I love pizza. It was nothing for me, back in my unfit days, to order a medium pan pepperoni pizza and eat the whole thing myself.

Today I wouldn’t dream of ordering a delivery pizza (or of eating the whole pizza at once).  I have learned that anything that comes out of my kitchen is not only better for me but also tastes a whole lot better.

In a perfect world I make everything for the pizza: sauce, dough, even cheese. Only the veggies are grown by others. The cheese is easy. Brian makes the dough. I even make the seitan sausage. The sauce however takes more time than I have most days.  So the sauce had to go. Enter my Sauceless Sausage Pizza.  This quick and easy pizza is also vegan. The recipes for the faux sausage and for a very tasty cheese can both be found in one of my favorite cookbooks, La Dolce Vegan!

  • 4 oz of setian sausage
  • 1 cup canned no salt added diced tomatoes
  • 2 oz shredded vegan cheese
  • 10 fresh basil leaves
  • ½ small red onion sliced
  • 2 medium banana peppers chopped

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

If using the homemade crust, let oven warm 15-30 minutes before putting rolled out crust into oven on a pizza pan or pizza stone. Let bake 10 minutes and then remove.

Place all toppings on the crust and return to oven for 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and toppings are warm.

Slice into 6 pieces and serve immediately.
