Over the years, our dairy-free pizza night has quite evolved.
First we started with homemade pizza.
Then we took the easier route, building pizzas on tortillas or bagels.
In recent years, our pre-teen has preferred frozen pizzas made by Daiya and Tofurky.
But recently, we came full circle.
And went back to homemade pizza down to the sauce and crust.
And oh my goodness, the whole family wonders why we got away from this for so long.
Homemade pizza is most delicious!
When we make pizza homemade,
the whole family enjoys the same pizza together.
Even with dairy-free cheese across the board, it’s that yummy!
OR, split the dough into 4 personal pan pizzas.
My kids insist on topping their own!
Here’s our recipe for easy sauce, easy crust, and dairy-free toppings you’ll love.

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Dairy-Free Homemade Pizza Crust

Dairy-Free Homemade Pizza

Here are some dairy-free pizza topping ideas.
Check labels for yourself as ingredients can change.
Daiya Mozarella Shreds (use sparingly)
Once toppings and cheese are added,
bake the pizza on 450, on bottom rack, about 10 minutes.
Pull out the pizza when the cheese is melted and the bottom crust is brown.
Sprinkle with garlic salt fresh out of the oven, YUM!
Serve with salad and enjoy dairy-free family pizza night.
