Veggie Pizza

Hey there! If you occasionally like to indulge in less-than-nutritionally-perfect meals, this one is definitely for you! While it’s still a comfort food, this pizza is totally homemade and loaded with delicious veggie toppings.

Prepare the homemade pizza dough crust (see recipe here). Meanwhile, prepare toppings.

Caramelized Onions

Ingredients:

  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 4 tbsp vegan butter
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar

In a large sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter and then add onions, letting them cook for 10 minutes, stirring every minute or so. When onions are translucent, add brown sugar and cover, cooking for another 10 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached.

Tomatoes

Finely slice 3-4 large tomatoes and set aside.

Roasted Bell Peppers

Ingredients:

  • 2 large bell peppers, any color, sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dried basil
  • salt and pepper

In a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil and then add the bell pepper slices. Cook on each side until some color appears. Turn heat down to medium-low, adding basil, salt, and pepper and stir. Cover with lid and let simmer for 5-7 minutes.

Sautéed Spinach

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cups fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

In a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add spinach and cover until wilted, stirring occasionally, about 5-7 minutes. Add salt and pepper.

To Prepare Pizza: After baking your pizza dough on one side, flip over in the same pan (so the dough cooks evenly) and start layering toppings on. I started with the caramelized onions, then tomatoes, bell peppers, and finally sautéed spinach. I finished with a non-dairy cheese. Bake in the oven until cheese has fully melted and crust has browned (about 15-20 minutes).
