How do you make vegan Pepperoni pizza sliders?

The most important question of all! Let me quickly walk you through the instructions on how to make these the cheesiest, and easiest pepperoni pizza sliders you will ever make.

… Set the oven to bake at 350 degrees F. They will be baking on a lower heat for about 15-20 minutes to get that perfectly golden brown pizza crust.

… on a baking sheet, cut the entire loaf of buns in half, and add vegan fresh mozzarella to the bottom half. In a food processor, mix together your tomato sauce, protein (I used Gusta Foods Seitan Sausage for higher protein content), parmesan, herbs and blend to combine.

… all that’s left to do is add more vegan mozzarella or your favourite vegan cheese (I used Daiya Foods vegan cheese shreds), and top with garlic button and foil before baking.
