Vegan and Gluten Free Pizza Recipes

Vegan and gluten-free pizza recipes have become more and more popular by the day as many people have adapted to a more plant-based, vegetarian/vegan diet. Pizza, a universal treasure, is not an exception to this change as there are several pizza recipes online adapted as completely gluten-free and vegan.

Who doesn’t love pizza and its accommodation for an endless array of variety and options? With stringy cheesy goodness being almost synonymous with all that is pizza, it might be hard for some to imagine a pizza without it. However, there are so many yummy, vegan alternatives to try!

First of all, what is gluten? Well, gluten is a structural protein primarily found in certain cereal grains and all foods containing these kinds of cereal grains. Foods like fresh cheese, eggs, sausages, pastries, pies, pasta, and ultra-processed food products are all examples of food items you’ll find gluten present in. Those dealing with gluten allergies will be reluctant to discover that they can still enjoy their beloved pizza without having to worry about any symptoms of gluten intolerance.

The following are 8 delicious vegan, gluten-free pizza recipes containing no animal products or gluten products.

You won’t regret trying these tasty dishes! Feel free to customize toppings and other ingredients to your utmost liking.
