Vegetarian Pepperoni Pizza Chili may sound like it can't exisit, but with some creativity and delicious meatless substitutes, you can make a chili that tastes just like a pepperoni pizza.
One of my closest friends is a vegetarian and one thing she constantly talked about missing is pepperoni pizza. That was until she found a really delicious meatless pepperoni (made by LightLife) and now she can enjoy her favorite food whenever she wants. So when I kew she was coming over to watch the football game, I couldn't resist but make a vegetarian version of the pepperoni pizza I love so much. Since she doesn't mind vegetarian meat products, I used both the crumbles and pepperoni. However you could easily replace the crumbles with beans if you don't like to use soy products or vegetarian meat substitutes.
