Homemade Donair Pizza
Donair pizza is a common takeout order, but it can also be made at home. Making homemade donair pizza is as simple as creating donair wraps from scratch!
Donair Pizza Ingredients
You need to start by making donair seitan, a vegan alternative to donair meat. This seitan recipe is straight forward as far as seitan recipes go. Simply mix the ingredients together, wrap in tin foil and bake!
Next, you’ll need some vegan donair sauce. Traditionally this sauce is made with condensed milk, but coconut milk is a simple and delicious vegan option. This sauce takes a bit of time to thicken but the result is worth it.
Finally, the donair pizza is assembled on a flatbread pizza crust. You can also make your own fresh vegan pizza crust if you like!
Load up the pizza with chopped onion and tomato which are classic donair toppings.
Vegan and Dairy Free Donair Pizza
Donair is typically made with meat and a creamy sweet sauce that uses dairy. It’s not a vegetarian, vegan or dairy free option.
However, anything can be made vegetarian, dairy free or vegan with some creativity. This vegan donair pizza uses seitan as a meat alternative and coconut milk to create a dairy free donair sauce!
Donair pizza is based off my recipe for donair wraps, so head to that post for more details on how to make the vegan donair “meat” as well as the dairy free sauce!
You may also like my delicious recipe for vegan donair dip! This hot dip doesn’t require seitan (uses store bought veggie ground round instead).

Vegan Donair Pizza
- Prepare the vegan donair "meat" (seitan).
- Prepare vegan donair sweet sauce while the meat/ seitan cooks.
