Whole Food Plant Based Pizza Base

Makes: 2 servings adjust



  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 cups Lukewarm Water

Step 1

Mix the sugar with lukewarm water until somewhat dissolved.


  • 2 packets Yeast

Step 2

Add yeast and mix. Wait 10 minutes. During this time the yeast will “proof” and once those 10 minutes are up, you should notice a bit of foam on top on the mixture. If there is no foam, your yeast is probably dead (or expired) and you will have to repeat again. This is vital!


  • 3 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Wheat Gluten
  • 2 teaspoons Salt

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine the wheat flour, wheat gluten, and sea salt.

Step 4

Then add proofed yeast mixture to dry ingredients. I prefer mixing with your hands because your hands can give you a better idea on whether or not your dough is too wet or dry. The dough should feel somewhat grainy but have a little (not like regular pizza dough so don’t get too picky here!) stretch to the dough (probably due to the added wheat gluten).

Step 5

Place a wet towel over your bowl with the dough and let sit for an hour until the dough has doubled.

Step 6

Once the dough has risen, you will want to stretch/roll/press (whatever suits your fancy!) the dough into a standard size pizza pan (not the jumbo one!). Let the dough rest in the pan for 10 minutes. This will allow the dough to rise slightly again which is what we are looking for.

Step 7

From there, you want to add your sauce, toppings, and any herbs you might want to use. Bake the pizza at 220°C for roughly 15 minutes (check the crust every 5 minutes or so to prevent the potential of burning!).
