving animal welfare, the planet, and your own health.
But, it’s not all roses (or ‘rabbit food’). Have you ever found yourself eyeing up your meat-eating friend’s cheese-laden pizza slice? There’s nothing worse than food envy, but takeaway options are often limited for vegans.
But don’t fear, you don’t have to miss out when it comes to pizza.
Follow our five steps to make sure your vegan pizza order is so indulgent, all your friends will want a slice!
1. Sauce Selection: It’s Got to be Red
First, before you get too excited about pizza toppings, you need to choose a sauce. Of course, there’s the classic tomato base found on most pizzas, but let’s branch out a bit.
At Proper Pizza, our red sauce is also infused with rich herb flavors in a smooth, passata-style paste that provides the perfect base for all your favorite vegan toppings. If you’re not into red sauce, try pesto or garlic oil for something different.
2. Choose a Vegan Cheese
If you’re ordering a vegan pizza, finding somewhere that does an awesome vegan cheese is vital. Because let’s be honest, cheese is what makes a pizza great.
Vegan products have come on leaps and bounds in the last few years and now you can order a vegan, shredded mozzarella. A great vegan mozzarella will melt quickly and easily, adding great texture and flavor to your healthy pizza!
3. Add Flavour With Mushrooms
When it comes to vegan pizza toppings, mushrooms are where it’s at. Their meaty texture adds substance, sustenance, and flavor that cannot be achieved with just salad vegetables.
Choose mushrooms for all the flavor of a meat pizza without the meat. But, if you’re ordering mushrooms, make sure to order from somewhere that prides itself on using high-quality, fresh ingredients for maximum flavor!
4. Introduce Spice With Jalapenos
Who ever said vegan pizzas had to be boring? If you fancy yourself some heat, make sure to add jalapenos for a crunchy kick! Lightly roasted jalapenos will spice up that pizza, making it far more adventurous than a basic, peppery pepperoni pizza.
5. Finish With a Touch of Basil
Without the dominating meaty flavors on your pizza, it’s the perfect time to finish your pizza with fresh basil. Add this herb to complement your carefully selected sauces, cheese, and toppings.
It may seem simple, but you won’t regret adding basil; this aromatic herb is a perfectly balanced mix between sweet and savory. Basil is a must-have topping for any flavorsome, vegan pizza.
