Simple Seasoned Tomato Sauce
- 1 cup commercial tomato sauce
- 1 Tbs. Italian seasoning
- 1 12- to 14-inch pizza crust
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- 4 oz. soy "ground beef"
- 2 soy "sausage" links, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 8 oz. shredded soy mozzarella
- 12 slices soy "pepperoni"
- 6 slices soy "Canadian bacon"
Preheat oven to 450F. Prebake fresh pizza crust, if using, for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven, and set aside to cool slightly.
To make Simple Seasoned Tomato Sauce: Combine tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Set aside.
To make “Meat” Topping: Heat 1 teaspoon oil in large skillet over medium-high heat, and saut8E “ground beef” and “sausage” links for about 3 minutes, or until hot and slightly crispy. Using a spatula, remove “meat” from pan, add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to skillet and saut8E onions for 3 minutes, or until translucent. Add Simple Seasoned Tomato Sauce, and stir. Remove from heat.
Spread sauce mixture over pizza crust. Top with “ground beef,” “sausage,” cheese, “pepperoni” and “Canadian bacon” slices.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and serve.
The flavorful, slighty salty “meats” atop this pizza need a big Italian red. The Torre del Bardo Super Tuscan makes an excellent beverage choice.
