Vegan on the Cheap – Tester Photos #2

As promised, here are a few more tester photos from Vegan on the Cheap. This time, we’re talking pizza! Homemade pizza is easy to make, versatile, and economical. In vegan on the Cheap you’ll find recipes for the luscious Tuscan White Bean Pizza (above) and the pepperoni pizza (below). (The book also has a recipe for Polenta Pizza with Roasted Vegetables). These photos were taken by Lisa who tested these recipes for me. (thanks, Lisa!)

This last photo shows the pepperoni that goes on the pepperoni pizza. (It’s great in lots of other recipes too.)

More tester photos to come soon, but next time I’ll post that brownie recipe you’ve been waiting for from Vegan on the Cheap.

    Hi there. I have your Vegan on the Cheap cookbook and have a question about the Big Stick Pepperoni recipe. After I make the recipe as directed and I chill the logs in the fridge, can I just slice the pepperoni and put it on top of my pizza and then put everything in the oven? (Can the pepperoni slices handle being in a hot oven for 10 – 15 minutes???) Or do I have to pan fry the pepperoni slices and add them to the pizza after the pizza has been fully cooked? Thanks so much.

      Great question!
      Since there is little fat in vegan pepperoni, the slices will tend to dry out in a hot oven for an extended period. That’s the reason to pan-fry the pepperoni slices before adding them to the fully cooked pizza.
      If you prefer to add the pepperoni to the pizza before it is cooked, you can simply place the pepperoni slices under the sauce and/or vegan cheese to protect it from drying out while baking. Alternatively, you can wait until the pizza is almost done baking and then add the pepperoni slices so they don’t spend too much time exposed in the oven. I hope this helps!
