Recipe by WI Cheesehead

This is from my dad, who developed some vegan recipes after my sister became a vegan. This doesn't have any cheese, and you don't miss it.

Top Review by White Rose Child

This is a tasty, very different kind of pizza. I used our usual whole-wheat crust and added a little green pepper with the other toppings. I liked it, but felt that the ketchup (which doesn't seem to belong on a pizza) really overpowered the more delicate flavors of basil and pine nuts. Kind of a shame, when basil is so expensive to buy for us. Still a good recipe- thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix water, yeast and sugar and let stand 10 minutes to start bubbling.
  2. Add flour to yeast mix and blend well.
  3. Place in a greased or oiled bowl, and cover with a warm damp cloth.
  4. Allow to rise in a warm place until double in bulk, around 1 hour.
  5. Punch down dough and pat out onto an oiled (or cornmeal dusted) pizza pan to form the crust.
  6. Bake in a preheated 450° F oven for 7 minutes. Crust may be refrigerated or frozen at this point. If using right away, turn oven down to 350°F.
  7. Place olive oil, basil, garlic, ketchup, pine nuts, and lemon juice in blender and process until smooth.
  8. Spread mixture onto baked pizza crust evenly.
  9. Add tomatoes, mushrooms and onions (or whatever you like, really) and bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
