Epic Vegan Calamari Pizza

The dough is simply perfect! It’s chewy, has a good airy crust, is easy to make and doesn’t require any kneading, and great (even preferably) to make in advance. The toppings are to say the least epic with vegan calamari, thinly sliced potatoes, smoked paprika, and of course lots of cheese!



Pizza dough

  • 3g / 0,1 oz fresh yeast
  • 300ml / 10,6 oz water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g / 1,75 oz sourdough starter (can be omitted, for simple guide see this recipe)
  • 420g / 15 oz high gluten flour, preferably Tipo 00
  • 9g / 0,3 oz salt


  • Tomato sauce
  • Finely sliced red onion
  • Thinly sliced potato
  • Cheese of choice
  • Nature’s Charm’s Vegan Calamari, pan fried in plenty of olive oil
  • Parsley, roughly chopped
  • Smoked paprika


  1. Start with the pizza dough. In a large bowl, stir together the yeast, water, oil, and sourdough starter.
  2. Stir in the flour and salt. Let proof for 1 hour in room temp.
  3. Divide the dough into two, and using floured hands, shape into two balls. Place on a large well oiled plate, tray or food container. Spread a little bit of oil on top of the dough balls and wrap with plastic wrap. Let proof in the fridge at least over night or preferably for 24-48 hours. Make sure to use a large plate, tray or food container since the dough will expand a lot.
  4. Preheat the oven to 225C/450F.
  5. On a well floured surface, place one of the dough pieces and start pressing and pushing the dough in a circle as shown in the video above. Before getting too thin, transfer the dough to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Do the final stretching and shaping on the tray.
  6. Evenly spread the tomato sauce on the pizza and top with your favourite toppings. For this recipe, I did thinly sliced tomato, red onion, Nature’s Charm’s vegan calamari, and vegan cheese.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden and the toppings are cooked. Top with a drissle of olive oil, parsley, smoked paprika, and enjoy!
