Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add in 3/4 cups of the flour along with the sugar, yeast, and salt. Mix together.
  3. Add the oil and water, then using an electric hand mixer beat until a dough forms. This will take a few minutes, then stir in the remaining flour.
  4. Wrap the pizza dough in cling film and pop into a bowl and allow to rest for 30-40 minutes. This helps to activate the yeast.
  5. Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth & springy to touch.
  6. You can either roll out the dough or place it onto a floured pizza tray and press it down until it touches the edges. If you want the pizza to be extra crispy, you can pre-cook the base for around 5 minutes before adding the toppings.
  7. Spread on the tomato sauce and top off with spinach, sliced tomatoes, jalapeños, sun-dried tomatoes, and vegan cheese.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes — check frequently to make sure the crust doesn't burn!
