I saw a post for BBQ chicken pizza that looked delish…if you eat chicken. Since we don’t, I decided to do something similar with one of my favorite vegan protein sources: tempeh. I love using different sauces on pizza instead of just regular ‘ol tomato sauce, and love the zip and spice of the Trader
