Expert Tips

*Two frozen soy-protein burgers, thawed and cut into 1/4-inch pieces, or 1/2 cup frozen soy-protein burger crumbles, thawed, can be substituted for the veggie pepperoni.

What a deal! Pizzeria-style pizza made super easy at home! Using string cheese makes stuffing the edge of the crust very simple.
