Dairy-Free Sausage Pizza with Easy Vegan Walnut Sausage Crumble


I love creative dairy-free pizzas, and this one goes above and beyond. It’s topped with a from-scratch, walnut-based sausage that literally takes minutes to make. You don’t have to prep it ahead or cook it, just blend and top for a plant-based sausage pizza ready to pop in the oven.

Plant-Based Sausage Pizza with Easy Vegan Walnut Sausage Crumble

The flavors of the plant-based walnut sausage crumble are quite versatile. Though they pair it with pizza sauce and pesto, you could also use it on a white pizza with dairy-free alfredo. I also like to add loads of toppings. Here are some more veggie ideas for this plant-based sausage pizza:

  • Sliced Mushrooms
  • Olives
  • Diced Sweet Onion
  • Roasted Garlic or Minced Garlic
  • Diced Green Bell Pepper
  • Roasted Red Bell Peppers
  • Baby Spinach Leaves
  • Arugula
  • Minced Sun-Dried Tomatoes
  • Roasted Corn

If you load up with enough toppings, you can even go “cheese-free” for more of a flavorful flatbread experience.
