Homemade Organic Vegetarian Pizza Recipe Mushrooms

Vegetarians often find that pizza walks the line between the foods they can eat and not eat. On the one hand, the dough, tomato sauce, mushrooms, and other vegetable toppings are the perfect meal for them. On the other hand, many vegetarians prefer to not eat cheese, and the pepperoni and other meat toppings cannot be eaten.

The vegetarian pizza recipe laid out below uses only the best of the vegetable toppings with an organic cheese to create the perfect pizza. Melted onto a thick pizza crust, the cheese is a light, flavorful organic cheese that is not processed in any way. The toppings are all the favorite vegetable toppings, including mushrooms, onions, and even some broccoli for good measure.

You will find that this recipe truly is a delight, and all of your friends will agree that the simple pizza will be a tasty dish for any occasion. The best thing about your homemade pizza is that you can make it however you want, and you will find that the following recipe can be customized and altered however you want.

The Best Homemade Vegetarian Pizza
Summary: This is a vegetarian pizza created with vegetarians in mind rather than a meat one with the meat element missing. The cheese and fresh vegetable topping is delicious.
Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 5 cups of flour
  • 1⅔ tablespoons of yeast
  • 1⅔ cups of warm water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 large organic tomatoes
  • 5 large mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 medium bell pepper
  • 1 head of fresh broccoli
  • 1 pound of organic, 100% natural cheese
  1. The first step is to place the tomatoes on the stove to boil. Add a pinch of salt and pepper as the tomatoes boil, and puree them in the blender once they are soft. Return them to the saucepan to continue cooking, and cook until most of the acidity is gone.
  2. Place the flour in a bowl, and combine the yeast, oil, and warm water in a separate bowl. Combine the yeast mixture with the flour, and roll into a ball of dough. Knead the dough thoroughly, and place it in a large bowl to rise for 2 hours.
  3. As the dough is rising, slice the onions, mushrooms, bell pepper, and grate the cheese. Turn off the tomato sauce once you taste it and find it to your liking.
  4. Once the pizza dough has risen, roll it out into crusts, add the tomato sauce, sprinkle the cheese on top, add the toppings, and place it in the oven to cook.
  5. As the pizza is cooking, cut the broccoli into small pieces. Once the pizza has cooked for 20 minutes, sprinkle the broccoli on top. Cook for 20 minutes more before serving hot.
