  • 1 oil-free pizza crust (recipe above) or your favorite pre-made crust or dough ball
  • 1/2 TVP Pepperoni Crumbles (recipe above) or store bought pepperoni or burger crumbles
  • 3 tablespoons fig jam or preserves
  • 3/4 cup vegan mozzarella shreds
  • 2 tbsp balsamic glaze


  • Make oil-free pizza crust if using. While it's rising, make the TVP Pepperoni Crumbles if you're using.
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF or preheat your grill. Roll out crust to fit your pizza pan or grill surface (our grill surface is about the size of a 1/4 sheet pan.) If cooking on a pan instead of parchment or a grill mat, lightly sprinkle with cornmeal before putting down dough to prevent sticking.
  • Bake or grill the crust for 5 minutes or so until it's just starting to color. When we grill our crust, we don't put a lip on it and flip it before adding toppings but that isn't totally necessary if you don't want to take the step.
  • Spread the fig jam in a thin layer all over the crust. Top with vegan cheese shreds. Sprinkle the TVP Pepperoni Crumbles over the top. Return to the oven or grill and cook 5-7 more minutes until crust is cooked through and cheese starts to melt.
  • When pizza is done cooking, squeeze balsamic glaze back and forth over the top of the pizza in a ribbon. Slice and enjoy!
