Once you have tried this vegan pizza dough recipe, you’ll never try another

Is dough for pizza from a plant? Absolutely! pizza dough is made like bread, from Strong bread flour (high in gluten), fine semolina (makes the dough crispy), salt, olive oil and water.

In a jug, mix 14gm of dried yeast (2x7gm packets) into 650ml of slightly lukewarm water (not too hot otherwise the yeast will not. work) and leave for a few minutes to activate.

Mix the strong bread flour and semolina flour together and make a well in the middle.

Pour the Olive oil and the yeast water into the well. Using a wooden spoon, bring the flour in gradually from the sides and mix it into the liquid. Keep mixing, turning the bowl and drawing the flour in, and when it all starts to come together, turn it out onto a floured surface and work the rest of the flour in with your hands.

Knead for 10 mins or until you have a smooth, springy dough. cut the ball in half and knead both back into balls. Place the balls of dough into two flour-dusted bowl. Cover the bowl with a cling film and place in a warm room for about an hour until the dough has doubled in size.

Now remove the dough to a flour-dusted surface and knead it around a bit to push the air out with your hands – this is called knocking back the dough. You can either use it immediately, or keep it, wrapped in clingfilm, in the fridge (or freezer) until required. If using straight away, cover with a damp cloth and get ready to make pizza.

    I love this recipe, the addition of the semolina flour really adds to that Italian feel to the pizza.
    the only tweak I do is I leave out the olive oil and it is still amazing.
