A super quick Italian vegetarian pizza recipe that you can be eating in under 30 minutes.  I’m not vegetarian, but every now and again I will have a meat free meal.

Pizza is a versatile kind of food and you can get creative with your toppings. Basically, anything you like is acceptable. My personal favorite is a simple, yet healthy, veggie option made with zucchini and eggplant. Here, all measurements are estimates; it really depends on your individual tastes whether you want to add all ingredients and how much of them.

How to Make It

  • Preheat the oven to 250° C. If you own a pizza stone, make sure to heat it up in the oven. If you do not own one, no problem – either oil a baking tray or line it with baking parchment.
  • Roll out the dough and put it on the baking tray (or the pizza shovel to transport the pizza to the stone later).
  • Spread the pizza sauce to your liking.
  • Cut up the veggies and spread them on the pizza.

  • Cut up the cheese and sprinkle it on the pizza. Add whatever spices you feel like.
  • Put the pizza into the oven and bake for 15-20 min., depending on your preferences.
  • Take it out, cut it into pieces, and enjoy!
