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

Summer Tomato Pesto Pizza


Get the most out of your summer produce by making this summer tomato pesto pizza. Fresh herbs and sweet heirloom tomatoes make this pizza so good it will be worth turning on your oven. Still not convinced? Try cooking it on your grill!

I recommend using my no-rise white whole wheat pizza dough for this recipe but if you are in a hurry store-bought dough will work as well. This is the perfect meal to use all of the basil and tomatoes that are abundant in your garden and in the grocery store in late summer.

I created this recipe because I have been wanting to try out Miyoko’s Pourable Plant Milk. It worked perfectly! I was intimidated to work with liquid cheese, but all I did was pour a thin layer, and then the cheese gets bubbly and brown when in the oven.

I also created pesto by hand instead of using a food processor. It is a nice alternative if you do not own a food processor or if you want a rougher texture.
