Dairy-Free Autumn Pizza

Dairy-Free Autumn Pizza

Dairy-Free Autumn Pizza

  • Applegate Organic Chicken & Apple Sausage
  • Roasted acorn squash
  • Roasted garlic
  • Sautéed mushrooms and onions
  • Teese Mozzarella Vegan Cheese
  • Homemade pizza sauce
  • Homemade pizza dough

Notes: I would never have imagined making a dairy-free pizza a year ago, but since I found out my daughter has a dairy allergy I’ve adopted a completely dairy-free diet. My pizza dough doesn’t contain dairy, but if you’ve being reading my blog for long you know I love cheese. Recently, I’ve started to experiment with dairy-free cheese. Non-dairy cheese will never compare to a fresh block of soft-ripened cheese, but I’ve come to appreciate the subtle flavors in vegan cheese. However, what made this pizza special was the roasted acorn squash. Combined with chicken and apple sausage, my dairy-free autumn pizza tasted like fall.

If you’ve had a good experience with a dairy-free cheese, please let me know because I am open to suggestions.

Vegan Veggie Pizza Recipe

Vegan Veggie Pizza

Vegan Veggie Pizza

Ingredients

  • Sweet red pepper (from the Ithaca Farmers’ Market)
  • Zucchini (from my mom’s garden)
  • Red onion
  • Teese Mozzarella Vegan Cheese
  • Go Veggie Grated Parmesan Cheese (Vegan)
  • Homemade pizza sauce
  • Homemade pizza dough

Notes: Tonight’s pizza was an experiment on two fronts. First, it was my first time making pizza in a gas oven. And second, I used vegan cheese for the first time. I pre-baked the dough on a pizza stone for five minutes at 480 degrees. Then I topped the pizza with organic veggies and vegan cheese. I was worried the crust might get too crispy before the cheese could melt, but after ten minutes the crust was ready and the cheese was bubbling. My vegan veggie pizza was delicious. I am happy with my new gas oven and plan to experiment with some other vegan pizza recipes so check back soon!
