Plant-Based Pizza: 50+ Tasty Plant-Based Pizza Recipes

Seitan Sausage, Mushroom, Leek, Arugula, and Feta Pizza with Fig Balsamic Reduction

280

I created this pizza recipe around my balsamic fig reduction. The sweet acidity of the reduction balances out the salty Upton’s Naturals Italian sausage, Violife vegan mozzarella shreds, and Violife vegan feta. Check out my basic pizza crust recipe or use a store-bought crust to save time.

Seitan Sausage, Mushroom, Leek, Arugula, and Feta Pizza with Fig Balsamic Reduction
