Sweet Pepper Pizza with Vegan Sausage
It’s so legit. I made it last night for my best friend and she was all about it.
I bet you will be, too!
|Prep Time||1 hour|
|Cook Time||8 minutes|
Ingredients You’ll Need
1 Ball Of Pizza Dough Ready To Be Stretched And Rolled
1 Green Bell Pepper Sliced Thinly
1 Red Bell Pepper Sliced Thinly
1/2 Red Onion Sliced Thinly
1/2 Vegan Italian Sausage Link Sliced And Cut Into Fourths (I used Tofurky Italian Sausage)
1 Cup Vegan Mozzarella (I used Miyoko’s VeganMozz)
Semolina Flour For Sprinkling Dough
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
6 Garlic Cloves Minced
Basil Leaves For Tomato Sauce And For Garnish
1 28-Oz. Can San Marzano Tomatoes
1/4 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 Tsp Dried Oregano
1 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Water
Let’s Do This
Heat a baking stone in the oven at 500 degrees.
Start the tomato sauce. Remove whole tomatoes from can and place into a large bowl.
Pour 1/2 cup water into the can and reserve for sauce later.
In the bowl, squeeze the tomatoes and break them down into smaller chunks with your hands.
Heat oil over medium heat in a sauce skillet.
As soon as the oil is hot, add the minced garlic.
Once garlic is sizzling, add crushed tomatoes and 1/2 of the tomato reserve.
Add red pepper flakes, oregano and salt. Then stir.
Place basil with stems on the surface and let them wilt.
Lower the heat and let the sauce simmer for 15 minutes.
While the sauce is simmering, stretch and roll the dough into a 12-inch round.
When tomato base is ready, remove the stone from the oven and transfer the pizza round.
Using a ladle or large spoon, distribute the tomato mixture evenly among the center of the pie. (You won’t use all the sauce.)
Dot the pie with pieces of mozzarella and top with peppers, onion and sausage.
Place the pizza in the oven and bake for 8 minutes or until the dough has browned.
Remove from the oven and garnish with basil.
Cut into slices and serve.
