The BEST Vegan Pizza

This vegan pizza is the BEST I've ever had. It's topped with simple ingredients like marinara, garlic and oregano, plus a little vegan mozzarella cheese which takes this pizza from good to amazing. It's made with your favorite store-bought pizza dough, and it comes together in just 30 minutes!

Notes

*If you add the mozzarella right away, it will bake more into the dough and brown a bit on top (as seen in the recipe video). This is FINE and totally normal. However, if you want the cheese to look a little more like traditional mozzarella cheese, bake the pizza WITHOUT the mozzarella for 15 minutes, then remove the pizza from the oven, add the mozzarella and bake for 5 more minutes.
