This is a great last minute sauce that gets made with pantry ingredients. All you need is some frozen or canned pumpkin, tomato paste, water and a few dried spices. This is also an easy treat on a snow day when you don’t feel like going to the store.
Use English muffins as you base or a proper pizza crust. Top with your favorites like vegan sausage crumbles, chopped olives, bell pepper, and some non-dairy mozzarella like Daiya.
