Vegan Thin-crust Pizza

What you need: 

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil + more for drizzling
2/3 cup water
1/2-3/4 cup marinara or pizza sauce
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
onion powder, to taste
oregano, to taste
sprinkle red pepper flakes
sprinkle vegan parmesan
1 cup mozzarella vegan cheese, shredded (I use Daiya)

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, olive oil, and water in a bowl and knead until fairly smooth. Roll out into pizza dough shapes on lightly floured counter or cutting board. You can make one big pizza or a few personal size pizzas with this amount.
2. Roll out the dough as thinly as possible, usually about 1/4" thick, and fold the edges in a little bit. Prick all over the center of the crust(s) with a fork and put the crust(s) on prepared sheet; bake for 5 minutes.
3. When crusts are finished pre-baking, spread a small amount of olive oil over each one and then cover with sauce. On top, sprinkle garlic, basil, onion powder, and oregano.
4. Top with vegan mozzarella and parmesan. Put back in the oven for 12-15 more minutes, or until the cheese looks melty and is starting to brown. The crusts should feel crispy, so if the pizza sags a little when you take it off the sheet, you can put it back in the oven for a few more minutes.
Optionally, top pizza with additional vegetables or seitan before baking.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was GREAT!  I've been buying pizza crusts at Whole Foods which is expensive and a pain in the bum since there isn't one nearby, so thank you so much!  I also wonder about freezing, as well as if it would work as well with a brown rice or whole wheat flour?  Anyone?

Amazing Crust! I added flax seed for a little extra.

Great fast and easy pizza crust. It tastes a little biscuit like. Next time I'm going to try adding garlic and vegan butter (earth balance) just to make it even better!

This was really really good! I want to try par-baking it and see if it freezes. Has anyone done that?

Thanks! Lately I've realized this is good for white pizzas too, using one of the 'alfredo' sauce recipes on here, with spinach and artichoke. I recommend that as well.

It's delicious. I wanted a quick, no-rise, no-yeast dough for a fast lunch. The dough reminds me a little of foccacia bread. It's such a simple recipe that turns out fantastic.

I ended up just using the crust recipe and it was awesome! I won't be overusing flour or yeast ever again!
