Pizza Pâté

The main flavor of Italian seasoning in this pâté reminded me of pizza, hence the name. Pâtés are great for mimicking that "meaty" feel in meatless dishes and make a great appetizer when served with crudites or crackers, or a satisfying entree when served on top of a romaine lettuce leaf or stuffed inside of a collard wrap (see this post for more ideas on how to create your own raw wrap)
