If you live in a tiny home, dorm, Airbnb's, or an apartment without a full oven, and you all of a sudden get a craving for pizza, then this recipe is for you! This vegan artichoke pizza can be made in a toaster oven in only 20 minutes or less. The toppings are easily customizable, and the artichoke spread is an amazing healthy alternative to vegan cheese. This pizza is already soy-free and sugar-free, and can also be made gluten-free, oil-free, and nut-free. Try this plant-based artichoke pizza today and let me know your thoughts below!


Dough Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup flour (option: use gluten free flour)

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tbsp oregano

  • 1 tbsp garlic powder

  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil (omit for an oil-free option)

  • 1 cup cold water

Artichoke Spread Ingredients:

  • 1/2 can of artichokes (about 7 oz)

  • 1/4 cup walnuts (omit for a nut-free option)

  • 3-4 fresh basil leaves

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Other Toppings:

  • Tomato slices

  • Fresh basil leaves

  • Leftover artichokes

Directions:

  • Make the dough: ○ Combine all the dough ingredients in a mixing bowl. ○ Mix the dough with a spatula or spoon until it starts to come together. If it's too dry, add a splash of water. If it's too wet, add a sprinkle of flour. ○ Once it's too difficult to use the spatula, begin to use your hands. ○ Place the dough on a floured surface and knead it about 10-15 times, or until it forms into a nice smooth ball. It should be a soft dough that's not sticky. ○ Place the dough in a closed container to rest for 10 minutes.

  • Make the artichoke spread: ○ Combine all the artichoke spread ingredients in a blender, food processor, or nutribullet. ○ Blend/pulse until it forms a spread. It's okay if it's a bit chunky. ○ Set aside until you're ready to top your pizza.

  • Pre-b]ake the crust: ○ Once the dough has rested, put the ball on a clean surface and cut it in half (place the unused half back in the bowl and cover so it doesn't dry out). ○ On a clean surface, roll out the dough to about the size of your toaster oven baking sheet. ○ Place some tin foil on the baking sheet, and drizzle 1 tbsp of oil on it (for an oil-free option, use parchment paper instead of tin foil). ○ Bake, broil, or toast the crust until it is slightly browned.

  • Top your pizza: ○ Once the crust has browned, remove it from the toaster oven. ○ Flip the pizza crust over on the baking sheet. ○ Top the crust with the artichoke spread and sliced tomatoes. ○ Bake, broil, or toast the pizza again until the toppings are warm and the crust is slightly browned. ○ Remove from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before cutting into 4ths.

  • Repeat: ○ Repeat the above instructions for the 2nd half of your pizza dough. ○ Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you happen to have a full oven, you can still enjoy this recipe! ○ If you are using a baking sheet, I'd still recommend to pre-bake the crust. Bake it in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes or until it's slightly browned. Then flip over, top with the artichoke spread and toppings, then bake for another 10 minutes. ○ If you have a pizza screen or stone, pre-baking the crust isn't necessary. Simply roll out the pizza dough, top it, and bake 350°F oven for 20 minutes or until the crust is slightly browned.

  • This recipe is very customizable. Try topping it with onion, peppers, black olives, mushrooms, or chickpeas!

  • Store the slices in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. Reheat in your toaster oven or regular oven on 350°F.
