Vegan Pizza Recipe

Pizza has always been a favorite. Who doesn’t love pizza? I especially love the thin crust. The best pizza I have ever had was on a visit to Rome, Italy. Very thin crust, simple and few ingredients, yet so incredibly delicious.

Many people always ask, “what do you eat?” when someone goes vegan, but the food doesn’t really change, just the ingredients, and only some of them. Did you know that pizza is so easy to veganize?

All right, I’ll share the recipe now. Sometimes you click on a link to get a recipe and you are bombarded by a long text with large pictures and you have to keep on scrolling and scrolling, and again scrolling down to get what you came for in the first place; the recipe, right?

So, without further ado, let me share a recipe for vegan pizza with capers.


Vegan Pizza With Capers


  • pizza dough (you can buy it or make it yourself)
  • Tomato sauce
  • 10 mushrooms
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • capers
  • vegan cheese

How do you make it?

  • Preheat oven at 180C degrees
  • Chop the vegetables into small pieces
  • Put the pizza dough on an oven tray
  • Pour the tomato sauce and spread it evenly over the pizza base
  • Arrange the veggie mix over the tomato sauce and the dough
  • Then add capers and vegan cheese
  • Finally place the pizza in the oven and bake for 20 minutes (baking time may vary, depending on what oven you’re using)

Note: The capers bring a really nice flavor to this pizza. I love capers, and this is a nice way to use them.

Which Vegan Cheese?

You can get vegan cheese at your local store. There is usually a section for vegan items. In case there isn’t, Costco has great vegan cheese, and then there is also the option of ordering onlineDaiya has some nice vegan cheese varieties.


There are also excellent vegan cookbooks available if you’re interested in more recipes.

I hope you liked this simple recipe. It’s easy to make and it doesn’t need many ingredients. The good thing about pizza is that you can always improvise. You could add anything you want, for example artichokes, or extra tomato slices. 🙂

  1. This looks delicious. I havenT cooked with capers before so that will be cool to expand my horizons.  I’ve been wanting to cut meat out again and dairy if I could. But I’m skeptical about fake cheese. What vegan cheese do you like most? Does Daiya have different types of cheeses like cheddar  or mozzarella 

    • Hi Nikki,

      Daiya has mozzarella and also cheddar cheeses. I like their flavor. Costco also has a great cheese mix of mozzarella, cheddar and pepperjack, I use that one a lot. 

  2. Wow, I’ve always like to try out new things in food. Having a vegan pizza to add to my list will be a huge milestone. Thanks so much for the recipe and method of preparation that you attached to the article . it was very helpful. I’d also like you to attach a video to it as that will be very much helpful. Thanks 

    • Hi Juliet, 

      Try it out, this pizza is delicious 🙂 Videos of food preparation will be added as soon as my kitchen is built (still working on that 😉 )

      Thanks for commenting

  3. Mmmmmouth watering! I love the topping recipe but being a Paleo advocate the base is not going to work for me unfortunately.

    That said I can replace the base with a dough made from coconut or almond flour or a mixture of the two.

    I do write a Paleo website and I was recently asked if Paleo Lifestylers can be vegans, I am sure you would agree that this would be difficult. Vegan is Vegan and Paleo is Paleo although your recipe with a different base does tick all the Paleo buttons!

    • Hi Hamish,

      You can certainly replace the base with a dough made from almond or coconut flour, that will work too 😉 

      I guess that some diets or lifestyles may have a few things in common, accidentally, but as for vegans being paleo, that might be hard, since we do not eat meat, and pealo includes lean meat, so … that won’t work for us 😉 

      Thanks for your comment! 

  4. Never really tasted a vegan pizza before. My new girlfriend just told me about it and I feel the need to give it a try very soon. It seems like you really know alot about it. I hope my girlfriend wins in her quest to make me a vegan. This will be a big turning point for her. I will make sure I come back here to give a feedback on the pizza we both make. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. Hey,

    Food is all-time favourite for me and your article just so relevant with me! I love pizza and husband also do. But we never heard about vegan pizza. I really like your recipe and preparing method! It’s looks so yummy and delicious I’ll definitely try in home tomorrow. 

    Thanks for sharing this article with us. I’m so grateful to you.

  6. Although I have never given any thought to vegan foods, your site has me wanting to try it. The food and recipes and information here are great. I’m going to give the pizza a try this weekend. I love pizza!

  7. Omg I love this thank you! I have recently gone vegan in the New Year, after my Uncle had to go Vegan due to health problems. My boyfriend soon followed, and now my mum is trying it with me too. I started in January and successfully did it for 4 weeks, but I have now slowly gone downhill (oops). I still haven’t touched eggs which has been quite easy, and most of my choices are still meat free. But I am struggling with prepping vegan food! This is probably due to laziness if I’m totally honest, but this pizza looks so easy to make and you can literally throw anything on top! Thank you so much for the idea and will deffo give this a go.

    • Hi Kelly,

      Feel free to check out more recipes on my website. They are all easy and yummy, so perhaps they will help you to prep vegan meals or give you some ideas.

      Enjoy the pizza!

  8. This recipe is very tasty and I am also a pizza lover. Looking forward to trying it soon, the mushrooms are so beneficial and the flavors of chili are mixed and most are used in pizza for one type of pepper such as red or green, but here there are two types of pepper with vegan cheese and it makes it more delicious and great.

    • Hi Joy,

      I like Bell peppers a lot and I prefer to mix them too, green with  red, or yellow. You can add chili too if you like some spice with it. 

      Thanks for commenting!

  9. Hi, Christine.
    Thanks for sharing Vegan pizza recipe.  The capers effect seems to do a surprising taste for my buds and I will try this recipe on coming Sunday. As the ingredients are commonly available in our kitchen and cooking process is very simple, I can surely surprise my daughter and her lovely mother.
    Warm Regards,
    Gaurav Gaur

    • Hi Gaurav!

      That will be a lovely surprise for your family 🙂 It is really surprising how tasty capers are on pizza. I have tried it before and I really loved the flavor! 

  10. The article is right up my alley, I just love homemade pizza, store bought pizza and paying for delivery pizza, in fact I love all pizza’s. The pizza showed in the over in your article, what size is that magnificent looking Pizza?

    In your opinion, which pizza taste better , thin or thick crusted pizza?

    How much would you say all the ingredients you listed, would cost at a local store?

    If you had a large micro wave over and baked the pizza in it, would it taste as good as baked in a regular over?

    Is Vegan cheese more costly than regular cheese?

    Nice article, well written, and the media all related the your contents, Well Done! Be Successful! LaurenceG.

    • Hi Laurence,

      Who doesn’t love pizza, right? I also love it, I never say no to pizza 😉 

      I prefer thin crusted pizza. The best pizza I have ever had was in Italy, many years ago, it had a thin crust and few toppings, but it was so incredibly delicious! Vegan cheese is not that expensive, I don’t think there is much difference in price between vegan and non-vegan cheese. I honestly prefer to use a regular oven instead of a microwave, for most dishes. It just tastes better when it comes out of the oven, don’t you agree?

      As for the ingredients for this recipe, they are all inexpensive, I guess that in total you would spend less than 8 dollars. I don’t live in the US though, but that is the estimate I have 🙂
