Book Description

“Vegans, rejoice—Julie Hasson has given pizza a plant-strong makeover. With a dazzling array of globally inspired toppings, pizza night will be healthier—and more fun—than ever before!”
—Nava Atlas, author of Wild About Greens and Vegan Holiday Kitchen

“Julie Hasson has brought her incredibly talented baking skills and vegan ethos over to the savory side with this compelling and thorough take on vegan artisan pizza. Classic pizzas such as garlic, sausage, and onion pizzas are reimagined and every bit as flavorful and toothsome as their traditional counterparts. i’m ready to make seasonal, vegetable-laden pizzas such as a corn, pesto, zucchini, and tomato pizza or even a sweet potato and kale pizza for my next pizza party. These are appealing, fun, and doable recipes for the vegan pizzaiolo at home.”
—Diane Morgan, author of Roots: The Definitive Compendium

“Julie Hasson has broken all the rules for pizza and taken it to uncharted territory. no longer is it about gooey cheese and tired toppings—it’s about combinations of flavors so fun and original that it boggles the mind. How about a Korean Bibimbap or Chili Mac pizza? or one that marries peanut butter with barbecue sauce for a peanut Barbecue pizza? if you want the classics, you’ll find those, too. after reading Julie’s recipes, who needs pepperoni?”
—Miyoko Schinner, author of Artisan Vegan Cheese and cohost of Vegan Mashup

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best Vegan Pizza Ever! September 15, 2013
By Teddy
Format:Paperback
Bill and I LOVE pizza, so I make it a lot! However, since I received the Vegan Pizza Cookbook by Julie Hasson, I have been making a pizza every week! Don't get me wrong, I always made good pizza, just not restaurant quality pizza.

It cost me a total of $80 but now I make restaurant style pizza. It now tastes like it came out of a brick oven and it has the crispy texture I always longed to create. The secret is a pizza stone and pizza peel. The pizza stone goes directly in the oven and the pizza peel is the paddle you use to get the pizza on and off the stone with out burning yourself. You can keep the stone in the oven and put your cookware right on top of it as well. Since I started doing that, everything I have put in the oven has cooked more evenly. Let me tell you, both the stone and peel were well worth the investment.

The other trick to perfect pizza is the recipe. There are several recipes in the book but my favorite is the basic. It is quite a bit wetter than the dough I use to make, but that is the other trick required. Use just enough flour to be able to roll the dough out. Then put it on parchment paper and on the pizza peel. Put all your topping on and then put the pizza that is on the parchment paper directly on the pizza stone, in the oven.

Have you ever thought to put potatoes on a pizza? I know, sounds crazy but trust me it's not. I made the
Potato and Wild Mushroom pizza from the book. OMG, it was so good. In fact, there was only one lonely peace left for me to take a photo of.

I highly recommend the Vegan Pizza Cookbook! You don't even have to be vegan to love it!

I received the ebook version of this cookbook from Net Galley for my honest review.

What a scrumptious book this was to read and try a few recipes from. My daughter and I had a blast trying out some of the creations. We have a few recipes for pizza we use regularly but these took our pizzas to a new level of exciting meals. The author uses many grains, nuts, vegetables and nutritional additions to add nutritional value to your pizzas. The book is laid out in easy to read chapters with detailed descriptions of ingredients. I thought a few of the recipes a bit complicated for an easy pizza dinner but nice for a Sunday dinner experience. There are a lot of ideas to make your own special pizza.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little bummed September 7, 2013
Format:Paperback
I just got this in the mail today. & while I see several interesting recipes I am looking forward to trying. I had to give this 3 stars. The problem I have is that while the book provides 3 "cheese" sauce style recipes(none mozzarella), almost every pizza recipe called for shredded vegan mozzarella style cheese. I am not a big fan of using store bought vegan meats & cheeses. I prefer a whole foods, limited processed food diet. It would have been nice to see more cheese free style pizzas in the book.
Also some pictures woul be nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heck Yeah Vegan Pizza! October 21, 2013
Format:Paperback
(Full disclosure: At my request, the publisher sent me a free copy of this book for review.)

I just had to laugh when I spotted some reviewers questioning the necessity of a cookbook devoted solely to vegan pizza. Pizza is pretty much the perfect food; potential toppings and topping combos run the gamut, and are really only limited by one’s imagination. Some of my own personal creations of which I’m particularly proud include a Thanksliving Pizza (topped with mashed potatoes, carrots, green beans, Tofurky, gravy, stuffing, and cranberry sauce), a Cheddar Bacon Cheeseburger & Fries Pizza, a Mac & Cheese (with bacon!) Pizza, a Kalamata Olive Crust Pizza, and a Lemon Pepper Bruschetta Pizza. And don’t even get me started on pizza variants! (Pizzadillas, dessert pizzas, pizza fries, taco pizza, pizza soup, pizza bread…I could go on and on!) It’s wonder there aren’t more vegan pizza cookbooks on the market!

Maybe I’m biased – I run a vegan pizza tumblog, after all – but yeah. I think this is one niche that deserves more attention than it’s gotten to date. Julie Hasson’s VEGAN PIZZA is only the second vegan pizza cookbook of which I’m aware – the first being Mark Sutton’s HEART HEALTHY PIZZA, published in 2012. (For those who found the recipes in VEGAN PIZZA too unhealthy/reliant on processed cheeses, check out Sutton’s book – all the ingredients are homemade!)

VEGAN PIZZA is roughly divided into four sections: Dough and Crusts, House-Made Meats, Cheesy Sauces and Spreads (including tomato sauce and pesto), and THE PIZZAS (with 32 total pizza creations, five of which are dessert pizzas). I like that Hasson provides recipes for diy meats and cheeses; this is especially helpful for those looking to save some money, or who don’t always have access to the store-bought stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vegan Pizza is easy and delicious! September 22, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am so happy to have added this book to my collection. I love pizza and am often disappointed by the pizzas that I order from around town because they often aren't all that flavorful and can cost a small fortune. This book is going to change all that for me and I couldn't be more thrilled. I started off by making the Easy-peasy Pizza Dough which couldn't have been any easier! I just mixed everything together and threw it in the fridge! My partner chose the Thai Peanut Pizza to start off with and it was delicious! The peanut sauce is so good! We added jalapeños which was a nice addition and I could see adding tiny cubes of baked tofu to it as well. For dessert we made the Raspberry Crumble pizza which was absolutely divine! I can't wait to try all the other recipes in this book. Making pizza never felt like an easy quick doable meal until now.
