Our vegan tuna pizza convinces even those who normally cannot do without meat, fish and cod.

Tuna pizza is one of the most popular pizzas ever. No wonder, the combination of tuna and onions is simple and yet ingenious. So today we will show you how you can enjoy this classic vegan dish.

Ingredients for 2 pizzas:

  • For the dough:
  • 8 g yeast (fresh, room temperature)
  • 220 ml water (lukewarm)
  • 350 g wheat flour (plus a little more for the work surface)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • For coating:
  • 300 vegan tuna
  • 2 red onions
  • 100 g tomatoes (chopped)
  • 4 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • Salt pepper
  • Italian herbs
  • 100 g vegan cheese spread (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons capers (optional)
  • 1 handful arugula (optional)

Preparation time:

  • 40 minutes (including rest time, plus 15 minutes baking time)

And this is how it is done:

  1. First prepare the dough: Crumble the yeast in 100 ml of lukewarm water and stir until it has dissolved. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the flour and salt together and then form a well. Pour in the yeast water.
  3. Mix the remaining water with the olive oil and also pour into the dough. Then knead everything for about 5 minutes until a smooth dough has formed. If it is too dry, add some lukewarm water. Shape into a ball and let rest covered in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the topping. Roll up the tuna a bit with a fork. Peel the onions and cut into rings. Mix the tomato passata with the tomato paste, season with salt and pepper and add Italian herbs to taste.
  5. Preheat the oven (200 degrees convection). Divide the dough in half and roll out each half thinly. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread with the tomato sauce. Then optionally sprinkle cheese on top and spread the tuna and onions evenly over both pizzas. Sprinkle some capers on top if you like. Finally, bake the pizzas for 15 minutes. Serve warm and sprinkle some arugula on top beforehand, if you like.

Our vegan tuna pizza really tastes like a regular tuna pizza. Because there are now some fish-free tuna variants available in the supermarket that are in no way inferior to the original in terms of taste. And for the very creative among you, it’s worth making your own vegan tuna: from chickpeas. The following gallery shows you what else is simmering in vegan cuisine:
