This roasted garlic sweet potato crust recipe has been a big hit! Many of you have commented how much you adore this pizza crust and have shared so many cool ways to top your pizza. Seeing all of these wonderful pie creations has left me craving more. Pizza is really fun in that way because you can throw the “kitchen sink” on a pizza and chances are that it will turn out delish.
For the superbowl, I decided to really gourmet this pizza up and make a delicious Roasted Pepper, Sausage, and Mushroom Pizza. I wanted it to resemble a pizza you find in a fancy osteria. This pizza is so flavorful and beautiful, it will win over even your hard core meat loving friends and family. It sure wowed mine!
This pizza all started with the roasted garlic sweet potato crust. I brushed it with olive oil and piled the toppings. To make the sausage, I used the Tempeh Sausage Crumble recipe from Post Punk Kitchen. It is perfect for “meatifying” a vegan pizza.
For color and flavor, I added roasted mini peppers and cherry tomatoes. I used the toaster oven for roasting them and it only took about 20 minutes to reach perfection. The mushrooms and spinach got a quick saute in oil before making it on the pizza. For the finale, I drizzled truffle oil for extra flavor and sprinkled it with vegan parmesan cheese.
