This was really yummy!!! I did have to change things a bit because of what I had on hand in my fridge. I substituted soyrizo for soy bacon, as my hubby doesn't like the soy bacon. That made it extra "zippy". Also, I used diced tomatoes instead of sauce. I also added some granulated onion to the crust. I also added olives as I love olives. I also thought o adding zucchini, but want to make the roasted veggie sandwiches with white bean spread and didn't have enough to do both. And don't forget the meltable soy mozarella for the finishing touch. I just thought the crust idea was phenomenal! I had problems with the food processor, as it didn't process the whole thing. I finally just took it out of the processor and "mashed" everything all together with hands. Hey, the original food processors work just fine! *LOL* Hope you try it and ifn your favorites to add, too. It's filling and goes well with watermelon for dessert. Hey, it's summer and I love it! (almost summer, okay)

This was pretty tasty. I didn't want to use pre-made polenta, so I made polenta from scratch and it was still an easy recipe. Added parsley and used red & orange pepper. Yum.
