Ingredients You’ll Need
In this recipe, tofu, nutritional yeast and miso is blended creating a smooth and creamy white pizza sauce which is topped on flatbread with zucchini and yellow squash for an incredibly quick and easy vegan white pizza!
Here is everything you’ll need:
- Yellow squash

- Vegan naan bread – flatbread can be found almost anywhere or make your own vegan naan bread right at home!
- Tofu – soft is preferred for a smooth texture, but firm is ok too if you can’t find it.

How To Make Vegan White Pizza Sauce
- To make white pizza sauce, add the tofu, miso, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, parsely and lemon to the bowl of food processor or blender and blend until creamy.

Now that the vegan white sauce is blended, you’re ready to make the zucchini flatbread pizzas.
How To Make Vegan White Pizza
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Slice the zucchini and onions very thinly. I used a mandolin (affiliate link) for ease, but if you have great knife skills by all means use them here.
- Place flatbread on a baking sheet or cast iron pizza pan lined with parchment paper.
- Spread a thick layer of the ricotta on each flatbread (shown above).
- Layer the zucchini and yellow squash interchangeably on top of each flatbread.
- Add onion slices and sprinkle of salt and pepper (shown above).
- Place in the oven on the center rack and bake for 15 minutes (shown below).
And now you are ready to enjoy!
These summery zucchini flatbreads are great served with any of these toppers and sides:
- Garnish: Top with red pepper flakes and chopped herbs such as basil or parsley.
- Salad: Serve with Caesar Salad, Green Salad + Lemon Tahini Dressing or simple leafy green salad with Healthy Flax & Evo Balsamic Vinaigrette.
- Soup: Serve with soup like this Vegan Minestrone Soup, Tomato Basil Soup, or Lemony Kale, Leek + White Bean Soup.
- Vegetables: Add a side of Savory Sautéed Kale or Skillet Asparagus + Tomato Medley.
- Pasta salad: Serve alongside quick & easy Vegan Pasta Salad or Lemony Asparagus Pasta Salad.
- Veggies & dip: Try our Healthy Vegan Ranch Dressing or Hummus with a variety of vegetables.
How To Store Leftovers
- Refrigerator: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 – 5 days, in a covered container.
- Freezer: White pizza freezes well for up to 2 – 3 months. To freeze, let cool completely and store in freezer safe containers (affiliate link) or large baggies. If stacking the flatbread, you may want to place a piece of parchment between them so they don’t freeze together.
- Reheat: Warm in the oven preheated to 350 for 10 minutes, or until warmed through. Alternatively, microwave using 30 – 60 seconds until warmed through.

Planning to make this, I just don’t have miso easily available to me where I live. Since it’s a small amount, is it okay to skip this ingredient or is it essential to the dish? I was planning on putting this sauce over a layer of walnut basil pesto so I think I’ll be okay on flavor, just wondering if the miso is important to the integrity of the sauce itself holding up.
I think you’ll be fine without the miso, it adds a little depth of flavor but will be good without it too. The pesto sounds great and will surely make up for it. Enjoy!
