The vegan scene in Auckland has been growing for years, but the vegan healthy pizza options have proven themselves to be pretty sparse. We want to help fix that, which is why we’ve spent a lot of time tinkering with a couple of our recipes so that we could add some vegan options to our menu.
Dairy-Free Cheese and Dough
A vegan pizza starts with two of the most crucial components: the cheese and the dough. Our dough is unique and entirely dairy-free, made to be deliciously crispy once cooked. We scatter sesame seeds across the crust to provide an extra crunch, and one heck of a delicious flavour.
But what about the cheese? We use the very best dairy-free cheese to complement our sauce base. It’s soft, tasty, and melts just like real cheese. These two things in combination make for some of the best vegan pizza in town. We’ve got three options for hungry vegans: the Garden Love, the Margherita, and the Black Truffle.
The Garden Love Pizza
We begin with the Garden Love, the flagship of our vegan range and a delicious option for anyone craving a healthy bite. Our signature Proper marinade sauce tops our crispy, entirely vegan base. Dairy-free vegan cheese blankets this delicious pie, and the real stars of the show adorn the top.
Cherry tomatoes and green peppers add delicious texture and a bite of acidity, sweetcorn a dash of scrumptious sweetness. To finish off, the artichoke, spinach and fresh mushrooms give the pizza a heartier taste, protein, and fills you up for longer.
The Margherita Pizza
The Margherita pizza is a simple, delicious pizza that can be enjoyed at any time of day. Dairy-free vegan cheese substitutes our classic fior di latte Mozzarella, and we top it with extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil. In combination, these salty, slightly fatty ingredients create an incredibly full flavour. The basil cuts through for a fresh touch, and the sesame seed thin crust provides a satisfying crunch.
The Black Truffle Pizza
Saving the best for last, we’re onto our most popular recipe, the Black Truffle Pizza! This has been cited as one of the best pizzas in Auckland, and everyone should have their shot at having a slice. Like the other two pizzas in our vegan range, the cheese is substituted by our delicious vegan cheese, but it’s the toppings that really make this pizza phenomenal.
Truffle oil and black truffles combine with fresh mushrooms and pine nuts to create an incredible, earthy flavour that will have you picking up slice after slice. The base below is light and the Proper marinade cuts through with some delicious acidity, so you don’t become overwhelmed with truffle flavour.
So, for all the vegans out there, don’t worry about where your next 4 AM quality slice will come from. The Proper Pizza Company has got your back.
