What You'll Need

  • 1 package (12 oz) vegetarian sausages (Try Italian-style Smart Sausages)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pre-baked thin pizza crust (11-inches)
  • 3/4 cup tomato sauce

How to Make It

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.

In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add vegetarian sausages; cook 6-8 minutes or until browned. Cut into 1/2-inch rounds.

Place pizza crust on baking sheet and spread with tomato sauce, leaving a 1-inch border. Scatter sausage and artichokes on top, then sprinkle with non-dairy cheese.

Bake pizza for 12-14 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.

Remove from oven, dot with pesto; bake 2 minutes more.
