Plant-Based Pizza Baguette

Featured for February in our 2023 UniPro calendar.

This pizza baguette recipe is stuffed with tomato sauce, Gardein® Italian Saus’age and lots of gooey mozzarealla cheese. Brush with Earth Balance® and garlic salt for a flavorful brown crust!

Total Time: 30 Minutes         Yield: 12 Servings


Gardein® Sliced Italian. Saus’ge 1/2 package; 9 oz each
Baguette 1
Hunt’s® Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce 1/2 cup
Shredded plant-based mozzarella cheese, divided 1 cup
Earth Balance® Original Buttery Spread, melted 1 Tbsp
Garlic Salt 1/8 tsp


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Cook Saus’ge according to package directions. Crumble cooked Saus’ge into small pieces.
  2. Cut slits in baguette 1-inch apart nearly to the bottom but do not cut through. Spoon about a teaspoon of sauce into each slit and divide Saus’ge evenly into each. Stuff about half of the cheese into the slits.
  3. Brush baguette with melted Earth Balance® and sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake 8 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese over baguette and continue baking your pizza baguette until cheese melts. Serve hot with additional sauce for dipping, if desired.
