Preparations for making vegan spinach and mushroom pizza with garlic sauce

The first thing you need to consider before making this vegan white sauce pizza is if you want to make the dough yourself or if you want to get a premade vegan pizza dough from scratch.

If you go for making it yourself (and if you have the time you should!), I have written down an easy vegan pizza dough recipe that I have used for years. It’s actually been sitting on the first page of my handwritten cookbook that I was given more than 20 years ago (Now, THAT made me sound old!). So there is no way I know where I got it from. But it’s easy to make and never fails! That’s why I thought it’s perfect to share with you.

You find the pizza dough recipe here.

Start with making the dough and while it’s raising you have time to prepare the vegan white pizza sauce and the toppings so they are ready to go once the pizza dough is ready to strech.

Other than cutting the vegetables, I also cut and heated up the spinach before I added it to the pizza. Just enough for it to become damp. The reason I wanted to do so is that they are easier to spread on the pizza together with other ingredients when they’re moist. While fresh, they make a thick insecure layer for the mushrooms to wobble on top of. It’s just more pleasant to add the toppings and I think they turn out better at the end, but that’s just me.

Now, let’s check out the recipe for this heavenly easy vegan spinach and mushroom pizza with white garlic sauce!


Easy Vegan Spinach and Mushroom Pizza with White Garlic Sauce

Are you ready to prepare an easy homemade gourmet pizza? I had never made a white sauce pizza before when I threw this together and it turned out so incredibly good that I couldn't resist sharing the recipe with you!
Prep Time1 hr
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time1 hr 20 mins
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegan margarine (ex. Flora or Vitalite) I use a well-topped tablespoon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon maizena
  • 300 ml soy cream, almond cream, or any other plantbased cream (if you don't have plantbased cream you can use soy milk and add more maizena if needed to make it thick, remember if it's too runny it will prevent the pizza from cooking properly as it moistens the dough)
  • 1/2 teaspoon herb salt or nutiotional yeast (if you don't have any of these, just taste with salt)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2-3 handfuls fresh spinach (alternatively, 1/2 cup frozen spinach)
  • 10-12 white button muchrooms You want heaps of mushrooms as they shrink in the oven
  • 2 charlotte onions (alternatively use 1/2 yellow onion)
  • Oregano

Instructions

  • Chop the spinach
  • Put in a pot with the bottom covered in water or melted vegan margarine (make sure it's minimal as you just want it to prevent the spinach to get stuck in the bottom) leave with the lid on minimum heat until damp (this is optional, but it makes it easier to put the ingredients on the pizza) If it becomes too watery, make sure you drain it before you put it on the pizza.
  • Chop the mushrooms in slices
  • Chop the charlotte onion in thin slices (if you use yellow onion, cut the slices in smaller pieces)
  • Heat up a pot with the vegan margarine
  • Chop the garlic meanwhile and cook in the margarine until golden
  • In the meantime, prepare the soy cream so it's READY to pour in
  • Take the pot off the heat
  • Add the maizena in the garlic butter. Now, it's extremely important that you mix it well with a whisk and add the cream as soon as it's mixed. The maizena will thicken the garlic butter in seconds and if you don't add the cream fast enough it might burn, and you don't want that. Mix well.
  • Add the herb salt or nutritional yeast and salt and pepper to taste
  • Prepare the pizza dough and flatten on a parchment paper on a baking tray
  • Add the white sauce in a thick layer on the flattened pizza dough
  • Add the charlotte onion and spinach
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and top with oregano
  • Leave in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the crust and mushrooms are golden. If you're unsure if it's ready, you can try to stick a knife into the crust to see if it's doughy or not.

How to serve vegan white sauce pizza

I love to eat my pizza by itself with my feet on the table and the plate on my lap watching a movie on tv. However, the vegan spinach and mushroom pizza with white garlic sauce is quite heavy and is perfect with something fresh on the side.

A side salad garnished with olive oil, salt and lemon is simple and refreshing, or you could make lemon garlic asparagus on the side.
