Now let’s answer all of your burning vegetarian pizza related questions:
Is cheese pizza vegetarian?
Inherently, yes! By definition, vegetarianism involves cutting out all meat products from one’s diet. Unlike in a vegan diet, vegetarians can still consume dairy products (like cheese), as well as other animal-derived products like eggs and honey. So, if you are a vegetarian eater, meaning you are okay with consuming cheese, then a cheese pizza will be right up your alley! As a vegetarian, the only thing you’ll have to be weary about when it comes to pizza is meat toppings. Avoid things like pepperoni and sausage when ordering or making your pizza, but do feel free to load up on all the other tasty toppings like different types of cheeses, vegetables, sauces, and drizzles!
What if I don’t like cheese?
If dairy, eggs, honey, and other animal-derived products aren’t your thing – congrats! You may not be vegetarian, but rather a vegan. And don’t worry. Being vegan doesn’t have to be boring, and certainly doesn’t have to mean cutting out pizza from your diet. In today’s modern world where vegan diets are more normalized and popular than ever, there are vegan alternatives out there for just about every non-vegan food. Yep, you can even find delicious vegan cheeses at your local grocery store! For a list of some popular vegan cheeses, click here.
How can I make a vegetarian cheese pizza at home?
Making a vegetarian cheese pizza in your own kitchen is a lot simpler than you may think! The easiest way to do so is by purchasing a pre-made pizza dough from your local grocery store (we love the Garlic and Herb Pizza Dough from Trader Joe’s), rolling it out, topping it with your personal favorite toppings (cheese, veggies – you know the drill), and popping it in the oven. But, if you’re looking to spice things up a bit, you can also make your own dough from scratch. Check out ‘The Best Pizza Dough Recipe’ by Sugar Spun Run, ‘Homemade Pizza Dough For Beginners’ by Sally’s Baking Addiction, or ‘The Best Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe’ by Taste and Tell. If you’re looking for some topping inspo, you can head here for a great list of vegetarian cheese pizza toppings.
The key to making a delicious vegetarian cheese pizza at home is to customize it to your liking. Don’t be afraid to try out some fun toppings, because after all when it comes to pizza toppings, the options are endless! Making your pizza at home means no one is around to judge your toppings choices, right?
