Ingredients
Makes 1 x 12” pizza

For the vegan nduja:
3oz (90g) cooked vegetarian sausages
0.7oz (20g) refined coconut oil
1.6oz (45g) harissa paste
1 tbsp maple syrup
Salt

For the garlic & herb drizzle:
4 tbsp mayonnaise (or vegan mayo)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
½ tsp dried basil 
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp dried parsley
½ tsp sea salt

For the pizza:
5.6oz (160g) Classic Pizza Dough (see note below)
4 tbsp Classic Pizza Sauce (see note below)
1.4oz (40g) mozzarella, torn into small pieces
2oz (60g) butternut squash, peeled, roasted & cubed
Quarter red onion, finely sliced
2oz (60g) vegan nduja, sliced
Pine nuts
A few basil leaves
Garlic & herb drizzle

Method
Prepare your pizza dough ahead of time. To make a 12" pizza, we recommend preparing pizza dough balls that are 5.6oz (160g) each – our guide to making the perfect Classic Pizza Dough covers everything you need to know.

For the sauce for this pizza, we recommend preparing our easy Classic Pizza Sauce. With a hint of garlic, salt and basil, it's the ideal pizza sauce that will help to bring out the flavors in the other ingredients used here.

Prepare the garlic & herb drizzle. In a bowl, combine the lemon, mayo, garlic and salt. Add the herbs, crushing them with your fingers as they’re added to release their fragrance. Mix until well combined, then decant into a condiment bottle and leave for a few hours to infuse in the fridge.

Next, prepare the vegan nduja. In a bowl, add all the ingredients and combine using your hands until well mixed. Place the mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap and wrap up into a ball, twisting off the end to seal it. Refrigerate for one hour. 

Fire up your Ooni 3, Ooni Pro or Ooni Koda. Aim for 932˚F (500˚C) on the stone baking board inside. You can check the temperature inside your oven quickly and easily using the Ooni Infrared Thermometer.

Using a small amount of flour, dust your Ooni Pizza Peel. Stretch the pizza dough ball out to 12 inches and lay it out on your pizza peel.

Top the pizza base with the pizza sauce, roast butternut squash, vegan nduja, mozzarella and red onion.

Slide the pizza off the peel and into your Ooni pizza oven, making sure to rotate the pizza regularly.

Once cooked, remove the pizza from the oven. Finish with the pine nuts, and as much of the garlic & herb drizzle as you like. Serve hot!
