Pizza Friday – The Best Veggie Pizza

by Tracey

Friday Night Veggie Pizza

Welcome back to another Pizza Friday! Where I share a new pizza recipe that is so good, you’ll never want to order pizza again!!

Eating the same pizza flavor combo can get boring, but I know from first hand that it can be difficult to branch out and try new pizza recipes that taste delicious! 

Friday Night Veggie Pizza

This Friday, we are making the best veggie pizza! This was the first pizza I ever made, and it became an instant hit and go-to.  Friends and family always request this pizza because it’s super flavorful and loaded with tons of veggies. If you are looking for a simple and delicious pizza to add to your family’s pizza night, then this pizza should be on the menu!

The sauce is super simple too, and I guarantee you have everything you need in your pantry:

  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Red Chili Flakes

For the veggies, I would pick your favorites. Our favorites include:

  • Tomatoes
  • Baby broccoli
  • Sweet peppers
  • Yellow squash
  • Topped with spinach and basil right before serving.

Roasting veggies are my favorite. They develop tons of flavor, and the edges get crunchy. So, it only made sense that this pizza would be an instant hit.

Friday Night Veggie Pizza and Chardonnay

Wine Pairings Ideas:

We selected an Unoaked Chardonnay to pair with this veggie pizza.  The gentle notes of citrus and herbs complement the flavors of the roasted veggies perfectly.

The wine we selected is from Hundley Cellars, located within the Grand River Valley Wine Region in Ohio.  Any Unoaked Chardonnay that you have will also pair nicely with this pizza. 

Don’t forget to make the best overnight pizza dough to go with your pizza Fridays!  I hope you love this pizza! Enjoy!

Description

The best veggie pizza to make at home! Simple ingredients, easy to make, and super tasty!


Scale

Ingredients

  1. Pizza dough, homemade or storebought 
  2. 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. pinch of salt and pepper
  5. pinch of red chili flakes (optional)
  6. 3 Campari tomatoes (we get our tomatoes from Costco), cut into thin slices
  7. 1 Baby Broccoli head, cut into florets
  8. 34 small sweet peppers, cut into slices
  9. 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into cubes (4 ounces)
  10. 46 pieces of fresh basil, chopped

Instructions

  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat the oven to 550 degrees F or as high as it can get. You want your oven as hot as possible. 
  2. Prepare pizza dough.  If your dough was in the fridge, bring the dough to room temperature about 30 minutes before rolling it out. If your dough is ready, flour the surface and flour a rolling pin to roll the dough from the center to the edges until the circle is about half an inch thick.  Once fully rolled out, place parchment paper on your pizza peel, gently pick up the dough, and lay it on top. 
  3. In a small bowl, mix the minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, and red chili flakes.
  4. Using a silicone pastry brush, gently add the garlic olive oil mixture on top of the pizza dough.
  5. Assemble the pizza by adding the sliced tomatoes, baby broccoli, sweet peppers, and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly on top. 
  6. Gently slide pizza onto the pizza stone and bake for about 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.  If needed, turn on the broiler on high to make the cheese extra brown on top. Be careful not to burn the pizza, as this process goes quickly. 
  7. Remove pizza from the oven and add fresh chopped basil on top.
  8. Cut into slices and serve immediately. 

Notes

  • Optional veggies to add: spinach (add after baking) or yellow squash cut into thin pieces (add before baking)
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat pizza on a skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. Cover for about 2 minutes, and you have delicious pizza leftovers! The pizza crust becomes crunchy!
