  • 12 ounces Italian-style vegetarian sausages

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 (12-inch) prebaked thin pizza crust

  • 3/4 cup tomato sauce

  • 1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

  • 1 cup grated vegan mozzarella cheese substitute

  • 1/4 cup prepared vegan pesto

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 F.

  2. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add vegetarian sausages; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. Cut into 1/2-inch rounds.

  3. Place pizza crust on baking sheet and spread with tomato sauce, leaving a 1-inch border. Scatter sausage and artichokes on top, then sprinkle with non-dairy cheese.

  4. Bake pizza for 12 to 14 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.

  5. Remove from oven, dot with pesto; bake 2 minutes more.
