My fiance and I tried to make calzones for the first time tonight, and while the outcome wasn’t pretty, it was so incredibly delicious.
Mushroom and garlic tomato sauce, gardein chicken tenders (he used tofurky pepperoni) spinach, and LOTS of vegan mozzarella! :D

Every semester me and my boyfriend make a vegan pizza to kick off the first week(or thank the vegan pizza gods that I’m still alive). This one has both mozzarella/cheddar daiya, cilantro, tempeh maple bacon, yves pepperoni, mushrooms, jalapenos, and some leafy greens!

So I wanted to make a vegan pizza the other day, but every recipe that came up had all this extra work that I didn’t want to do. I don’t want to make the dough and wait 8 hours and make the sauce from scratch. I don’t want pizza because someone put a lot of time and effort into it, I just want pizza because I’m freaking hungry. So I made this pizza. It was very cheap except for the meat and cheese substitutes which aren’t even necessary.
Find a ready-to-bake pizza crust. I used this one. Make sure it is vegan by checking the ingredients as with any product you’re not sure about. This one came with 2 pizza crusts in case you have a lot of vegan friends or if you’re really really hungry and one pizza will not suffice.
Step 2: Add sauce of your choice. You don’t have to use pizza sauce. You can use anything really. I just used some spaghetti sauce I had leftover. Just make sure whatever you use is vegan (not sure why I have to remind you since I’m sure if you’re making vegan pizza you’re going to check anyway).
Step 3: Add your veggie cheese. I do this to ensure that the other toppings get cooked thoroughly and get crispier. Veggie cheese is optional and, quite frankly, really isn’t necessary.
Step 4: Add fresh basil. This step is really important because it will change the life of your pizza. You will eat the pizza and say, “Wow, that basil tastes really good on this pizza!” So this step is required.
Step 5: Add veggies of your choice. I used mushrooms, onions, shallots, and bell peppers.
Step 6: Add Tofurky pepperoni slices. Not necessary either. Drizzle with olive oil if you want.
Step 7: Bake according to pizza crust instructions. Mine was 10-12 minutes. Be sure to wait impatiently.
Step 8: Enjoy a delicious vegan pizza that didn’t require having to make the dough or sauce from scratch and take a ton of preparation when all you want is just a freaking pizza.
