Vegan Dough?
« on: July 25, 2019, 11:30:04 AM »
So had a crazy idea to invite 20 people who are managers in my department to my place for a Pizza Party oven party.  One of them is Vegan.

I'm going to be buying dough balls (no time to make them), but thinking I may need to make a vegan dough, which I think can't use yeast or a different form.  Any successful dough recipes where I don't need to worry about changing temps on the oven or things I need to watch out for?

All types of yeast are vegan.

As long as the doughs don't contain milk, butter, eggs or anything else from animals, they're fine.

I made a whole wheat and spelt dough for a vegan friend. It was a surprise visit so I used a lot of yeast, maybe 1%, 55 or 60% water, 10% spelt, .1% salt or some other very small number, barely enough I could consider it had any. I tried to stretch it but ended up using a rolling pin as stretching was not working. Topped with sliced cherry tomatoes and onions, baked at 650 or 700 for 2 or 3 minutes in my OONI Pro. I can't tell you how it was as Mike and Priscilla finished it before I had a chance. Don't know that it was really pizza, but it seemed to be appreciated. Sorry for not keeping the recipe, but Mike is a bit past vegan so I was asked not to make it again. He doesn't usually eat wheat.

There are vegan's that disagree.  A tiny, tiny minority.  Jain veganism forbids yeast and other fungi.  But I'm guessing the OP is safe to serve the purchased dough to his coworker.

Eating yeast is unavoidable.

Thanks.. Had thought I read somewhere that yeast was an issue.

I will take the risk. Ha.

Just to be clear, being vegan and not eating gluten are 2 different things, right??

Then, why yeast can't be eaten by vegans?  ??? (sorry I could make a search on Google but let's continue the debate here  ;D)

Jainism is a religion. Veganism is a way of life.

It is, and yeast can be eaten by vegans since it's a single cell organism or something like that.

If you got celiac disease, you can't eat gluten. Then there's people with IBS that react to flours and some that don't eat wheat or gluten because they think it's bad for them.

Indeed, yeast is a mushroom, mushroom is a vegetable, I see no reason for vegan not to eat it!  ???

And about the gluten/vegan thing, pbc talking about a "vegan dough" and Ira's message saying "Mike is a bit past vegan [...]. He doesn't usually eat wheat", I was afraid some people who don't know a lot about these two subjects could have been confused! Vegan and gluten-intolerant are 2 different things, although vegans who are looking for healthier foods are often looking for gluten-free products as well. But vegans can eat gluten  :P

It's not that Mike is gluten intolerant, the diet he follows does not show that wheat is a healthy food.
