I love experimenting with different flavors, and the idea of a vegan pizza is really exciting.

It’s a chance to break away from traditional toppings and explore a delicious range of choices.

I’m excited to share my favorite vegan toppings and how to make them at home.

1. Miyoko’s Creamery Vegan Cheese – My Favorite

Is Miyoko Creamery Vegan Cheese Good on Pizza

Miyoko’s Creamery Vegan Cheese is a game-changer in the world of vegan toppings.

Unlike some vegan cheeses that struggle to melt, Miyoko’s Creamery melts just like a “real” one.

It brings a luxurious taste that rivals traditional mozzarella, making it perfect for those seeking a plant-based option without sacrificing flavor.

Pairing it with Chianti Classico remains a perfect combination for a romantic dinner.

How to Prepare?

  1. Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to preheat as well.
  2. Roll out your pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness.
  3. Transfer the rolled dough onto a pizza peel or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border for the crust.
  5. Generously sprinkle the shredded Miyoko’s Creamery Vegan Mozzarella over the sauce.
  6. Add your chosen toppings evenly across the pizza.
  7. Carefully transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone or leave it on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
  9. Remove from the oven, let cool for a few minutes, slice, and enjoy!
Ingredient Amount for Standard Pizza Size

Your Choice of Additional Toppings (e.g., bell peppers, red onions, artichokes) As desired

2. Daiya Vegan Cheese Shreds

Should I Put Daiya Vegan Cheese Shreds on Pizza

Daiya Vegan Cheese Shreds goes well with almost any ingredient.

Equally good against the sweetness of caramelized onions and earthy mushrooms, Daiya also goes great with a little zing from roasted red peppers or sun-dried tomatoes.

These shreds also work well with leafy greens like spinach or arugula for a fresh contrast.

3. Violife Vegan Cheese Slices

Violife Vegan Cheese Slices are a dream come true for vegan pizza lovers.

These slices are perfect with classic Italian toppings like ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, and a drizzle of olive oil.

They also pair well with grilled zucchini or eggplant.

For a unique twist, try them with pineapple and jalapeño for a sweet and spicy kick.

You can go a step further and try a gluten-free version. The first step is to learn how to prepare the gluten-free dough in the right way.

4. Kalamata Olives


Kalamata olives work well with sweet bell peppers, artichokes, or red onions to balance their strong flavor. Add sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and vegan feta cheese for a Mediterranean touch.

5. Broccoli Florets

How to Make Pizza With Broccoli Florets

Though I was initially unsure about broccoli florets, their crispy texture and nutty flavor quickly won me over, offering a lovely contrast with the soft, chewy base they were paired with.

The fact that you can play around with unusual toppings makes pizza recipes so exciting in the first place.

Lay down a base of rich tomato sauce, sprinkle a hearty layer of Daiya cheese, and arrange the onions and broccoli on top. A dash of chili flakes adds just the right amount of warmth. Cook it all until you see a golden edge and the cheese is perfectly melted

10. Sun-dried Tomatoes

Are Sun Dried Tomatoes Goof For Pizza Toppings

Sun-dried Tomatoes are a topping I turn to when I want to add a touch of Mediterranean flair to my pizza.

The intense, sweet-tart flavor provides a wonderful contrast to the creamy texture of vegan cheese.

11. Canned Artichoke Hearts

Canned Artichoke Hearts Pizza How to Make

This one is perfect for those who prefer having more on their slice. You know, if you like a combination of flavors, along with more calories in a single piece.

And also, don’t worry about the recipe since you can add it to basically any of these vegan combinations. There are no specific rules to follow.

12. Sliced Pineapple

Is Sliced Pineapple Pizza a Thing

A controversial choice for some, I know. But isn’t it the same for vegan pizza after all.

If you can add plant-based cheese on it, why wouldn’t you try with pineapple?

While my favorite combo is with bacon, bell peppers and some plant-based meat are a decent alternative.

13. Vegan Pepperoni

Vegan Pepperoni is for those who don’t want to give up the well-known taste. For this one, less is more. Putting a lot of other vegan ingredients will won’t improve the taste. My favorite combination is vegan cheese, vegan pepperoni, and some arugula over that.

14. Roasted Sweet Potato Chunks

Is it difficult to make pizza with roasted sweet potato chunks

The creamy texture and the rich taste are perfectly balanced with the characteristics of vegan cheese. You will achieve the best results if you cook the potatoes for a few minutes, dry them a bit, and then slice over the dough.

Last Words

Exploring vegan toppings is all about discovering new flavors. It’s a mix of great taste, health, and creativity that turns a simple meal into something special for those looking to try something different.
