Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the best flour to use for Vegan Focaccia?
We prefer using bread flour for this vegan dough recipe; however, all purpose or wheat flour would also work.
Even a mix of half all-purpose and half whole wheat will work with this recipe.
We cannot currently recommend a gluten free flour or mix at this time. We are adamantly working on creating a gluten free dough.
What is the best milk to use for this dairy free focaccia?
We prefer using oat milk in this recipe because of the consistency and taste.
You can use any non-dairy milk in this recipe. We do recommend that you stay away from strong flavors like coconut, banana, etc.
Alternatively, for a cheaper version of this bread, you could even swap for water.
What is the best type of sugar source for this Vegan Focaccia Pizza?
We use vegan cane sugar for this pizza; however, you can also use agave or maple syrup.
No matter which type of sugar that you use, you don’t need to adjust any other ingredient amounts.
Can I prep vegan focaccia pizza ahead?
Yes! You sure can!
Once your bowl is covered, you can place the bowl in the fridge up to 2 days before you plan to use it.
Just make the recipe as written, cover and place in fridge until ready to use.
Alternatively, you could make the entire pizza. Once made, let it cool and this store in an air tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
Can I freeze this vegan dough recipe before making the focaccia pizza?
Yes! Make the recipe all the way through rising. Then, once it has doubled in size, you can place in a ziplock bag and place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To use, let set in the fridge overnight until thawed.
Is this vegan dough Top 8 Allergen Free?
Unfortunately, at the time, we cannot recommend using a gluten free flour with this recipe. Please know that we are working on a gluten free dough, but it’s just not quite there yet.
Otherwise, as long as you use a safe dairy free milk, (like we said Oat is our favorite) then you will be all set.

Vegan Focaccia Pizza
- 3 1/2 – 4 cups flour (we prefer bread, can use all-purpose or whole wheat – see post for details)
- 1/4 cup vegan cane sugar (sub for agave or maple syrup)
- 1 package instant yeast (1 package = 2 1/4 tsp)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups dairy free milk (we like oat – can use any non-strongly flavored dairy free milk) *can also use water if needed
- 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup marinara or pizza sauce
- favorite pizza toppings
- In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
- Then, add in the dairy free milk.
- Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined. Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.
- Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl.
- Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
- When ready, on a pizza stone, lay down parchment paper and lightly flour. Stretch the dough out into a circle.
- Cover it and let it sit until doubled in size, approximately 20 minutes.
- Once doubled, add 2 tablespoons oil over the top.
- Using your finger tips, press down into the dough to make dimples all over the dough (literally push down to make dents into the dough that touch the bottom of the pan).
- Add a thin layer of marinara to cover the dough.
- Add any of your favorite pizza toppings. *In the photo we use, vegan cheese, sliced bell peppers, vegan walnut crumbles, and red pepper flakes.
- Bake at 400° for 20 – 25 minutes or until the bread is golden brown on top.
