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.

I’d love to hear what you think of my recipe in the comments below and please do rate my recipe if you like it! 🙂

  1. This pizza looks perfect, Neil! We often make pizza on the weekends, and we’ve missed the last couple of weekends due to other things…so that means this weekend is pizza weekend! We don’t have Quorn over here in the States, but I might just sub in lean ground beef instead. (I just picked up a huge bag of 90/10 ground beef on super sale.) It would be kinda like a cheeseburger pizza! 🙂 Weekends are the reason for the 80/20 rule, and I’m all about our weekend treats! I hope you and Lynne have a wonderful Easter weekend, my friend. Cheers!

      I absolutely agree that the weekend is the best time for a pizza David! Hope you enjoy your weekend too and get a chance to make that amazing sounding “cheeseburger pizza”! 😀

  2. Well this is something I’v e never seen! I need to see if I can locate some. I used to use a wonderful product called soy granules that I’d add to meat just to stretch it. I’m not against meat, but while raising my kids I made super healthy meals, and the soy granules added nutrition and fiber to the meat. Plus it looked like the ground meat.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Quorn is a fantastic meat substitute product if you can get it where you are Mimi. Otherwise there’s always Soy Mince, which I think might be what you’re referring to?

      And like you, we’re not against meat at all, we just keep mostly to white meats like turkey, chicken and fish.

  3. Well, now you’ve done it. Now I’m craving pizza so bad! I haven’t heard of Quorn so I’m looking forward to trying it out! I love me some red meat but I’m cutting back on it too. I love plain cheese pizza but at least with the addition of Quorn, you get a little protein boost! Awesome post! Have a great weekend 🙂

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      The weekends were made for Pizza Christina (with Beer 😉 ). I’m not sure if you can get Quorn in the U.S. yet, but you could try this with Soy Mince. Basically you’re looking for a vegetarian replacement for ground beef. Have a smashing Easter weekend. Hope you get some relaxing time to chill. Or even better maybe you’re away filming another hike for us to enjoy? 🙂

  4. Oh I’ve never got a chance to top my pizza with quorn. The recipe sounds super interesting and your pizza looks absolutely gorgeous. I need to cook this recipe asap, I am tempted!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Neha, and if you love a meat feast pizza, you will honestly notice very little difference with substituting the meat with Quorn instead! 🙂

  5. I love little personal pizzas!! I would probably want to eat three of them though cause this girl’s appetite is just way too big for her own good LOL!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I can’t disagree with you there GiGi. Pizza is one of those things that everybody loves don’t they? 😉
