- Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
Top the Pizza
- Sprinkle vegan mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
- Top the pizza with sliced cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, and black olives, or any other desired toppings.
Bake and Garnish
- Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
- Garnish with fresh basil leaves before slicing and serving.
- Enjoy your delicious homemade vegan pizza! Customize with your favorite toppings for a truly delightful meal.
