Vegan Sausage and Mushroom Pizza Recipe

Guilt Free Sausage & Mushroom Pizza

vegan-sausage-pizza-recipePizza night is a weekly occurrence in my house. This amazing dairy free and meat free Sausage and Mushroom pizza packs all of the flavor with none of the guilt.

First, get yourself your favorite pizza crust, or you can make your own if you prefer. You’ll also need the following:


  • Daiya dairy free shreds in mozzarella flavor (in the organic section of Wegmans or you can find it in Deans Health Food Store or your local health food store)
  • Tomato sauce
  • Mushrooms and spinach

Sautee the mushrooms and spinach with some low sodium veggie broth and garlic. Set aside. To make the meat free crumbled sausage, follow this recipe:


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 8oz pack sliced mushrooms
  • 3 TB all purpose flour ( I used quinoa flour because I like the taste of it)
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • pinch of crushed red pepper
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 TB maple syrup

Directions: Place walnuts in food processor and pulse until a fine, crumbly meal forms. Add mushrooms, flour, basil, fennel, pinch of red pepper, salt, pepper and maple syrup. Pulse about 25 times, until mushrooms are finely chopped. Be careful not to over process, it should be crumbly and chunky.

Next, place the mixture in a large sauté pan with some fat free cooking spray, Turn frequently with the spatula, breaking up into smaller pieces as both sides begin to brown. and crisp (about 10-15 minutes)

Now that your sausage is made, prepare the pizza by placing a layer of sauce on the dough, them your veggie mixture, a layer of the dairy free mozzarella shreds and finally the crumbled sausage on top. Cook according to the directions on the pizza dough you are using.

This sausage is made of walnuts and mushrooms- so it’s full of anti-cancer nutrients, healthy omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, plant protein and more. Regular sausage is tainted meat filled with hormones, saturated fat and antibiotics. The choice is clear what we should feed our families!
