This easy homemade vegetarian pizza is fresh, simple, easy to make and uses ingredients made from scratch!
Someone asked me the other day what my favourite food was. I had to think about this for a while, but I think in the end it came back to Italian food, in particular pasta and pizza.
Pizza is definitely my go-to takeaway. I freaking love it!
I also really enjoy a good quality homemade pizza, and let me tell you, I’ve pretty much nailed making my own pizza dough from scratch!
A little while back we shared the recipe for our pizza dough, and since then I have been making so many different variations to try. It just tastes so much better than store-bought, and you know exactly what went into it, base and all.
In an effort to also try more vegetarian dishes, I decided to trial a new recipe for an easy homemade vegetarian recipe that showcased fresh, light and just damn delicious ingredients!
Our homemade vegetarian pizza is so easy to make, doesn’t use any nasty sugar laden sauces and really only takes a few minutes to prepare once the dough has been made. This pizza is made with just simple, fresh and delicious ingredients!
We really encourage you guys to try making our pizza dough recipe as well because it is seriously good! Yes it takes a little longer than store-bought, but honestly the quality is so much better that you won’t regret it!

PS – we realise that there are probably too many mushrooms, capsicum and probably sweet potato listed in the recipe, we factored in that if you’re anything like us, you’d probably end up eating half of the ingredients listed!
