Plant-Based Pizza: 50+ Tasty Plant-Based Pizza Recipes

Caprese Pizza


If you love Caprese salad you will love this pizza. While you are waiting for the Neapolitan pizza crust to rise you can whip up my quick pizza sauce recipe to amp up the flavor of this pizza. The Miyoko’s mozzarella is divine and worth the extra cost when compared with other vegan cheese varieties.
