Home-made Veggie Pizza

July 12, 2009

Skip the delivery and make a healthier pizza at home! Enjoy with a salad and you’re getting loads of your daily veggies. Here’s my favorite way to whip up a pizza at home.

Pizza Dough (recipe can be found separately on this site)
Garlic powder and sesame seeds to taste
Pizza sauce of your choice (home-made or store bought)
3 cups shredded cheese (Combo’s are endless–I usually use 1 1/2 cup mozzarella, 1 cup Gouda, and 1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan. Also good with cheddar.)
3/4 cup diced red bell pepper
3/4 cup diced purple onion
3/4 cup fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced thin
3/4 cup zucchini, rinsed and sliced thin


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Spray cookie sheet with Pam cooking spray and press pizza dough into pan.
  • Spray edges of dough with Pam and generously sprinkle garlic powder and sesame seeds around crust of pizza dough.
  • Pre-bake crust 5 minutes (with no toppings)
  • Remove crust from oven and top with pizza sauce of your choice.
  • Then evenly spread red peppers, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini pieces on top of sauce.
  • Top with shredded cheese and return to oven.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes until cheese is golden brown and starting to bubble.
  • Remove pizza from oven and allow to set for 5 minutes before slicing.

    I made this crust today… My family really enjoyed it. I also made a homemade pizza sauce to top it with that they loved as well and was super simple
    1 10oz can tomato paste
    2 fresh tomatoes seeded and processed in magic bullet ( or can of diced tomatoes)
    1 clove garlic minced
    2 tablespoons dried oregano Whisk together let stand at least 1 hour.
