How Can I Make a Vegan Cheese Pizza at Home?

Looking to whip up a vegan pizza at home? We’ll show you the way! Luckily, most pizza doughs, whether you’re following a recipe to make one from scratch, or buying a pre-made one from the store, do not contain dairy. In fact, most pizza doughs are fully vegan by nature, as they simply contain flour, yeast, olive oil, water, and salt. Also, most marinara sauces are vegan by nature, but be sure to check the label to make sure that your sauce of choice doesn’t contain cheese or milk. 

Next up on the traditional pizza topping list is, you guessed it, cheese! But not to worry – your vegan pizza will remain fully vegan. The best way to make a vegan pizza at home is to buy pre-made, vegan cheese from your local grocery store to sprinkle on top of your pizza. Like we mentioned earlier, you can also opt to forgo cheese all together and to just load your pizza up with sauce, veggies, and other fun toppings. But, there are lots of dairy-free cheese alternatives out there, many of which are absolutely delicious! 

Here are some of our go-to vegan cheeses:

  1. Vegan Mozzarella

    When you think of the cheese that tops pizza, this is probably the type you’re thinking of. Mozzarella is undoubtedly the most popular cheese toppings when it comes to pizza. And as it turns out, there are plenty of tasty, dairy-free mozzarellas out there that will take your vegan pizza to the next level! Some of our favorites include:  Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Mozzarella

    So Delicious Plant-based Mozzarella Style Shreds

  1. Dairy-Free Ricotta

    If you’re feeling a bit fancier, another yummy cheese to throw on pizza is ricotta. There are also some great, dairy-free alternatives out there for this type of cheese! One of our favorites is the Tofutti Better Than Ricotta Cheese. Pro tip: make a vegan pesto pizza with a vegan ricotta topping. We promise you won’t regret it. 

  1. Dairy-Free Parmesan

    Last but not least, everybody loves a sprinkle of parmesan on their pizza! For a dairy-free alternative to parmesan you can try the Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Parmesan, or, for an even more nutritious option, try Nutritional Yeast, which is an excellent source of vital nutrients and has a naturally cheesy flavor.
