I’ve never been a sausage pizza fan, it was actually the one thing I always say I don’t want on pizza. Yet here I am sharing a Vegan Sausage Neapolitan Pizza recipe with you and honestly if I was hungry enough could have ate the whole pizza it’s that good!

I almost didn’t want to share this recipe with you because the sausage I used is in high demand and shelves are pretty much empty and have been since it came out earlier this year but if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on some Beyond Meat Italian Sausage (Mild or Spicy) do it! This isn’t a sponsored post I just love it which is so funny and crazy. I was lucky enough to pick up a few packages when it was in stock and since I’m down to the last 2 packages and using them sparingly using just one sausage from the package to make this pizza was my genius idea and so worth it.

I just hope it’s back in stock soon because I can only make 6 more of these Vegan Sausage Neapolitan Pizzas! Or anything for that matter as I also liked it sliced on pasta. I broke out the last package we used up when we had homemade pasta night.

Our homemade Neapolitan Pizzas are one of the most requested meals when people come over along with our homemade pasta, sourdough, and desserts. Family, friends, and the girls friends love them and it’s so much fun to make them as everyone gets to customize their own. There is one rule though, as it can be hours of making pizzas depending on how many people are here as each takes about 10 minutes and we’ve had 20+ people/pizzas before, when your pizza comes off the grill and is cut take what you want because after that it’s fair game. I’m not a fan of this rule and may have put this whole pizza on my plate when we made it again last Friday. Ok I didn’t only half but wanted to.

Instructions
  1. If making our Neapolitan Pizza Crust if using, you will have to make the dough 3 hours, 4 hours is best, ahead of time. It doesn’t take long to make you just have to let it rest and rise.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the ingredients to make the Sriracha Drizzle. Place in the fridge until your pizza is cooked.
  3. Heat grill or oven, with pizza stone placed inside, to 550F if using my husband’s crust recipe otherwise heat per your pizza crust directions.
  4. Cook sausage if you haven't already done so, see notes.
  5. Toss or roll your pizza dough and place on a piece of parchment paper on a non rimmed baking sheet.
  6. Add sauce to the crust leaving about a half inch boarder around the edge.
  7. Brush the outside boarder of the crust with olive oil if desired and sprinkle with a pinch of garlic or sea salt.
  8. Top with sausage slices, onions, and peppers.
  9. Grate or crumble cheese and sprinkle over pizza.
  10. Place pizza, keeping it on the parchment as it will easily slide on and off your pizza stone, onto the pizza stone. Check at 6 minutes, the crust should start to be golden brown and slightly blackened on the outer edges like a traditional Neapolitan pizza. It can take up to 8-10 minutes depending on the temperature of your grill/oven. If using your own crust bake per your crusts instructions.
  11. Remove pizza, sliding a baking sheet under the parchment paper.
  12. Let pizza cool a minute or two before slicing.
  13. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I like to cook my Beyond Meat Italian Sausage, slice, and then put the slices back in the cast iron pan for 20-30 seconds per side to make them crispy.

To make our simple sauce we take canned fire roasted tomatoes and pulse them for 30 seconds in a mini food processor. Adding garlic or salt to taste depending on tomatoes used.

If using Fresh VeganMozz it will crumble into pieces when fresh, if I have leftovers I place it in the freezer and the next time use a large hole grater to grate the cheese over the pizza.

  1. In my opinion you can never go wrong with Pizza and this looks delicious. I am usually not a sausage fan either but this sounds like a game changer.

  3. Adding in the vegan sausage is a great way to bump up the protein. The meatless varieties are so much tastier than they used to be

    I’ll have to look for this sausage – I love the taste of reg sausage but my tummy doesn’t process it AT ALL.

      I’ve been able to handle this one well. Hopefully you can find it soon it’s been out of stock. There is a Spicy Italian, Sweet Italian, and Brats.

  5. YUMM! THe crust looks fabulous as does the vegan sausage!
