Veggie pizza

20 03 2008

We like our pizza in this household, be it delivered sneakily after the kids go to bed or our own homemade version. Once a week Steve and I take it easy by feeding the kids and putting them to bed a little early. Then we order some type of delivery and hunker down to watch a movie. It’s like a mini date night and I love it. Other nights we make our own for the whole family. Here’s the recipe for a no sauce veggie pizza we like to indulge in. It’s based off a pizza our friend Rebecca used to make.


  • Purchased or homemade crust – here we’re using Pillsbury’s pizza crust in a tube, but we’ve made our own and used a number of purchased premade varieties.
  • 1 small tomato, chopped (de-seed 1st if your so inclined)
  • 1/2 a small zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 a sweet bell pepper, chopped – here I used an orange one, but any color will do
  • goat cheese
  • mozzarella
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  1. Prepare/make crust
  2. Scatter veggies across crust
  3. Dollop goat cheese here and there
  4. Sprinkle mozzarella across – not too much, just enough to hold the veggies on
  5. Sprinkle with oregano and pine nuts
  6. Bake according to crust directions – usually about 10 to 15 minutes
  7. Enjoy!

While I’m not an advocate of making children a different meal than the adults on a normal basis. This is one case were it’s not too big of a deal. It’s next to impossible to convince Seth to eat large chunks of vegetables interspersed with dollops of goat cheese so we cut a little crust off and made him a more traditional pepperoni pizza.

What did Eleanor eat? Pureed fresh avocado. Yum! If there had been any tortilla chips on hand I’m not sure it would have gotten to her highchair.

We love our pizza too! So does Felix! We give ourselves one night a week to order pizza but I LOVE homemade pizza too. We get our vegetables from a CSA so we don’t have great pizza veggies at the moment…but we had zucchini last week so it won’t be long! I have a great recipe for a quick and easy homemade crust (if you’re interested) that I have been using for years!

Yum, yum, yum. Especially Eleanors dish. Though it probably could have used some onion, tomato, lime, cilantro and a margarita. But she’s a bit young for that. Yum.

Ellie – but of course we can have it in April!

Sarah – Yes, I would love a good crust recipe. We’ve tried a few but I haven’t been completely satisfied with any of them. Also, we get our veggies in summer from a CSA too! Unfortunately that’s a long way off. I can’t wait.
