Whitney In The Kitchen: Asian Style Vegan Pizza's

This is the ultimate and MOST delicious 'fakeaway' you will eat this week! Perfect for a weekend dinner, plus it's super healthy. If you can't decide between pizza and Vietnamese, then this is perfect for your palate. Inspired by the flavours of south-east Asia, mostly Vietnam, I present to you my recipe for an Asian pizza.

  • Pizza base and/or a whole grain wrap (feel free to make your own base)
  • Tofu, Naked by The Tofoo Co
  • Shiitake and button mushrooms
  • Cucumber
  • Garlic
  • Onion 
  • Lime
  • Tomatoes
  • Coriander (cilantro)
  • Spinach
  • Sriracha
  • Jalapeños 
  • Light soy sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Mirin rice wine
  • Sweet chilli.


1. Make your base sauce:

In a bowl combine the following ingredients:

  • 3 Tbs of sriracha
  • 1 Tbs of sesame oil
  • 2 Tsp of sweet chilli
  • 1 Tsp of light soy sauce
  • 1 Tsp of mirin rice wine
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic.

(Please note I didn't measure, but the above is a rough estimate, feel free to use what you feel is necessary)

Once all is mixed, brush on the mixture to your pizza base and wrap.

2. Prep the toppings

  • Pre-heat your oven to 200 C (390 F).
  • Chop your veggies and tofu to your preference as long as they are the right size to fit on your pizza and wrap. 
  • In a pan, with a teaspoon of coconut oil and a dash of sesame oil, lightly sauté your veggies (minus tomatoes) and tofu for approximately 3-5 mins. You essentially want them to be 'al dente' as they will further cook in the oven. 
  • Add your sauted veggies and tofu plus the tomatoes onto your pizza base and wrap.
  • Bake in the oven 8-10 minutes, until crispy.
  • Serve with a small side of sweet chilli.


After your pizza's are cooked, enhance them with some extra fresh flavour with the following:

  • Dice up approximately 1/4 of a cucumber and flavour with a dash of sesame oil alongside fresh lime juice.
  • Garnish the pizza with coriander (cilantro), the diced cucumbers and lime zest.
