Quick and Easy Recipe: Pizza Recipe for Vegetable Pizza

Makes 1 large pizza

* I use the largest pizza pan because it makes a bigger pizza so there are always leftovers and by stretching the dough out, we end up with a thinner crust pizza


  • Pizza dough (homemade or store bought)
  • Pesto sauce - few tablespoons fresh or prepared
  • 1 can Trader Joe's artichoke hearts rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup or so of Kalamata olives drained, cut in half
  • Trader Joe's grilled asparagus spears
  • 1/2-3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2-3/4 cup sliced mushrooms (I used Trader Joe's frozen)
  • Fresh spinach
  • 1/2-1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese if desired - 1/8 cup


  1. If using homemade pizza crust, make sure pizza dough is thawed and is at room temperature for about an hour. 
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Spread dough on lightly greased pizza pan dusted with a wee bit of cornmeal.  I use 1 portion of pizza dough and stretch it to fit a very large pizza pan.  This gives you a delicious but thin pizza crust.  Just be mindful of it not cooking too quickly if you have made a thin crust.
  4. Use a couple tablespoons of pesto sauce to spread/smear on the pizza crust.  I added just enough to create a background flavor of garlic and basil.
  5. Sprinkle feta cheese over pizza crust.
  6. Using shears or cutting with a knife, chunk up the artichoke hearts and place on pizza crust.
  7. Next do the same with kalamata olives and mushrooms.
  8. Cut asparagus spears into smaller pieces and arrange between other vegetables and olives. 
  9. Sprinkle with grated fresh Parmesan if desired.
  10. Dot with spinach leaves - fresh or frozen thawed or thawing.
  11. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  12. Bake in oven for 15 minutes plus but check to make sure cheese is melting but not scorching.
  13. Let sit for 5 or so minutes, then slice and enjoy!
  14. This pizza was delicious with a light pinot gris!

Another Great Vegetable Pizza Recipe

If you have the time to make your own dough, try my great recipe for pizza dough that I make in my KitchenAid mixer. I adapted it from the recipe in Cooking Light magazine so that I would not have to knead it by hand.

This recipe freezes fantastically. I spray freezer bags with cooking spray, then slip half of the recipe into the freezer bags. When I need a piece of dough, I just let it thaw in the refrigerator and then bring to room temp before using. This dough has fabulous flavor and is a great background for your pizzas.

You can also purchase bags of pizza dough at your local Trader Joe's or of course buy fresh or frozen doughs in many forms.

For something really unique, use phyllo dough for the crust. See my great recipe for phyllo dough pizza as well for ideas on toppings. You can use phyllo dough to improvise a crust for a round pizza as well. You just need to overlap layers of phyllo dough and trim to fit the pizza pan.  It makes for a deliciously light crust (in terms of taste and calories).

Let imagination be your guide when it comes to toppings for vegetable pizzas. You can also divide the dough into halves or thirds and make personal pizzas. These make great lunch or brunch treats or is a great way to please everyone in terms of the vegetables that you use on each one.

Pizza can be wonderfully creative project for people of all ages. See what great combos you can come up with. I usually look at the pizza recipes that are popular on the Internet every once in a while, note any favorites and then go on to make my own creations with ingredients I like best.

If you try to use mostly fresh ingredients or homemade ingredients, you can control the fat, sugar and sodium in your pizza and you can make your pizzas in less time than it takes to order them over the phone and have them delivered!

Hope you enjoy my quick and easy recipe for vegetable pizza.
