Stuff I love: Pizza stones
I love cooking with a pizza stone. The crust comes out perfectly cooked for me– crispy and evenly cooked.
Preheating the stone means the pizza crust cooks fast too.
Pizza stones can also be used to cook pizza on the BBQ grill.
The Hans Grill Baking Stone on Amazon is a great pizza stone option.

This recipe has it all with sauce, veggie toppings, and cream sauce, all plant-based. The drizzled sauce makes it one of the most delicious looking pizzas I’ve ever seen.
Making the perfect plant-based pizza
For many, pizza without dairy cheese might not sound so delicious. But I hope I’ve highlighted the many other plant-based cheese and topping options to give you an idea of how to get creative.
It’s really up to your imagination as to what makes a delicious, plant-based pizza. Let the toppings and sauces shine, and you and your family will be delighted.
A few more plant-based pizza tips:
- Don’t fear the dough. Pizza dough is generally vegan. It’s not always the case, so be sure to check. But most dough I’ve bought is entirely plant-based. Making your own dough is pretty simple too.
- Make your own cheese or shop for it. Popular homemade plant-based cheeses include cashew, nutritional yeast, and other ingredients. For store-bought options, check out top vegan cheeses (including our picks for pizza) here. You can always opt for a cheese-less pizza, too, including when you’re ordering out.
- Change up the sauce. Tomato sauce is and always will be my fave, but there are plenty of options, as you can see above. Try a white sauce, barbecue, balsamic, or whatever you think might be tasty.
- Experiment with veggie toppings. Nearly any veggie can go on a pizza. Some of my favorite non-traditional toppings are kale and corn. Varying sauces allow for more veggie versatility too.
