Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

Ahh my vegan chums, Vegan Pizza Day is over, but now it’s time for me to share this ridiculously good recipe with you all. This is heaven in a freshly baked dough parcel, and is so easy to make! I made the dough using my trusty bread machine, a standard pizza dough recipe. I also made the filling the day before and left both in the fridge overnight for easy Pizza Day Morning baking.


  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 of your favourite vegan chorizo sausages, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup green olives, chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 packet your favourite vegan mozzarella, grated
  • 1 serving pizza dough (from a 2lb bread machine)
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.


To prepare the filling, fry the onion, garlic and sliced sausage in olive oil until the sausage is browned. Add the tomatoes, green olives, paste and paprika. Let the mixture cook over a low heat for 10 minutes or so. Add a little water if it starts to dry out.

Chop the pizza dough into 10 equal pieces. Roll each one into a neat ball. You will then need to roll out each circle and spoon a heaped tbsp of the filling on top. Put a good helping of the mozzarella on top of the mixture and fold over, using a little soy milk if needed to help seal the edges.

Bake on greaseproof baking paper for 15 minutes. Be careful, as they will be hot as heck when you take the first chomp!
