Pizza 3 Ways – #2 Vegan Pizza with Crispy BBQ “Bacon Bits” & Dee’s Sausages

13 Jun

This is the second recipe from my collection of Pizza 3 Ways. I’ve used Dee’s Sausages to make some vegan ‘bacon bits,’ which go perfectly on this delicious pizza.

This is Pizza #2 – Pizza with ‘Bacon Bits.’

You will need:
1 packet of pizza base (2 base per pack+ pizza sauce)
1 pack of Dee’s Traditional Sausages
½ tsp smoked paprika
150g vegan cheese, grated
2 red baby peppers, sliced
50-70 ml BBQ sauce
7 Sunburst yellow cherry tomatoes, halved.


Preheat oven 180-190

Start by making the vegan “bacon bits.”

Get a piece of Clingfilm and lay it on a flat surface and place the sausages on top of the cling film. Then place another sheet on top of the sausages.

Use a rolling pin to flatten out the sausages (see pic) remove the cling film and place on an oiled baking tray.

Season with salt and some smoked paprika and cook for 10-12 minutes until crispy. Slice and mix with the BBQ sauce and set aside until needed.

Next prepare the pizza. Use a whole pizza base (at this point you should have half a base left for recipe #3).

Place the pizza dough on a baking tray and add the sauce (you should have a jar left from recipe one, or use 200mls of your own sauce), cheese, sliced peppers and half the cherry tomatoes.

Bake for 12 minutes, then add the “bacon bits” and cook 5 more minutes or until golden brown.

Slice, service and enjoy – Eoin
I got the pizza pack in Tesco’s, in the refrigerated area near the puff pastry/butter.
The recipes (#1 and #3) will use the rest of the pizza dough.

    I saw these pizza bases at Tesco’s and thought I must give them a try. Thanks for sharing a great idea of how to use them.
