Quick Vegan Pepperoni Tortilla Pizza

In my blog post Thursday I mentioned that I made two batches of seitan earlier in the week (don’t miss my Country Fried Seitan recipe). One batch was my vegan pepperoni sausage. I froze most of it but I stored about 8 ounces of it, in its cooking broth, in an airtight container. Last night Dave and I were feeling lazy – so lazy we didn’t even want to go out to eat – that we decided to make a quick and easy dinner together.

I crumbled the homemade vegan pepperoni in the food processor.

My omnivore husband remains shocked by how much this seitan recipe tastes like actual pepperoni!

Dave took it from there:

  • Heat the oven to 350F.
  • Place one large flour tortilla on a cookie sheet.
  • Cover the tortilla with pizza sauce and add the vegan pepperoni sausage, chopped red onion, hot peppers and vegan Daiya pepperjack shreds.
  • Place another tortilla on top, add more pizza sauce and Daiya.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.

Beautiful out of the oven!

I’m loving these tag-team dinners! Tortilla pizza isn’t a new concept; my Black-Eyed Pea & Collard Green Pizza is still a favorite.

Have you made tortilla pizza? I would love to hear your ingredient and technique ideas!

    I’ve had this same technique at Pick Me Up Cafe here in Chicago. They call them Pizzadillas! So good, and so easy to do at home! I’m gonna start making them, why not? I wonder how they’d taste with corn tortillas.
