Veggie Pizza Ingredients

  • Olive oil or spray
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 red or bell pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 beefsteak tomato
  • 1 pizza dough (pre-made from a pizza place or supermarket)
  • 1 cup parmesan
  • 1 ball of fresh mozzarella or 2 cups of shredded mozzarella
  • Basil (to taste)

To start you should prep all of the ingredients for your veggie pizza.

Prepping your ingredients ahead of time is a key way to make the cooking process easier because it will already be done as you follow the recipe.

  • Spray/coat a baking sheet in olive oil (Choosing a round or rectangle baking sheet is your choice.)
  • Cut the yellow squash into chunks
  • Cut the zucchini into chunks
  • Cut/mince the garlic clove
  • Cut the eggplant into chunks (You should also peel it in advance if you prefer not to eat the skin.)
  • Cut the red/bell pepper into strips and then into chunks
  • Cut the yellow pepper into strips and then into chunks
  • Cut the broccoli **Beginner Tip** You can cut the broccoli with your kitchen sheers if cutting it with a knife is too difficult.
  • Cut the onion into small pieces (You can choose to saute the onion instead of roasting it for a different flavor.)
  • Cut the tomato into chunks
  • Cut the basil
  • Cut or measure the mozzarella you choose to use
  • Measure out the parmasean

Now that you are prepped and ready, it is time to start putting your veggie pizza together!

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F
  • Stretch out the pizza dough and lay it on the pan
  • On another oiled pan, put all of the cut veggies and coat in salt and pepper to taste.
  • Next, coat the veggies in olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. We tend to go light on the oil to help the veggies brown and crisp up. If you go too heavy on the oil, the veggies will get soggy. They will taste yummy no matter what, so choose what you like best and run with it!
  • Roast the veggies for about 15 minutes or until they brown and crisp/soften.
  • Take out the veggies halfway through and mix them to make sure everything roasts evenly.
  • Take the veggies out of the oven and turn the heat up to 500 F.
  • Place into a bowl and set it aside for a minute. Sprinkle half the parmasean cheese onto the crust.
  • Next, put all of the veggies onto the pizza dough and lightly drizzle olive oil over the veggies.
  • Then sprinkle the cheese and basil over the veggies.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and the remainder of the parmasean over the pizza
  • Bake at 550 F until the crust browns and the cheese gets bubbly! Usually, about 15 – 20 minutes depending on how well-done you want your pizza.
  • Cut and enjoy!

Pizza is so yummy and adding veggies to it makes it that much better! There is some prep with this, but it is so worth it when you bite into it and it tastes like you are eating out without spending what it takes to eat out! You can prep it on the weekend and plan to make it during the week as a quick pre-prepped dinner!
