- 1 tsp sugar

- 1 tsp salt

Pizza Sauce

- 1 can (14 oz) crushed tomatoes

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 tsp olive oil

- 1 tsp dried oregano

- Salt and pepper to taste


- 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese

- 1 cup sliced mushrooms

- 1 cup black olives, sliced

- 1 cup baby spinach leaves

- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

- 1 tsp dried basil

- 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)


●Preparing the Dough:

1. In a bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it's frothy.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil.

3. Mix until a dough forms, then knead it on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until smooth.

4. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

●Making the Pizza Sauce:

1. In a saucepan, heat olive oil and sauté minced garlic until fragrant.

2. Add crushed tomatoes, oregano, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce thickens. Set aside.

●Assembling the Pizza:

1. Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to heat.

2. Punch down the dough and divide it into two portions for two pizzas.

3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface into your desired pizza shape and thickness.

4. Transfer the dough to a pizza peel or a baking sheet dusted with cornmeal.

5. Spread a generous layer of pizza sauce on the dough.

6. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.

7. Add your favorite toppings - bell pepper, red onion, mushrooms, black olives, cherry tomatoes, and baby spinach.

8. Sprinkle dried basil and red pepper flakes for added flavor.

●Baking the Pizza:

1. If using a pizza stone, carefully transfer the pizza onto the hot stone in the oven.

2. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly.

3. If you're not using a pizza stone, bake the pizza on the baking sheet in the oven.

●Final Touch:

1. Remove the pizza from the oven, let it cool for a minute, and then slice it into wedges.

2. Serve your homemade vegetarian pizza hot and enjoy!
