I ate this glorious pizza nearly three weeks ago, but sitting here looking at these pictures has me drooling all over again. All that delicious melty Daiya… the fresh veggies, the meatballs… and look at all the oregano and crushed red pepper on there! Divine!

I’d go on a date with this pizza, and I’d make out with it SO HARD. I’m in love.

Ok, so maybe “love” is too strong a word (and “lust” would probably be a little weird), but I’m really into this pizza. I hadn’t had a sausage pizza since I went vegetarian back in ’08, but a couple months ago I saw one on a menu somewhere. It wasn’t vegan so I had to wait and recreate it at home, but it was 100% worth it. And obvs you can make it with sausage or meatballs and it’s yummy either way.

If you used to be into meaty pizzas, you simply must try this. Leave work, and go to your nearest grocery store for supplies. Go home and bake the pizza, then shovel it into your foodhole.  There will be plenty of time to thank me afterward :)

    We just ate a pizza with Daiya yesterday. It’s the best! I love peppers on my pizza, so this looks amazing! :)

    This sounds like a perfect recipe for a lazy weekend get-together. Although perhaps not something one would eat frequently, I think there is a place in any healthy-food based diet for an occasional treat such as this pizza. … especially if served with a cold beer!

      I agree… especially the part about the cold beer! :)

    Hi there, only just discovered your lovely site today, and I’ll be following. I’m wondering what meatballs you’ve used, I don’t see you mentioning, can you enlighten me? We have a hard time getting proper ingredienses here (Denmark), but things are improving. Badly need the Daiya.

      Hi Deborah, I use Nate’s brand, or Trader Joe’s. They’re actually exactly the same, just marketed under two different names. Hope that helps!
