Spelt Pizza Dough

  • 1/2 cup warm water 105 to 110 degrees F
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 cups whole spelt flour plus more for kneading/rolling out
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for bowl
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened non dairy milk soy, rice, almond
  • 1 tsp raw honey

For the Veggie Pizza

  • 1/4 cup Kale Pesto link to recipe above
  • 4 ounces rice cheese mozzarella
  • 2 ounces goat cheese optional, can keep it vegan with just the rice cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced broccoli
  • 1/2 cup greens spinach or kale
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped red pepper
  • 2 large cloves chopped garlic
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • pinch sea salt


For the Dough

  • Mix the warm water and yeast in a small bowl to blend. Let stand until the yeast dissolves, about 5 minutes.
  • Mix the flour and salt in a stand mixer or food processor to blend.
  • Blend in the oil, soy milk, and honey.
  • With the mixer/machine running, add the yeast mixture and blend just until the dough forms.
  • If using a stand mixer use the dough hook and knead the dough for 1-2 minutes. If using a food processor, turn the dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Transfer the dough to a large oiled bowl and turn the dough to coat with the oil.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm draft-free area until the dough doubles in volume, about 1 hour.
  • Punch the down dough and form into ball. The dough can be used immediately or stored airtight in the refrigerator for 1 day.

Prep the Pizza

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray a fry pan with a small amount of oil and saute the onion, pepper, garlic, and broccoli until just golden. Season with a pinch of sea salt and pepper while cooking. (This step is optional. You can put the veggies on raw. This step pulls a little more flavor out of the veggies.)

Assemble the Pizza

  • Spread pizza crust onto a 13"-16" pizza dish, depending how thick or thin you like your pizza.
  • Spread pesto on pizza crust.
  • Spread half of rice cheese onto pesto.
  • Spread onion, broccoli, peppers, and garlic.
  • Spread tomatoes and greens.
  • Top with goat cheese and rest of rice cheese.
  • Drizzle with slight amount of extra virgin olive oil and pinch of sea salt.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until light brown.
