Homemade Veggie Pizza Recipe

We’ve entered the season of warm comfort food. Soups, Stews, roast meat, etc. And sometimes all that heavy food seems . . . well . . . heavy. 

Homemade Veggie Pizza

Just about everyone loves pizza, myself included. However, traditional restaurant pizza is generally made with refined (white) flour, and loaded with saturated fat and sodium – things that can quickly lead to weight gain and harm your health. To make pizza something I can feel good about eating regularly, I’ve found ways to make my own healthier versions. The key is using whole grains, less cheese and loading up on lots of healthy veggies and herbs. Also eating produce that’s in season helps you save money and also ensures you are getting a good variety of foods and nutrients.


This pizza included some of my favorite veggies and herbs: carrots, red onion, broccoli, corn, green or red pepper, olives and fresh basil.  The ingredients only required about 20 minutes of prep time, starting with chopping the veggies and tossing them in a little olive oil for roasting.  Adding a fresh herbs to the veggies adds nice flavor (and makes your kitchen smell amazing during cooking!).

In addition to its great taste, winter veggies especially broccoli  is  the good sources of dietary fiber and rich in magnesium. Broccoli is loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and numerous vitamins and minerals including magnesium, fol-ate and fiber which are good for health.

While my super-food veggies were roasting I gathered and prepped my other ingredients. The dough only required a thin spread of pizza sauce and cheese to provide creamy texture and cheesy flavor.

The veggies were done once they were slightly crisped and fork-tender, and I spooned them over the dough. I finished the pizzas off by topping them with the Mozzarella cheese, olives and a sprinkle of herbs.

The last step involves popping the pizzas in the oven – I chose to make veggie pizzas  in individual mini pizza pans. They only needed about 15 minutes to cooked the dough and for the cheese to melt. I loved the contrast of the cheese, olives and herbs with the crunch from the veggies on this flavorful pizza!
