Match Meat Pizza
It’s another #MeatlessMonday!! But wait you say, it’s Thursday! That’s true, it is Thursday, but I’ve been pretty lax in my support of #MeatlessMonday the past few weeks and I wanted to get back in the swing of things. So all this week, we’re doing meatless recipes. (By the way, next week will be a celebration of all thing seafood in honor of lent and the sacrifices made around the world by Catholics everywhere.)
Anyhoo, this recipe is pretty simple. I included it for two reasons. First, it’s a simple. It’ s not quick due to the fact I’ve included a whole wheat crust recipe, but that can easily be replaced by something store bought.
Secondly, it’s vegan.
Match Meat Pizza Recipe
Yep, vegan. How do I make it vegan? Well, first use vegan sugar in the dough. Then, don’t use cheese.
I know what you’re thinking, what is pizza without cheese? Delicious!!! That’s what. Even though I’m no longer vegan, I still order pizza this way because I get to taste the toppings and the sauce instead of the cheese. So try it. Even if you are a huge cheese lover, it’s worth a try.
Especially if you use good toppings like Match Italian sausage (which they sent me), veggies, etc. You’ll never miss the cheese. And if you use Match, you’ll never miss the meat, either!
You will need:
The stuff for this pizza crust from AllRecipes.com (I know, I know, but my wife loves the recipe.)
- 1 package Match meat
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flake
- Salt to taste
- Onions, sliced
- Black Olives
Make the crust.
Keep the oven at 350.
In one skillet, brown the Match meat. I tend to find the Match meat needs a little oil to get it going since it’s not very fatty like say real sausage so if I am making it, I add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet, get it hot, and then brown the sausage. Mrs. WellDone does not.
In a sauce pan, add the tomato sauce and spices to the sauce and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Construct the pizza without the cheese and bake until the toppings are warm.
Slice and eat. Enjoy!
