If using frozen vegan sausages defrost before using.
For the toppings, chop up the vegan sausage into roughly 7 slices per sausage. Peel and slice the red onion into half moons, cut the leek in half lengthwise and into half moons (rinse to remove any sediment) chop the courgette and pepper into small bite size pieces, dice half a red chilli (remove the seeds if you like it less spicy).
Put a large ovenproof frying pan (approx 30cm) on high heat, once hot add the oil and all the prepared veg and generous pinch of salt and sliced vegan sausages. Cook for 7-10 minutes stirring regularly until the onion and leek are nicely softened and the sausages are nicely charred. Remove the toppings from the pan to a bowl and wipe the frying pan clean.
In a separate bowl mix the sauce ingredients together.
To make your dough mix the ingredients together in another bowl and then knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 5-10 minutes until it forms a nice smooth elastic dough that is smooth to the touch. Alternatively you can mix it in a stand mixer with a dough hook for 4-5 minutes.
By hand, flatten, stretch and shape your dough to roughly the size of the frying pan (ensure the pan is oven proof – no plastic) ensuring the dough is nice and thin in the middle. Heat the empty pan over a medium heat and add 1 tsp of oil, then carefully add the dough to the pan, pushing the dough to the edges to cover the bottom of the pan. Working quickly, spread the sauce in an even layer over the dough, then scatter your topping over the sauce. Cook over the heat for 4 – 5 minutes just until the base is nicely lightly browned. Then transfer to the preheated oven at 250 degrees C for 10 minutes.
Carefully remove from the oven, the handle will be very hot.
Slide your pizza onto a cutting board slice and enjoy!
