Kate Bradley’s Homemade Pizzas


Pizzas are a must in a person’s life –  but not always the greasy fat-laden pizzas! This recipe is for delicious and simple vegan pizzas.

You can top them with more or less ingredients depending on what you fancy.

For the pizza dough:
• 260g buckwheat flour
• 200g brown rice flour
• 7g dry yeast
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
• 2 tablespoons plant-based oil

For the tomato sauce:
• 375g cherry tomatoes
• 3 garlic cloves
• 2 tablespoons plant-based oil
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the topping:
• 75g cherry tomatoes, halved
• 1 zucchini, thinly sliced
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon kelp
• 1 red onion, chopped
• 1 teaspoon plant-based oil
• 2 tablespoons maple syrup
• 1 bunch basil leaves

1 To make the pizza dough, begin by combining the flours, yeast, salt and sugar in an electric mixer with the bread hook attachment.
2 Add 250 ml water and the plant-based oil and mix until a nice smooth dough has formed.
3 Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and gently knead for 5–10 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl in a warm place for 35–45 minutes or until risen.
4 Preheat the oven to 180°C.
5 While the dough is proving, make the tomato sauce. In a small oven dish place the tomatoes, garlic, oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 15–20 minutes until nice and roasted (see note).
6 Remove and transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and blitz into a sauce.
7 Knead the dough again, before pushing it into 2 flat bases on 2 baking or pizza trays. You can make the bases any shape you like – round, square or rectangular, it’s up to you! 8 You do want to get the bases quite thin (about 5 mm) and, then, once in the desired shape, prick them with a fork to stop them from rising too much in the cooking process.
9 Bake the bases in the oven for 5–10 minutes then remove.
10 Spread the sauce onto the bases and top with the tomatoes, zucchini, salt, pepper and kelp. In a small frying pan, fry the onion in the oil and maple syrup for 5–10 minutes. Add this to the top of the pizza.
11 Cook for 15–20 minutes until the base and vegetables are nice and cooked. Remove from the oven, slice, top with fresh basil and enjoy!
