Pizza Base
  • 300 g plain flour
  • 4 g dry active yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 200 ml luke-warm water
  • oil small amount
Tomato Sauce
  • 100 ml tomato passata
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 pack Squeaky Bean Garlic & Herb Chicken Style Pieces
  • 2 chunks spinach frozen
  • 1 bulb garlic (including 3 roasted cloves for the garlic and herb dip)
  • vegan mozzarella to taste
  • 1 red onion sliced, caramelised (cook in oil, salt and brown sugar)
  • basil fresh and chopped
Garlic and Herb Dip
  • 150 g vegan yoghurt (greek style, thick)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pickle juice (from Vadasz Red Onion Pickles, or those of your choice)


  • Place the flour, salt, and yeast into a large mixing bowl, combine with a wooden
    spoon and create a well in the middle, pour in the lukewarm water and combine into a
    dough. Knead the dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes, then place the dough ball
    back into the bowl. Brush with a little olive oil, cover, and place in a warm place for 90
  • Cut off the top of an entire garlic bulb, drizzle it with a little oil and wrap it in kitchen
    foil. Roast the garlic at 200C in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until fragrant and soft.
  • In the meantime, defrost the spinach in a bowl, combine your ingredients for the
    tomato sauce and caramelise your red onion in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil, a little
    brown sugar, and a sprinkle of salt.
  • When your garlic is roasted, add 3 cloves to a blender or food processor and whip up
    your garlic & herb dip with the rest of the ingredients. Set the rest of the garlic cloves
    aside as a pizza topping.
  • Once the time for your pizza dough elapses, remove the dough from the bowl and
    knead it on a floured surface for 2 minutes before separating the dough into 2 balls.
  • Preheat your oven to 200C and stretch out your dough balls into your pizza base.
  • Spread the pizza sauce across the base and add your toppings: Squeaky Bean
    Garlic & Herb Chicken Style Pieces, spinach, caramelised red onion, garlic cloves, and
    vegan mozzarella.
  • Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until your pizza is cooked
    and the cheeze melted. Sprinkle with fresh, chopped basil and serve hot alongside the
    garlic and herb dip.
