This Recipe was Awarded 2nd Place in
1 16-ounce package refrigerated pizza crust dough
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into small chunks or thin strips
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into small chunks or thin strips
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons yellow mustard, you can use any kind you like
1 1/2 cups shredded vegan cheddar cheese (I used Daiya)
1 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast, gives the crust a cheesey flavor and browns nicely
1 small tomato, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees
In a large skillet, combine the peppers and onions. Cook over medium heat until the vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat. Next, add the thawed vegan burger chunks or crumbles and cook until combined and browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside for assembly.
Use your already pre-cooked dough and spread the ketchup and mustard over the pizza crust. Top with the vegan beef , veggie mixture, vegan bacon (if desired), and vegan cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste (optional). Drizzle with a little oil (2 Tbsps or so) Bake until the crust is browned and the cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
