Creating This Veggie Pizza Recipe

We had this Supreme Vegetarian Pizza with Mozzarella and Feta for our Friday Night Pizza a few weeks ago.

It was so good. I’ve quickly become a big fan of pizza on the grill and pizza night in general. I love the flavor of grilled pizza. It cooks so fast and the crust gets that great chewy/crunchy texture.

Having Friday set aside as “pizza night” makes things easy for me. It’s either a night off, or the only things I have to come up with are the toppings.

Coming up with the toppings has proved to be fun because it gives me a chance to be creative with a food that is familiar for the kids.

This recipe for Supreme Veggie Pizza with Mozzarella and Feta was my latest experiment.

If they (mostly Logan) don’t like the toppings, it’s easy enough to leave a part with just cheese.

Veggie Toppings for Pizza from the Garden

Quite a few of the ingredients for this pizza are growing in our garden. I can’t wait for garden fresh pizza this summer when everything is ripe and ready to pick.

We have 9 tomato plants I’m also growing 3 basil plants, 5 bell peppers (2 yellow, 2 red, and 1 mystery), and a zucchini. It is going to be quite the bounty if all goes well, and that’s not even everything!

I’m hoping that the garden experience will be a positive one for Logan. Maybe by the end of the summer he will be able to eat this Supreme Veggie Pizza with Mozzarella and Feta.

He’s already been picking a few strawberries for himself as they ripen, and that was something he didn’t eat before.

Tools Used to Make this Easy Recipe for Vegetarian Pizza

Here are a few tools that you’ll find helpful when preparing this healthy pizza recipe:

  • Pizza Stone – Putting a pizza stone in the oven or on the grill helps the bottom of the crust get nice and crispy.
  • Rolling Pin – A rolling pin works well for shaping the pizza dough.
  • Cutting Board and Knives – You’ll need a cutting board and sharp knives to cut all of the vegetables.
  • Pizza Peel – A pizza peel is helpful to transfer the pizza to the oven after assembling it.
  • Pizza Cutter – Pizza cutters are helpful for slicing the pizza after it cooks.

Pizza Crust for this Veggie Pizza Recipe

You can use whatever your favorite pizza dough is to make the crust for this veggie pizza. We really like the master dough recipe from from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day to make our pizza crust.

I like that you can make a big batch and store it in the fridge for a week or more. You can use that dough recipe for all sorts of things, so it is great to have a batch on hand in the fridge.

Does Vegetarian Pizza Have Cheese?

Typically, yes! Vegetarians often still consume dairy products. A vegan pizza would not have cheese on it because Vegans do not consume any animal product. To make this pizza vegan, eliminate the cheese from the recipe.

How Do You Use Store Bought Pizza Crust for Homemade Pizza

You can make homemade pizza with store bought pizza crust, too, if you prefer! If you buy your dough from the store, you may need to let it come to room temperature so you can roll it out. Make sure you read the package instructions first to see what all you should do. 

Once you have the dough prepped according to the package instructions, proceed with this recipe like normal.

However, take note of the packaging instructions regarding cooking times as they may need to be adjusted depending on manufacturer recommendations.

How to Make Pizza at Home

  1. To make this vegetarian pizza, you first need to prep the pizza dough.  I like to make a homemade pizza dough, so I’ve shared my recipe below. 
  2. Once the pizza dough has been made, prep the veggies (slice the bell pepper and olives, halve the cherry tomatoes, etc). 
  3. Then spread the sauce over the pizza dough and add all the veggie pizza toppings. 
  4. You can either make this a grilled pizza recipe, or you can bake the vegetarian pizza at 500 degrees F — you’ll know when it’s finished baking when the cheese starts to bubble and the crust is golden brown. 
  5. Garnish with extra fresh herbs, like basil, if you like!

Why Is My Homemade Pizza Soggy?

Homemade pizza can become soggy if you have too much added moisture from toppings. When raw vegetables are added to pizza, they will release moisture when they cook which will soak into your pizza.

How do You Make Veggie Pizza Not Soggy

Vegetables contain a lot of moisture that can contribute to a soggy pizza crust. The best way to prevent pizza from becoming soggy is by sautéing vegetables prior to adding them to the pizza.

  • Sautéing the vegetables before adding to the pizza makes the veggies release excess moisture and prevent pizza from becoming soggy.
  • After sautéing the vegetables, drain any of the moisture off before adding them to the pizza.
  • Additionally, salting the zucchini really helps to eliminate excess moisture that can cause the pizza to become soggy.

Another tip that helps eliminate soggy pizza crust is to make sure you are cooking at hot temperatures. In this case, a grill works well because it gets very hot.

Vegetarian Pizza Adaptations and Substitutes

There are so many delicious ways to tweak this vegetarian pizza recipe according to your own personal preferences! Here’s a few ideas:

  • For the meat eaters in your house try adding Italian sausage if they can’t go without.
  • For a pesto pizza withe veggies, try using my homemade pesto sauce in place of a rich tomato sauce
  • Don’t like feta? Try parmesan cheese in its place
  • Like it spicy? Add some red pepper flakes after the veggie pizza is done cooking or try dipping the crust in this Chili Garlic Oil for a dipping sauce.
  • Other vegetables for pizza toppings: yellow squash, artichoke hearts, baby spinach, or sun-dried tomatoes.

What Should I Serve with this Vegetarian Pizza?

If you’re looking for side suggestions to go with this recipe, I recommend a big green salad.

It doesn’t have to be fancy at all. We often use mixed greens, lettuce, cucumber, shredded carrot, and tomato for a basic side salad. Check out these 3 Simple Salad Dressing Recipes to go along with your salad.

If salad isn’t your thing, try this easy recipe for Roasted Broccoli for a vegetable side dish.

Other salads recipes that we like to serve as side dishes for pizza night are these recipes for Copycat Olive Garden Salad and Italian Mixed Greens Salad with Prosciutto and Lemon Dijion Vinaigrette. If you need your salad to be vegetarian, the prosciutto can be omitted from the Mixed Greens Salad and it will still taste great because the salad dressing is incredibly flavorful.

How to Store Leftover Supreme Veggie Pizza

Leftover pizza is best stored cut in slices in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If you have to place multiple layers of pizza slices in your container, it works best to place a layer of parchment paper between slices so they don’t stick together.

How to Reheat Leftover Veggie Pizza

Personally, I like to reheat leftover pizza on a small stone toaster oven pan in my toaster oven. It warms the pizza up and re-crisps the crust so it isn’t soggy.

You can also reheat the pizza in the oven at 275°F. Place slices on a baking sheet in the oven until warmed to desired temperature. This prevents the pizza from getting soggy.

Supreme Veggie Pizza with Mozzarella and Feta

Supreme Veggie Pizza with Mozzarella and Feta

Yield: 2 pizzas
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Dough Rising Time: 2 hours
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Supreme Veggie Pizza with Mozzarella and Feta is a great addition to Friday Night Pizza Night.

Ingredients

For the Pizza Toppings

  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 c fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 c fresh mozzarella, grated
  • 1/2 c feta cheese, crumbled

For the Pizza Dough (makes 2 pizzas)

  • 1/2 c warm water, about 110 degrees
  • 1 envelope (2 1/4 tsp) instant yeast
  • 1 1/4 c water, at room temp
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 4 c bread flower, plus more for dusting the work surface
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

For the Pizza Toppings

  1. Toss zucchini with 1/2 tsp salt in a colander. Let sit for 30 minutes to release excess water. Rinse and pat dry.
  2. Meanwhile, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a cast iron pan. Add the bell pepper, onions, and mushrooms, and saute for 3 - 5 minutes over medium heat to release any excess moisture.
  3. Preheat Grill.
  4. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce or tomato paste over crust of pizza. Season with salt, pepper, and the fresh basil.
  5. Evenly distribute vegetables over top. Sprinkle with feta and mozzarella.
  6. Preheat oven broiler.
  7. Brush grill grates with olive oil. Place crust, on preheated grill (don't close the lid).
  8. You can place it directly on the grill grates or place the pizza pan on the grill. This time I did it in a pizza pan.
  9. You won't want to step away because it cooks fast. It will take about 5 minutes, depending on your grill heat.
  10. After crust bottom is crispy and nice and brown, take pizza off and place it under the broiler in a stove until the cheese is golden and bubbly. This will give it a nice browned appearance on top.

For the Pizza Dough

  1. Measure warm water into a medium sized bowl or measuring cup (with at least a 2 c capacity).
  2. Sprinkle the yeast over water and let stand 5 minutes. Add the room temperature water and oil and stir to combine.
  3. Place the flour and salt in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle. Briefly combine the dry ingredients at low speed.
  4. Slowly add the liquids and continue to mix on low until a cohesive mass forms. Stop the mixer and replace the paddle with the dough hook.
  5. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
  6. Form dough into a ball and put in a deep oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap.
  7. Let rise for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, or until dough is doubled in bulk. Press the dough to deflate.
  8. Divide dough into two equal portions and shape into pizza rounds.

Notes

Alternatively, you can bake the pizza at 475 degrees F in your oven.

Yumm! Can't wait to try. I'm a little intimidated by grilling so maybe I'll have my husband do that part.

looks tasty! I hadn't thought of putting zucchini on the pizza and I love that idea. I can't wait for our own grill so we can grill pizza too!

Now, that's my kind of pizza! I have never tried to grill pizza. I don't even make homemade pizza that often because I have never found a crust recipe we like. This will be on the menu next week. It looks incredible.
