Vegan Breakfast Pizza with tofu scramble and seitan sausages

If you love breakfast foods as much as I do, then you will go crazy over this Vegan Breakfast Pizza. The pizza is topped with tomato sauce, vegan cheese shreds, tofu scramble and homemade seitan sausages.

So is it a pizza for breakfast or a breakfast-topped pizza for lunch/dinner? I’ll leave that decision up to you! I’m just saying, it’s good either way!

I’ve made almost all of the items from scratch: The pizza crust, the tofu scramble, and the seitan sausages. So everything except the vegan cheese shreds is homemade. However, you can use my Nooch Cheese Sauce instead if you don’t have store-bought cheese you like or if you want to make a vegan cheese sauce from scratch.

But this means, you can also take a few shortcuts if you want to make this pizza faster: Use store-bought pizza crust or seitan sausages to save some time.

Breakfast Pizza Toppings

Basically, you can add anything you want, but here are my favs:

  • Tofu Scramble: Tofu makes a delicious alternative for scrambled eggs – it will get its eggy taste and smell from Kala Namak.
  • Seitan Sausages: I’ve finally cracked the code for amazing seitan – make sure you check it out: Vegan Seitan Sausages. Of course, you can use store-bought veggie sausages instead to save time!
  • Additional ideas for variations: olives, sun-dried tomatoes, tempeh bacon, coconut bacon, mushrooms, spinach, kale, …

Ingredients
 
 

Ingredients for the pizza dough

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Ingredients for the tofu scramble

  • 1 1/4 cup firm tofu
  • 1 teaspoon kala namak
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil

Ingredients for the rest of the toppings

  • 1/3 cup vegan cheese shreds *
  • 1/4 cup tomato purée **
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano + more for sprinkling on top
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 seitan sausage

Instructions
 

Instructions for the pizza dough

  • Put all the dry ingredients in a kitchen machine or mix by hand, then add the wet ingredients. Stir to combine, then knead until it’s a smooth dough. Add more water if it’s too crumbly, add more flour if it’s too sticky. Let it rise covered with a clean kitchen towel until it doubles in size.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the seitan sausages according to the instructions in the post.
  • For the tofu scramble: Heat the canola oil in large pan and scramble the tofu with your hands or use a fork to do it before adding it to the pan. Add the curry powder, turmeric and kala namak. Mix well, so the tofu gets an even yellow color. Keep it on medium to high heat while stirring for about 5 minutes. Add more kala namak or spices to taste.
  • Preheat the oven to 480°F/250°C.
  • Roll out the dough until it’s a nice pizza base. At this step, I already put the pizza base on a baking tray lined with parchment paper to make things easier afterward.
  • Mix the tomato purée with the dried oregano and a pinch of salt and spread it evenly over the pizza base. Add the vegan cheese shreds over the pizza sauce. Add the tofu scramble onto the pizza and the sliced seitan sausage.
  • Bake the pizza in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. The pizza is ready when it has a golden crust. Sprinkle with oregano after baking and enjoy!

Notes

*You can use your favorite store-bought vegan cheese shreds or make my Nooch Cheese Sauce instead!
**I used store-bought tomato purée (with salt, no additional herbs) for this recipe – it’s often canned or in cartons, not to confuse with tomato paste which is thicker in consistency.

Thanks for the pics. What did you do to ensure that you had a thin crisp crust?

If you roll it out rather thinly with a rolling pin it will be crisp. You could also brush the crust with olive oil before baking to make it even crispier.

Right, I think everyone loves pizza! Except me until I was like 16. I was determined that I don't like pizza (no matter the toppings) and never ate it :D Oh man.. was I wrong :D

I saw the little thumbnail on Bloglovin and knew it was pizza, but I was not expecting breakfast pizza! This is a fun twist, getting very pizza creative. I'd happily have this as on a breakfast for dinner night too :)
