Homemade Quorn pizza is the ultimate homemade meat free vegetarian pizza! Made from delicious quorn mince with an optional spicy twist and a tasty cheddar cheese and mozzarella melted cheese topping, you’ll still think you’re eating an actual meat feast pizza when you’re not!
Folks, I was serious in the intro when I said that when eating this vegetarian Quorn pizza you could be mistaken for thinking that it was actually a spicy meat feast one! Let me explain……
You see pizza is one of our weekend treats, part of our 80/20, that Lady Lynne and I love to enjoy chilling out in front of the TV watching a film or comedy box set together. We both love a whole combination of toppings and flavours, particularly meat feast.
In our efforts to eat less red meat I suggested we just make pizza’s with chicken or vegetable toppings. Whilst that was fine, we both knew we’d soon miss our favourite meat feast one. That was until I decided to substitute Quorn for the beef mince and came up with this amazing homemade vegetarian meat feast alternative, Quorn pizza! It was like coming home!
Quorn pizza is so simple to make too.
The spicy Quorn mince mixture takes only about 15 minutes to cook and forms the topping. This is then spooned over the tomato sauce covered bases.
Then the two difference kinds of cheeses are sprinkled over the Quorn mince mixture and this is then baked in the oven until the cheese is bubbling and the crust is crispy.
The whole process shouldn’t take any longer then 30 minutes to have these delicious homemade pizza’s served fresh taking up just a fraction of your hard earned weekend and TV relaxation time!
These Quorn pizza’s would be great to have during the week as a quick and healthy family dinner option too.
A light side salad made with lettuce, cherry tomatoes and sliced red onion compliments your pizza perfectly.
In fact there’s a whole combination of side dishes that could go with your pizza, not just a salad but steamed vegetables like broccoli or Roast Summer Vegetables.
Although I’ve just made a pretty basic (but exceptionally tasty) Quorn pizza here, there’s so many other flavour and topping combinations you could add to the Quorn mince. Just stir these suggested toppings into the Quorn mince after cooking and before you top the pizza.
Suggested Toppings For Your Homemade Quorn Pizza
- Halved cherry tomatoes and cubes of feta cheese.
- Chopped green pepper, sweetcorn and mushrooms.
- If you want to change this from being a vegetarian Quorn pizza then maybe add some slices of pepperoni or chopped chicken.
Homemade Quorn Pizza Recipe
I used shop bought pizza bases here for convenience, but if you want to make your own homemade pizza dough it’s easier than you might think! It does take a little longer, yes but it’s certainly worth the effort for a 100% homemade pizza! You could also use flatbreads for thinner tastier and healthier base.
