Making pan pizza in a roasting pan is a snap. Just pop the dough into an oiled roasting pan, cover and let rise in a warm spot, spread it out, top it with your favorites then bake it for 15 minutes and it's done. Look at that crispy crust, yum! I'm never going back to the conventional way of making pizza.
Premade pizza dough or homemade pizza dough
Sauce of choice
Vegan cheese of choice(shredded)
Toppings of choice
1. Add 2 Tbsp olive oil to a roasting pan. Place dough into pan and turn over to coat evenly with oil. Press dough flattening it slightly. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let dough sit at room temperature for 2 hours to rise. *I preheat my oven to 170°F, turn off the heat, then place the pan in the oven with the door open. After 15 minutes, I shut the door.
2. Preheat oven to 500°F. Press dough around pan until it fills in every corner, popping any large bubbles that appear. Lift edge of the dough to let any air bubbles underneath escape if needed, then repeat until there are no air bubbles left and dough is evenly spread around the pan.
3. Spread sauce over dough all the way to the edge, no need to leave any untopped dough. Followed by vegan cheese and toppings. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake 15-17 minutes. *Broil for 2-3 minutes to crisp topping if preferred. Let stand 5 minutes before using a spatula to remove pizza from pan to a cutting board.
*I used a Scanpan roasting pan, Trader Joe's pizza dough, Dei Fratelli pizza sauce, Fieldroast plant-based pepperoni and Follow Your Heart mozzarella shreds.
