Ingredients

For the Vegan Egg Scramble

For the Dough

  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour (we prefer bread flour, can use all purpose)
  • 1/4 cup vegan cane sugar
  • 1 package yeast (1 package = 2 1/4 tsp)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

For the Walnut Crumbles

For The Vegan Cheese Sauce

  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 tbsp flour (sub for chickpea flour if needed)
  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk (we like oat)
  • 1/2 cup vegan cheddar shreds

For Toppings

  • 2 tbsp vegan bacon bits (most artificial bacon bits are vegan friendly or you can use any chopped vegan bacon)
  • 1/4 cup vegan mozzarella cheese shreds
  • 1/4 cup vegan cheddar cheese shreds
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • red pepper flakes, optional

Instructions

  • Drain tofu well. This usually takes about an hour, can do overnight so ready in the morning.
    To drain tofu: Use a tofu press or wrap the tofu block in a kitchen towel, place on a place and then rest a heavy bottom pot or cast iron skillet on top to remove excess water.
  • Place walnuts in a bowl and pour boiling water over top. Let sit until tofu is done draining.

For the Dough

  • In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast, cane sugar and salt. 
  • Add in the water and olive oil. Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined. 
  • Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.  Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
    *If you are oil free, then just make sure sides of bowl are floured, or use a silicone bowl to easily get it out
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.

For the Tofu Scramble

  • Once draining process has been completed, in a bowl or on a plate, mash tofu with a fork to crumble.
  • Dice onion and bell pepper.
  • To another bowl, add oat milk, melted butter, and all the seasonings (all the remaining ingredients except the oil). Set aside.
  • Add oil to a skillet over medium heat.
  • Once hot, add onions and peppers and cook 3-5 minutes, or until softened, stirring often.
  • Add in the crumbled tofu and stir around.
  • Pour in the seasoned oat milk mixture and mix well until all the tofu has been coated.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes or util the mixture has been soaked up well.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.

For the Walnut Crumble

  • After it has set in boiling water for at least 30 minutes, add the brown sugar and seasonings to a bowl and stir to blend together and set aside.
  • Drain walnuts.  Put them into a food processor and pulse until you have meat like crumbles.
    *Be careful not to over process or you will end up with walnut butter.
  •  Into a skillet, add olive oil and let heat over medium heat.
  • Add in walnut crumbles. Stir together.
  • Sprinkle seasoning across the crumbles and stir.
  • Let cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in the vegetable stock, coconut aminos and tapioca starch. Let cook for another 7-10 minutes softened and browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the Vegan Cheese Sauce

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, add the vegan butter. Let melt.
  • Whisk in the flour until well combined.
  • Carefully pour in dairy free milk whisk until the sauce has thickened.
  • Remove from heat and add vegan cheddar shreds. Whisk until shreds are melted. Set aside

For the Pizza

  • Preheat oven to 550 degrees F
  • Roll our dough into a large circle.
    *This dough can make 2 thin crusts or 1 thicker crust. If making 2 thinner crusts, then you will need to double the amount of sauce or use the second crust for a different type of pizza.
  • When ready, leaving about a half inch all around for a crust, add a thin layer of the cheese sauce to the inside.
  • Sprinkle the vegan parmesan cheese.
  • Evenly spread out the vegan egg and vegan sausage.
    *You DO NOT have to use all the ingredients on the pizza. Save it for another meal or a second pizza.
  • Top evenly with remaining toppings.
  • Cook for 7-12 minutes depending on crust thickness or until golden brown crust.
    *Carefully watch because it cooks quickly at this temperature.
