Recipe type: snack, new year party snack, appetizer
Serves: 8 slices
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (can swap for GF all purpose)
  • 1 package of instant yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp coconut or cane sugar
  • ½ tsp dried basil (optional)
  • ½ tsp dried oregano (optional)
  • 3 tbs olive olive
  • 1 cup hot water from the tap
  • ⅓ cup vegan mayo
  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp dried dill (can sub for 1-2 tbsp fresh)
  • ½ tsp dried parsley (can sub for 1-2 tbsp fresh)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 head of cauliflower chopped into small florets
  • ⅓ cup franks hot sauce
  • ½ cup homemade or store bought pizza sauce
  • 3 stalks of green onion, sliced diagonally into thin pieces
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and place your pizza stone in the oven to heat up.
  2. To make the dough, mix the flour, yeast, salt, sugar, and spices in a large mixing bowl. Add the oil and water and stir with a wooden spoon to combine. When the dough starts to form, use your hands to combine until all the flour is absorbed. Set the bowl aside and cover with a tea towel.
  3. Add the cauliflower florets to a medium sized bowl and add Frank’s hot sauce. Toss to combine. Layer a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat and add the cauliflower plus extra sauce, spacing it out. Bake at 425 F for 15-18 minutes or until almost cooked (the cauliflower will spend 10 more minutes in the oven later on!). Remove the cauliflower from the oven when finished and bring the heat up to 450 F.
  4. Combine all the avocado ranch sauce ingredients (mayo to syrup) in a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  5. To assemble the pizza, place your dough ball on a clean, lightly floured counter space. Use your hands to stretch the dough out from the center. Pick it up and place your fists in the middle, rotating the dough in a circular motion slowly as you stretch it out until it reaches the desired width (approximately 12″).
  6. Carefully remove the pizza stone from the oven* and place onto hot plates on the counter. Lightly fold your dough in half and move it onto the stone, unfolding it once it’s positioned to your liking.
  7. Add the tomato sauce to the base of the pizza and spread around to the edges.
  8. Add the cauliflower pieces and ¾ of the green onion, spacing them out evenly.
  9. Place the pizza in the oven at 450 F and cook for 11-14 minutes or until the edges are browned and the underside is cooked through.
  10. Carefully remove the pizza from the oven and place it back on to the hot plates. Top with generous dollops of the vegan avocado ranch and sprinkle with remaining green onion.
  11. Slice into 8 even pieces and enjoy!
