Foodie Friday {Veggie Pizza}…

I am not a pizza person.  *Gasp!*  I used to be when I was kid {who wasn’t} but now I don’t eat much of it.  Unless I make it at home that is! 🙂

I don’t eat pork and most pizza toppings tend to come from that animal.  I like making pizza at home because I can make a delicious veggie style pizza with less calories. 🙂

Jennifer’s Veggie Pizza

  • Refrigerated Pizza Dough (I buy the ball of dough)


  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp italian seasoning
  • 1 Tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tsp onion powder
  • Salt & pepper


  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Veggie toppings
    • Mushrooms
    • Green peppers
    • Green olives
    • Onions
    • Sliced tomatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. With floured hands and floured surface, roll dough until 1/2″ thickness.
  3. Lightly drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper.
  4. Heat dough in oven for 5-7 minutes.  Until warm but not brown.
  5. Meanwhile, place tomato sauce and seasonings in saucepan over medium.
  6. Heat through.
  7. Remove pizza dough from oven.
  8. Spread sauce over dough.
  9. Top with cheese.
  10. Top with veggie toppings.
  11. Bake for 15 minutes until veggies are tender-crisp.
  12. Enjoy!

There are a ton of variations on toppings and tomato sauce.  We have used pesto instead of tomato sauce before.  It was fabulous!

What are you variations and ideas? 🙂  Please share!

Notes:  Prepared pizza sauce would do in place of making your own, Trader Joe’s Mozzarella cheese is the best.  

Until next time…
