Vegetarian Pizza

Simple yet so flavorful, this pizza topped with green and red pepper is an easy dinner solution prepared once a week by my dear hubby. You can use any vegetables of your choice like Onion, Olives, Tomato etc. BTW, the dough from Trader Joe’s costs just 99 cents. All other ingredients are also available at the same store.

  • Fresh Pizza Dough( 1 lb dough brought from Trader Joe’s store)
  • 1 can of pizza sauce, enough to cover the dough (about 2 cups)
  • chopped vegetables – 1 green pepper, 1 red pepper
  • Grated Mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)


Preheat the oven for 10 minutes to 425 degrees F. Allow the pizza dough to thaw, if it’s frozen. Scatter a bit of corn meal or all purpose flour into a pizza pan. Roll the dough and transfer it to the pan. Cover thinly with pizza sauce. Next add the cheese, and add vegetables. Bake about 20 minutes at 425-450 degrees F, bake until the cheese has completely melted and starts to turn brown around the pizza’s edge.

Serve hot, topped with red crushed pepper. Also server any soda of your choice.

    Maam, Though it is a veg pizza, I am afraid the dough may have egg as an ingredient.
    Can you pl clarify on this. Thanks,Srinath

      We don’t eat anything which has eggs. I always check all the ingredients. So, read the label before you buy anything.
