sliced raw vegetables for vegan pizza

Vegan Sausage Pizza

Comfort food in the best way! The vegan sausage adds some substance, the red bell pepper adds a beautiful color, and the fresh basil is the perfect garnish. Additionally, using vegan sausage makes this pizza kosher since you are not combining meat and dairy. (Pro Tip: You can flip it around and use real sausage and vegan cheese, instead.)


  • 1 Dare to Be Different Cauliflower Crust
  • 3/4 cup Vegan Sausage , crumbled or roughly chopped (or sub store-bought plant-based sausage of choice)
  • 1 cup favorite marinara / red sauce (or store-bought)
  • 3-4 Tbsp Ricotta Cheese or store-bought vegan cheese (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp oil (such as olive or avocado)
  • 4-6 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp oil (or sub water but double the amount)
  • 1 ½ cups sliced raw vegetables (we like red bell pepper and red onion)
  • 1 healthy pinch salt
  • 1 healthy pinch dried oregano
