This Vegan Margherita Pizza recipe is really delicious and unique! It’s full of flavor, cheesy, and super delicious. Vegans and non-vegans will love this pizza!




Garlicky Olive Oil Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 garlic cloves, minced
  • pinch of salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes 


  1. Preheat the oven to the highest temperature (500°F or 550°F) your oven can get.
  2. Make the Garlicky Olive Oil Sauce. Mince the garlic and add it to a small bowl with olive oil and a pinch of salt, black pepper, and red chili flakes. Stir to combine.
  3. Prep the pizza dough. Roll it out. Spread the Garlicky Olive Oil sauce evenly on top. Add sliced tomatoes and generously sprinkle diced vegan mozzarella cheese evenly on top.
  4. Bake at the highest temperature (500-550° F); your oven can get for about 10 minutes or until doneness.
  5. Add chopped basil leaves and a pinch of black pepper and red pepper flakes on top before serving.


Store pizza in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot. We like to add olive oil to a pan and love how it crisps up the pizza crust. Goodbye to soggy leftover pizza dough.
