Homemade Veggie Pizza recipe made-from-scratch using fresh veggies, low fat shredded cheese and homemade pizza sauce. So filing and tastes d-licious!
Who doesn’t love pizza? If I ask my kids what will they have for lunch/dinner – they will scream in unison – “PIZZA!” If calories didn’t count, I could allow them to eat HOMEMADE pizza all day. Yes, you heard me right, it’s homemade Veggie Pizza recipe – made-from-scratch using fresh ingredients.
This is my go-to-easy-pizza recipe and I make it regularly. I combine it with my homemade pizza sauce, fresh veggies, low fat shredded cheese and it tastes so delicious!
Why homemade when you can buy everything from the store ? Well, to start with, I control what goes in my Veggie Pizza recipe. Secondly, there are no preservatives or un-pronounced ingredients that are added and the best part is I can customize the recipe to my liking.Now onto the recipe!
A little details about this pizza –
- ✔dough preparation isn’t very hard.
- ✔I always use whole wheat flour for my pizza crust because it is rich in fiber and protein. Follow the step by step guide below to make your very own homemade pizza dough.
- ✔ Store bought pizza base can be used for this recipe.
I have used homemade pizza sauce, but store bought chunky sauce will work just fine. Two different types of cheeses were added to this recipe – I have used low fat mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Feel free to use cheese of your liking.
Regarding the toppings – choices are endless. Since this recipe bakes two pizzas – I have baked one with olives and one without olives. Bake @400 degree F for 20 – 30 minutes or until crust is golden.
Taste great when fresh out of the oven. Makes a great Sunday dinner. If you happen to make this pizza then share your yum pictures with me @Facebook or drop me a line below! Would love to see your creation!
