If you decide you want to make your own pizza dough, I’ve got a great recipe for vegan pizza dough on the blog.

How To Make This Mexican Pizza 

The preparation of this pizza is pretty easy. All in all, it’s ready in about 25 minutes. Of course it takes a bit longer if you make your own pizza dough. 

STEP 1: Make your pizza dough. You could use my recipe for a vegan pizza dough. Or use a store-bought one. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. 

STEP 2: Roll out your pizza dough and place it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spoon the pizza sauce on top and evenly spread it out.

STEP 3: Now add the toppings. Start by adding the veggie ground meat, then the corn, the bell peppers, the red onion, and the kidney beans. 

STEP 4: Top the pizza with vegan cheese.

STEP 5: Bake the pizza for 7-10 minutes at 350 °F. Keep the pizza in the middle of the oven, so the crust won’t burn.

Recipe Notes:

  • I didn’t include a recipe for a pizza dough in this post. You can either use a store-bought pizza dough or you could check out my vegan pizza dough
  • If you want you could top off the pizza with a bit of vegan sour cream. I usually use store-bought vegan sour cream for this recipe. But you could also make your own. I included a recipe for cashew sour cream in my vegan chili post. 
  • Every oven is a bit different, so make sure your pizza doesn’t get too dark. I recommend checking after 7 minutes. Also make sure to keep the pizza in the middle of the oven.
