Quick & Easy Veggie Pizza

This Quick and Easy Vegetable Pizza is as quick and easy as it sounds.  It’s full of hearty vegetables that will help keep you satiated, and will add a dose of vitamins and minerals to your next meal. Did anyone say movie night? Cuddle up, and get ready to enjoy the easiest pizza ever!

The greens in this recipe are full of vitamin A, vitamin K, manganese, folate, and other essential vitamins and minerals. 

To prep this pizza, start by preheating the oven to 450F. While you wait on the oven, chop up your garlic and leafy greens into smaller pieces. Sauté the garlic in olive oil for 1-2 minutes, then add the greens. Sauté for another couple of minutes and set aside. Trader Joe’s has already-prepared flatbreads that are super simple to buy or if you are feeling up to it, you can make flatbreads from scratch using our recipe. Place 2 flatbreads on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Add the tomato sauce to each flatbread, then layer on the ricotta and greens evenly over them. And for the grand finale, top with mozzarella. Bake the pizzas for 8-10 minutes or until cheese has melted and pita is browned. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle each one with garlic and fresh red pepper flakes to taste! 

Pizza is such a fun way to incorporate veggies into meals.  Try out peppers, mushrooms, name it! What veggies do you like on your pizza? Let us know in the comments below! xo

    This pizza looks so delicious! Traditionally, I make a traditional pepperoni pizza. However, I’ve been trying to limit red meat and get more greens into my system. I’m so excited to try this vegetarian pizza recipe! Thanks so much for sharing! I think that I’ll try making it this Saturday after my son’s football game.

    I thought this was a great idea! I mean, I’ll never break out of my meaty cheesy pizzas, but my wife really likes veggie stuff. I do love broccoli though, so even I would partake in some of this. I’ll have to show this to my wife, that way we can compromise on pizza night!
