Also, if the pizza doesn’t have you drooling – LOOK at the 12 inch FINEX Cast Iron Skillet from Made Trade. That octagon shape is so cool and the handle too!! We have been obsessed with using it for so many recipes from baked pasta to THIS vegan deep dish pizza!
We did a little A/B test with our other cast iron pan and the FINEX skillet is way more heavy duty so the pizza came out more even and better when using it.
This Vegan Cast Iron Pizza is one of our favorite pizza recipes to date. We used Miyokos brand mozzarella cheese. Miyokos really does amazing stuff, their cheese is one of the best commercial vegan brands out there right now. We used the fresh mozzarella but I know they will be coming out with shredded versions soon. I can’t wait for that!
We also used our Italian Sausage Crumbles recipe but modified a little bit. Instead of baking the crumbles in the oven first, like in the original recipe, you’ll want to put them straight on the pizza when they’re moist instead.
This just ensures the crumbles don’t get too dried out when you’re cooking the pizza. This recipe is super quick to make and tastes close to the real deal. It’s the perfect pizza topping!
This recipe for vegan deep dish pizza is easy to put together. Most of the time making it is spent letting the dough rest.
This cast iron skillet from Made Trade is 12 inches so if you only have a 10 inch pan, you may want to leave some of the dough out. Or if you want to make an EXTRA thick pizza, I’m on board with that decision too 😉! Just remember to put your pan on the bottom rack so the dough is close to the heat and can cook throughout.
