Vegan Pizza: It’s What’s for Lunch

May 6, 2020


We tend to think of pizza as an unhealthy indulgence. What if it doesn’t have to be that way? With a few tweaks, your pizza can turn into a healthy meal.

One note on vegan cheese

A lot of people may be skeptical about using a vegan cheese. Honestly, it can take a little bit of getting used to. But give this a chance. We think you’ll be as surprised as us at how good this tastes.

Vegan Pizza Recipe


4 whole-wheat Greek pitas (6 to 8 inches)

1 jar prepared pizza sauce (look for an option with no added sugar)

8-ounce bag Daiya Cheese

1/2 cup of your favorite veggies (mushrooms, peppers, olives, etc.)

Fresh basil for topping


Preheat oven to 400F. Spread pizza sauce on pita, sprinkle with cheese and toppings, and cook for five to 10 minutes or until crust crispy and cheese is melted.

With many restaurants closed right now, it’s a great time to experiment with making your own delicious plant-based foods at home. You may be surprised by the results!
