Roasted Vegetable Pizza Recipe

Guest Author - Brandii Lacey

Pizza has long been a kid favorite meal. Instead of ordering pizza in, why not try your own healthy version with your kids? Substituting low fat cheese and a few vegetables cuts down on the calories, fat, and sodium, but not the taste!

Creating pizzas together is the perfect recipe for cooking with your kids. If your family has different tastes, simply divide the pizza dough in half or thirds, and then place the toppings accordingly.

Ingredients:
  • 1 can of refrigerated pizza dough

  • 1 jar of your favorite pizza sauce

  • 2 cups of low fat shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 3 green or red bell peppers chopped

  • 1 large onion peeled and diced

  • 1 box of fresh mushrooms, washed and diced

  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil

  • 2 Tablespoons of chopped fresh basil

  • 2 Tablespoons of fresh oregano

  • 1 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes with green chilies

Directions:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Spray a cookie sheet or pizza pan with a non stick cooking spray. If you don't have either, overlap two sheets of tin foil to create one large “sheet”.

  3. Sprinkle a layer of cheese on the pizza dough.

  4. Spread a layer of pizza sauce over the cheese.

  5. Add the chopped onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, basil, and oregano to the pizza dough.

  6. Add the remaining cheese, and top with the diced tomatoes and chilies.

  7. Bake at 400 degrees for thirty minutes, or until pizza is cooked throughout.

Recipe Tips:
  • This recipe calls for refrigerated pizza dough. However, tortillas or English muffins will work just as well.

  • No matter what crust you use, this pizza can be baked in the oven or on the grill.

  • If desired, add some fresh grilled chicken to the pizza.

  • Pizza making parties are a fun and budget friendly party idea. Simply place the pizza toppings in separate bowls, and provide each guest a round slice of pizza dough. Set everything up assembly line style, and let your guests create their own pizza masterpieces as they work their way down the table.
