Basic Vegan Pizza Dough

A very basic crispy Vegan Pizza Dough.

Tips

  • It is important to keep your hands dry while kneading the dough to prevent sticking. I will dust my hands with flour before kneading.
  • A dusting of cornmeal can help keep the pizza dough from sticking to the pan while baking.
  • Taking a fork and poking the rolled out crust about every inch will prevent any air bubbles while cooking

Ingredients

1 ½ cups all purpose flour
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp active dried yeast
½ cup lukewarm water (may require more if dry)
1 tbsp olive oil

Directions

Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the yeast.

Knead the dough for ten minutes on a lightly floured surface, until it is smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise 1 hour or until double in bulk.

Knock back the dough. Knead again for 2-3 minutes and roll out into the desired shape, and placed on a greased baking sheet. Push up the edges to make a rim. The dough is now ready for toppings. Bake according to your recipe, or bake at 425F for 20 minutes to 30 minutes.
